Time magazine names Pope Francis Man of the Year

Time magazine announced today that its prestigious Man of the Year award goes to Pope Francis, with Edward Snowden coming in second. This is actually a Time MotY pick I agree with, unlike the year when the winner was “You”. You could certainly argue that Snowden had a bigger impact on 2013, single-handedly changing the dynamics of international politics and espionage with his Smaug-like trove of secret information on the NSA, but Pope Francis has in his short tenure, gone a long, long way in starting to fix the tremendous crimes of the Vatican and being a Christian leader who, unlike most, actually behaves in a Christlike manner, with the kind of visible humility and compassion one usually sees in a Dalai Lama. And this comes after a man who thought it was still the Middle Ages, when it was cool for the Pope to dress only in the finest bling and do nothing to help those who have suffered directly under the Catholic Church.

4chan once again hacks the Time PoTY vote, spells out “KJU GASCHAMBER” with the results

Last year, 4chan voters/hackers rigged the vote for Time’s Influential Person of the Year, putting 4chan founder “moot” on top and spelling out the phrase “MARBLECAKE ALSO THE GAME” with the first letters of the names of the choices. This year, they put North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in the number one spot, using the rest of the names to spell out “KJU GASCHAMBER”.

Once again, 4chan is trolling Time’s Person of the Year voting

While the official ‘Person of the Year’ honor is an editorial one on the part of Time Magazine, for the last couple years they’ve been running an end of the year online poll to see who their readers think should be Person of the Year. And for the last couple years, 4chan has flexed their online influence to push the voting to their liking. And this year, they like Kim John Un. And who doesn’t, what with that gorgeous hair?

How to tell the difference between your friends and a Jap
IHCer Lexi sent me this scan from her sociology textbook. It’s a reproduction of a blurb from Time Magazine from 1941 on how to tell the difference between Chinese (good) and Japs (oooh bad). 
Note how in the first paragraph, the writer pretty much acknowledges that this is complete bullshit, but if it made some people in 1941 feel better… it’s still sort of messed up.
