comment Why did Greeks and Romans dilute their wine?
@ssdecontrol I think it was a common practice, but I agree the resulting drink may not be entirely sanitary. Alcohol is anti-bacterial and an environment with enough alcohol will kill off germs.

comment What was the social status of a man who failed the civil service exams in Imperial China ( 1200 - 1800 AD )?
I love how the editing process has changed my question so many times that I don't even recognize it. But my original question was " who were the elites in Imperial China"? That is not the equivalent of "man who failed CSE"...

But would they be accorded some status of being a learned person? Or might the stigma sink a person even lower?
