comment Did the Romans ever encounter the Vikings?
Oh my god. 410? What happened in 410? "the HRE" in any form appeared AFTER 800. It is the consequence of the iconoclasm controvercy and Lombard offensive I mentioned above.

@o.m. so what? Rome seceded from Roman empire between 731 and 800. In 731 it was just a conflict with emperor over theological matters and formal breakup happened around 800. I think a turning point was 751 when the last Roman exarch was killed by Lombards in Ravenna.

Rome seceded from the Empire around 731 AD over iconoclasm controversy and conficsation of the pope's estates in Sicily by the emperor. At that time the empire was undivided. So what's the point of calling this question illogical? There is no much distance between 731 and 795.

comment Was there any terrorism in the Soviet Union?
@jwenting is there an indication that Kirov was killed by regime's secret services rather than private people? Stalin was not in control of the secret services at the time.

@jwenting even if Kirov was killed by Stalin as a political competitor, Stalin was not acting in the regime's capacity because Kirov also was part of the regime.

@Ne Mo funny enough it was announced that the shooter was firing at the cosmonauts. He was incarcerated into a mental hospital and released in 1990. After release he was given a flat and the military wage for 20 years because it turned out that he was not formally fired from the military.
