Why is this past tense? Bedouins are still around.

Whoa, that takes me back. My wife and my first apartment together was a shotgun in New Orleans. I think that's more a native New Orleans arch. style though.

comment How many illegal aliens were deported under “Operation Wetback”?
I've removed some of the imprecise emotional terms from this question, in favor of more precise terms. It is a lot harder to get good objective answers when you don't ask your question in an objective way.

comment How did commoners in late medieval to early modern Europe learn to read?
Note that the reformation for the most part came after the printing press. I would argue the printing press made the reformation. If Luther's 95 thesis had not been mass-printed, the church would have happily ignored him.

@DarekWędrychowski - It means someone was writing their sociology thesis, and "using social media" didn't sound jargony enough.

comment Did the fights in the Ip Man movie series actually occur in real life?
Note that the main bad guy (often a Japanese commander/governor of some kind) being a really great hand-to-hand fighter and taking on the hero in the denouement is a standard Kung-Fu theater trope. I'd be shocked if I was watching such a movie and found it that such a thing had happened.
