I had no idea there was that much silicon in Japan. But it only makes the balance that much more impressive, doesn't it?

I wrote a very nice review but unfortunately, it must have timed out so nothing was saved.  Thanks guys, I APPRECIATE knowing THAT would happen.  Next time I'll just copy then paste if need be.
