liar liar pants on fire

At work today I had a students that to be nice i will call interesting. First, he introduced himself but said that he preferred to be called by his religious name which sounded slightly Japanese. Then i found out that he was a budhist. And from there he went on to tell me that he spoke somewhere around 8 or 9 different languages. When he heard my last name and found out that it was german he was exciting and started speaking "german" which once again sounded japanese. So i thought ok he might be a liar. But his stories kept on going. He wanted to show me some of his work that he been writting, and drawing. His drawings were obviously japanamation printed of the internet, as well all of the other work that i saw. So at this point i don't believe the kid. Good student, but probably full of crap. he started doing ninja things in class, which led me to finding out that yes he is a ninja. A master in japanese and chinese martial arts which involve chi. He demonstrated his "power" by grabing the kids in the class arms and asking if they could feel it in the fingers. Only one of them did. After about 5 arm grabing incidents he had to rest his chi for the day. After he completed his work he decided to meditate the rest of class. it was hilarious how much everyone else thought that it was 100% real. I am not so believing.

wow, yes he sounds, "interesting." How old? For some reason I am picturing high school age, which makes him sound even more interesting....

He was in fact in the junior high, i don't remember whether it was 7th or 8th, but either way.
