comment How did diplomats of the Axis powers travel and communicate among themselves in World War II
Definitely, no, -1. Diplomats of the enemy states are usually not allowed to pass the territory of their enemy's state. Only evacuation of the diplomats is possible (Soviet diplomats were evacuated from Germany and German ones from the USSR). This does not conflict with the diplomatic rules. Allowing german diplomats to pass the USSR to meet the Japanese is nonsense!

comment When was it discovered that the stars are not all lying on the same plane?
@fdb that they were too late may indirectly indicate the author thinks they came from far away. Anyway I get the point, yet the example of Sirius clearly indicates the author postulated Sirius to be inhabited in his setting.

@TheHonRose at least there were laws to free slaves at old age and unable to work.

comment Did the proto-Indo-Europeans displace or overlay the pre-existing European tribes?
Definitely wrong. Tripolian culture had much more advanced agriculture and greater population (two largest cities in the world!) than Proto-Indo-Europeans.

comment Is it true that Proto-Ukrainians conquered Europe and India?
I think Kurgan hypothesis mostly deals with 4000-3000 BC, so 6000-5000 ago, not 8000.

comment When was the last time a reigning monarch personally participated in battle?
I think Charles XII was a participant unwillingly, possibly, his staff place was attacked after the army defeated. It is like a monarch killed after his capitol captured or bombed.

@David Richerby what one has to do to be participationg? Shoot himself? Did Napoleon shoot himself or was he merely observing?

@David Richerby was the weapon of Napoleon ceremonial or not? How do u tell that Nicolas II's weapon is ceremonial unlike that of Napoleon?

@David Richerby it is not clear whether his weapons are ceremonial on not, what is a definition of ceremonial? I am quite sure his saber is battle-worthy. I do not know what the topic starter meant under "partisipant" but I do not see why Albert I counts while Nicholas II does not.
