Self-proclaimed Polygamist Arrested!

Unemployed polygamist / hypnotist
Japanese news have been all abuzz since last week over this case. Meet Hirohito Shibuya, a 57-year-old unemployed fortune-teller. Not exactly the type most women would be after, right? Try again! This guy was arrested for allegedly threatening one of his customers, apparently trying to coerce her into living with him and ten other women in Tokyo. These young women, most of them in their twenties, had supposedly been “hypnotized” into marrying and living with him, according to the suspect himself. Now, my question is why would he threaten any women, and why would he be unemployed if he had indeed such amazing “powers”? This guy would make a fortune teaching his technique to other men! Read about it here and here!

I just found a kick-ass software called Celestia, allowing you to explore the Universe in 3-D. It’s intuitive, user-friendly, and highly addictive for anyone interested in astronomy. It is free and available at Celestia. You can download it here!
