Claude Paradin - Devises Heroïques, 1557.

nerv-headquarters:

The “Ningen” — which translates as “human” in Japanese — was so dubbed by the Pacific fishermen who claimed to have seen the colossal creature in the 1990s. These professional anglers were astounded by the size of this monster and even more shocked by this ostensibly albino beast’s distinctly humanoid form.

Said to be between 60 and 90-feet in length, the Ningen has been described as being a humongous, “blubbery, whale-like creature,” whose smooth, pale form resembles the head, torso and appendages of a human being  (X)

Thought I’d share this sort of creepy discovery I made the other night. I find it interesting that the literal translation of Ningen is “human” while Lilith is the progenitor of all humans. Perhaps Anno recieved inspiration from this urban legend.

Let’s Just Imagine That It’s 10 years ago. Here is a plan-it-x catalog! Print it out and check off what you want and put it in an envelope with the right amount of cash and send it to the address on the catalog! It could be fun. It is an OFF-LINE kind of thing. Snail Mail you know? Try to ignore that fact that you found out about it online. Or print on and leave it on top of your friend’s toilet so they find it.
