As a neuroscientist I have to disagree with the perception that anyone is doing mathematical modeling of cognitive intelligence, yet; intelligence as an economist defines it, yes, but economists are worlds away from actual cognition.

Hovercraft eels comes from a Monty Python sketch about a Hungarian tourist, where the punchline is that someone has intentionally been publishing very, absurdly incorrect hungarian/english phrasebooks.  To wit:

I love the Japanese title, but I didn't recognise the あらためまして < is this a set phrase?

And if i past it in the task bar I can read it, but anywhere else it's little blocks.
If sheep entrails could in any way be related to the weather, i.e. sheep trails only originate where it rains, then you could use it as an accurate model for discerning what the weathers going to be like. Either, sheep shit makes it rain, or raining makes sheep shit. Sheep don't shit "randomly" sheep shit after they eat, it doesn't rain "randomly" it rains after water collects in the atmosphere.

We've been talking here for a while about, while we have people come in from all over, we really don't have any asians. It seems like, with some of the weird stuff that comes out of Japan, a bunch of Japanese would be primed for picking up on Discordianism.

You've obviously never heard of the super secret shadowy sect of the "Ten Icy Fingers" an Erisian Ninjitsu Assassination Bureau, with  invisible links to MI5, Neo-Thuggee Cultists, and Salvio Invictus, (The Super Elite Special Services of the Salvation Army  )
They are so secret, that only three people know of their existence. Me, you, and one other person unknown. Who we must now expose as Reptilian, then dispatch according to Dread Fu's "Death Ritual of the Turgid Lingam". (Basically, by beating, choking, or otherwise brutalising to death with anything Penis shaped)

It's an interesting language to learn. It's much more internally consistent than English (meaning it almost always follows its grammar/syntax rules, few exceptions). The lack of a common Latin origin makes it more difficult to learn than French or Spanish, though.
Is it plugged in?

I think I read somewhere that spoken Japanese only has one tense, and depending on where the emphasis is put in the sentence, the same words could mean either,"I have walked the dog" or "I am going to walk the dog" or "I am walking the dog". I'm not sure whether this would make it easier to learn, as a second language, or more confusing though.

Whoever told you that isn't true. Although emphasis shows emotion, we do have tenses.


Fun fact: In Japanese, fat--as in "to be fat"--is a verb.
