comment Spain's tributary empire vs. Portugal's seaborne empire
i am not your downvoter but ... i'm wondering whether you're asking the wrong question. since portugal also built a huge (Brazil is huge) colonial empire in the americas shouldn't your question be about the differences between the americas and asia rather than between spain and portugal?

comment How did the Nazis view Dickens' Oliver Twist?
you've read the book, so that's fair enough. as i understand it the book paints him very much blacker than his portrayal in the famous musical and films (which might be the Fagin many readers here are more familiar with, me included). So it's hard to imagine the Nazis unhappy with Dickens' Fagin.

comment Why does the United States keep using “old” date representations and imperial system, while being in the minority?
re your para about the UK, no one in the UK uses MM/DD/YYYY and everyone, even those who still fight against metric and cherish imperial regard MM/DD/YYYY as completely nuts. just saying.
