Japanese culture shock? and Beatles

Example 1

Oh my. A Japanese translator that John chummed with during the Beatles' 1966 Tokyo pseudo-"imprisonment" (Budokan fiasco) is selling the glasses that John gave him before the Fab Four left for home, as a remembrance of their friendship.

Unfortunately, when John was killed in 1980, the guy trashed the lenses from the glasses, so only the frames remain. Why? He explains (grammar not corrected):
"Sunglass no lense, given to my self Producer Nippon T.V. Network, at time translator for Beatles At Tokyo Hilton John Lennon wore same glasses at Budokan for shows had silver glass too he gave me this I gave copper cups to him very nice man lenses removed whe he die (black) as I/we feel he see us after death in Japan"
What a waste.

So many times, common sense suffers due to religious belief ~ this is a worldwide scourge, and of course not limited only to Japanese culture!

They named this sale
