I'm just glad its not another "Tokyo will meet the apocalypse in 3 months..." article.

I usually refer to myself as a gaijin upfront...then wait to see the reaction! Some people lecture why its not good. Others are utterly speechless. And some actually get my odd humor.

Incidentally, does anyone know what they call 'green' eyes? I wonder if the traffic light rule applies...just curious!
