comment How did it happen that countries and cities got different names in different languages?
@Drux, what do you mean by "Wittgenstein I vs II"? I've been searching and searching and I can't figure out the reference.

comment Does the Kimmirut find indicate pre-Viking Europeans traveling to Baffin Island?
"predates the Vikings by several hundred years" was the phrase in the article that seemed strange. Sounds like a claim of pre-Viking contact to me.

The first link is about Kennewick Man, a find from 8000 years and 4000 miles away. The second is about Welsh-speaking Mandans, a theory that I see no evidence for.

comment Why did East India Company accept Government of India Act 1858?
This is a great question. A good answer to it would help illuminate the difference between a country and a company that sometimes acts like one.

comment A world in the moon?
@TylerDurden, I'm trying to find out about what people believed before they learned what we know now. I think historical beliefs are on topic here, but we'll see what the community thinks.

Interesting, but this isn't really an answer to the question.

@FelixGoldberg, so what do you call the entire government? (reichstag, ministers, emperor, etc.)

comment How democratic was Imperial Germany?
@BrankoSego, how was the Reichstag not part of the government? It seems to me that a parliament is about as solidly part of the government as you can get.
