oh and on a sidenote

I seen this on a program the other night and decided to look into it more. And......yeah so strange and disturbing.
The Aokigahara forest at the base of Mount Fuji and is the second most popular place in the world to commit suicide. Stories obviously vary to the facts of how many people per year take their lives here, anywhere from hundreds to thousands. Either way, that's an alarming rate. The signs posted throughout the forest, asking people to reconsider, and turn back, is very surreal.
 I'm willing to bet working as a ranger for that forest, must be a truly disturbing job. Going on a walk to find some dead bodies in the insanely creepy forest is probably not the highlight their day. What's even more sad is the amount of bodies that are never found. But as popular as this location is, I betting that if a loved disappears most are betting they ended up there.
 And yeah if you choose to click the link some of the images may be disturbing....but the story behind this forest is truly strange.
