Nukekubi: The Prowling Head
« on: October 28, 2013, 12:38:12 PM »



Japanese folklore contains the legend of a vampire-like creature called the nukekubi, meaning “prowling head.” By day, a nukekubi is largely indistinguishable from an ordinary person. At night, however, its head detaches from the neck and flies away. The flying head of the nukekubi preys on mortal flesh: Once it has found its victim, it emits a paralyzing scream before going in for the kill. Often the nukekubi has no idea what they are. They might only recall dreams of seeing their room from odd angles. To vanquish a nukekubi, you must find its idle body at night and destroy it, thereby also killing the head. There is one way to identify a nukekubi by day: They will have two or three wrinkles along the bottom of their neck. -- http://listverse.com/

They might only recall dreams of seeing their room from odd angles.

Hmm, you ARE a nukekubi until proven otherwise. As things stand:

1. Clearly, you either do not recall your dreams, or are in a state of denial. Or, for some odd reason you always see your room at odd angles even when awake. 

2. You have been made to believe that you are 100& Chinese, but you could very well be half-Japanese. (In which case you are even more frightening because what would be wandering at night is only half your head.)

;D
