I was actually moderately fluent in spoken Japanese at one time, although my reading skills were only rudimentary, Justin. Let's get back to the subject.

I'm actually Thomas, Dan . . . er, sorry, Mike.

I was genuinely curious. I'm impressed, because I don't consider Japanese an easy language to master at any level. I'm studying Chinese now; it's a lot of work, and it will be a long while before I can claim even moderate fluency.

More to the point, it adds credibility to your understanding of the context of some of the Japanese terms like ki and kokyu that pervade this discussion.
