comment Did the date of 9/11 have significance, or was it chosen randomly?
Related (on Skeptics): Was the date for the 9/11 attack chosen to be the same as the emergency number in the U.S. (911)?

comment Did the Trojan Horse actually exist?
A note about the earthquake theory: Poseidon was also the god of horses. If there was indeed an earthquake, a horse would be a very appropriate metaphor for it.

comment Why did Hitler not order the use of poison gas in combat?
@Nerrolken For what it's worth, I don't think my comment is a sufficient answer (otherwise, I would have posted it as such).

comment Why did Hitler not order the use of poison gas in combat?
According to Hermann Goering, the main reason was "the Wehrmacht was dependent upon horse-drawn transport to move supplies to their combat units, and had never been able to devise a gas mask horses could tolerate" - See: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chemical_warfare#Nazi_Germany

comment Has any generation generally agreed that the next generation was better?
I admit I probably would have voted to close the question if I've seen it before the answers, but I think the two answers it got are sufficient proof that it can be answered with "facts, references, or specific expertise". Voting to re-open.
