Congratulations! You have been randomly selected by the government...to DIE in 24 hours! R to L (Japanese Style). Sometimes people do "shoot the messenger": Featuring Episode 5: Life Out of Control & Episode 6: The Loveliest Lie Dear Citizen: Thank you for your loyalty.

Rest assured that measures are being taken. Beginning today, we will randomly select a different citizen who will be killed within 24 hours of notification. We believe this will help remind all people how precious life is and how important it is to be a productive, active member of society. Thank you for your continued attention and your cooperation and participation...
