don't really matter now mate...

you don't need to show voter registration or even photo proof of identity to vote these days..

says it's unconstitutional to make you prove who you say you are in order to vote..

however you still need to prove who you are to get on a plane or a borrow library book. Apparently not unconstitutional for me to prove who I am to borrow a book but to vote for someone to run the country ?

In the Napoleonic Wars, why was the British defence a square and not a circle?

Guessing, but in evolutionary theory one species doesn't evolve on a linear basis, but diverges. It doesn't follow that related species cease to exist. There's a link between ants and wasps, can't remember who begat whom.

My understanding is humans and apes had a common ancestor and that humans evolved in one direction and modern apes went in another.

My issue with evolution is how do you evolve a double circulatory system? That seems like one hell of a leap that could only really be taken in one mutation.

You can arrange squares so that your troops won't be firing on each other.

This is probably stupid of me but you know the way reversing sensors work on cars, could something similar be fitted on a blind persons walking cane and they wear blue tooth ear set to warn then of obstacles.

It's probably already been done :oops:

EDIT: I was right already been done and looks amazing

I assume you mean the infantry square formation?

This formation was to tackle cavalry - the idea being that you have lines of troops on all sides, so that the cavalry cannot flank your unit and attack from the rear.

A square works better than a circle because, when facing horses, you need to be a few men deep to be able to present a decent line of bayonets/swords to scare or sufficiently injure the horse or stop it breaking through.

With a circle the men at the back, say 5 men deep, would be too tightly packed to be able to manoeuvre, whereas those at the front would be too far apart.
