Youtube JP prank videos

Please do not do this when you are near a drink that can spill over you or have something important to go to do. This will make you waste considerable time, but nearly all of it laughing.

Someone at work mentioned an amazing prank that involved a porta-potty in a park being reconfigured so that it then eventually opened into into a meeting in progress. That lead to a whole series of pranks that this Japanese TV show carries out.

None of these I suspect would be possible anywhere in the US. Even then, someone suing for a considerable amount of money is a given.

japanese prank shows are creepy.

that country seems to have the point of view that any amount of mental anguish inflicted on an individual is justifiable if it results in societal benefit by providing amusement to the public. it is a positively medieval attitude, and it continually surprises me that a modern society can see things that way.

if it takes the entire, self-serving legal system in the U.S. with all its patent trolls, frivolous lawsuits and numerous other problems to keep that kind of show from every happening here, then i say it's worth it.

i'm not talking about mild pranks like opening a porta-potty into a meeting. i'm talking about the really weird stuff. you know what i mean.
