TIME Magazine is Eating Holes in My Brain Again

As Amaterasu is my witness, this an actual screenshot of the end of the TIME Magazine online's article on Japanese government efforts to prop up the regional banking system.

I have to know: on clicking that link, did you indeed get treated to images of disconsolate females of Japanese ancestry?

It's the magic of automatic generation of "relevant" links.

No, it's not, it's a TIME photo gallery:

"Self-injury in Japan. Photographer Kosuke Okahara locates a world of deep despair young Japanese women. Please note that this story contains some graphic imagery.",29307,1809157,00.html

Picture number 4's caption:

"Tossed Away
"Tissues used to wipe blood lay on the floor of a young woman's home. In a 2006 study conducted in Kanagawa prefecture, 14.6% of the female high school students surveyed said they had purposely injured themselves at least once with a knife or pointed object, while 6.3% said they had done so at least 10 times."

Not as funny, I guess.
