The assassination of Inejiro Asanuma by 17 year-old Otoya Yamaguchi, 1960.
While Asanuma spoke from the lectern at Tokyo’s Hibiya Hall, Yamaguchi rushed onstage and ran his wakizashi through Asanuma’s abdomen, killing him. Japanese television company NHK was video recording the debate for later transmission and the tape of Asanuma’s assassination was shown many times to millions of viewers.
Thought I don’t advocate murder if it wasn’t for this 17 year old monarchist Japan would be a communist shit hole right about now.
"Only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." - Edmund Burke.
Yamaguchi may not have done the right thing, but he did do something and ultimately saved his country front the clutches of maoist communist which was massacring millions just next door. Patriot. “seven lives for my country” indeed.
Staircase from Department SDM - Architecture in Motion Workshop
Anyone who is a regular to this page will know I love staircases, and this flowing walnut example is a fantastic spin on the traditional cantilever frame staircase. Rather than featuring simple beams jutting out from the wall that rest freestanding in the air, these forms curve up and over to make up a complete, interconnected set of steps. The staircase can be seen from almost every part of the property; making it a focal point and ‘articulator of spaces’.

i cannot, for the life of me, understand how he managed to flip like that… His wheels need to have some crazy friction co-efficient to be able to grip that hard that he’d flip …
spinning tire + spinning tire = weird things happening
Honestly i have some serious fucking issues and in the last month shit has just fallen apart. Idk wtf to do anymore. I’m straight just giving up on everything and I’m just gonna let it all fall through I’m just sick of everything.
What if the voice inside your head is who you were in your past life
