comment Medieval Saharan Caravan Navigation
@mart A very nice custom, it is a pleasure to read about such. It is like the custom to leave food, water and wood in the forest cabins in Sweden and in Siberia. Usually people are much more kind to each other in the harsh surrounding - if not, they simply die out.

comment How do Tamahagane, Damascus, and Toledo Steel compare?
@Greg I collected this info while buying some work knives the last year. I am afraid that now I would need to find these sources the same way as you. And -alas- most of them anyway were in Czech language. But I have seen a nice article on the subject in English a week ago - cracked.com/…

comment How did modern border security and crossing bureaucracy develop?
@Bregalad Then don't forget to define the contemporary format, please. And this won't help with the multiquestion problem. In such situations I prefer rather than propose the closing, to answer one of the subquestions thinking that somebody else will answer the others.

@Bregalad Then the question should be simply closed, as several questions in one (crossing, visa, pass...) and as undefined - for nobody can say what OP means by modern

comment When did husbands & wives start sharing bedrooms?
@jwenting I see. Now the question is absolutely different. And has sense. But my answer is correct for the old content. So, I can only add info to the current.

comment When did husbands & wives start sharing bedrooms?
@jwenting He is asking when they left the separate bedrooms and started to sleep in shared. But for that they had to sleep in separate ones sometimes. Somebody had seen too much pink films on "high society".

The whole question is taking on the presumption that some country the author is from is a whole world. I need not to support by references the fact of existence of the outer world. If you need them, it is the problem of your strange community. Look any document film about how usual people live in Africa, in China, in India, in Japan. Or better try to live at least a pair of years there. But the time spent in an european hotel can not be taken into account!

comment Has a foreign power ever sought to compel another country to abide by international law by means of that country's internal judiciary?
@ihtkwot I have read your arguments. They are very weak. Too many errors. I'll mention two of them. You have forgotten that states could make an agreement that the discussions connected to some questions could be solved in some foretold court of one of these states or of some third state. And it is used. Your second great fallacy is that you don't understand that the law system of USA is not the sole one in the world.
