[FORUM] What's your contribution to the dialogics of culture?

Yesterday's Demography Matters post was concerned with the dialogics of cultural change, with the many individual and group decisions which lead to elements of culture being passed on or adopted, in an incredibly complex fashion.

I've two questions for you. What elements of other cultures have you adopted? Have you started watching anime or listening to Bollywood soundtracks or eating kimchi? Or, at an arguably more profound level, have you taken up religions or languages or mindsets?

Converely, has your culture been particualrly influential? Have you been particularly influential, for at least one or two other people?

Discuss.
