I'm a socialist (of the council-communist current promoted by the likes of Anton Luxemburg, Pannekoek and other Dutch German leftists, NOT state-socialism) with an avid interest in history and economics. I am currently studying computer science at the University of Central Florida and hope to graduate with my Bachelors degree by the end of the year.

comment What was the response of the general Iranian public to the modernization policies of Reza Shah?
@Anixx, I looked over my post and saw that I made a mistake in my wording. I made the edit to point out that it appeared there was obvious winners and losers (from an outside perspective). This may not have been apparent at the time of Reza Shah (and I'm guessing if this was the case it wasn't until the 60's and 70's did these concerns became apparent). Also, from what I can tell most of Reza Shah's attempts to eliminate class differences were similar to the Western techniques for doing so which only addressed trivial surface issues like dress.

comment What was done to improve the safety of jousts after the death of Henry II?
Actually it seems like it might have. Apparently the committee came to the conclusion, "mang it's really not smart to have people charge at each other with sharpened poles, we should probably not do it or something".

comment Did Johnny Appleseed actually exist?
Is there any reason to assume otherwise? The wikipedia article appears to have a good diversity of sources.

comment Why did the US drop nuclear bombs on a weakened Japan?
@Anixx, I apparently was using the word incorrectly. It simply means "to put into a position of readiness". So yes, technically deployment makes more sense in talking about how the US stationed nuclear weapons in Japan after the war. Often it is used to describe the use of weapons, and apparently that is an incorrect use of the word.
