I'm American and have lived in the U.S. my entire life, so please excuse my ignorance if I'm totally wrong on this, but... I thought that cursing and even nudity were allowed on TV shows (no matter what time they air) and advertisements (even public ones like billboards) in most European countries? I mean, a European kid can see boobs or hear cussing at pretty much any time... but they can only buy/play "mature" eShop games during a 4 hour window? O_o

Decapitating a human head is about a billion times worse than 2 people sharing an intimate experience if you think about it...

Well I don't know about Europe but here in the UK there is no cursing or nudity on TV until after 9:00 at night. I don't know were you got the idea that about advertisements being like that, at least it's not like that in the UK.

True. One a person hopes that it never happens to them, the other, they always hope it happens to them.

We have pretty skewered censorship standards here in the US - I had to laugh watching the newest "Rambo" on TV some weeks ago when they bleep out the profanity but allow all the graphic violence, including limbs being blown off, buckets of blood hitting the blast shield etc. graphic violence is just fine, but heaven forbid little johnny hear a swear or see a hint of a breast! He'll be scarred for life!!
