comment Harvard Architecture: How did Harvard Mark I separate data and instruction?
"Can only be well-answered by an engineer"?!? This is a proper historical question, which can be answered by a historian with the normal use of primary or secondary historical sources. Most other questions around here cannot be answered precisely, but this one has a chance - this is the only difference I see.

comment Are these images from Iran-Iraq war authentic?
First photo much better version: ejection-history.org.uk/country-by-country/IRAN/… to be more precise it's F-5E. You can try to track it down by its number (2-7-59 ٢-۷-۵۹). And the second photo: Mirage F1 EQ or some subvariant (EQ-2?). Paintwork seems legit for both photos.

comment What caused Yugoslavia to switch sides early in World War II?
I would emphasize input from non-English written sources provided by such users. Judging from the Polish or Russian example, the number of areas where the English books/articles lag behind the current research is unexpectedly high; here-and-there they could be considered plainly incorrect.
