Heh, I read the title as "Ice age before the industrial revolution" and was preparing myself for a very weird question...

comment How historically accurate was the movie “Charlie Wilson's War”?
Huh? Why would anyone who isn't familiar with the movie would even attempt at answering the question @congusbongus?

Feel free to post your own answer @Anix, I'd be very interested in reading it, especially if you take the time to back those claims.

comment Who founded Rome?
From the site's help center: "If you are not comfortable with the idea of your contributions being collaboratively edited by other trusted users, this may not be the site for you." You consistently resist people trying to improve your questions. Perhaps it's time to consider moving somewhere else for your history questions.

comment Who founded Rome?
There's some DNA evidence that suggests the Etruscans and other Latins may have migrated to Italy from Asia Minor, which may offer a (very broad) historical background to Rome's foundation myth. That said, it's still a myth, and that's very clearly pointed out in the Wikipedia article you linked. I'm not 100% sure what the question is here.

comment What did Kennedy know about Soviet missiles during the Cuban missile crisis?
Yes, I noticed the subscription, and I couldn't find any other reliable source (hence I posted a comment instead of an answer). This isn't as easy to answer as it may appear at first read.
