Kotaku EastEast is your slice of Asian internet culture, bringing you the latest talking points from Japan, Korea, China and beyond. Tune in every morning from 4am to 8am.  

We all have worries: school, work, friends, and families. This image, which is making the internet rounds in Japan, apparently can show just how much you worry.


So, if you have few worries, then the second image in the above gallery will probably move slightly, as if its fluttering in the breeze. If you are worrying about many things, it's possible the movement will be intense.

This is hardly scientific, and the reaction will vary from person to person. Even as someone who stares at a computer and video games all day, the image made me somewhat uncomfortable. So if you are one to get easily motion sick, you might want to sit this round out.

As someone in Japan pointed out, the only ones who don't have worries are dead people.
