Why Walking Inanimate Objects On a Leash Is Trending in Tokyo

Of all the imagery I’ve encountered on adventures down the Instagram rabbithole, none has captured my imagination so much as the sight of some guy boarding the Tokyo subway with what appears to be a guinea pig on a leash... wearing a wizard’s pointed hat. My mind reeled with questions about the fuzzy brown creature’s origins and how its owner had managed to leash-train it. Was I to believe that this critter wasn’t at risk of stiletto impalement or being carelessly knocked onto the tracks by frenzied rush hour commuters in the labyrinthine public transit system of Japan’s capital?

Aries

Ever wonder how actual sails stay intact? I mean, they’re just pieces of fabric fastened to a mast by string. And yet they’re just there, getting weathered and enduring. It’s pretty cool. Admirable, even. But what’s even more cool is a monorail system. If you don’t believe, watch that episode of The Simpsons.
