Yura: Japanese Dominatrix

No way I have writers block these days, and I also haven’t been able to stop watching Bed Intruder on YouTube long enough to do anything productive for the past month.
The Hemingway/Mishima article appears to have vanished, the link just gives me a Page is Not Available. 😦 I was looking forward to reading that. New to the site, so far I really like it. Good job.
I think you’ll find all the links are up and running now. Let us know if I am a liar though.
Great Pirate tales on the Cracked site, well done, loved it.
Alas, have you ever heard of Adm. Benbow? His name appears in the story of ‘Treasure Island’ as the name of the tavern where young Jim Hawkins lived and worked, and there was a catchy little chanty about his death.
He was a Brit commander with a medium sized fleet who was confronted with a friggin huge French fleet, he was outnumbered …VASTLY outnumbered. But being British and at sea, He didn’t think of it as a problem. So he orded his fleet to launch an attack the next day. That is when the fun began.
His fleet captains saw the odds and decided “….uh, no, forget this sh—” and took off in the middle of the night, Figuring, Benbow wouldn’t survive and they would live it up in England. So the next morning, Adm. Benbow wakes up to find that damn near all the fleet left him and just a few loyalist remaining. So…he said “Screw it, I’m British, I’m at sea, what’s the problem, and screw them and screw the French” He went into battle and promptly wiped out the French fleet. So, I guess he was right, he was British, he was a sea, how would an enemy fleet be a problem.
But the story does have a happy ending, he survived the battle, barely, suffering a wound so grave that he ordered that his bed be stood up on end and lashed up to the quarterdeck and himself strapped in it so that he would be facing the enemy when he died. He didn’t -heh heh… No, he survived and went back to England and caught up with his captains.
They were tried, they were hung.
Long live pirates and various naval baddassery. Hold Fast.
Thanks for the suggestion! I actually used Benbow for another article:
5 Soldiers Who Kicked Ass In the Face of Death (and Logic)
Can’t help but notice you mentioned Japanese Consul-General Chiune Sugihara in your article 6 greatest War Heroes who got screwed out of history books. However you failed to mention Joseph Rabe… A NAZI who saved more than 200,000 Chinese from the Japanese Army during the Rape of Nanking.
Actually if we span the eons I think we would find that a lot of people were left out. It’s a finite amount of space and an even more finite amount of cumulative attention spans which we have to work with. This is a good place to post some of the honorable mentions however.
Asking questions are actually pleasant thing
if you are not understanding something entirely,
however this article offers good understanding even.
Read your article concerning individuals who had been “screwed” by history. The section dealing with the French army and the fact that many of its troop were from Africa left out one important part. Many of the French African troops were from Morocco and these troops had a terrible record of rape and pillage especially in northern Italy. Also, outside of the Soviets, the French occupational troops, again these same French African troops, committed the greatest number of rapes in the occupied zones after the war. Not to denigrate the courage and valor of the Free French and their contributions to the Allied victory, but also consider that the tanks, jeeps, weapons and other supplies which they had all came from their allies. The Free French may have liberated Paris, and really that is how it should have been, but in their rush to free the city, they crossed divisional boundaries which delayed other units from being able to attack their objectives.
