I decided to check out the Japanese section and the intro has me snickering:
"The Japanese have 800 myriads of Gods which must cause a few congestion problems on their islands.
"They appear to have a tendency to worship anything if it stays still long enough and looks interesting enough. Photography has replaced Iconography and pilgrims can often be seen in London recording taxis and streetlamps for possible deification."
By this logic, I am a god in Japan.
There were a ton of tourists taking my picture when I was mapping in the Grand Canyon as a grad student. I'm not sure what was so photogenic about a fat American girl in combat boots, jeans, and a flannel shirt. Maybe it was the fact I was sitting astride the stone wall at the very edge of the canyon with a map board and pencil while squirrels used my leg as a highway in and out of the canyon. Or the fact that the squirrels were stealing my grapes while I worked.
One of them probably has a photo of me taking a photo of a squirrel as the squirrel tried to steal my camera.
