Shit, I'm almost 30 and I feel nowhere near ready to get married.

Saori Teshima had long dreamt of the moment. Standing nervously next to her smartly-suited partner in front of friends and loved ones, a sparkling ring appeared before her.

But contrary to conventional wedding rules, the man at Saori's side did not slip the ring lovingly onto her left hand before sealing their union with a kiss.

Instead, the pair were handed a hammer - which they held together as they proceeded to smash the ring to symbolise the end of their five-year marriage.

So goes another divorce ceremony - a bizarre, but increasingly popular ritual among Japanese couples, who choose to end their marriages with the same pomp and ceremony with which they began them.

From drinking toasts to never seeing each other again, through to symbolic rides in separate rickshaws to reflect the start of a new journey, the ceremonies consist of a string of symbolic acts to mark the definitive end of a marriage.

Their introduction is timely: more than 251,000 divorces took place in Japan in 2008, a figure blamed partly on the poor economic climate and the end of the salaryman-led family units which used to be the bedrock of much of Japanese life.

Yet with divorce still something of a taboo in Japanese society, the ceremonies have caught on as a way to publicly formalise the separation in a way that is socially acceptable to friends and family.

Worry not. Like almost all things Japanese, a "Christmas Cake" is also a fetish. Apparently the term has gained popularity among Otakus who feel creepy about the M in MILF or simply like something other than the standard middle-schooler/high-schooler without wanting "used goods".
To fit into this fetish you just need to have a thing for 14 year old middle schoolers, and you have to preferably be a teacher:

Edit: Granted the image insert code wasn't copy pasted. It's just easier to remove the middle man.

Was looking on Amazon to see what the Kill la Kill soundtrack was priced at, saw the half-scissor blade actual-scissor-sized replica at a bit over $100 and a bit further down the list, this fairly complex costume at like $90.  Quoted into a Steam chat because I was confused at how this was the cheaper item.

The representative of the Union of South Africa
stated that the Declaration should refer only to
those fundamental rights, the universal applicability
of which was recognized all over the world.
The Declaration, as it stood, went beyond those
generally accepted rights. He declared that his
delegation could not possibly accept the thesis that
human dignity would be impaired if a person were
told he could not reside in a particular area. Such a
thesis, he explained, would destroy the whole basis
of the multi-racial structure of the Union of South
Africa and would not be in the interests of the less
advanced indigenous population. Similarly, the
right to participate in government was not universal;
it was conditioned not only by nationality
but also by qualifications of franchise. The representative
of South Africa wondered how many
States were in a position to say that they could
assume any international responsibility for the full
exercise of certain economic rights mentioned in
the Declaration.

Coding practice. I've been learning to code, which I hope to put to use if / when I enter into the field of language research. To that end, I've been doing practice exercises, hence the comment notation.
