Ridiculous Roller Coaster of the Day: Opening this month at the Fuji-Q Highland amusement park near Mount Fuji, the Takabisha roller coaster boasts the world's steepest freefall: A gut-melting 121 degrees capable of inducing g-force levels equivalent to those experienced by fighter pilots.
Saturday Night Live Spinoff of the Day: Japan recently premiered its own edition of the long-running American sketch show Saturday Night Live.
SNL JPN's live format is mostly unfamiliar to a country where most variety shows are heavily edited. The show will air once a month, and feature "the heavy influence of Japanese Konto style slap-stick comedy." My favorite!
