Rental-San the Do-Nothing Guy 

Japan continues to find new and delightful ways to be weird.

Meet Shoji Morimoto, a man paid to do nothing.

[O]ver the past four years, Shoji Morimoto, 38, has built a cult following by offering himself as a warm body who can simply be there, liberating his clients from the social expectations of the spoken and unspoken norms of Japanese society.

Morimoto has shared meals, witnessed the signing of divorce papers, and much more. It sounds like quite a life.
