There is a sense in which Menshevism *led* to the Soviet Union, since the Soviet Union was established the year after the Mensheviks were outlawed.

Rapier is not light. Many examples are the same weight as lighter longswords, and feel very heavy because they are used one-handed. Smaller thrusting swords like smallsword are an entirely different breed.

Great quiz, though a little bit more flexibility on the spelling of Gutenberg would be nice.

Yeah, Wikipedia seems to say Aisha was second favorite: "In many Muslim traditions, Aisha is described as Muhammad's most beloved or favored wife after his first wife, Khadija bint Khuwaylid, who died before the migration to Medina took place."

That should be Muhammad the Paedophile's favourite child wife.

You know I've looked into that, coz it was kind of alarming how young age is portrayed to be. And just to note, I'm not looking to justify anything, just for clarification. It kind of seems that Aeysha is portrayed to be younger than she actually was. One of the big indicators was that she was betrothed to someone else earlier and they bailed on her. So she was technically "shamed". Which doesn't make sense if she was six years old as claimed. Some sources also theorise it was Aeysha herself that propagated the idea of her being an child. Allah knows why. Nonetheless there was certainly a creepy age gap. But to be fair, if you're going to call Muhammed a paedophile, you've got to call nearly every other man in the world for centuries before and after one to. It was all the rage for a good chunk of history. And to his credit, his first wife was like 20 years older than him. Not atypical paedophile behaviour. So it's a perplexing situation.

Older men marrying young girls was not at all typical for many many cultures in the past, especially prepubescent girls. Likewise, that he married a woman older than him proves nothing. Lots of men who prey on children have been married to women of legal age. It's not at all perplexing; it's pedophilia.
