The Lady Who Lives With Crocodiles
 
05:22
Wildlife carer Vicki Lowing is an animal lover, but she takes it further than most. Lowing has been living with crocodiles for thirty years, adopting them from former owners unable to meet their needs. Her beloved “pet” Jilly is thought to be one of the only saltwater crocs in the world raised to interact with humans non-aggressively. Jilly as well as four friendly freshwater crocs are free to roam around Vicki’s suburban Melbourne house, leaving her menagerie of adopted cats, birds, and lizards unscathed. Vicki has dedicated her life to caring for crocodiles, and she stresses that these complex and intelligent creatures shouldn’t be kept as pets by non-specialist owners.

Grinding Teeth: The Wild Indonesian Coming Of Age Ritual
 
11:00
For teens in Bali, adulthood bites different. Balinese teens come of age with a traditional ceremony that involves grinding down their upper canine teeth—a metaphorical and physical break from their animal instincts and ancestral roots. This ceremony is seen as the final responsibility a parent has to their child. VICE Indonesia follows Gek Sri as she undergoes her own “defanging” ceremony to see how Bali’s youngest generation of adults is taking on a tradition with deep roots on the island and ask whether a new set of teeth is “adulting” or actually adulthood.

Crystal Meth and Cartels in the Philippines: The Shabu Trap
 
18:31
At the start of 2015, Mexican national Horacio Hernandez Herrera, allegedly third in command of the infamous Sinaloa Cartel, was arrested in the Philippines' capital, Manila, at the center of a 12 million peso ($255,000) drug bust. Herrera's arrest came as Philippine authorities confirmed that not only were Mexico's cartels vying for a piece of the country's rapidly growing drugs trade, but forming an alliance with Chinese syndicates to do so. The Philippines drug of choice? Shabu: A local name for crystal meth, present in over 90 percent of the capital's neighbourhoods. While shabu's popularity has skyrocketed in the last decade — partly for its ability to allow the poorest of Filipinos to work longer hours — the drug's grip on Manila has reached crisis point, as unemployment rates remain high and the collusion of gangs with police and local government becomes an every day occurrence. So, as Herrera awaits trial in the capital, VICE News takes a look at the Philippines drug trade. We visit the Tondo district of Manila, a port area overwhelmed by shabu, to speak to dealers defending their turf and police officers trying to contend with porous borders, stunted judiciary power, and – their most challenging enemy – corruption within their own forces.

The Women Who Used Tattoos to Save Themselves From Sexual Slavery (Full Length)
 
08:37
When the Japanese Imperial Army occupied countries across Southeast Asia during World War II, soldiers kidnapped thousands of young women to serve as “comfort women” or forced sex workers. But on the tiny island of Timor, local women figured out how to use the Japanese forces' apparent respect for married women against them and save themselves from sexual slavery. These women chose to heavily tattoo themselves—thus marking them as “taken” or married according to local beliefs. The plan worked. Japanese soldiers avoided the tattooed women of Malaka, Timor, and the women were able to avoid the dark fate that hundreds of thousands of others were forced into. Many believe that the ritual stopped taking place in the 60s when the New Order regime perpetuated the criminal stereotype for the tattooed. Today, only a few of these “tattooed women” remain alive. VICE host Kathleen Malay travelled to Malaka to hear their stories. Click here to SUBSCRIBE to VICE Asia: https://bit.ly/2LhqAR9

The Nepalese Honey That Makes People Hallucinate
 
23:02
Nepal’s Gurung people live mostly in small villages in the vast Annapurna mountain ranges. In this remote region, they practice an ancient tradition of honey hunting where they descend towering cliffs on handmade ladders, to harvest honey nestled under jagged overhangs. In spring, the Gurung’s honey contains a rare substance called grayanotoxin from rhododendron flowers that’s known for its intoxicating effects. While some accounts say it’s a deadly poison, others refer to it as an aphrodisiac, powerful medicine, and a hallucinogenic drug.

Fungus: The Plastic of the Future
 
11:15
Since its inception, plastic has changed the world as we know it. It's cheap, versatile, and makes up most of the objects we use on a daily basis. But the material has some major drawbacks: It uses non-renewable oil resources, and it sticks around forever, which is a big problem considering the frequency that we dump this material back into landfills. Now, scientists and designers are looking to an unlikely source that they hope will eventually replace plastic when it comes some of these everyday material uses- they're looking to fungus. In this episode of Upgrade, Motherboard dives head first into the R+D world surrounding the development of fungi as a viable replacement for plastic, and the people who hope it can lead to a better and more sustainable future.

My Car, My Castle: A Homeless Artist and Her Holden

Jacqui, a talented homeless artist with a long history of abuse and neglect, has lived in her beloved car, Barney, for the past 11 years. As a single, older woman, she is part of Australia’s fastest rising homeless demographic, a group forced to pay the price of a lifetime of gender discrimination.

