As far as I know, most human languages do conjugate for tense or indicate it in one form or another, although the number of tenses varies a lot between languages. English has twelve, which is actually more than most other languages do.

IIRC, "I need you" would be "hitsuyoh'n da" in Gendo's speech patterns, and "I needed you" would be "hitsuyoh datta".

The main point of idiocy is for the smart to have their lulz. Without human idiocy, trolling would not exist, and that's uncool, since a large part of my entertainment consists of mocking the absurdity and dumbassery of the world, especially the Internet.-MaggotMaster
