Adding to the speculation (because it’s fun, I’m no expert) Those New England states have old and unique traditions of self-government, and were influential in the Revolution. these traditions linger, but it was people in the middle colonies like New York and Virginia who
I have mixed feelings about an example like that… not quite what I was getting at. I was more imagining regional rail on steroids, i.e. a major city anchoring the network. Also, an area of growth – upstate NY is a stagnant economy. Is
A message for the subscribers of the this subreddit: > Mercator’s Greenland is about the same size as his Africa, while in fact Africa is 14 times bigger. Poulsen wanted to avoid those distortions, and he did this by leaving out the South Pole
It gets really complicated when talking about China because many people might worship multiple Buddhas, figures from Chinese folklore, Taoism, Confucius himself, their ancestors, deified military generals, emperors, scholars, or even [lowly maids](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mazu_%28goddess%29) from China’s history, and respecting the power of heaven and spirits
Alright, here’s a more thorough statement: I doubt anyone’s ever salted the earth to the point of ruining the agricultural utility of an entire region’s arable land. And while there’s good evidence that salting the earth was a ritual in the Jewish/Near East traditions
I’m just gonna copy and paste something I’ve said before about my family heritage because a lot of people find the Campbell vs MacDonald story of Glencoe interesting. My family clan, the Campbells, were once one of the main families of Scotland. We had
The Founding Fathers left the choice of method of awarding electoral votes exclusively to the states in section 1 of Article II of the U.S. Constitution– “Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors .
Hey there. I live in Nevada and grew up about 10 minutes from a very famous brothel known as “The Cat House”. Dennis Hof is the owner of quite a few here in the northern portion, and a good friend of one of my
One more small correction: My parents live in northern MN and it feels more like the Great Lakes region than the Great Plains. Bemidji, Brainerd, etc feels, to me, more like the Great Lakes, which all of the lakes that people love to go
I just googled a bit and found this excellent site: http://www.elasmo-research.org/education/evolution/evol_s_predator.htm Long story short, it looks like by far the greatest diversity of sharks was about 400 million years ago. At the mass extinction 250 million years ago, all but one family from that
They were kicked out of the military but not executed. >On arrival at the Tejo in Portugal, returning Portuguese servicemen were taken into custody by military police at gunpoint without immediate access to their families who had arrived to receive them. Following intense questioning and interrogations, the officers

I’m sure it takes more than 113 hours, but that’s kind of the point. Why would you go to these places if you’re just going to drive through? EDIT: How could I forget dear ole Dixie? Fixed.
The Greeks in Anatolia weren’t annihilated or anything. They were part of the large population [exchange between Greece and Turkey in 1923](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Population_exchange_between_Greece_and_Turkey). Actually, in reality, many of them fled before the official exchange–probably a total of 1.5 million Christians to Greece, half a million
I actually did something like that a while ago. I made one world map for each superpower since around 1500 – Spain, France, Britain, Russia, and America. For each one I colored in the map for different things. Purple for places that used to
The Russian Empire and the US were pretty friendly through out history. Both were seen as barbaric and uncouth to “civilized” Europe — really there is nothing like hating dear old dad and wanted to smash his face in to bring two countries together.
Assuming 5 million cubic miles of ice, 917 kg/m^(3) for the density, and 334 kJ/kg for the heat of melting, it would require 6.4×10^(24) J of energy to melt all that ice. (Used fresh water quantities.) * Google search calculation: 5e6 mi\^3 * 917
There seems to be a major issue matching up the sea and air routes. For instance I can see the routes of the Mediterranean but they are too far south in the middle of the desert. The English channel traffic is MIA north of
Actually, I think the bigger factor is that it used to be that films were designed to respond best to lighter skin tones, and photographers taught to meter for the same. For motion pictures, reels even began with an image of a white model
>I do not consider population outside the wards as city proper. So that’s the topic “what could you define as city proper”. This is tricky for Tokyo because there is no such thing as “Tokyo City”. At least, not since it was abolished in

Well, ‘most popular’ statistics for this kind of data mean very little. It could be mere fractions of a percent of kids that are being named Mason, but so long as that’s more than any other single name then it is the ‘most popular’.
A direct line from place to place actually takes longer due to the spherical nature of the Earth. A curved route is quickest, and it’s the route that aircraft take when travelling around the planet. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_circle If you were to fly “direct” as seen
[The man in this from the library of congress](http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2KG58PI2K70) has a lot to say about the subject. Can’t find the specific part about California there, but if you can’t find it there’s a TV series of the same name. He mentions how the federal
Pardon me but it was Poland AND Lithuania in various power sharing arrangements. Edit: Actually I disagree with this point only because the Rus in what is now Ukraine might have maintained but the northern principalities proximate to Polish Lithuanian Alliance were small and
