comment How many Nephites fought during the wars described in Mosiah chapter 9?
"Mosiah" isn't a biblical text. Its from the Book of Mormon. As such it didn't exist before 1827. Certainly way off topic here. I don't know for sure, but I suspect that's outside of Herm.SE's purview as well.

comment Why does the rooster symbolise France?
@WS2 - Most schools don't do Bible readings. Separation of Church and State and all that.

@WS2 - We do. We just mean very different things than you when we do so. :-)

@WS2 - If that interests you, I'd encourage checking out this question on the English stack. I assure you that you aren't nearly as amused by our use of that bit of language difference as we are by yours.

comment How involved are Jews involved in Multiculturalism and why?
For those fortunate enough not to know, "White Genocide" is the current bête noire of White Supremacists. However, it (like most of their arguments) is utterly bogus, so basing a question off of it puts you into "when did you stop beating your wife" territory. If someone seriously brings it up to you, the best response is probably just to laugh in their face.

comment Did a German Jew in the US Army save his home district from bombing?
...its a nice story though. A great candidate for the Liberty Valance effect.

comment Has a government ever been elected with the full 100% of the votes?
Well...this regularly happens when someone runs unopposed. Another way of looking at this is that if the vote is north of 90% or so, the voters apparently didn't believe they were presented with much of a choice.

comment Which civilization is the first to know about the existence of the Arctic circle?
What "discovery of the equator" are you referring to? Our species pretty much evolved there.

comment Can the Queen of England fire the prime minister of Australia?
Actually, as edited this could be a pretty good answer, if it had a good link for some of the claims at the end of #3.

Here's a link to an actual Alabama literacy test. See how well you'd do. I failed on the 4th question. 30.6K rep here, but apparently if my skin were a few shades darker I'd not be "literate" enough to vote in 1950 Alabama.

comment Did anything come from Sparta, besides fitness and war?
I always viewed them as sort of the "jocks" of the Peloponnese. Athens was sort of the "nerds", interested in science and the arts. That means Athens got the last word, since they did most of the writing, so naturally the jocks didn't come out looking so great. :-)

comment Korean DMZ Soldiers
"...keep any visitors safe." That seems legitimate. North Korea has been known to kidnap South Koreans.
