comment What was Finland's role in the siege of Leningrad?
Interesting to note that during the Lapland War, the Fins did almost as well against the Germans as they did the Russians in the Winter War, inflicting 2:1 losses and suffering minimal civilian casualties, despite the Nazi "scorched earth" strategy.

comment Did the Roman Empire extend as far north as the Romans could grow wine?
@Drux - Tanais was a hellenic emporium colony that was a client city-state of the Bosporan Kingdom, which was a client kingdom of the Romans (and an outright Roman province for a time under Nero.) It's located in the delta of the Don River, and has been a part of the Russian Empire since 1771.

comment Who is the earliest recorded person?
Yes, similar issues with the older Egyptian names, too - Ka and Iry-Hor aren't definitely names rater than titles. It'd be awesome if the first known name in history was the guy who brewed the beer.

comment Is there a correlation between the colonial power and the stability/success of the post colonial state?
@FelixGoldberg - King Leopold, not the Belgian state used mercenaries rather than the Belgian military, and the goal was resource extraction, not political control. What political control there was in place was top-down ordered from Belgium, in contrast of the British and French policy of indirect rule, using the locals to administer to the indigenous population of the colonized territory.
