comment Why did Britain and France not declare war against the Soviet Union when it invaded Poland in WW2?
@FelixGoldberg The spin was contemporary, but it was not about protecting Poland. It was about protecting the people of Western Belarusian and Western Ukrainian nationality (for propaganda purposes Poland was declared as non-existent and replaced by those semi-countries).

comment Did people have better nutrition before agriculture?
Please define "healthier". You mention in a single sentence they were healthier but had half of our life expectancy. Isn't it a self-contradiction?

comment Why didn’t Britain use its vast navy to get past trench warfare?
I've meant to say "but the British tried to do exactly this, and at the most convenient point, and they failed miserably: see Gallipoli campaign" but you've beat me to it.
