comment What was the hippie movement? Why did it decline?
@Oldcat: It happened in the 1880s with Labor unrest spawned by the "Missionary" generation en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Missionary_Generation born during the 1860s, who grew their hair longer than previous generations, and produced "muckrakers." What IS true is that the Boomers were extreme, even by the standards of other "idealist" generations (e.g. the Great Awakeners)

comment John the Fearless: John I or John II? Can the French and the English agree?
@Semaphore: In law, the expression is "Res ipsa loquitur." That's Latin for "the matter speaks for itself." We also found out a few years later how deeply the English king renounced the throne of France.

comment What was the purpose of a division staff in a US Navy Task Force/Fleet in WWII
@choeger: One objective in creating units was to have groups of ships with similar speeds, capabilities, etc. That's why they tended to be uniform in kind, rather than "mixed." Some ships with "odd" characteristics were used for special tasks and formed "units" on their own.

comment How did the conquering Mongols and Manchus of China end up becoming part of China?
@BrunoHeblingVieira: The (original) Jurchen were hunter-gatherers. Not exactly "pastoralists," but not sedentary, either.
