FALL OUT BOY PICTURE PREFERENCE: #1

June 30, 1916 - Battle of the Somme Postponed til July 1

Pictured - A British heavy howitzer is manhandled into position on the Somme.

General Douglas Haig, the commander of the BEF, had promised French president Aristide Briand that the Allied forces would step off their summer offensive on the Somme on June 29.  D-Day was postponed, however, until July 1, to allow one more day for the preparatory bombardment, which had battered German positions along a 20-mile front for five days already.

1,537 British guns, from light field pieces to monumental siege howitzers, had fired over 1 million shells at the Germans in the preparation for the Battle of the Somme, beginning on June 24.  Obviously, the element of surprise was long gone. But British General Headquarters did not really believe that surprise was needed.  The lessons learned in the costly 1915 offensives had taught the Allies one key point: artillery was the war-winner on the Western Front.  For an attack to succeed, the guns had to pummel the enemy into submission before the infantry went over the top.

The First World War was a war of attrition.  Despite the occasional plan for a master blow here or there, most generals understood that whichever side could throw more material and men at the enemy, and withstand the other side longer, would emerge the victor.   The plan for the Battle of the Somme makes perfect sense in that context, although since the First World War the idea of attrition warfare has become anathema.  British planners underestimated the strength of German forces on the Somme, and the numbers they had in reserve.  But even if a breakthrough did not come, as Haig hoped, the battle would divert German reinforcements from Verdun and eat into German manpower.

The plan was to kill Germans, and so the extra day of bombardment increased confidence in the plan.  On the southern end of the battlefield, where a smaller French army was to go into action alongside the British, poilus were able to climb out of their trenches into No-Man’s Land and sit watching the barrage on the other side, cheering every large explosion.  French gunners had learned the hard way how to fight an artillery battle at Verdun, and the artillery on the French sector of the Somme succeeded in its objectives, cutting wire and smashing in German machine-gun nests. On July 1 it would support its infantry well, making D-Day an easy one for the French infantry.

Not so on the British side of the battlefield.  Although the British Fourth Army fielded more guns, a distressing number of its shots proved to be dud shells, failing to go off.  Even those that did hit were mostly shrapnel, which was good for killing soldiers in the open, but did nothing to barbed wire or concrete dug-outs.  Staff officers refused to believe reports from raiders that the German trenches looked unaffected. In the crowded trenches, filling up with assault troops for the next day. British soldiers tried to catch some sleep or grab a last bite of rations. Most were young volunteers, full of life and confident of victory, poised for success on July 1, the first day of the Battle of the Somme.

YOU USED TO BE A SCIENCE BLOG

Hypothesis: From October 2012 to June 2014 the overall number of science posts on biologizeable.tumblr.com has decreased, while the overall number of definitely not science posts has increased. (Null: science has not decreased, and not-science has)

Method:

Basic, preliminary quantitative analysis of blog content using four (4) sample points.

Results:

October 2012 (1st month of total blog life)

Total posts: 8
Actual Science: 0
Pictures of animals/science jokes: 4
Definitely not science: 4

Assessment: Science joke/animal pictures/not science blog.

April 2013 (7th month & 1/3 of total blog life)

Total posts: 12
Actual Science: ~1
Pictures of animals/science jokes: ~6
Definitely not science: ~5

Assessment: Animal pictures and science jokes blog.

November 2013 (14th month & 2/3 of total blog life)

Total posts: 190
Actual Science posts: ~26
Pictures of animals/science jokes: ~106
Definitely not science: ~58

Assessment: Animal pictures and science jokes blog.

April 2014 (19th month & ~3/3 of total blog life*)

Total posts: 757
Actual Science: ~66
Pictures of animals/science jokes: ~633
Definitely not science: ~31

Assessment: Animal pictures and science jokes blog.

*June was excluded as it was incomplete, and May contained an anomaly that disqualified it from being termed an accurate representation

Conclusions & Discussion:

As this preliminary assessment of biologizeable.tumblr.com shows, this blog has, in fact, never been a science blog. Contrary to both positive and null hypotheses, the blog has maintained a status of ‘science jokes and animal pictures’ since its founding in late 2012. It is suggested, however, that further and more in-depth studies are implemented to collect data on correlations of follower count, activity, changes in blogs followed by user biologizeable, and life situation to the differences in items posted.

Just a (I hope) fun idea for school team for our Candies. I haven’t seen any girlbands teams in the mcl tag so what do you think of an (sort of) idol club? Let us all gather in this Idol Hell and become idols themselves!

UPDATE:

Thank you for showing so much interest in this club!

To let more of you join I’ve decided to split the club into 3 Units!

This girlband/idol squad will contain 9 Candies as for now - if there will be more people interested you can add your own colours and the club members’ limit will increase c:
