A qualified chemist who somehow drifted into web development. I've learned (to a greater or lesser degree of accuracy) PHP and JavaScript, and would like to learn something completely different for the sake of it. I'm a weirdo who actually enjoys reading (and sometimes writing) technical documentation.

comment Why does the United States keep using “old” date representations and imperial system, while being in the minority?
@terdon. English too pronounces dates as dd-mm-yyyy, at least in my dialect (and most dialects, I think). Today is the twenty-third of October, twenty fourteen.

revised How did militia barracks look in the 19th century?
English is weird. "How did they look?" is fine, as is "What did they look like?", but not "How did they look like?" Also, you can seek something or look for it, but seeking for something is a bit off.

@BlackBookOfThe60s. Belief in Hell is by no means a minority position in Christianity.

I'm not aware of any country in the EU which has ever used mm-dd-yyyy.

revised Why was language not used to establish dominance throughout England 1066 AD–1360s CE?
Tidied grammar (their/there confusion and other sundry matters). Turned a statement ending in a question mark into an actual question.

comment Why are scientific and medical training so different?
When you say a brief period in the 1700s-1950s, are you saying that the 1700s to the 1950s was itself a brief period, or are you referring to a brief period which occurred within that timespan? (Grammatically, the meaning is the latter; the former makes more semantic sense, but I'm not sure on what timescale 250 years counts as "brief". Depends how broad a sweep of history you're considering, I suppose.)
