Heat-stroke peppers

The hot horror of this Tokyo summer—the hottest weather in 60 years (AFP)—has had only one small pleasure for me: I’ve grown a bumper crop of hydrogen-bomb-hot Habanero peppers out on my balcony.

    Yeah, yeah. My next step is full-blown Alzheimer’s and posting the pictures of the shit-raman-I-ate-for-lunch like most anal-retentive blog posts here.

    That is, more than 25% of posts in blogs in Japan have photos of their MSG, salt- and endocrine disruptor- laden junk-food lunches*.

    For example, shown on the right is the too-Japanese “Log-man blog” of the toxic-waste lunches he is eating for the month of September 2010.

    *(And the Japanese wonder why Japan has the highest rate of stomach cancer and girlie-boys in the world, sheesh.)
