In the tiniest ring

I came across a web site via my regular Tyee reading that I haven't been able to get off my mind. It's called Japanesebugfights.com and not surprisingly (in addition to banner ads) they host pre-recorded bug fight videos. All seem to go until death, although I have to admit, I wasn't able to sit through many (none involving spiders).

Normally, for anything available as an embedded video, I would post a sample here. Since I haven't made up my mind as to how I feel about this practice, I'm simply inviting you to read the article and visit the bug battling web site for yourself. But be warned - it's been over 24 hours and I'm still unnerved by the experience.
