comment What a sheepfold used for?
@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.

comment Is the Scot referendum the biggest one of its type in modern history? And other questions
"And other questions" doesn't work well here, just ask one single clear and definite question.

@BenCrowell those are two interesting observations, and would deserve something more than a comment.

comment Where did Medieval Europe's gold come from?
@congusbongus isn't the first line a nice summary? "In the Greek and Roman Era there were a number of sources in Europe tapped for gold.."

comment Were early accounts of ancient child prostitution accurate?
If those writings have been destroyed, how can we know this is what happened? Did enough of them survive?

comment Has a foreign power ever sought to compel another country to abide by international law by means of that country's internal judiciary?
@PieterGeerkens nice move, but if you don't limit yourself to the title and consider the opening sentence, you get "two countries which have a treaty or convention between them. One country thinks the other has infringed upon it", which definitely does not apply to this answer.
