comment Why only in the last few hundred year has science and technology progressed like it has
Imagine a future historian (or shall I say geek :) asking an analogous question on SE.H (still beta? :) say in a millennium from now when a lot of further technological progress may have occurred: would it be any different? If not, the fact that there is growth and progress may be your (and her) sufficient answer.

comment Why is called Spanish-American War instead of Spanish-Cuban-American War?
Why not put this information (plus your sources) into the question? I guess naming wars is not a science, but an art :) Are you saying that it is referred to as Spanish-Cuban-American War in Cuba? Now that would not seem to be be all that surprising. On the other hand: "History is written by the victors." (Churchill)

comment Why does the United States keep using “old” date representations and imperial system, while being in the minority?
It's fairly common to refer to laptop screen sizes in "old" US units also elsewhere, presumably for reasons of convenience similar to the ones you cite.

comment Cuban medical internationalism
@EmilioGort just a reference to the fact that Ernesto "Che" Guevara was a trained physician (nothing serious -- notice the smiley)
