In case you missed it, here are some crazy pranks from Japanese television. No translation necessary.
In what should come as a surprise to nobody, approximately .012 seconds after the final whistle of Thursday's USA vs. Japan gold medal soccer match, an onslaught of racially-charged tweets hit the Interwebs. Because sports and war tragedies are equal in the minds of some knuckleheads, many tweets declared the 2-1 outcome -- in favor of the United States -- "payback for Pearl Harbor." Realistically, it was payback for a shootout loss in last year's World Cup final, but even in that case, the tweet storm which ensued trumpeted the atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
Japan Daily News has compiled a bunch of the offending tweets, for the entire world to see.
Most Expensive Car Crash of the Day: At least eight Ferraris, two Mercedes, and a Lamborghini were among 14 cars involved in what is believed to be the most expensive pile-up ever.
Damage from the crash, which took place along the Chugoku Expressway near Shimonoseki, Japan, is estimated at nearly $4 million.
