comment Are modern Greeks related to the ancient Greeks?
Was posting answer about Bird, Steven (2007), "Haplogroup E3b1a2 as a Possible Indicator of Settlement in Roman Britain by Soldiers of Balkan Origin", Journal of Genetic Genealogy. Interesting points to be made about comparing historal events using modern population genetics in the Balkans. Looked into it some more, checked out the journal.. swing and a miss. Though I'd share.

comment Historical use of alcohol as a source of clean water
I can't remember, but i think this started life as a comment. I don't think it does answer the question in itself, but i added it because i thought it was nice.

comment Why did the welfare state succeed in Bismarck Germany but lagged in 20th-century Britain?
Yes, however. Do state owned enterprises work in general is not the question. Your answer should be relevant to and informed by the situation in 20th Britain and Germany. Right now your answer provides a weak historical context for your opinion. The view doesn't necessarily need to change, but the rigor does. Understand, while I'm not hiding the fact that I disagree with your political position, that is not the point I am making and we are not going to discuss that disagreement on history SE.

I don't share your historical narrative, but I do think this is a better question now. Somewhat. Downvote removed.

Citations needed. Seems to be born out a dislike for the British system, rather than any real knowledge of the German system and therefore the comparison.

"The economic result was terrible until Margaret Thatcher came into power" I'm not sure this is the makings of a decent question. Please rephrase. If you think "Post-war consensus" had drawbacks (and it did) be more specific.

comment What is the earliest known account of the modern military salute?
I'd like to add something on small arm salutes. The consensus (another source) seems to be the the sword salute is symbolic of kissing the cross and dates back to the crusades. Not an answer to a question about hand salutes, but sort of relevant nonetheless.

comment What is the earliest known account of the modern military salute?
My only criticism of this question is that to suitably expand on it would require one of the better answer I've ever seen on HistorySE.

comment When did people understand where children come from?
The oldest source for a description of basic facts human reproduction will probably tell you something about when the oldest surviving sources date from and pretty much nothing about when humans actually knew.
