    Fukuro no Mise is a cafe in Tsukishima, Japan, with a bunch of domesticated owls that patrons can interact with (have sit on own hand/shoulder, take pictures with). It's extremely popular though, so you have to get in line before they open, pay 2,000 (~$17), then come back at ... / Continue →

    This is the Oppai Taisou Hand, a $28 piece of plastic that's supposed to make your breasts look and feel better. From what I can tell from the pictures, it it works by dragging back fat around and adding it to your tits. That, of course, makes no sense. Thankfully, there's a... / Continue →

    This is a video of 16-year old Japanese drumming sensation Senri Kawaguchi tearing up her drum set to a background tape track. It gets even more intense towards the end. Now I'll be the first to admit I'm not very good at telling if a musician is particularly good or not, but... / Continue →

    This is a video of two Japanese thrill-seekers playing a game of Crocodile Dentist in which they've attached a bunch of razor blades to the top of the croc's mouth. Looks like fun. I'm kidding, it looks terrifying. I sliced my thumb open to the bone on a broken glass a coupl... / Continue →
