urk, graveyard doll

My train arrived at Hakodate at 6:41am. After checking in to the hotel, I wandered to the street.

I saw an URK (Unidentified Road Kill) on my way. It could be a cat, a dog, or a new species of alien hamster. It was decayed beyond recognition.

I took a picture of it with my digital SLR camera. I also documented it with my PDA and recorded the location with my GPS. All these so I can immortalize that moment into eternity. Thousand years later, when people look at the picture of this small furry animal's body, they can tell where it was, when it happened, and they could replicate my thought and feeling at that particular moment.

It is debatable whether a roadkill is worthy to be immortalized, but my idea of immortality is the same as public health care: it shouldn't be a privileged to a small group of lucky people or things.

Anyway, I continued my quest for immortality. On my way, I immortalized a group of turnips, some bird poops, and some seafood restaurants...
