Dentsu Advertising Museum
The Edo Era (1603-1867), during which a full-fledged feudal system was established by the Tokugawa shogunate, was also an era in which the culture of townspeople flourished. That Japan had already developed distinctive advertising techniques of its own as early as the Edo Era might come as a surprise to you. But ample evidence of these remain for us today to follow a historical trail, in the form of nishiki-e (a multicolored woodblock print), hikifuda (handbills) and signboards. A witness of the times, as well as a chronicle of advertising creative work in Japan, these relics represent a valuable record of both the evolution of corporations and the history of common people's lives.

Drawing on LSD
These 9 drawings were done by an artist under the influence of LSD -- part of a test conducted by the US government during it's dalliance with psychotomimetic drugs in the late 1950's. The artist was given a dose of LSD 25 and free access to an activity box full of crayons and pencils. His subject is the medico that jabbed him.

Biggest snake ever captured alive
It weighs 447 kg and could slither into the record books if it's proved to be the biggest snake ever caught.
Villagers say they captured the beast in the wild and now hundreds of people are visiting it at a zoo in Java, on the main island of the country.
The local newspaper is reporting that the snake, which was only recently put on public display, eats three or four dogs a month. posted by asobi on 1:45 PM
