Japanese fish delicacies are as beautiful as they are tasty. sashimi Sashimi, raw fish, is gaining in popularity around the world. Often served alongside sushi and tempura, it's one of the very few animal products that can be a part of a non-vegetarian raw foods diet. madai-sashimi The most common fish used in sashimi are tuna, salmon, mackerel, and yellowfin, but the key is freshness, so just about any locally available fish may be used. But what happens when good sashimi goes bad? Corpses Outside Chongqing Shelter For the man who went to Guangzhou No. 8 People's Hospital in Guangdong Province in eastern China, it resulted in a stomach ache and itching. sash1 Probably as a result of poor sanitation, some of the raw fish was contaminated. sash3 The x-rays revealed that the man was infested with tapeworms and tapeworm larvae. tapeworm Tapeworm larvae are usually found in freshwater fish. Eating raw or undercooked fish can transmit the parasite. sash2 Eventually the parasite can cause cysticercosis, where the adult worms enter the bloodstream. That type of infection is life threatening when it reaches the brain. sash4 By the time this victim entered the hospital, the larvae had spread throughout his entire body. The man is expected to survive the ordeal, and although he had a record number of larvae infesting his body. However, he didn't beat Sally Mae Wallace's record tapeworm. Sally, from Great Grits, Mississippi had a 37' tapeworm removed while completely conscious. But we're pretty sure the Chinese gentleman could beat the record if the larvae were all laid end to end. sally-mae

Chicken "from the Colonel" is pretty popular, and not just in the United States. They have stores in 115 different countries. In Japan, KFC is a popular Christmas meal, and people order it weeks in advance. kfc_sign Like other fast food restaurants, they occasionally have promotional chicken-based merchandise. kfc_corsage The chicken corsage should have your date eating out of your hand. eating-computer We know it's not a good idea to eat while you're using the computer. But sometimes we just can't resist that finger-lickin' good Kentucky Fried Chicken. So we're hoping to be one of the lucky winners of their latest promotion. To celebrate Kentucky Fried Chicken's 30th year in Japan, the fast food chain is holding a special competition through which fans can enter to win a selection of chicken-tastic prizes. These prizes aren't available in stores, and they won't make your fingers greasy when you're at the computer. kfc30_01 First, there's the chicken keyboard. Every single key has been designed to have a chicken drumstick, a thigh piece, or a chicken wing sticking out of the key. Although the actual definitions of the keys are in white next to the keys, for the most part, it's a coop of chicken, with only the letters "K", "F" and "C" as actual letter keys. The KFC logo replaces the Windows key and the keyboard also comes with a miniature Colonel Sanders standing by, as well as a KFC milkshake and a KFC bucket on the edges. kfc30_02 Urban legend says that some people have gotten a deep fried mouse instead of chicken. We don't believe those stories, but this KFC chicken mouse might give them legs. It only looks deep fried. It's really molded plastic. kfc30_04 For your sides, there's the fried chicken USB memory stick. kfc30_03To complete the fashion, and accessorize the KFC corsage, you could win these fried chick earrings on a silver chain. kfc_tokyo The Colonel Sanders Day competition runs from September 3 to September 24 and people can enter the competition by following the KFC Japan Twitter account and sharing a status about the competition on both Twitter and Facebook. kfc_chicken_bucket Coming up: Where chick nuggets come from. kfc_costume1

Stand and Deliver

by on Sep.21, 2012, under Consumer, Culture, Health, Pornography, Recreation

We've expressed our admiration for the unique consumer devices the Japanese have come up with, particularly in the category of family health and recreation. The End of a Hard Day and Hands Free were fresh and innovative, ensuring Japan's lead in design technology for plumbing. Like so many other things, China has their own take on it. As you would expect, there's an LCD screen and some controls. You can watch videos on the screen while using the machine. It's pink, gray, and white. The user can adjust speed, frequency, amplitude, and temperature. According to sales literature, for the price of $2800, "it can give patients very comfortable feeling." The "massage pipe" in the front is adjustable to accommodate the height of the user. The automatic sperm extractors are being introduced in a Nanjing hospital, Jiangsu province for use by infertility patients. FoxConn is considering installing them on their production lines, to raise morale and keep workers on their feet longer. The machine fulfills a variety of needs, limited only by the imagination and the laws of physics.

Forced Smile

by on Feb.09, 2011, under Consumer, Culture, Kids, Parenting, Technology

Japanese parents have high expectations for their kids, and they're often pressured to excel. Kids are expected to be friendly, respectable, courteous, and smart. And they should smile properly. If they don't, there's yet another uniquely Japanese gadget to help. The Electro Smile hooks over the ears like a pair of eyeglasses, but they're in no way fashionable or attractive, so you know they work. The part that fits under the chin has embedded electrodes that stimulate the muscles to force your child to smile.

So instead of this

You get this!  All through the wonder of electricity!

Hands Free

by on Jul.19, 2010, under Health, Technology, Toys

We previously wrote about a wonderful new device from Japan that provided hands free stimulation for the entire family.  See The End of a Hard Day. We were pretty satisfied, but once again, a Japanese company has come up with a new twist.

Tenga Flip Hole

The Tenga Flip Hole is the ultimate in male masturbation. Now the hottest selling sex toy in Japan, the Flip Hole was designed by an engineer to be both stylish and functional. The interior is incredibly detailed, molded in super-soft silicone to feel great on your member. Simple “flip” open to clean, and you’re done! Quality masturbation has never been this easy.

This adult toy is not a substitute vagina…It is actually better and more reliable than the real thing! We're not joking - check out the silicone nubs and ribs, all the flaps and pumps and gates. Tenga did not set out to replicate a vagina: instead they designed the perfect male masturbation device known to man. This is self-pleasure with a hi-tech spin - use the outside buttons and buttons to create vacuum pressure inside, stimulating the head of your member and tightening the base to whatever grip you deserve.

It's so easy, a kid could use it!

And now it's available in fashionable black!

The new Flip Hole Black is Tenga’s next amazing offering to men who want something different. With all new internal designs, a better grip, and a sleek black finish, Flip Hole Black is everything you want in a solo partner.
