The day Japan Surreneder to USA in World War 2

Did you notice how fit most everyone was... Not a lot of fat people in those days, not like today..

Back then, lean times really meant just that.

It's a shame what we've let ourselves become.

Correction indeed - a direct quote from your link:

Jap is an English abbreviation of the word "Japanese." Today it is generally regarded as an ethnic slur, although English-speaking countries differ in the degree to which they consider the term offensive. In the United States, Japanese Americans have come to find the term controversial or offensive, even when used as an abbreviation.[1] In the past, Jap was not considered primarily offensive; however, during and after the events of World War II, the term became derogatory.[2]

Please note that the term is offensive and the post in which it was used and was removed was also offensive.

“...Isn't it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive--it's such an interesting world. It wouldn't be half so interesting if we knew all about everything, would it? There'd be no scope for imagination then, would there?”
