Just a goofy question.>>

That's a good question... I think that Gundam and similar shows definately had
a big impact on the generation of the time. While waiting in line at Anime
Expo 98 I heard someone telling about these female students in Japan, out for
a field trip. When a guy dressed in a Char Aznable uniform walked by the
students stood at attention and saluted. I dunno if it's true or not, but it
woudln't surprise me. Kinda like the parents who teach their kids Klingon.
