comment What language(s) were spoken within the Holy Roman Empire?
Ah yes, good call @knut. Although weren't all Oïl languages probably mutually intelligible at that time?

comment Is Aluffi's "Algebra. Chapter 0" a good introduction to algebra?
Not particularly challenging?! The exercises in Aluffi are well-known to be incredibly difficult.

comment Why did Hitler attack the Soviet Union when he was still busy fighting the United Kingdom?
Yes, I'm sure it was, @Matthaeus. But I'm also quite confident the sort of common view of Germans on Jews, Slavs, and other "untermenschen" wasn't so prevalent in Italy at the time. Indeed, their are reliable quotes of Mussolini finding the Nazi/Hitler's racial policy very distasteful. I get the feeling fascist Italy collaborated with the Nazis and sponsored their racial policy insofar as they were allies, but didn't really have the same conviction of belief (let alone zeal) behind it.

comment Why did Hitler attack the Soviet Union when he was still busy fighting the United Kingdom?
@Matthaeus: Only in part. Spain didn't really subscribe to the racial policies of the Nazis though (nor did Italy really, although they were an "ally" for some time). And Spain didn't send any troops or military assistance as far as I know. Probably because they weren't very powerful, in fairness, but still. Switzerland is a complex case... they often have a guise of neutrality, but what they do underhandedly can be seen as very partisan in many cases.

comment Is Angular Momentum truly fundamental?
Sure, but then you could just say the spin is carried over from the intrinsic spin of the fundamental particles...

comment Is Angular Momentum truly fundamental?
@IncnisMrsi: I know composite particles also have spin, but the point is, one could envisage that arising from angular momentum by motion, and not "intrinsically".
