And a Thirty Aught Six

So it's been a year...

And I haven't posted squat. Oh well. I saw something too funny not to post. It's the quote of the #TIMEINTERVAL:
As a matter of historical fact however, Yamamoto was dead before the plane went down. I believe the Japanese report was that he was struck by at least one 50 caliber slug in the strafing run prior to the crash.

Ouch. Hard to catch a .50 round and not snuff it. Another reason John Browning kicks Mitt Romney's butt in the "my favorite Mormon" contest.

By a commenter over at Volokh's place, in a discussion about the scene in Cryptonomicon about the raid on Yamamato's aircraft.