Searching For A Natural High in Japan

VICE’s Fernando Perez has long been fascinated by Shugendo: an ancient Japanese spiritual practice centered on finding enlightenment through nature. The monks who follow it are known to wander through the forests of Japan for months on end, meditate under freezing waterfalls, and stand on the edge of towering cliffs—all in an effort to bring themselves closer to enlightenment. Determined to learn more about Shugendo himself, Perez trekked to Japan to train with a handful of monks who practice it. They led him in morning prayers, doused him with ice-cold water, and took him on a journey through the mountains of Japan. Along the way, Perez began to feel like the practice could gave him a natural high—making him energized, keeping him focused, and heightening his senses in a way he’d never experienced.

However, the journey wasn’t easy for him.

Charles broke the mould and chipped away at the stereotype, to become one of the few male Bharatanatyam dancers in India.

Japan's Most Violent Biker Gang
 
33:14
Japanese motorcycle gangs have wreaked havoc since the 1970s. Known as Bosozuku, these gangs have a violent history, raging war against rival crews and cops. Gang members roamed the highways, sometimes hundreds at a time, with an array of brutal weaponry, customized bikes, and distinct crew jumpsuits. Being part of one of these motorcycle gangs was a frantic lifestyle, one that could easily lead to grievous bodily harm, and death. Youth were recruited from their early teens to join the gangs under the mentorship of an elder. It was of utmost importance to protect the reputation of the gang, to never run from a fight, even when grossly outnumbered. In recent years, with strict laws and police cracking down, Bosozoku have become nearly extinct. Yet for those who were a part of the subculture during its heyday, Bosozoku will always provide a fond memory of the recklessness of youth.

The Cult That Makes Your Debts Disappear
 
13:53
With inequality growing exponentially over the past decades, people around the world have assumed massive debts. In Indonesia, a mysterious cult with the impressive name Swissindo World Trust International Orbit has attracted a global following for its promise to magically make one's debts go away. The group is led by Soegihartonotonegoro, a charismatic leader who calls himself M1, and presents himself as a godlike figure who can erase the world’s debt due to a seemingly limitless ancient inheritance. To find out the truth behind this bizarre story, VICE Indonesia correspondent Arzia traveled to visit the Swissindo Headquarters in Cirebon, Indonesia, and interviewed M1, and his followers. We also met with the manager of a local bank that had been targeted by Swissindo for its debt services, and a client of Swissindo's whose experience with the group was not exactly as anticipated.

FPV or First-Person View Drone Racing is a fast-paced sport where pilots race lightweight drones equipped with cameras. These cameras send a live feed back into the pilots' head mounted displays, allowing them to see only what the drone sees, making the racing experience immersive and surreal. We met up with Shreyash Rathi, Siddharth K, and the reigning champion of the Indian Drone Racing League, Aaradhya Kulshrestha to learn how one can become a drone racer and what the future of drone racing is in India.

The South Korean Love Industry
 
22:48
With one of the lowest birth rates in the world, South Koreans are predicted to become extinct by 2750. Because of the rapidly ageing population this situation has created, elderly prostitutes known as "Bacchus ladies" have cornered a number of public parks as their working areas. Meanwhile, as the marriage rate falls and the country's younger generation continues to live at home well into their twenties, young people have been forced to book themselves into purpose-built sex motels to avoid the prying eyes of parents. We sent Matt Shea to investigate this generational crisis, which led him to Seoul's Red Light District, a pre-wedding photo-shoot on the set of a Korean soap opera, and an erotic sculpture park on South Korea's "honeymoon island".

Psychedelic Psychotherapy: Using LSD, MDMA and Psilocybin to Treat Mental Health
 
11:44
While psychedelic drugs such as LSD, psilocybin, and DMT are most commonly associated with recreational highs and headtrips, a groundswell of academic opinion suggests that the substances could be utilised to serve a raft of therapeutic benefits as well. In Australia, official trials of medicinal psychedelics are only just starting to get off the ground. But a small community of experimental psychotherapists—along with self-medicating users—have been using acid and mushrooms to treat mental health conditions for years, with promising results. We speak to some of the people who are at the coalface of psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy in Australia—and hear their views on how mind-expanding drugs could be the next frontier in mental health treatment. Please note that since this video was made, a medical trial using psilocybin for palliative care patients will be introduced in Melbourne, Australia.

How to Rent Friends in Japan
 
07:34
Family Romance is a Japanese company that specializes in, of all things, “people for rent.” No matter what kind of stand-in you’re looking for—a friend, a spouse, a parent, a colleague—the company provides you with a complete stranger that can sub in for the real thing, with an eye toward making your life look a little more thrilling, glamorous, or accomplished online than it might be in reality. Founder Yuichi Ishii guarantees that photos taken as a part of what he calls his “Life Enjoyment Representation Service” will rack up at least 100 likes on Instagram—and often times, they wind up netting much more than that. We hit up Family Romance to give the service a try, hiring six of the company’s employees to throw VICE Japan’s Kumpei Kuwamoto a wild birthday party—or at least what looked like one online.
