comment What is the best historical example of conflict between two cultures with differing levels of technology?
Correct me if I'm wrong, but according to current researches Spaniards have played militarily rather secondary role in the fall of Aztec Empire. Mostly, their arrival has catalized the rebel processes inside the harshly ruled empire.

comment Why does the United States keep using “old” date representations and imperial system, while being in the minority?
I'm not sure but I think that screw diameters are generally standarized in inches in Poland, so are the wrenches...

@Amber becoming 568ml of beer instead of 500ml is a good reason for keeping imperial system. I think it's a good argument for using pints ;)

YYYY-MM-DD is not easier to computers, the benefit of that format is, when you use it in file names, sorting by name is sorting by date then.

comment Nazism and Jewish persecution awareness during the WW2 years
It doesn't matter if killing happened withing concentration camp or they were just a part of extermination kettle. My point is, the fact that people deperted there are to be killed was known to the defence movement, and to the wider population of occupied Poland. The OP suggests, Holocaust was unknown in Germany and beyond during the WW2, and that beyond is simply isn't true.
