Does Islam not forbid monarchies?
Why didn't the ROC (or more specifically the Kuomintang) attack Communist China during the Great Leap Forward/Great Chinese Famine?
Oh and there were 10,000 ROC soldiers that holed up in Burma and kept guerillaing PRC cunts up until their final defeat during a concentrated PRC offensive in 1960-61.
They were survivors of the Chinese Civil War unable to join Chian Kai-Shek's withdrawal to Taiwan.
Question regarding the Iliad and Odyssey. Did the "ancients", lets say the greeks after the time of Alexander the Great and the romans afterwards, did they read (I know they were originally recited) the same versions of those two works or were there still multiple "versions" of them? Do we know when did they start having "standard" versions? Also, do we have a concrete date of the first mention of either poems?
Do we know if the other Epic Cycle works were still known during late antiquity? When do we start losing...

Given that the Out of Africa theory is correct, and the first Native Americans arrived to America via the Bering Strait, how were Mesoamericans more developed than the North Americans? The Mesoamericans had floating gardens, and terrace farms and advanced astronomical techniques while their supposed predecessors were still living in trival bands. It doesn't make much sense. Theoretically, the North Americans who've been their for much longer would have more time to develop, not to mention the abundance of the Mesoamerican jungles would probably stagnate development of civilizations.
Well more time means more chances to develop. It seems that the Mesoamericans developed incredibly quickly upon migrating down there, what with the Zapotec and Olmec ancestors setting a precednt for civilization.
