comment During the Great Depression, roughly what proportion of Americans lived below the World Bank PPP $1.25/day poverty line?
Edited to clarify the inflation adjustment of the dollar amount. Someone tell me (or fix it) if I got it wrong.

comment Is 529 the largest simultanious death penalty verdict ever?
Was there any actual mass legal trial with a verdict though? The link there kind of implies they were all just summarily strung up.

comment What would slaves in the Roman Empire call their masters?
@jwenting Latin is fairly well universally placed within Indo-European, whereas there's a huge debate about Etruscan, but it is pretty much agreed that it is not Indo-European. Latin certianly borrowed some words from it, but it almost certainly was never just a dialect of Etruscan.
