lucklucky: Japanese had dozen of submarine aircraft carriers since war start. That models had one floatplane only. They were the nation had more investement in floatplanes.

Gwern: Bullshit research, unfortunately. Copying over my now-hidden comment on TC: > (only 0.1% of cryptography researchers could have produced this writing style — again, please, attack my methods on this) Says the guy who refuses to approve any comments on his blog with said criticism, or to meaningfully reply to any of the many well thought out criticisms on either HN or Reddit — dude, there’s way more than ‘leave Satoshi alone’.

Slovenian Guest: You forgot the picture! “Japanese destroyers Sakaki and Matsu, docked in Malta, 1918.” My blog-friendly crop, made from this original.
Slovenian Guest: Speaking of obsession, there is a whole forum dedicated to Star Wars fan edits.
