comment Did the Romans pour wine down wells for health purposes?
@MichaelF: Agreed. My point was that if the stated reason was bacteria, then it would be bs. However, cleansing as part of a religious ritual is probable. I still would fail to see how a bottle or two of wine would purify the waters in a well.

comment Why did Chamberlain act to appease Hitler leading up to the outbreak of World War 2?
The USSR played a double game with both Britain and the Nazi. It ended in the Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact as it was in the best interest of both Nazi Germany and the USSR.

That is a large question that could be better answer in a books -- which it has been. Hence it is not a good fit. Could you make it more localised in time/country/population?

comment Were there any war movies made during WW2 that were well regarded by front-line American soldiers?
@Lohoris: I see your point. That decision should rest with the Rose Ames to be honest. I am loathed to edit her(?) questions to change its meaning.
