    Nathan! You have posted 92 messages since you have joined the forums! Don't you think it is time to come back to Earth and update your profile? It's hard to take anyone seriously when they claim 'heaven' as their current location!

    Re: I just asked.

    To be honest with you, I think it suffices to be known as non-native speaker. What's magic about nationality or place I live in?
    It is important for you and the people who answer other people's questions to be known as native-speakers of English, so we can trust your answers.

    Thanks for your answer.

    So, the sentence ''I just asked'' means I asked that question without any clear reason, right?

    Nathan,

    You could also reply 'No reason - just curious', meaning that that you had no particular reason for asking the question beyond curiosity to know the answer.
