comment Why did the assasination of Franz Ferdinand trigger WW1?
@TylerDurden I disagree, the outbreak and participants of WW1 wasn't a very trivial question since in the 19th and the early 20th century politics were rather complex.

comment What is the current U.S. monetary standard?
@Semaphore you are right, it is not neccessarily related to the answer. I just wanted to point out that central banks are typically independent or semi-independent from the government. Which is a mistake in your answer otherwise it is basicly the core of an answer for the question.

comment What is the current U.S. monetary standard?
@Semaphore I would recommend the first source for reading primarly since the others are somewhat opinion based, but all of them help to see clearly in the question. I thought on linking them to the answer but since this monetary related part is pretty much factual, I decided to mention them, it might be easier to understand than a dry book.

Sadly not from government, government is a user of currency, the value, interest rates, debt and quantity are highly regulated by central banks which banks are not directly under governments.

comment Why did Hitler not order the use of poison gas in combat?
I upvoted the question, but it might need a little modification, the title might be misleading. Hitler used poison gas on jewish people. The question is good if you emphasise the fact that the gas warfare was neglected by both sides compared to the Great War (WW1).

comment How were fortification doors protected against fire?
Completly agree, a massive door needs massive fire. You can burn a toothpick easily, the fire you use relatively will be huge, and maintain the required heat for all the surface. A burning arrow is effective against smaller burnable materials such as roofs which made out of Straw, what can catch the fire and make it bigger.

comment Why did the Lewinsky scandal have such big impact?
@CommuSoft If you add up previous examples with J. F. Kennedy and few others who were mentioned here to your question, I think it surely will fulfill the "history related question" category.
