comment What made Alexander great?
He wouldn't have. When Perseus of Macedon fought the Roman army, the Macedonians found it hard to keep the line strait and their ranks unbroken, so once there was a gap, the Romans would rush in and massacre the people left and right.

comment What is the secret behind the economic success of ROC(Taiwan)?
@T.E.D. Guess who America supported...Taiwan. I'd guess, though I've not no real evidence to back it up, that is why Taiwan grew faster in the short run.

comment When was the African National Congress added to the US terror list?
Is the list public? I cant find it. I've been on aclunc.org/cases/landmark_cases/asset_upload_file371_3549.pdf but much of it has been blacked out.

comment At what point did mapmaking begin to accurately reflect what we now know about the earth?
It also depends on where. European maps on Europe were very good by the 1700s euratlas.net/antique/cartography/index.html, but maps of Asia were not as good geographicus.com/P/AntiqueMap/Asia-martineau-1700 It also depended on the cartographer. An other map of Asia from the same period by a famed cartographer Guillaume de L'Isle is far better than the one above. worldmapsonline.com/historicalmaps/kr-1700-asia.htm To answer your question, it depends, but I'd tend to agree with your statement on satellites.

comment Why does Europe have so few skyscrapers compared to East Asia?
@Anixx, no, what I mean is Europe has no city that has grown at the rate of Singapore or Hong Kong, nor has it found it necessary to build them. Take for example, Hong Kong, it has a huge problem with housing. It's gotten so big that all the Chief Executive (president of Hong Kong) candidates have addressed it. In a city with little space, the government has solved the problem before using huge sky scraper residential blocks, and, in the future are solving it the same war. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Kin_Ming_Estate.jpg en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:King_Lam_Estate.JPG

comment Why does Europe have so few skyscrapers compared to East Asia?
@Anixx, SEA and Europe both have cities with a lack of space, but, the cities in Europe tent to have developed for a longer time a long time ago, using up all the space available with non sky scraper buildings. SEA on the other hand, has new cities who've experienced huge population growth in a short period of time, forcing these cities to build sky scrapers. It is not the lack of current space that forces the building of sky scrapers, but the near future lack of space. Thanks for the critique, I've edited my answer.

comment Is there any documentation that indicates the Aztecs were as violent as they are made out?
Cultures are all different. In the days of sailing ships, when you went past the equator for the first time, you'd be dunked into the ocean and towed for a while. If we did that today, it would be illegal.

comment What was the typical peasant's diet like in Europe during the High Middle Ages?
The link is definitely false; "Meat such as beef, pork or lamb" This was put in the lower class. The only time you'd have meat was if you shot a deer and eat it. The penalty for doing so was death...
