comment How did the United States penal system evolve?
I think this could be an interesting question if you framed it more to focus on the historical issues at play, and if you chose either: 1) why the US has capital punishment, or 2) why the US has such a high prison population. The question in it's current form is not really workable.

comment During the Great Depression, roughly what proportion of Americans lived below the World Bank PPP $1.25/day poverty line?
@RazieMah I undeleted the comments. Upon a second reading the comments were more productive then I realized; however, the comments section is not really the best avenue for this type of prolonged discussion. This is is in part why we have the chat room.

comment Warship Identification Needed
Those are Ford Model Ts on the road next to the ship. I'm not sure what year they are, but they don't look like original ones, so you are probably looking at some time from the 20s - 30s I think.
