A Japanese construction company is proposing to solve the energy problems facing Japan, and ultimately the entire planet, by turning the Moon into a solar power plant.
Shimizu Corp, which is based in Tokyo, wants to lay a belt of solar panels 350 kilometres wide around the equator of the Moon and relay the resulting constant supply of energy to “receiving stations” on Earth by laser or microwave transmission.
The proposed “Luna Ring” would be capable of sending 13,000 terawatts of power to Earth. In 2011, the United States generated just 4,100 terawatts of power, the company says. (Photo: Shimizu Corporation)
I’d be on board for this if it could be available to everyone without having to pay for it. But I know it’s just going to end up being another power grab, no pun intended.

Ok, so I just realized:
Because the Games have courage, bravery, and danger.
Because they’re in contact with the Devil.Because they do amazing things like save the world but refuse to give loyalty and trust to people who don’t deserve it.
Because it’s full of people who are intelligent, but not necessarily heroes.
Because everyone is important.
and the “Not all who wander are lost” is a perfect fit too, because normally there would be “Draco dormiens nunquam titillandus”, wich kinda reminds me of Smaug, sleeping under his piles of gold… :)

- a hovercraft
- he’s got unicycles and banjos
