I don't usually post links from BoingBoing (because I assume everyone reads BoingBoing already), but I couldn't resist this, the Half-Life casemod. Damn. I'm going to take a major hit to my geek whuffie when I admit I've never played Half-Life, but this *looks* like a Fallout casemod, and I have played Fallout. Post-apocalyptic case mods. Mmmm. The problem is—now it's art. And that 'aged' mouse looks pretty uncomfortable.

So, it's not practical. But boy, does it look cool.


meaning: cotton, cotton wool

木綿 == momen == cotton
綿飴 == wataame == cotton candy

Left radical is 'thread' (糸). The top part of the right radical is 'white' (白), and a different radical for 'threads'. Thus, 'white threads (doubled)', or cotton. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Many white threads of cotton make cotton wool.'
