Found this on Youtube and wanted to share with everyone interested. Although not the last battleship as said in the vid, the pictures are nice. There are also a few nice underwater shots of the wreck at the end.

Battleship Yamato

And a short documentary:

Edit: Found another tribute with some underwater footage and scenes from the movie:

Battleship Yamato

Very graphic portayal. The biggest but as with Musashi ultimately the most vulnerable.

IJN Yamato didn't strike fear into anyone's hearts because the Japanese very effectively kept her existence secret prior to the war and after the war started, the rank and file of USN, RAN and RN sailors didn't know she existed. The USN's opinion of IJN Yamato was that it was very large and vulnerable to torpedoes.

Funny.....my GF likes to include "waist" and "beer" in the same sentence.

And before Terminus makes the expected comment....its in reference to what she says will happen to "it" if i keep visiting the local pub several times a week.

Sad thing is.....she's right. But.....but honey.....its BEER!!!!!!!!

Can't science invent the calorieless beer that preserves all the great taste??????????

It's a good way to get rid of snails in the garden. They are attracted by the beer, drop into the bowl, and dissolve. Although you should probably better use Dixie cups, sunk into the ground up to the rim. It's a very effective method.

It would have worked the same way getting my uncle Roy out of your garden, if the bowl was big enough.

You know, if I was a snail, that's how I would want to go.

You know what they say. Exercise gives you the six-pack abs, but beer gives you the 12-pack abs.

Science can, but science has yet to develop the "cold fusion brewing process" required to make good tasting zero calorie beer a reality.
