this reminds me... i have an acquaintance who's teaching english in japan right now. the only really interesting thing that he's mentioned is that one of his students is a priest in a cult, who has eyes which are constantly looking in opposite directions (kinda like the opposite of crosseyed, if you can imagine it). anyway, this fellow will apparently come into the class and say things along the lines of, "one of my church members was found dead in a ditch yesterday." as disturbing as it is, i find it really funny. my poor acquaintance has had to learn how to change the subject politely VERY quickly.
