Fujimoto is divorced: "I have no family, no friends, no girlfriend. I am alone in life."

But he does have three daughters, whom he hasn't seen for five years, "not even on Facebook or the Internet - nothing. And that saddens me deeply," he said as he wiped away a tear.

So he has bought a life insurance policy, and "I pray every day that, if something happens to me, my girls might collect the insurance money and be able to live comfortably."



Sounds pretty smart to me. He's lost everything, and believe me the Japanese legal system can take your kids away a lot harder than the American one, and now he's just enjoying himself and hoping to die. A more responsible version of Leaving Las Vegas.

And if it fails? He gets to come back with war stories that can get him laid in any bar in Japan, and there's a hell of a lot of those around here.

Honestly, I'm impressed. I hope I can one day meet the dude.

If he likes getting shot at and really wants to live on the wild side, he can dress like a deer and wander around the woods in East Texas.  I'd put my money on that over a Syrian war zone any day of the week.

Careful in Syria, Mr Japanese Guy. The hills have ears.

I'd read the fine print on that policy, dude.

Seriously? He actually said that? If that line appeared in a Hollywood movie the writer would probably be accused of being racist.

I know you're joking, but something similar happened to me while on a hunting trip to Pennsylvania. I belong to a private hunting club. A few years ago, me and my friends were on a deer drive and see a group of people walking down a trail in the woods. We were like, WTF? So we approach them and it turns out they were a group of Korean tourists. We tried to explain to them that it was hunting season and they were on private property. They eventually left, but they seemed fascinated by us.

yeah, I'm pretty sure running around in warzones doesn't exactly count as an accidental death.

This is such a sad story. Poor guy has nothing to live for and wants to die.

Despite evidence to the contrary, murder is not a commonplace occurrence in Ankh-Morpork, there are, of course, assassinations, but as these are guild sanctioned they are not deemed to be against the law. Ankh-Morpork does, however, have an extraordinarily high suicide rate, due mainly to the city's view on what constitutes as suicide. For example, walking alone through the night-time alleyways of the Shades is suicide, as is asking for a short in a dwarf bar. It is very easy to commit suicide in Ankh-Morpork if you are not careful.

I have no issues with this guy. Although I agree with checking the fine print on his insurance policy, other than that, I think this guys farking awesome. I mean, hes doing things he shouldnt be doing, and hes doing them fearlessly. Pretty goddamn badass.

Nothing left for him in Japan, so he follows his passion elsewhere. Can't really find fault in him for that. Plus, the photos he takes will probably end up in some kind of art gallery collection someday. The fact that he's a tourist gives a unique spin on his photos - he might have access to situations that a journalist wouldn't.

None of this candyass Swamp Logger or Ice Road Trucker nonsense. It's

Courage the likes of which most people can't imagine, let alone exhibit. Shot at by people he doesn't know for a cause that isn't his...and all for the LULz.

At first I thought this sounded like a Douglas Adam's schtick. One google search later it was revealed it was Terry Pratchet (my second guess, but still a losing one)

Fujimoto won't even wear a helmet or a flak jacket.

"They are very heavy when it comes to running, and it's more fun to go to the front without anything. Besides, when they shoot it's fun and exciting."


he's one of zippy little farks that streaks right by you in Call of Duty

seriously, he might be having one hell of a blast doing what he's doing but I imagine his motivation is crushing depression.

If one of those zippy little farks offers you a cigarette, you just tell him you quit for New Year's.

/oh, and if you're one of his sergeants, don't fall asleep on your watch.

Sounds like Falling Down somewhat, but much less destructive to other people.

This actually sounds like an awesome plot to a seinen series (probably best as a manga.)

CSB: Right after I was posted to a new city, the bank called me up and offered me a life insurance policy. Only after some enthusiastic questioning did I get them to tell me it had a no war-no terrorism clause. Thanks a lot guys.

This is not a dumbass. This is not a suicidal person. This MAN has let go. He has arrived. I envy him and hope his insurance policy delivers.

seems pretty suicidal to me.
Not against it being expressed like this
but it seems like he's daring the gods to kill him

FTFA: "Fujimoto said his employers don't know he is in Syria.

"I just told them I was going to Turkey on holiday. If I'd told them the truth, they'd tell me I'm completely crazy.""

Assuming his employers don't know he's got a Facebook page (or simply aren't inclined to check), he'd better hope they don't read the Japan Times.
 
2013-01-05 07:47:09 AM
Oh yeah, this guy.  Noticed the article the other day.

It's probably bad that I was more moved by the fact that the yen has risen over the last week or two.
