comment What were the reasons for the Renaissance / scientific revolution in Europe?
are you joking? A rebellion with forks has much more chances against army with swords than a rebellion with muskets against an army with muskets.

comment Why does Europe have so few skyscrapers compared to East Asia?
You are perverting my words. I meant that Tokyo and Taipei have a lot of skyscrapers (not few) and there is no space constriction. So your theory about limited space does not work.

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.

comment Did the Romans ever encounter the Vikings?
@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.

comment Did the Romans ever encounter the Vikings?
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.
