Solar energy that doesn’t block the view

A team of researchers at Michigan State University has developed a new type of solar concentrator that when placed over a window creates solar energy while allowing people to actually see through the window. It is called a transparent luminescent solar concentrator and can be used on buildings, cell phones and any other device that has a clear surface. And, according to Richard Lunt of MSU’s College of Engineering, the key word is “transparent.”

4chan is supporting The Fine Young Capitalists

Luckily, women in gaming are getting some good news as well. The good news comes from The Fine Young Capitalists, who report that 4chan is doing good! Today, for the second day in a row, 4chan is the number one contributor in donating money for the Women in Gaming Project. Which, for some reason, needed verification

  • The Fine Young Capitalists’ mission is to create media using under represented labour, for unexplored demographics to fund non-profit organizations.

    We took 5 women who had never designed a video game before and gave them professional concept artists to create their ideal game. We created a prototype and now want the internet to vote on the best game so we can make it and give all the proceeds to charity.” - Who Are The FYC, via Indiegogo

If you have any doubt on which charity they’re going to support, and if those charities can be trusted, then don’t be afraid:

  • That’s the best part! You decide. Anyone who backs this project gets a percentage of the profits to donate to the charity of their choice (This isn’t STOCK or EQUITY), as well as an ability to get a say on how the game will be designed and marketed. The more you’re involved in design the better the game will be; the better the game, the more money it makes for your charity. Plus you get some awesome swag.” - Via their Indiegogo page





seems like im going to jail

for a joke


Oh, it’s suddenly all “just a joke” when you actually have to face the consequences for it, isn’t it?

If only more of these people would end up facing the jail time they…

yo i get that NGE has a dark tone and staying in character is important and i appreciate authors that get that

but man

i’d like to read a Shinrei fic that doesn’t end in them dying or the Angels winning

like could we maybe stop Third Impact and there’s no more threat and Shinji and Rei get to be happy together and SEELE is exposed and hunted down and maybe Gendo goes to jail forever

i realize NGE is not the place to go looking for my warm fuzzies but, you know

just once

did a little more thinking about my dumb hypothetical dream fighting game and

let’s say 40 characters, 20 per company, unless i want more later but this should be plenty

well i have a roster for capcom, part of a roster for gainax, and a final boss set

  • HIDDEN: Gendo (Neon Genesis Evangelion)


  • Nia, as the Anti-Spiral Messenger
  • Grand Zamboa (fought as Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, which your team is now piloting and whose moveset and stats change depending on who your main pilot is)
  • Anti-Spiral himself, mirroring the fistfight at the end of the second Gurren Lagann movie

other little things

  • Stocking comes out to assist in some of Panty’s attacks
  • same for Kneesocks and Scanty
  • Simon pilots Lagann as he fights, like Tron Bonne and her robot in the Marvel Vs games
  • Simon probably has a level 3 super where Yoko and Kamina make an appearance
  • one of Simon’s supers is definitely Lagann Impact
  • haha can you imagine Amaterasu piloting a mech
  • i basically just want her in this because she’s one of my UMvC3 mains
  • don’t know if i’d rather have MvC2 Jill or MvC3 Jill
  • i need to check out more Gainax anime

i don’t think i’ve ever wanted a fighting game to exist as much as i want Gainax vs Capcom to

somebody lock Hideki Anno and Yoshinori Ono in a room together until they emerge with a design doc and a notarized statement saying that Capcom isn’t legally allowed to cancel it
