comment Did Heinrich Schliemann discover Troy?
IF you want an answer, then your audience are the judges of whether you've expressed the question sufficiently precisely. Your answer to @Semaphore communicates clearly to me that you're not looking for an answer to the question. Like Semaphore, I don't know what you want to learn with this question. I'm pretty sure that the response, "I did" isn't going to get you anything useful at all.

comment Did the cost ineffectiveness the V2 and V1 rocket program actually matter to the Nazis?
During a war, the cost effectiveness of a weapon that could both end the war and ensure the survival of the nation for a generation is difficult to judge. What price do you put on victory or defeat? Then recalculate that price taking into account Nazi nationalism, remembering Germany's loss during WWI, and the putative causes of that loss. Your question is a little like asking the color of the bear you're wrestling; while it may be factual, there are more pressing issues.

comment Would the USA staying out of WWI have prevented WWII?
What are the grounds for the re-open nomination? Has anything changed from when it was closed? Is this just a disagreement over scope? Can I vote "Abstain"?

Please consult How to Ask; H:SE isn't really designed for opinions; we;re looking more for historical scholarship. Welcome to the site.

comment Why were North Native Americans less advanced than Central or South?
Ricky is correct about other animals - Jared Diamond examined this in some depth; there is research to support Ricky's point, if only he would cite it.

This is another example of a string of reasoning unsupported by evidence. You've explained elsewhere that you don't feel evidence is worth the effort; I respect that position, but without evidence, this is just a beer and pretzel's assertion.

comment Would the USA staying out of WWI have prevented WWII?
I think the key supposition is that "it would have been recognized as the stalemate it was fairly soon...." that doesn't match history as I understand it.

comment Would the USA staying out of WWI have prevented WWII?
We normally close questions that depend on hypotheticals & counterfactuals; such is not the province of history. This question seems to be on the boundary between speculation and discussion, so I'll ask for other opinions.

comment Why was the Aztec Empire known as an Empire?
Because when I call them the Aztec baseball team, people get confused. The name is simply a label so that we all know that we're talking about the same thing. There is no formalism, no regulation, no governance to the English language. This question should probably be in English, not in History. History doesn't contain those kind of rules either.

comment How did WWII change the GDPs of the great empires of the world?
I don't think they peak in those years, those are just the years of measurement. If I'm right, that would distort the analysis. And I believe, to answer @taninamdar question, that the reason you're using "Empire" rather than "country" is only because the wikipedia page does so?
