Letter to the Editor: British also have curious practices

Dear Editor,

I found "Culture Shock: Deodorant-shy Slovaks are slow to change" [By Slavomír Danko, Vol. 5 No. 28, July 19 to August 1] a most amusing and stimulating article.I have also noticed certain resistant practices among the English - predominantly male and aged over 30, who often engage in the practise of nose-picking while waiting at traffic lights. Well done Slavo!
