Nihongo Cross-post

"Japanese verb forms have two main tenses, the present and the past. There is no future tense."

Hm, well, you would think that would make Japanese easier to learn, but from what I understand it's almost as hard as English. And if you don't think English is hard, consider the fact that most AMERICANS can't speak English properly. We have about 14 tenses, hundreds of irregular verbs, and 4 types of syntax. My word processor once freaked out and said I was using archaic Germanic English syntax. That's what I get for being so learned.

See, learned was a verb, but now it's an adjective. That's how the English language rolls, yo.

No other language spends as much time and effort trying to rhyme, either.

But Japanese conjugations have nothing to do with meaning- they are based on the spelling of the word. And the words are spelled with 3 different written language. And different conjugations are used depending on the level of politeness.

I like Japanese culture, and they have some awesome engineering over there. I want to visit, maybe this summer. Their economy is finally picking up, and it's THE place to be for humanoid robotics. Plus I would be able to mack the Lolis without chumps jocking my game. Not that that would necessarily be a good thing.

Oh, and I'm way taller than anyone in Japan.
