Look at Japanese cars: same thing. If they design a car for Europe, it'll be underdesigned in our view. This is because a westerner tries to look at the whole and form a feel for the car/website. A Jap however will look at all the details seperately, and unite them to a whole in his head. Something like that.

That is not entirely correct. There is a period after Galileo's discovery called the Maunder Minimum where sunspots "became exceedingly rare", from wikipedia:

The Maunder Minimum (also known as the prolonged sunspot minimum) is the name used for the period roughly spanning 1645 to 1715 by John A. Eddy in a landmark 1976 paper published in Science titled "The Maunder Minimum",[1] when sunspots became exceedingly rare, as noted by solar observers of the time.

So, is it really odd behavior?
