The "Questions that don't deserve their own thread" Thread


I know this has already been made but I seem to can't find it, so I thought a thread could be made for all those miscellaneous questions we all have both relating and unrelated to History

Ok, I'll ask some:

Is the stereotype that the British do love their tea, true ?
How did the Assyrians and Babylonians disappear ?

Why are the Southerners in America called Dixies ?

When potatoes first arrived to the European countries, why did people thought that the potato was evil and caused diseases? I've also heard that the Catholic Church declared the potato as a work of the devil. Why?

The South is sometimes called "Dixie". I knew a girl whose given name was Dixie, but as far as I know, Southerners are not collectively called "Dixies". Right, Clemmie?
