comment Computer business in 1969
+1 and many thanks. Do you know whether the competitors offered longer leases than IBM, which replaced models on the lease renewals? Can you edit that info into your answer?

comment Computer business in 1969
@Yannis If that's the case, I'm glad to have it migrated there. (It's more a business question than a compsci one, though.)

@Oldcat specifically a southern black man who went to law school in the north (or out of state, anyway) pre-Little Rock.

@coleopterist, it doesn't allow questions on "Unimportant trivia that does not add to the understanding or appreciation of" the film.

If the downvoter, or anyone else, could suggest an improvement to the question, I'd appreciate it.

comment What was it like to have type 1 diabetes in the early 20th century?
Incidentally and FWIW (but this is not an answer), I seem to recall hearing that around that time doctors would test for sugar in urine as a means of diagnosing juvenile diabetes, and that the standard test for sugar in urine was to taste it.

+1, and many thanks for a well-written answer whose veracity I (can't vouch for but) have no reason to doubt. And thanks for the correction about the Constitutional basis!

comment Was residual animism partially responsible for Hitler's rise?
+1, and thanks. Your line "Using the imagery of the ancient Germanic people was just a prop, theatrics by the Nazi movement" implies that the Forsyth quote I started from has a basis (albeit in Nazi propaganda rather than in fact), something that I didn't know and that, by itself, sort of answers my question.
