There but for the grace of God go I...

The scene: The moat of the Imperial Palace, Tokyo at 11 A.M. today.



interestingly, the original videos seem to have disappeared but you can still see it on the BBC 


It's not me, but I work a block away and a few more of those 45 degree-85 percent humidity August days and I wouldn't necessarily rule it out for next year.

Update: Now you know (none of) the rest of the story

To inject some snark...I noticed that they didn't tase him to death. And with the sticks and the shield, it looked like they were trying to snare an escaped animal. A gibbon perhaps.

So what was the verdict; off his meds? Mad at the emperor? Or just really, really hot?
