I was out with one of the last surviving English groupies last night. As we were leaving the ubiquitous sushi restaurant, she pointed out the dirty, raggedy grey Vans sports shoes I was wearing.

"Yeah, I know, they're a bit old and ratty, but they're very comfortable, and I like them."

"A Russian person wouldn't do this," she said scoldingly.

I sighed, and said, "And that's just one of many reasons we're better than you."
