The other day I heard how a group of rural schoolgirls were convinced that they had the power to turn people who threatened or disliked them (with a negative attitude towards them) into baboons. It seemed like a silly teenage-thing, untill I discovered that others, eg adults, were totally convinced of the truth of this, and greatly feared these girls.

The powers of whichcraft, one discovers, is not necessarily about the 'real' in a western sense of the word, but about the belief...

Anyway, I just think that baboons in africa equals lions in Japan? It's all possible ;-)
