    274. The only way you can build an armored car is if you also know how to build robots.

    this actually makes sense, seeing the immensely tough job of putting the armor onto the car.

    277. People in the old days were much slower than people now. A person would require 30 years in the ancient era to travel the same distance as a person in the modern era can travel in 1 year.

    278. Steel was not needed to build the Eiffel Tower but radio and a forge was.

    279. Likewise Broadway did not need the knowledge of drama and music to produce all those hit musicals, it only needed electricity to run all those advertising signs.

    I'm sorry about that, and I will remove that right away.

    280. Antarctica was never discovered, since the only way to get through icebergs is with a submarine. Because of this, no one made it to the North Pole yet. Also, Antarctica only has 3 ice tiles all across the bottom of the Globe.

    China and Ancient Egypt can't exchange technical knowledge because their languages are written without alphabets.

    284. Apparently there's a button somewhere with a big question mark on it. By pressing it all the knowledge of how the world works will become available. "Worldopedia"... I wonder where the button is...

    285. Transport boats that look like the ones that landed on the beaches of Normandy June 6th 1944 (if you don't know what I'm talking about, google D-Day or June 6th 1944) can carry four Modern Armor, Mechanized Infantry, or Gunship units, yet carriers can oly carry 3 fighters or Jet fighters. Unless I am mistaken, a landing boat could barely fit a tank, and those were the larger ones...

    @ Lemon Merchant- Thank you, no one has said that to me yet.

    286. Spies automatically get a sex change as soon as their civilization becomes industrialized.

    287. It can take a spy several years to travel to a distant city but they can return to their country's capital city (and only to their capital city) immediately

    Actually, the Egyptian hieroglyphics are mostly alphabetic in nature. It's just a more complex system - some represent 1 letter, some 2, and some 3 and, like other alphabetic systems of the general era and region, they leave out most of the vowel sounds. And they can also represent literally the thing they depict, but that is generally done by adding a mark that indicates that that is what it being done (the owl symbol with a determinative mark means "owl, without it it is the letter "m").
