comment Why has bidet use not spread to the northern countries of Europe?
So, it's putting the emphasis somewhere else. The first one had the emphasis on washing your anus and the form I suggested had more of an emphasis history. To use a coding analogy (not that I'm qualified :) ), it doen't matter where you put the pointer astrix, but it definitely helps readability.

comment Is there a link between national debt/trade deficit and starting a war?
War has definitely been used to take peoples minds off of governmental problems, including debt. Take a look at Henry V's part of the 100 Year war and the Falklands war.

comment Why has bidet use not spread to the northern countries of Europe?
As kubanczyk said, the question isn't really on topic. What does washing your anus have to do with History? However, you probably could change the question to something like, "What historical reason did the bidet..." That might work.

"When did sail ships take off" As I read that, I saw in my head, two ships flying through the air.

Wow if that is true (and the bib pages points far in that direction) it would change almost everything I know about that period! +1

Lol, I read this as "What was the reason for the Ottoman invasion of Toronto?" Interesting question though.

I edited the first sentence which wasn't very clear along with some gramatical errors. I just hope my edit was what the question was asking.
