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?
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.)

revised What do “roses” represent in the history of Protestant vs Catholic conflict?
Added fadas (accent marks). And managed to resist the temtation to put puntuation marks outside the quotation marks. I know that system is right in the USA, but it still looks wrong to me!

comment Is there a link between the Easter rabbits and the Yaknehaz rabbits?
Rabbits are associated with the Spring, anyway. And I don't know about Passover, but Easter certainly adopted some traditions from pre-Christian fertility festivals (see also: eggs), and rabbits are famously fertile. There's no real Christian imagery in either rabbits or eggs.
