Although he lives in Japan, the OP clearly implies that he is not Japanese. Given that fact and also his command of slang English which would be extraordinary coming from a non-native speaker, I think we can safely assume that English is indeed his native tongue.Hey guys, can we cool it down here? I get your reactions, I had them myself when I was reading the OP's topic. But then I realized that the OP is in Tokyo. Having lived now in two countries where English is not the native language, I think it's fair to say that some of the OP's post was lost in translation.
