comment How far were women able to advance in the Gestapo?
@RodolfoDias or... do it anyway and who cares. After all, you are writing a slightly alternate History, so minor variations might be ok.

Because it's shiny!

comment Did the communication lag become a problem for the ever expanding Roman Empire?
This is nice, but how does this answer the question?

comment What was Libya's form of direct democracy (Jamahiria) like in practice?
The fun thing is that not only this was a dictatorship masked as democracy, but it wasn't even direct in the first place: it was representative!

comment What can you tell about a society from its architecture?
@jwenting are there old farms so common? Castles are built do endure wars, while I expect farms to be torn down and rebuilt quite often (hence having no historical value).

I believe his question actually is "why is this term (a language of a specific group of people) came to have its current meaning?".

comment Why did the musket become the standard infantry combat weapon in European armies around 1700?
I would guess the bayonet was only a quick fallback "I need to defend myself now", and that they also carried a proper melee weapon. But that's just a guess.

comment Which city has been captured most frequently?
Guys, if your answer is "some random canditates which might be the answer", then it is not an answer. Might be useful, but still it's not an answer. Post it in a comment. Thanks.

comment Why did the British control Hong Kong over 99 years?
If I'm not mistaken, he tried to ask why it was reduced to "only 99 years", instead of being "in perpetuity" like it was.

comment What were the advantages of sheepfolds?
@RSConley it may be, but I wouldn't be sure. If it's too technical, it belongs to that specific field anyway.

comment Is there actual debate over which country (Brazil or Portugal) is the successor state to the original Portugal?
This might have been an interesting question in an alternate world were this claim was actually made. But it hasn't. It has exactly zero basis. So it's pointless.
