I just ran across this good news from Pearl Harbor of a previously unidentified serviceman being identified:

As a point of interest were Japanese midget submarines crewed by Japanese midgets ? :?

I censored the first response that came to mind, in the interest of diversity.

I think I could hazzard a guess at what it was :D Actually I am reminded about a conversation I had with an "old timer" in Harland and Wolff during the time the company was attempting to adopt Japanese working methods. (I have censored the actual comments in the interest of decency :D ) Looking up at the Krupp built crane he said "******** Krupp !! I have a lump of Krupp steel in my leg courtesy of Adolf Hitler, I got a lift/ride to work in an Italian car and now the ******* **** are trying to tell us how to build ships, If I had known this in 1939 I'd have ****** stayed at home"
