Yeah but you guys…SHE’S A CAT!!!!!!!!!!!
Hey guys… remember that time Chewie was Captain Marvel?
She looks more like a fox…… >.>
Is it wrong if I am kind of crushing on Captain Meow-vel here? O.O
Wolf Children: Ame & Yuki (おおかみこどもの雨と雪 Ōkami Kodomo no Ame to Yuki), 2012
Director: Mamoru Hosoda
- "Hana is a 19-year-old student who falls in a "fairy-tale like" love with a "wolf man". Over the course of the 13-year story Hana gives birth to two children - Yuki, and Ame, or "Snow and Rain". At first the family quietly lives in the city trying to hide their wolf heritage, but Hana makes the decision to move to a rural town, far from their previous city life, in order to let her children grow up how they choose - as either human or wolf.”
Reblogging because you MUST SEE THIS.
A sad end to the Year of Luigi in which Danny Wells, who played him on the Super Mario Bros. Super Show both in voice and in person, passed away last week. A lot of people think the live action segments of the show were pretty campy and lame, but growing up, to see the Mario Bros. in person like that was amazing to me and I always thought Luigi was such a slick, cool guy. R.I.P., Danny.
Couldn’t have said it better myself.
aww both Mario and Luigi are dead. :<
3D printing with stem cells could lead to printable organs
A potentially breakthrough 3D-printing process using human stem cells could be the precursor to printing organs from a patient’s own cells.
Some day in the future, when you need a kidney transplant, you may get a 3D-printed organ created just for you. If scientists are able to achieve that milestone, they may look back fondly at a breakthrough printing process pioneered by researchers at Heriot-Watt University in Scotland in collaboration with Roslin Cellab, a stem cell technology company.
The printer creates 3D spheroids using delicate embryonic cell cultures floating in a “bio ink” medium. They end up looking like little bubbles. Each droplet can contain as few as five stem cells. Basically, this comes down to the printer “ink” being stem cells rather than plastic or another material.
Dr. Will Shu is part of the research team working on the project. “In the longer term, we envisage the technology being further developed to create viable 3D organs for medical implantation from a patient’s own cells, eliminating the need for organ donation, immune suppression, and the problem of transplant rejection,” Shu said in a release from Heriot-Watt.
Perhaps most importantly, the stem cells survived the printing process and remained viable. Shu says this is the first time human embryonic stem cells have been 3D printed. Printing out organs may be far down the line, but it’s just one potential application. The method could also be used to print out human tissue for drug testing.
The research results have just been published in Biofabrication under the title “Development of a valve-based cell printer for the formation of human embryonic stem cell spheroid aggregates.”
I don’t think this is “could be” scenario. This IS happening right now, and we absolutely will be using 3D-printing technology in this way, probably sooner than we even expect.
Amazon Prime Air is a delivery system Amazon Inc. plans to implement into their service by the year 2015. Small packages purchased through Amazon.com will be shipped to the buyer via air drone in as little as 30 minutes.
While on the one hand I can see how this could go horribly wrong, honestly the idea of not having to wait days/weeks for postal workers to deliver my parcels is incredibly enticing.
Would you believe I work at this company which try new and innovative things. ^_^
THIS SHOW GIVES NO FUCKS
I was inspired to start this up at the school I teach at.
Thanks Geek and Sundry and especially you Mr. Wheaton!!!
And this is what happens when a masterfully crafted katana collides with a masterfully crafted longsword.
Suck it, katana
Hey guys, Sigil here! I have been authorized to give you another taste of some Furoticon Online!
Here we have the effect of opening a booster pack. The cards remain hidden until you click them. The SUSPENSE!!!
And also, some great art by FishyBoner that shows our storefront. Where did that sneaky guy come from? I wonder what’s down that alley…
A mashup of Comcept’s “Mighty No. 9” and Wayforward’s “Shantae.” Both are funded kickstarter games that you should check out:

Oh, the colorssss! Damn you, red and gold! I really want to use you but you keep having complimentary problems. It’s for the best. I briefly tried a red version of this, but it turned her into Iron Man. So, you’re blue, baby. I think what finally made everything click was just making her pants black. After that, trying to zone everything out was easy.
The thing about combining genders is that you have to pick one or the other. Or, you know, get into some more confusing, sexy territory. But anyway. Yeah, I decided for a female base since most of the details were going to be Mighty 9’s. If I had gone male, it would have basically been Mighty 9 in genie pants with more skin and purple hair for some reason. I could have done it, but whoo. Nope.
Otherwise, a pretty easy mashup. Both are around the same size and a lot of the details are based on the same general body proportions. The biggest challenge was trying to turn mech shoes into genie shoes. Again, like with the prior Shantae mashup, I had to resort to an exposed stomach (and shoes) to get the tonality of everything to come together. Pretty annoying (not as much to me as the Knight version), but it must be done.
I liked this result. I didn’t expect it to come out well while working in color - that’s for sure - but once I decided to go with black as a main, everything came together nicely. Then again, I really like black bases for outfits.
