Well at least some people are better off in the military.

comment Were Puritans Prudes or Progressive?
@TomAu: You only say that because of the hype surrounding the "Spanish Armada," which arises from it being the only invasion attempt of Britain in hundreds of years. Napoleon "conquered" Germany... and Germans still speak German.

I question the assertion that the parents of the Puritans had won a successful war against the Spanish, because the year after the Spanish Armada was defeated the English suffered a similarly crushing naval defeat of the "Counter Armada."

@FelixGoldberg I am not entirely sure what I mean by progressive there. The purpose of this question is to address which historical narrative is accurate. Only then may the meaning of progressive be explored.

comment Where are Genghis Khan's Mongols?
@Dagvadorj you should post an answer to this question. You seem to know a lot more than I do. I have resorted to googling stuff. I thought that the purpose of this site was to answer questions google can't, but apparently I'm wrong. All people want is a free secretary to prepare a nice google-searched presentation for 'em. If I hadn't found such a pretty map I wouldn't even have bothered editing my answer. It delighted me.
