    This is a very worthwhile video of one of the most beautiful human specimens I've ever seen in my life demonstrating his sick Dance Evolution skills. He has got ALL THE MOVES. Sadly, when God was handing out dance moves I think I got skipped. Just kidding, I fell asleep at t... / Continue →

    This is a gallery of the rice-straw dinosaurs (among other animals) built in Niigata Prefecture, Japan after this year's rice harvest. That t-rex is stunning. So is the triceratops. Is rice-straw soft or abrasive? Like, would it hurt if you rubbed up against it? I'm...aski... / Continue →

    Curry Shop Shimizu is a new curry shop that just opened in Tokyo and is selling curry that's supposed to have the taste and consistency of actual crap. That is nasty. That also doesn't look like any shit I've ever seen. It should be way darker, and there should be way more s... / Continue →

    This is a video of a rice paddy in Japan that was grown with a Star Wars theme by planting four different kinds of rice to display 'STAR WARS' and pictures of R2-D2, C-3PO and BB-8. I cannot even imagine the planning that went into this because one time I tried planting a stra... / Continue →

    This is the miniature samurai armor made by Japanese artist Yoneji Inamura entirely out of dead bugs. That is a lot of bugs. I wonder where he got all those bugs. You think he collected them himself? There are some bugs on my porch if you're interested. Do you need any rol... / Continue →

    Because electronic store employees get just as bored as everyone else at their jobs, this is the bladeless fan infinity loop set up by the workers at the Yodobashi Camera store in Sapporo, Japan. It blows balloons around and around and around. Does anybody have one of those b... / Continue →

    Because Japan, the Yunessan Spa House in Hakone is now offering ramen noodle baths to help bathers achieve that young, supple skin everyone desires. And obviously it's working, because a couple of the men in there look like they're six years old. Wait -- is that one on the ri... / Continue →

    After more than sixty years of terrorizing the country, Japan has finally recognized Godzilla as an official resident in the hopes he'll calm the f*** down and stop going apeshit on everything all the time. His residency paper above reads: Name: Godzilla Address: Shinjuku-k... / Continue →

    This is the 250-gram (~8.8 oz, about half a pound) mutant strawberry grown by a Japanese farmer in Fukuoka. Now I know what you're thinking, but Fukuoka is 1,350km (~840-miles) from Fukushima -- I already looked. It looks like it was made by gluing six already freakishly larg... / Continue →

    This is a clip from Japanese variety show AKBingo! in which the contestants are trying to blow a cockroach into each other's mouths. That is like, way more interesting than thumb wrestling. Man, that girl on the right -- I think it actually gets blown straight down her throat... / Continue →

    This is the aftermath of a Japanese man cheating on his girlfriend. She decided to exact revenge by dumping all his dozen plus Apple products in the bathtub. For reference, that is entirely too many Apple products. Plus girlfriends. Hopefully the sex was worth it, bro. Whe... / Continue →

    Note: Video probably NSFW depending on how your employer feels about handies. Even if Godzilla did manage to destroy Japan and it ceased to exist, the rest of the world would never catch up with the quality of the country's game shows. That's just a fact. This is a video fro... / Continue →

    To celebrate their expansion into more international markets, All Nippon Airlines has announced they'll begin flying these R2-D2 themed 787 Dreamliners to foreign destinations this fall. I'm pretty sure the extent of the R2-D2 theme is just the exterior though. Still, maybe R... / Continue →
