    Japan's scarecrows at night

     
    Japanese farmers have come up with a novel (if not macabre) way to protect their rice paddies from birds and other pests. They have been buying used, hair cutting mannequin heads which have been used for training hairstylists, and either making life-sized scarecrows with them, or just impaling them on sticks and then placing them around their rice paddies!

    When driving through the countryside at night, cars' headlights perfectly illuminate the "heads-on-sticks" versions and the sudden appearance of what seem like bodiless, zombie heads floating in the darkness can give one quite the scare!
