In the 49th year of the reign of the Showa emperor on Memorial Day Weekend, (May 25th), on the Sabbath at 11:25 AM, I first entered this incredible world after exiting the inside of my mother. Due to the help of God, my mom had no labor pains. Because of the abscence of labor pains the Doctor was away when I was born. Isn't he a bad doctor?

The Age of Elementary School
My teacher was very good, but every day I was treated inhumanely by the other students.
As a result of having moved, I went to a new elemenatary school. I was the #1 student in my class. My brother was also the #1 students in his class in 4th grade, as as a result he hated this school. As a result we both took an exam to get into the best elementary school in New York City. (The program is called the Astor program afetr the infamous Astor family). We both passed the test with flying colors. So starting from 2nd grade we went to a different school.
Everyone was at the same level so it was fun. In striking contrast, when I was made to go to summer camp by my parents, it was with average kids, so the inhumanity of kindergarden turned into inhumane beating and chasing and other types of bullying in summer camp.
My teacher this year knew absolutely nothing, so my Mom taught me everything. I didn't mind very much, but my Mom disliked this type of situation very much.
from 4th through 6th grade I had the same teacher. he was an exceptional teaches. I learned a tremendous amount, but from the end of 5th grade through 6th grade he started to go a little off the deep end. Every day we had a minimum of 6 hours of homework. The other students all asked their parents to do some of their HW for them. All the parents complied. But I thought that my own HW was my own responsiblity so I stuck it out on my own. (Not to add that my parents were very poor students in school and barely finished High School with D averages.) Besides that, he would often date and kiss and such things another teacher in front of us even though both teachers were married to other people. His anger was very fearful but it was fortunately limited to yelling loudly, andm aking us write 100-1000 word compositions on whatever we felt like, and occasionally sending someone to the nurse if they yelled back at him.
As a result of this difficulty, I did not require studying or doing HW until the junior year of college. I already knew almost everything.
Junior High School
In order to end being bullied once and for all my parents enrolled me in the Korean martial ART of Tae Kwon Do. From now on bullying ended, but it was due to more than knowing Tae Kwon Do. I majored in playing the clarinet in JHS. It wasn't something you can learn by studying so I found it difficult. It required lots of practice, but instead of practicing the clarinet I often ended up practicing Tae Kwon Do.
It was the best in the United States of America. Actually it was #1 in NYC ( but we alwasys beat everyone else in sports and academic competitions while I was there.) Its called Stuyvesant H.S. It was truly excellent.
I went to the average school out of the Ivy league schools, ie Cornell. Why? well in the US, Cornell is #1 in Japanese language. Its also excellent in High Energy Particle Physics and Theoretical Physics. Its one of the two schools that has its very own particle collider of the good sort (Stanford is the other school). My majors were Engineering Physics and Asian Studies. My study of Physics involved Leptonic matter, atomic properties, qunatum physics, high enegry particle physics and things like that. As for Asian Studies, I stuidied the Sanguoyeni (The Romance of the Three Kingdoms), Houloumeng (A Dream of red Mansions/ The Story of the Stone),Natsume Soseki, Japanese,Yausnari Kawabat,üARumiko TakahashiüATenrikyo and related topics.
