(ironically, or maybe not, this is the exact same problem faced by US troops you're trying to kill! The US troops who are doing counterinsurgency in those countries: "Which warlord do I bribe vs. which do I assassinate? When should I try to "win hearts and minds" and when should I take out a wedding party?")

For the past months I've been doing a SECRET ART PROJECT.
This is a rediculous, immature, and probably illegal concept. But it is also a concept that I'm sure millions of people have thought of but NO ONE HAS EVER DONE IN A SYSTEMATIC WAY. Put another way, this is something that really ought to have been done by some enterprising pervert way in the '80s (when the OFFICIAL marvel handbook of everything-but-dongs was first published) . . .. but still remains undone. I couldn't wait for a real comic-book artist to draw that shit anymore. Also, I couldn't pass up the chance to be first at something. So I DIY'ed some wangs in various states AND PUT IT ON THE INTERNET as one does.
Since I don't particularly want to get this site destroyed by intellectual property lawyers, I've put the offensive material up on a Tumblr.
Also here is the art in the form of a zip file.
broken links fixed and out-of-business businesses deleted.
Also: despite the hype about facebook/tumblr/whatever, I can't seem to find a "social media page" or "community" about "PEOPLE IN TOKYO WHO LIKE TO MEET IN REAL LIFE TO DISCUSS PEAK OIL, MIDDLE EAST POLITICS, AND THE NATIONAL SECURITY STATE".
Does anyone know if such a group exists, online or in RL?5 comments
First, there were yuurei (幽霊) and youkai(妖怪), Japan’s traditional monsters, demons, capricious faries and vengeful ghosts. Now, there were toshi densetsu (都市伝説) “urban legends”. Toshi densetsu are basically yuurei-type vengeful-ghost stories which involve modern technology such as TV (“The Ring”), plastic surgery (“Kuchisake-onna”) or train fatalities (“Teke Teke”).
