John Glenn, the first U. S. astronaut to orbit the Earth, died today at age 95.

He later served as a U. S. Senator from Ohio.

May he rest in peace in Raspberry Heaven.

So...2016 still has 22 days left. Wonder how it tops this latest 2016 level insanity. Things have slowly gotten crazier and crazier.

http://time.com/4596318/south-korea-...-sil-protests/

Summary courtesy of reddit:

Spoiler: show
Quote:
- In 1974, a North Korean sympathizer tries to assassinate the dictator of South Korea but misses and kills his wife instead
- A preacher/cult leader, Choi Tae-min, contacts the Park Gun Hye (dictator's daughter) and says she can communicate to her mother
- He gains unlimited influence over her and earns huge sums for access to the dictator's daughter and in effect, the government
- The dictator is assassinated in 1979 and a military dictator takes over, thus the cult leader loses his influence, but still has control over Park Gun Hye
- In 1990 Park Gun Hye's sister writes to the government asking them to save her sister from Choi Tae-min
- Choi Tae-min dies in 1994 and his daughter Choi Sun-sil takes over, continuing to work with Park
- Park Gun Hye runs for office and becomes an elected official in 1998
- In 2007 she runs for President, but loses her parties nomination. At this point the US embassy points out to the US government about her history with the cult leader, revealed in WikiLeaks cables.
- In 2012, she runs again and wins the election. Choi Sun-sil is in charge of producing the inauguration ceremony
- [Park's] public behavior as President is erratic and very rarely gives any press conferences. Her speeches are described as rambling and full of odd wording
- Fast forward to 2016 and there is a scandal about Choi Sun-sil's daughter getting in to a prestigious Korean university and preferential treatment despite not getting the grades or attending classes
- Choi Sun-sil and her daughter flee to Germany to get away from the scandal
- The Korean cable TV network JTBC somehow got its hands on an 'abandoned tablet' in Choi Sun-sil's former office which contains evidence that she was given confidential government files including upcoming speeches and government papers despite not being in public office
- Park apologizes but says that she hasn't consulted with Choi since early days in her presidency
- More evidence comes out from the files and witnesses that Choi had complete influence over Park, from rewriting speeches to choosing/making her clothes for official engagements, and was doing so right up to earlier this year
- Choi has strongarmed Korean conglomerates into donating money to her 'foundations', threatening them that their businesses will be harmed by the government if they don't (basically extortion)
- Choi apparently leads a select group of eight advisers including a gigolo and a K-pop video director who control everything Park does and shamanistic rituals regularly take place in government buildings
- Protests have been raging for weeks about these revelations. Hundred's of thousands of South Koreans have been protesting and calling for her to quit.
- As of 4:10pm Seoul time, prime minister Hwang Kyo-ahn has become the acting president of South Korea as this vote still has to go through South Korea's constitutional court with a maximum of 180 days to decide impeachment.

Test post. The forum is giving me a "Forbidden" message on another thread.

Spoiler'd for being super offensive. A rule from the Truecel subreddit:

Spoiler: show
2) No encouraging or inciting violence, or other illegal activities such as rape. But of course it is ok to say, for example, that rape should have a lighter punishment or even that it should be legalized and that slutty women deserve rape.

1939 Japanese design for hybrid aircraft carrier-battleship

This monster would have made the Yamato-class battleships look like destroyers. It never made it off the drawing board, for good reasons. The fuel consumption alone would have made it impossible to use.

I wonder what a Kancolle version of this ship would look like? The phrase "sumo wrestler in drag" comes to mind. ^_^

Oh yeah--what if this ship replaced the Yamato in Space Cruiser Yamato? ^__^

EDIT: On re-reading the site this came from, I'm not entirely sure if the IJN ever really considered this design, or if this is someone's (literally) fantastic alternate-history design.
