Those who have been reading HD for a while may recall the use of the phrase “Mainichi Junk” to preface quasi-daily newsposts, back in the days when posts were filled with stuff that was actually interesting instead of all this constant spastic figure blather (I kid. A bit). I’m hauling out and dusting off the beloved Junk one more time here today, in a post full of random news that doesn’t really fit anywhere else but could prove to be surprisingly entertaining (if you swing that way).
