comment Why, in the US, is Japanese brutality ignored compared with the Nazi brutality in WW2?
Was going to strongly disagree, but after typing a bit, I do see your difference: The Nazis were a lot more systematic about it. I'm still not sure this point is argued well here. The Japanese certianly didn't treat their POWs any better than the Germans did, and they had the same "collaboration" opportunities with at least the Chinese, Filipino, and UK "Indian" troops.

comment Pigs in ancient Israel
@Histophile - Wouldn't mind to, but it isn't really on topic for my answer, and wouldn't fit in a comment.

comment Did Germany lose World War II when/because “kill ratios” started moving “against” her?
* - The one big exception I can think of is the Battle of Stalingrad. However, you could argue that this was almost more of a siege than a battle of attrition.

comment What did Mesopotamian beehives look like?
I was going to complain about you linking to the picture rather than just putting it in your answer until I went and looked at it myself. Ummm...good choice.

comment Parable of the broken window and 1929 crisis
If you and Mr. Russell do ever "puzzle out your disagreement over beer", do take care that no windows get broken. :-)

comment What English company founded in the 1200s filed for bankruptcy in the 2000s?
A clue would be nice. What type of business was it in at the time of collapse? What caused it?

comment How prevalent was pork in Arabia before Arabs conversion to Islam?
Great answer, but I believe two of the three major branches of Judisim expect their adherents to keep to the old dietary laws (including no pork). Surely one or both of them are larger than the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church?
