Anything sunk in the sea, but attached to a buoy or the like so that it may be recovered.
But hear what your Grace does not know. In the sea there are three kinds of things: those at the bottom, lagan; those which float, flotsam; those which the sea throws up on the shore, jetsam. — Victor Hugo, The Man Who Laughs
“Wreck” shall include jetsam, flotsam, lagan, and derelict found in or on the shores of the sea or any tidal water. — Harry Newsom, The Law of Salvage, Towage, and Pilotage
Lagan is not as well known as its contextual brethren, flotsam and jetsam. The word comes from the Old Norse word lǫgn which meant “a net laid in the sea.”
Methinks I know where La’gaan (ie Lagoon Boy) got his name.
Introducing the latest addition to my Etsy store - a pattern for Nightwing fingerless gauntlets! Available here.
Originally this was a birthday gift for my dear friend Tigrislupa, so I’ve got on good authority that they are pretty awesome. :) I hope to have the actual gloves available for sale sometime in the near future for those not-crochet inclined.
As a final note, it was no small source of amusement for me that the official name of the best Nightwing color was called “Skipper Blue”.
I can vouch that these are, indeed, spectacularly awesome and am wearing them as I type this. I can actually have warm hands and still type unhindered! It’s amazing.
And then Nightwing stripes make everything better.
This poll showed up on the DC Comics Facebook page yesterday. Amazingly enough, these are the answer options you have:
Let the history unfold as part of the ongoing story
Crisis on Earth-New52: How the experiment ends and we return to the “real” DCU
Bring back some characters, such as Wally West, Cassie Cain, and Stephanie Brown
Bring back the old DCU
A combination of the two. Backup features are also a cool way to add backstory
More special issues like the #Os
A fold out special timeline issue
Currently, the first option is leading in votes with just a little over 252 votes. The second option is in second place with just 92 votes. You can also add your own opinion to the poll.
I’m signal boosting this, because whether or not you love or hate the DCnU reboot, this may be a legitimate attempt from DC Comics to take the pulse of their readership. So make your voice heard, vote to reflect your opinion, and reblog this link so that your fellow DC comic fans can share their vote as well!!!
Can we just make this a horrible nightmare already and move on?
