Air campaign against Burma continues; Tatmadaw attempts counterinvasion, fails


"If I know anything from the Vietnam War, this air campaign is gonna make the bombings performed in Vietnam look like your average terrorist attack. The biggest victim of this war won't be the government, it'll be Myanmar's people. Possibly millions of them." - A Cosmician Press Agency journalist

Haelin Torhat @haelin_ft, 3 May 1072918

The IRC Commitee published detailed statistics of the previous seven Interstellar Racing Competitions today, revealing some
scary revelations: the IRC was by far the deadliest track racing championship in all of Cosmicium's history, resulting in the deaths
of 47 drivers, 106 other crew, and 1,376 spectators.

Most of these deaths came from the 3rd IRC in 1072913 during the 24 Hours of Le Mans on 20-21 June, in the 3rd hour of
racing (10:30), Paul Levegh, driving a Ferrari 250P, crashed into the Mulsanne Corner at 270 km/h after both brakes suffered
catastrophic failure. The car fractured into hundreds of pieces that began decapitating spectators in large numbers, and the car,
made largely out of magnesium, rapidly burned the oiled wooden bleachers, causing hundreds of people to die in horrific fashion.
The fluids leaking from the burning car turned the pavement extremely slippery and set it on fire, killing 16 drivers in the same
corner. In total, 1,163 people were killed, including 1,147 spectators, and 417 were injured. Miraculously, Levegh survived the
accident, with several leg fractures and second and third-degree burns.

The newsreel made was reportedly so shocking that the Cosmician government nearly had it destroyed, it was leaked to
Cosmicium News and spread from there, significantly dimming perception of the IRC, but the IRC Commitee used its political
leverage to keep the race from being cancelled.

Despite the disaster, insiders say that safety standards have improved little since the IRC began, despite power nearly
tripling since the third IRC was held; indeed they say that the IRC has become even more dangerous, with cars using even more
flammable alloys, dangerous fuels, lethal fluids and skimping even on basic safety, all in the name of saving weight and getting
fast lap times. The Safe Racing Association proposes a 3000cc limit on engine displacement, limitation of engine power to 500 hp,
mandatory roll cages and crumple zones, making the chassis out of commonly available steel, and usage of E85 fuel instead of
the current high-lead "racing cocktail".

The first race of the 8th IRC, the 1000 Kilometers of Sebring, on the Sebring Raceway in Florida Province, East America Region,
will take place on the 6th-9th of May, followed by the Targa Florio in Sicily, Western Europe Region on the 22nd of May.
ADDITION, 04 MAY: Other major disasters include the Nürburgring Fireball during the 5th IRC, where 63 spectators were killed
alongside driver Eridor Domaan (Ferrari 250 P) by the explosion of a mistuned engine, the Palermo Fiasco (6th IRC) where a
tanker truck carrying extremely flammable fuel burned down most of central Palermo, killing around 3,500 people not counted
in the statistics, the heart-wrenching fate of Michael Donner, who reportedly screamed in pain for three hours as he tried to
escape his burning car, and the infamous nuclear racecar (7th IRC), which crashed into a Sicily house on the first corner, costing
330 million IC to decontaminate for the Cosmician government, and resulting in a rare ban on nuclear-powered racecars.

The Automotive Safety Institute and IRC Commitee, responding to the concerns of the Safe Racing Association,
have declared all cars safe to drive, saying that all cars meet the standard of less than 0.4 driver deaths per race and less than 3
driver deaths per season. The sometimes hypergolic fluids have also been approved for use as they are considered "unlikely" to
combust at undesirable times.

Paul Levegh returned to racing in 1072915, and would participate in the 6th and 7th IRCs. For the 8th IRC, he is currently
driving for the Nasorol Team in a Porsche 917T.

Levegh's survival was almost a true miracle - he flew out of the car with a burning suit, past the bleachers and into the woods, and managed to land softly in face of high speed.

Yes, that's 0.4 deaths per ONE race, not per thousand races. Cosmician racecar safety is that legitimately shitty, and it gets shittier with every year.

"Wow! There were almost as many deaths as in the average game of Northumbrian rules football."
- Alvin Ashleigh


A 39-year-old man from Sunderland has been killed in an accident at a Greggs factory in Durham. Police say that the man, who was part of a tour, was leaning over the cheese pasty machine when he fell in and was, according to eyewitnesses, “minced”.

President Alvin Ashleigh said that “while unfortunate, we will not let this incident affect a Northumbrian flagship brand such as Greggs and so the factory will stay open and no investigation will be held”. When a member of the press accused him of making a heartless decision, Ashleigh responded by accusing him of being “a member of the cult of liberal-elitist elf ‘n’ safety” and reminded him that advocacy of health and safety regulations is an offence punishable by up to five years in prison.

The cheese pasty has, however, been temporarily moved from the vegetarian section in Greggs bakeries.

Havana woman who had shot and killed 7 SWAT officers while they were breaking into her home with no warrant found innocent of all charges, will be paid $1.5 million by city police department.


"She deserves way more than just a large sum of money for defeating practically a terrorist attack, she deserves a medal for incredible bravery." - Kasren Vereyn, (that other) Emperor of Greater Cosmicium

Jackie Pellitar @jacksmission, 5 May 1072918

Image

Last night, on the 4th of May 1072918, the pitstop buildings and several bleachers of the Sebring International Racetrack caught
fire. No people were killed or injured, but the estimated cost of rebuilding the facilities, deployment of temporary replacements,
and replacement of the already-transported fuel is estimated at 1,430,000,000 IC (around US$1,100,000,000). The fire is believed
to be caused by a spark setting off 300,000 liters of highly flammable racing fuel, exacerbated by the dangerous compounds inside
the fuel.

This incident is not without precedent: large-scale fires are a frequent part of Interstellar Racing Competition events. On average,
five of them happen each year, mostly coming either from burning cars or electrical faults from the hastily wired electrics. Most
of them are merely costly to repair, but some have caused among the worst disasters in automotive history.

The deadliest fire during an IRC race happened in the 3rd IRC, during the 24 Hours of Le Mans on 20 June 1072913, when Paul Levegh's
Ferrari 250P crashed into the Mulsanne Corner at 270 km/h, leading to flaming parts decapitating spectators and setting the wooden
bleachers on fire. 1,163 people were killed: 1,147 spectators and 16 drivers, and the race session was immediately cancelled.

The deadliest fire to involve the IRC significantly, happened in Palermo on 17 May 1072916, a tanker truck overturned and leaked
its entire load of fuel. The fuel quickly soaked the pavement and vaporized in the air, and the spark from a diesel engine ignited
the load into a massive fireball. In seconds, central Palermo was set completely on fire, killing, by official count, 3,635 people in
less than a minute, and the area was left so toxic that whatever remained of the buildings was condemned for demolition. The real
death toll may be as much as 50,000 according to independent observers.

The first race of the 8th IRC, the 1000 Kilometers of Sebring, on the Sebring Raceway in Florida Province, East America Region,
is still scheduled for the 6th-9th of May, followed by the Targa Florio in Sicily, Western Europe Region on the 22nd of May.

"I know not what the 'Geo rate', 'deposits' and 'Ancient Basin' you're talking about, but it sounds that this 'geo rate' seems to be an important statistic you need to keep watch on. So I think this is good development? Would need to learn more, though."

"What is a 'Foroned Kingdom', and why would Hanover, an evermore Deoch kingdom, band with it for any grounds? Even moreso, in your world, the English were under a Personalunion even before the Scots foroned Albion in 1707, so why in God's name would it keep you this long before banding into one state?"
