    But that has a lot to do with climate.. social attitude regarding waste has a lot to do with it as well.  But I think that is an ethnic trait that has come down through the ages.  I would call it more a drive for "efficiency" than anything.  There is no ethnic group like the Germans (that I know) for wanting things to run efficiently.
