comment When did Germany begin to store it's gold deposits abroad?
People, this close comment is crazy. Here is the same question on Politics.SE. I am reluctant to delete this one, as the one answer is awesome.

@Lennart Regebro, you are correct. Now I notice there is a politics SE. I'll request a move to that site.

comment Army formation: veterans at the first line
I am accepting this answer because of your final comment. This is exactly what I am looking for - concrete examples of veterans in the first line.

comment Army formation: veterans at the first line
Yea, and if you put the youths at the back, they will never become veterans. And inexperienced warriors are cheaper. So - many reasons to put veterans at the back. That's why I am asking if the opposite happens from time to time.

Actually I am looking for a battle in which the veterans were the front line and the first to engage!

Could you give an example of such a battle? I would like to look it up in wikipedia and judge the results and effectiveness.

In this light, I guess this is better moved to skeptiks.se. What do you think?

comment Continent-wide common languages in human history
@ Monster Truck, I mean spoken in an area, as large at least as Europe ... but on the other hand, I wouldn't be satisfied with something, spoken in a small part of vast Asia. Hmm, good question, yours [thinking]. Also, It doesn't need to be spoken as a first language - just to be known to the extent that now nearly everyone speaks English. Maybe I should merge these clarifications in my question?
