    Imagine my surprise when I was walking along Makuhari Beach, Chiba - a beach notoriously known for having several bodies and body parts wash up after the Tsunami - and suddenly saw the back of what appeared to be a severed head... OH MY FFFFING GOD.....

    Well I took my time and made a VERY large arc around the head until I could 'see' it with my zoom lens...

    Oh...nevermind.

    also if it was a real head, the hair would look as if it had been bleached, and it would be such a mess, if you could see any, I also think the face would never look like that after a year in water, or if not in water then it would be eaten by wildlife, it looks to be staged if you ask me, thanks for getting them going aquamarine :sadomaso:

    just in time for me to turn around and head home.

    Cool pics. Try and get a P-38. Not the most elegant thing, but a half-way sharp one will make quick work of a can.

    I use to have one until the TSA.

    The Nissan Leaf. I took one for a test drive and was AMAZED at how peppy it felt. It took corners VERY well and was fun to drive. I am seriously considering one.

    Next: Green is soy milk, same with the two that say 'NEXT', then some yogurt drinks, that little one with the rounded bottle top is a milkcoffee drink, green-tea latte, orange, apple and peach juice
    Next: Maple Milk Tea, Milk Tea, Muscat (Grape) Tea, Lemon Herb Tea, Cherry 'Cocktail' Tea, Regular Tea, Pineapple Tea
    Next: Milk, sour/sweet milk, more of the same, the one in the pink with the cow head is like drinking strawberry flavored (and watered down SLIGHTLY) condensed milk, then a mango-milk latte.
    Next: milk, milk, Coffee, Milk Coffee, more milk coffee then Van Houten Cocoa (great to drink before bed if you have heart-burn)
    Bottom: Far corner is milk, then milk, then 'White Water' which is like water with milk proteins, Vitamin Water, Pineapple Tea, Apple Tea, Milk Tea & Peach tea.
