In Buckinghamshire, London a local company, Nude House, has placed an ad looking for women as programmers who are willing to work in the nude.
Chris Taylor, 63-Year Old Nude House Founder, says they are the only business in the world who’s employees don’t wear any clothes while at the office. According to Chris, it’s every nudest dream to work in an environment where you don’t have to wear anything, just clean, warm and happy place to work. Now since most of Nude House’s business is conducted online, nobody needs to know they’re naked. Now Chris has been a nudest himself for 20-years, and he claims that it hasn’t affected his business at all. In fact, he’s doing so well he’s planning to open up a new office in the near future.
Now the whole reason why he’s specifically looking for women, isn’t for the reasons your thinking of. Currently Nude House is operated by 7 nude males and 1 nude female and Chris feels it should be a little more balanced and not as male-dominated. ”Sex does not concern us and is not promoted by us – we merely provide an environment where the staff may be in offices that are all naturists,” Taylor told the Daily Telegraph.
But the biggest issue so far isn’t getting the applications, it’s identifying those job applicants who are only interested in seeing other naked people or trying to have sex with them. So far, seven women have applied for the $37,600 a year job.

Referencing Wataru Tsurumui’s bestselling book “The Perfect Place to Die – The Complete Manual of Suicide”. Aokigahara is know as a dark, thick forest located at the base of Mount Fuji, now know as a popular suicide spot.
Now no one knows exactly how many bodies go undiscovered among the Mount Fuji forest, but the ones uncovered so far have already earned this place an eerie reputation. In 2002, 78 bodies were located in Aokigahara. In 2006, another 16 suicides were reported. Some of the victims even carried copies of Tsurumui’s book “The Perfect Place to Die” with them, which makes this even creepier. The forest is covered with signs the plead for people to “please reconsider!” or “please consult the police before you decide to die!” but obviously these have little power on those determined to die at the base of Mount Fuji.
The mayor of Aokigahara blown away by the high number of suicides registered in the area says “We’ve got everything here that points to us being a death spot. Perhaps we should just promote ourselves as ‘Suicide City’ and encourage people to come here”. Locals say they can always tell those of who is going into the forest to admire its amazing beauty, and those who aren’t planning on ever coming back. They say part of the reason people decide to commit suicide in Aokigahara forest is because they want to die at the foot of the sacred Mt. Fuji and because it’s so dense and thick it makes it hard to hear any sort of sound even from a few kilometers inside the forest.
Aokigahara is considered the most haunted place in all of Japan, where the unsettled “yurei” (ghosts) howl their suffering into the winds. The noises heard here might be considered normal in most forests, but knowing the reputation of this place, people tend to freak out at the sound of squeaky branch. Of course, there are scary stories about the trees themselves being filled with evil energy along with centuries of suicides. Legends say there are massive iron deposits underneath the forest that cause compasses and other navigation gadgets to go haywire trapping both suicidals and innocent visitors. While Japan’s Self Defense Force, who regularly trains in Aokigahara says its military grade tools work just fine, they admit pretty much all commercially available equipment doesn’t.
As haunted as these suicide woods may be, they still have to be taken care of by regular forestry workers. Occasionally, they stumble upon dead bodies in various states of decomposition, usually hanging by trees or partly eaten by wild animals, but instead of running the other way screaming, they are brought to a nearby station. Here they are deposited in a spare room with two beds in it – one for the body and the other for someone to sleep next to it. There is a Japanese believe that if left alone, the unsettled yurei will scream all throughout the night and move into the regular sleeping quarters, so the workers play rock-paper-scissors to determine which one will sleep with the body.
