comment What did Germany do after World War II to recover so successfully that it became more prosperous than its WW2 victors?
No worries. I just thought it would be helpful to point to the WW1 question, as people interested in how Germany recovered after WW2 will probably also be interested in how they did it after WW1.

Didn't say they were the same.

comment Prominent examples of scientific racism in ancient Greece
The quote certainly doesn't seem like a great example of scientific racism, which is what prompted me to look for other examples in the first place. I avoided adding my own criticisms in the question because a) those belong on an answer that I don't have time to write right now (and probably won't, as yours covers me) and b) I wanted the question to be as neutral as possible, to avoid yet another never ending comment discussion. However, the core question remains: Are there any examples of scientific racism in the ancient Greek world?

comment Who is the banished Scottish King? (before 1560)
There's an apocryphal story about Robert the Bruce hiding in a cave on the Isle of Arran that involves goats, but it doesn't quite fit. The story is that when a search party found the entrance of the cave, they saw wild goats in front of it and (incorrectly) assumed the goats wouldn't be there if someone was hiding inside.

comment Where did Batista announce his resignation?
I think it was the Havana Hilton, which later became Castro's headquarters, but I can't seem to be able to find any sources. There wasn't any big announcement, Batista told a couple of people and then sneaked out.
