Because I'm being driven mad...
...by a idjit customer who does not understand the simple notion that *gasp* products are supposed to work according to the documentation and if the docs say you can't do something, *doublegasp* surprise, you can't do it! =_=
Anyhow, random thoughts while I was scrolling through Chinese myth-related pages.
The term 日精月华 should look familiar; it's from Journey to the West. 日月精华 is the other term I see used sometimes in stories.
日 = sun, 月 = moon
精 according to a lot of smut fics I've read, apparently equates to semen
So... 华 = egg? ovum? vaginal fluid? XD
*dragging mind out of gutter*
So, we know Sun Wukong emerged from a rock after... thousands? millions? of years of absorbing 日精月华. Most other spirit creatures out there that originally were inanimate objects or animals also attained human form and powers from this.
So, would that mean, to the traditional chinese spirit monster type creature, that Superman would look to be as attractive a meal as Tripitaka ever was? All that sun energy! And look, since they're magical peeps, they won't even have to worry about his invulnerability! XD
*shutting up for now*
