    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 →

    As proof that you can never get a burger that looks even remotely like the one in the ads, these are several pictures of Burger King Japan's all-black burgers spotted in the wild. As you can see, they look like shit. Which is a shame too, because of all the countries I'd beli... / Continue →

    This is a video of the Mad Hatter hat juggler in Japan. He juggles hats. Plus rolls them down his arms and across his back, puts them on, takes them off, stuff like that. It looks like he'd make the perfect addition to my traveling sideshow. Just a heads up though, bro -- y... / Continue →

    Because pretty much everything you've ever thought you've known is a filthy lie, Sanrio recently mentioned that Hello Kitty isn't a cat, she's a little girl. Wait -- so like, a furry? Because she looks an awful lot like a cat. If she's not playing dress-up all the time then ... / Continue →

    These are a couple shots and a video of Batman cruising a highway in Japan on his custom trike. What's he doing in Japan? No clue. Maybe he cleaned up all the crime in Gotham already. Or maybe Gotham is such a shithole he just gave up and decided fighting crime in Japan wou... / Continue →

    Be honest, how do I look? "Dead." Because you only get one chance to make a last impression, a company in Japan allows people who are still alive to try on the outfit and makeup they want to be wear during their open-casket funeral (plus choose a custom coffin). Me? I don't... / Continue →

    This is a short video from Japan of an army of Pikachus preparing for battle in Akarenga Park, Yokohama. You think they're going to battle one of those Kaiju from Pacific Rim? Because I'd suggest recruiting some Charizards and Blastoises while you're at it. You gotta diversi... / Continue →

    Meet Mr. Knocky. He's a battery-free drum toy controlled by swinging two hand-held triggers. Not digging the sound of his plastic drums? No worries, you can swap them out for other percussion surfaces like a soup can or Pringles can. He is not recommended for use drumming o... / Continue →

    What the -- are you blowing a seagull?! This is the $135 Facial Fitness Pao from Japan. It allegedly firms and tightens your face. I've got the feeling it doesn't work that well. Plus for some reason famed Portuguese footballer Cristiano Ronaldo is the spokesperson. Pfft, ... / Continue →

    PROTIP: Start your volume low. This is a video of a guitarist recreating the cries of disgraced Japanese politician Ryutaro Nonomura. Nonomura tried to claim around $30,000 in travel expenses without providing any proof of his spending. Whatever, I would have done the exac... / Continue →

    These are shots of some of the foot items available at the Pikachu Cafe in Japan. "Foot?" Obviously I meant food. The cafe will be open for a limited time (until August 31st) outside the Pokemon XY movie exhibit at Tokyo City View in Roppongi Hills. I want that burger and t... / Continue →

    These are the $40 icePhone iPhone cases made by HameeTV and available from this Japanese online store. They look like honest to God ice cream bars. That makes zero sense, but now I want an iPhone case that looks like a realistic sandwich. Holy shit, that guy over there is tr... / Continue →
