A slab of volcanic rock north of Tokyo, known as Sessho-seki or “killing stone”, was recently discovered split into two, sparking fear among some locals because the 6-ft by 26-ft stone is linked to a Japanese myth that suggests it contains an evil nine-tailed fox demon. What do you think?

“I think everything will be fine if we just rename the stone.”
