comment Is Kaspersky Lab a military unit?
@inappropriateCode Aren't border guards and coast guard under FSB? If we're being sufficiently unprecise, they might be referred to as "military".

comment Are there no naturally blue foods?
@Simon B Well that's culture-dependent. In my country, it's considered completely normal food.

comment Do consumer computers include components that can connect to the internet when the computer is apparently turned off?
@Caesar OK, I understand from where your reasoning is coming from, but I still disagree. I'm right now a bit short on time, so I can't promise an answer, but I will try to make one.

comment Do consumer computers include components that can connect to the internet when the computer is apparently turned off?
@Caesar I disagree with your interpretation, because same systems are user in non-consumer applications like those described on the Intel's page you linked to. In my opinion, the fact that this is targeting consumer systems instead of industrial has not been sufficiently proven.

-1 for not answering the question. It, at the time of my vote, very clearly starts with Do consumer computers... References provided in the answer do not seem to apply to consumer products.

comment Did people run through the military graveyards at Verdun?
@JasonR Maybe it's a cultural issue? In some cultures, it's pretty much unimaginable to actually step onto a grave intentionally, without a veeeery good excuse.

comment Do strobes on top of school buses improve safety?
@Ian Ringrose +1 for that! I myself had many, many uncomfortable situations with strobing bicycle lights.

comment Have the ending credits of Rambo III been changed?
I'd like to second Stuart's comment. I'm quite sure that I've seen "original" credits at least once on TV.

comment Did Hedviga Golik sit dead and undiscovered for 42 years in front of her TV?
There are also some differences in the size of the apartment, first link claims 13 m², second 18. Also Jutarnji list claims that the apartment wasn't hers to begin with: They claim that she usurped it from the building janitor/supervisor.

comment Did Hedviga Golik sit dead and undiscovered for 42 years in front of her TV?
Some info from a Yugoslavian: In Yugoslavia during communism apartments in general had their own power meters and "bearers of residential rights" were expected to pays their own bills. In any case, in the article from Jutarnji List, it's claimed that it was the architect who designed the house who payed the utility bills for the apartment. The fact that someone else than the owner of the apartment was paying the bills isn't so unusual, since problems with property rights aren't that unusual. What is unusual is the claim that it was the architect who payed the bills.

comment Is Vatican Radio causing childhood leukaemia?
@Randolf Richardson It's related mostly to Chad's comment. I specifically excluded devices used for RF transmission in my question.

comment Does recharging a battery when it is only half-way dead decrease its life span?
@psusi Good to know! I guess I missed that because such batteries aren't commonly used in portable applications OP mentioned...
