Awesome History

I know I've already got a couple of projects going on here that I'm publicizing (Ebb, The Golden Anvil and my Let's Plays) but here's one more. Of them I'd say Golden Anvil and this one are my two big passions to have finished in the next half year.

My current website project, for those who hate history or never found it interesting.

  • Where's the website for the people who love history?
  • This will cater to them too :) it's just meant to present history in a slightly less linear fashion, with greater dynamics.
  • You could never make me love history or anything about our species.
  • Then maybe don't post in the thread?
  • I don't have the privilege to say that in my thread to people who give me a attitude or disagree with me. Then again, we don't HAVE to argue, I'm just sharing my opinions on history. IT happens all the time, I guess some one could tell you this isn't a blog. I won't argue with you over something so stupid. This is your thread, I respect that you are doing something with your time.

    PEACE

    Can you quick do a segment on nineteeth century Middle Eastern politics? I've got an essay due tomorrow. :D

    More seriously, this looks like it will be a nice resource. I look forward to seeing how it pans out.
  • Well the hope is if you don't know about a period or know very little, you can quickly click the period, do a little reading, and voila!
  • I had a fun idea a while back of writing a bunch of History that was completely wrong. For example, how Rock and Roll changed Gaileleo's rulings in Athens.
  • Make a book of that.

    I love Richard Armour. His books are hilarious and completely mangle history, yet do it in such a way that if you know even a little bit about the time period, you can usually sort out the truth.

    And he's written many more. One of my favorite rhymes ever came out of his book on the Cold War in which he made fun of the idea that you could save yourself from a nuclear blast by hiding in a lead lined freezer.

    Move over lamb and leg of cow,
    My Geiger says the time is now.
    Now I lay me down to sleep,
    And if I die, at least I'll keep.
