A community of dwarves has set up its own village to escape discrimination from normal sized people.

Everyone in the mountain commune in Kunming, southern China, must be under 4ft 3ins tall and they run their own police force and fire brigade from their 120 residents.

Now the group has turned itself into a tourist attraction by building mushroom houses and living and dressing like fairy tale characters.

“As small people we are used to being pushed around and exploited by big people. But here there aren’t any big people and everything we do is for us,” said spokesman Fu Tien.

Seven Riddles Suggest a Secret City Beneath Tokyo

Shun Akiba, a former high-level foreign reporter, has identified hundreds of kilometers of Tokyo tunnels whose purpose is unknown and whose very existence is denied.

During the Gulf War in 1991, Shun Akiba was one of only two foreign journalists reporting from Baghdad, along with Peter Arnett of CNN. With such experience and expertise, it would be reasonable to imagine him in great demand right now. Wrong.

Shun is on some kind of invisible blacklist. His book “Teito Tokyo Kakusareta Chikamono Himitsu” (“Imperial City Tokyo: Secret of a Hidden Underground Network”), published by Yosensha in late 2002, is already in its fifth edition. Yet Shun has found it impossible to get the media to take serious note, write reviews or offer interviews.

Route 36: The World’s First Cocaine Bar

“Welcome to Route 36, will that be ‘normal’ cocaine or ‘strong’ cocaine with your complimentary bottled water?”  Keeping up with today’s drug theme, what’s being described by The Guardian as the world’s first cocaine bar (first “official,” anyway) is now open for business in Boliva.  With its corrupt officials and “anything goes” atmosphere, Bolivia, it seems, offers such outlaw operations an ideal business climate.  Ideal, though, isn’t perfect:

Since they are an after-hours club and serve cocaine the neighbours tend to complain pretty fast.  So they move all the time.  Maybe if they are lucky they last three months in the same place, but often it is just two weeks.  Route 36 is a movable feast.”

Apologies to Frank Loesser, but I guess this makes Route 36 the oldest established permanent floating coke bar in South America.  But unlike Damon Runyon‘s crew of crap players, what do these guests rely on for amusement?  Why, Jenga, of course.

And much like those towers of falling blocks, attempts to curb Bolivia’s exploding cocaine economy is crumbling fast: President Evo Morales, himself a cocoa grower, is not only fighting for the rights of his fellow growers, he recently booted the US Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) out of Bolivia.

Happy to find this long Tim and Eric interview on VanityFair.com. We certainly know which side of the Tim and Eric equation we’re on here at Dangerous Minds. We love them!

You’ve just finished shooting the fifth season of Awesome Show. Is this going to be the big one, when Tim and Eric finally win over the hearts and minds of the mainstream?

Eric Wareheim: Season Cinco represents a very dark side of the Awesome Show series. I think people are going to be very scared and very disturbed by it.

That is the worst pitch for a TV show ever.

Eric Wareheim: Really? You think so?
