With "ji" as in hemorrhoids written in Hirigana its "chi" with dots instead of "shi",you know you dont normally put dots on "chi" right?
but when i was lookin' it up in the dictionary i was really surprisd because they'd write it with a dotted "shi"
also you know how they write "dolphin" as "sea pig" but using the same character for "pig" i wonder why "river pig" is read as "puffer fish"even though they live in the sea.....
