here we go again. This happened last month in Ibaraki. Just another nail in the coffin of Japanese society. One's first thoughts would be towards the Yaks, but it may have been your neighbor.

Maybe it was from some back alley surgery gone wrong. Or maybe its prosthetic and the J-cops havent realised yet, after all , they did give a kerosine soaked loony a lighter.

I see spaces for only another nail or two before the lid is sealed tight.
