Sexy Suicide?

The BBC writes:

In Japan, the internet has been blamed for a spate of group suicides which appear to have been arranged in online chat rooms.


It had taken days of online research, emails and text messages to bring us here - face to face with a member of Japan's "internet suicide" community.

It is a growing, and morbidly frank underworld of chat rooms and websites with names like "Suicide Club," where thousands of (mainly young) people meet and talk and plan their deaths.

What can I say? People visiting sites to find new friend to commit suicide with. Seeing as this is a sort of "culture" thing, once again Japan shows that it really is one of the strangest places on earth.
