http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Circumcision

The majority of males are circumcised in the following countries:

Well, yes, but we are talking routine infant circumcision here in this forum and with a couple of exceptions, all of those countries are practicing Muslim religious circumcision that is not performed on infants. For instance, South Africa is not a Muslim or majority circumcising country and I have questions about Albania as well.

None of the Asian countries practice routine (non-ritual) infant circumcision.

Indeed, you are correct, Frank. ...with a couple of exceptions.

Actually, his father is Hawaiian/Chinese and his mother is British.

"Keanu Charles Reeves was born September 2, 1964 in Beirut, Lebanon, to Samuel Nowlin Reeves (half-Hawaiian, half-Chinese) and Patric Taylor (English). There was a move to Australia for a year where his first sister Kim was born in 1966. A second (half) sister, Karina, was born in 1976. Keanu (Key-ah-nu) means "cool breeze over the mountains" in Hawaiian (For those who wish to get technical, the translation is relative. Hawaiian is actually a picture language, and in many cases deals with concepts or ideas more than just specific words. "Keanu" -- what a concept!) "

Sooo...? We're both right. Right? :LOL I do know that he is a Canadian citizen but didn't know his parental units' backgrounds, or much else about him.

I loved him in Point Break, too... though now that I've seen the Matrix series, it's hard to pick a favourite movie.
