1982 stop-motion short film written, designed and directed by Tim Burton and Rick Heinrichs narrated by Vincent Price. Vincent Price later said that the film was "the most gratifying thing that ever happened. It was immortality—better than a star on Hollywood Boulevard."
I'm sure most of us dudes can relate when it comes to having "technical difficulties" whenever we have too much booze. Maybe it isn't so bad to have the world's smartest people busy making bombs and a cure for the "booze boner". TheSun Reports:
"The new tipple, which is guaranteed to beat brewer's droop, goes on sale this week.
Downing just three bottles is equivalent to taking one of the blue pills which enhance men's sexual performance.
The brew, called Royal Virility Performance, has been specially created to mark the forthcoming Royal Wedding.
The 7.5 per cent ABV India Pale Ale also contains extra aphrodisiacs including Horny Goat Weed and even chocolate.
The label features the words 'Arise Prince Willy' and 'Celebrate Big Willy Style' — and makers BrewDog have sent several bottles to Prince William for the wedding night.
Just 40 bottles of the £10 tipple will be produced initially, and will go on sale on April 29 at BrewDog.com. All the proceeds go to the charity Centrepoint, which Wills supports. But buyers will be limited to one bottle each due to the powerful effects.
The firm plan to continue production if it is a success.
A string of British brewers have already created special edition royal wedding beers, including Adnams' Royal Wedding Ale and Castle Rock Brewery's 'Kiss Me Kate'.
James Watt, co-founder of BrewDog, said: "As the bottle says, this is about consummation, not commemoration.'"
Pretty weird... why the hell have so many decided to kill themselves here?
"Aokigahara is a woodland at the base of Mount Fuji in Japan that makes The Blair Witch Project forest look like Winnie the Pooh's Hundred Acre Wood. It probably has something to do with all the dead bodies scattered around.
What Niagara Falls is to weddings, Aokigahara is to suicide. How many suicides does it takes for a place to get that reputation? A dozen? Fifty?
More than 500 fucking people have taken their own lives in Aokigahara since the 1950s.
The trend has supposedly started after Seicho Matsumoto published his novel Kuroi Kaiju (Black Sea of Trees) where two of his characters commit suicide there. After that-always eager to prove they are bizarrely susceptible to suggestion-hundreds of Japanese people have hanged themselves among the countless trees of the Aokigahara forest, which is reportedly so thick that even in high noon it's not hard to find places completely surrounded by darkness.
Besides bodies and homemade nooses, the area is littered with signs displaying such uplifting messages like "Life is a precious thing! Please reconsider!" or "Think of your family!"
In the 70s, the problem got national attention and the Japanese government began doing annual sweeps of the forest in search of bodies. In 2002, they found 78. But who knows how many they missed? In all likelihood there probably is a hanged person somewhere in Aokigahara on any given day. You can see some of them here. WARNING, NSFS (Not Safe For Soul).
By the way, if an entire dark forest full of hanged corpses wasn't bad enough, a few years ago some people noticed that a lot of the dead in Aokigahara probably had cash or jewelry on them. Thus began the proud Japanese tradition of Aokigahara Scavenging where people are running around the Death Forest, looking for dead guys to loot."
