comment Have there been gay riots in the US?
Just as we don't use salutations here, your name bullet at the end will do for a signature. Also, this probably isn't the place for a lesson in how to use Google to research things, so you may consider editing that part out of your answer yourself. Other than that, a very good effort for a first post. +1 from me.

comment What was Gandhi's post-factum view of the Partition?
RE last paragraph: That would be great. Your answer matches my understanding as well, but I have no better source for this idea than a veiwing of the Ben Kingsley Gandhi movie 30 years ago. I was hoping to see something more authoratative here.

Generally a good answer (so +1), but I highly doubt those pictures you saw were taken conteporaniously. :-)

comment Has a state ever “attacked” another one by printing fake money?
I'd suggest using the editing tools to link some of the text in your answer to the wikipedia page you mentioned, as well as web references to those two books (I like Amazon pages as they tend to have reviews). Do that and this gets a +1 from me.

comment Why was the massive Human Wave attack used in WWI?
Welcome to SE. I'm refocusing your question to be specific to WWI, as I think that makes it a much better question. If that really isn't what you want, feel free to open it back up some (although that may risk more close votes).

comment What were the original casualty projections for Hiroshima and Nagasaki?
They had a bit of an idea, at least where individuals are concerned, if not large populations. Most likely the issue was getting non-scientific leadership to grok the issue with what seemed to them to be just a really big explosive device. In Richard Feynman's first autobiography one of the anecdotes he mentioned was his attempts to get the military brass overseeing the project to take radiation protection for the workers seriously.

This was actually a plot element in Neal Stephenson's Baroque Cycle with the King of France plotting against England's currency. However, I think the only germ of known truth in there is that Newton spent some time hunting down counterfieters.

I've linked in the wikipedia page for it. Is there something you want to know about that isn't on that page?

comment Why has bidet use not spread to the northern countries of Europe?
Based on the intimate knowledge of the area I gained from watching Crocadile Dundee movies, I'd say it isn't very common in Australia either. :-)
