She seems to be all over the Internet, popping up at parties from Paris to L.A., or hanging out with her BFF, Taylor Swift (who looks remarkably like her). The two met backstage at the Victoria’s Secret fashion show two years ago, where Kloss modeled and Swift performed. “We just kind of clicked. We both enjoy baking. We have a love for cookies,” said Kloss.

USS Indianapolis Sunk

On July 30, 1945, the cruiser USS Indianapolis was torpedoed and sunk by the Japanese submarine I-58, following a mission to deliver key components of the Hiroshima atomic bomb to the Pacific island of Tinian.  However, due to a series of oversights, Navy command had no knowledge of the ship’s sinking, and survivors were not spotted until three and a half days later.  Of the ship’s complement of 1,196 crewmen, approximately 900 survived the initial attack.  By the time they were rescued, only a few more than 300 survivors remained, with most casualties a result of prolonged exposure to the elements and shark attacks.  

This is the outboard and inboard profile from the ship’s general plans:
