Ancient mysteries

Or modern ones, anyway.

This picture really does look pretty cool. There's a pretty plausible technological explanation for it, but I'm sure it's gonna end up in some "ancient mysteries" web site without that explanation Real Soon Now.

Some random stuff

A reader just informed me that this year's SaiMoe winner is Railgun, Misaka Mikoto Onee-sama.

I just noticed a couple of days ago that Railgun's Saten-san has the same seiyuu as AsoIku's Eris -- and I sure didn't suspect. The voices don't sound at all alike to me.

Anyone interested in Russian guns? James says they're a bargain. And they aren't necessarily garbage, either.

Best WWII fighters

It's time to flood the Duck's comment section. I already offered my opinion. (I'm not as familiar with German and British aircraft as I am with American and Japanese.)

Figurine site

There's a site I've been following where the owner buys a figurine and then does a pretty comprehensive photo shoot of it. Unfortunately, he hasn't posted any new ones since last June, and I suspect he's given up.

There was another such site I knew about a few years ago but lost, which had a far more comprehensive collection of photos. And just this evening, while digging through some old files, I found it again!

They have so many photo shoots that they've divided them up into five different index pages: one two three four five

Some of them are NSFW. So beware.

They're divided by series, and you probably won't be surprised to learn that the single biggest group is from Evangelion.

Fate/TYPE-MOON is the second biggest and Ikki Tousen looks to be third. The Queen's Blade section is pretty big, too. But there are a lot of series which got figurines which I never knew about (the figurines) and some where I wonder what they were thinking.

For instance: why (oh why) would anyone want figurines of the girls from Higurashi?

This image enchants me

APOD shows us a galaxy with a cloud of loose stars around it.

And when I look at it, I imagine what it would be like if one of those stars in the cloud above the galactic disk had an inhabited planet. That amazing spiral galaxy would fill the entire sky some nights. What would people on that planet think? Would they worship it? What would they name it?

(How did we English speakers end up with such an unromantic name for our own galaxy? "The Milky Way"? You must be kidding me. That was the best we could come up with?)
