    Miyu Kojima Creates Miniature Replicas of Lonely Deaths

    Twenty six-year old Miyu Kojima works for a company that cleans up after kodokushi (孤独死) or lonely deaths: a Japanese phenomenon of people dying alone and remaining undiscovered for a long period of time. The instances first began to be reported around 2000, and are thought to be a product of increased social isolation coupled with a greying population.

    Part art therapy and part public service campaign, Kojima spends a large portion of her free time recreating detailed miniature replicas of the rooms she has cleaned. A word of caution: although recreated without the corpses, some of the replicas can be quite disturbing.

    The DC Comics version of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer in action during the 50s and early 60s. Also at one point during the cowboy Christmas bandits one he gets tied-up and is hung from the top of a cave, and escapes by burning the ropes off.

    How was Rudolph never a member of the Legion of Super-Pets! Or at least taken in by Batman during the off-season.
