So much for fixed costs, this time it’s weird drinks. How about "Bilk": 70 percent beer, 30 percent milk? That’s only the beginning. There’s a cheese drink, desalinated seawater (hey, isn’t that expensive?), placenta drink (made from swine placenta) and eel soda. And if that’s not enough for you, here is last year’s list. As I like to say, if you’re not thinking about Japan every day, you’ve yet to wake up.
