How the U.S. Navy Sank Imperial Japan's Top Secret Aircraft Carrier

How the U.S. Navy Sank Imperial Japan's Top Secret Aircraft Carrier“No doubt he intends to act as a decoy at some point to lure away our screening destroyers. That accomplished, his comrades can approach Shinano unopposed. We must guard against any such ploy,” grumbled the thoughtful skipper.The first torpedo struck farthest aft. Over the next 30 seconds three more warheads detonated against the massive aircraft carrier’s hull, working their way forward. The explosions and instant flooding immediately killed scores of men, many asleep in their bunks.As tons of seawater cascaded into the wounded colossus, men below deck could see the extent of the damage, were seized with panic, and stampeded topside. The missiles had hit 10 feet below the water line, and on the bridge and upper levels the commander and his officers were not yet aware of how sorely they were hurt. Many had survived earlier torpedo attacks, and aboard less formidable vessels than this one. Even as their gargantuan ship began to list, they remained optimistic.“Expressing the Flavor of an Ancient Samurai”

Pastor apologises for asking students to spit on and cut him in Easter demonstration

Pastor apologises for asking students to spit on and cut him in Easter demonstrationA US church has been forced to apologise after a part-time associate pastor urged children to spit on, slap, and even cut him with a steak knife.The preacher at Impact City Church in Ohio, named Jaddeus Dempsey, was leading an after-school activity intended to explain “the very important topic of crucifixion”.Mr Dempsey said the exercise was his idea alone and that no one else knew about his plans.One of the students who took part, aged 12, said: “I thought it was very weird and awkward.“I took part because I thought it was OK because it was coming from an adult.”“The reactions are appropriate,” said the lead pastor, Justin Ross, speaking of the harsh response the church had received. “Many of you were disgusted, many of you were hurt by this, many of you were very confused.” Mr Ross noted the activity was inappropriate, but he also said the “intent was honourable”.Mr Ross added: “[Jesus] chose to allow them to spit on him and beat him and crucify him in order to take the payment of our debt that we call sin.”“So Jaddeus, in an effort to share that message of love through the gospel and the story of Jesus’ crucifixion, he shared this illustration and tried to share some of the pain that Jesus took on that day.”In his apology, Mr Dempsey said: “I am so sorry for misrepresenting the community, the church, the parents, the students and anybody that I hurt,” said Dempsey. “It was not my intention. My intention was just to show them how much Jesus loves them and I love them.”The local sheriff’s office has opened an investigation into the incident, as has the church’s board of directors.
