comment Why do so many national flags contain the color red?
@user1914292 If you count dark and light blue together, then blue is second, but still, only 20%.

There's some color analysis here too: blog.wolfram.com/2009/02/12/flag-analysis-with-mathematica (the color-by-area conclusion is the same but there's some more detail)

comment Did Ben Franklin actually make any tofu?
Agreed, we're interested in some food history questions, like "how did this food become the food it is today?" (see meta.cooking.stackexchange.com/q/1701/1672). But while this is about history and food, it doesn't really have much to do with the food (unless the claim is that Franklin had some significant effect on tofu in the US), so it's really more of a history question.

comment Why Canada failed to emerge as a Great Power like UK or France?
@Sid Sure, there are a lot of things besides population, just saying Netherlands is an odd example to prove that point - a tiny old power vs a more recently-settled enormous country.

@Sid That's not a terribly convincing example. The Netherlands are very much a special case, since it's a small country (in terms of area), so the population has grown much more slowly than elsewhere, and their historical importance dates back to before Europeans had even settled in Canada, when their population wasn't so disproportionately small.
