We might be dealing with 7chan's resident Grandpa.

Among his many eccentricities, he insists there's only around 4 people who post to all of 7chan, and frequently gets upset when different people's responses don't make sense in the context of a single person's responses.

Then again, it could be just another tinfoil hat wearing dumbass. The internet is full of them.

Not sure. Even if you go back to the founding of the United States, the revolution was largely led by a bunch of rich pricks who didn't want to pay taxes which they rightfully owed England

Read that shit, faggot.

Not a single fucking thing I posted isn't delved into in greater detail in those books. If you'd actually read any of them or followed the work being done on these cultures in the last two decades, none of the shit I said would be a surprise to you.

You are fucking old and so is your knowledge.

Do any of you study History at undergraduate level or higher, or are you thinking of studying it at this level? I would be interested, if there are any of you, to hear your experiences, what you think of your course and syllabus and whether you think it is a waste of time or useful.
I personally am in my final year of Undergraduate study and I am doing my dissertation on the Nuremberg Trials. Although I enjoy modern history, the module choices for it were poor, so I am mainly studying medieval history as well as one module on Farming and society in Victorian Britain.

make your money, then study history... history is not a young man's game anyhow

Same boat. My passion is history and politics, but I'm not sure exactly what kind of jobs are available. I also love computers so I'm looking at that.

Also kind of hesitant to take history at the college level because from what I've heard it's basically SJW shit for 90% of the class.

Historian 14/09/22(Mon)08:56 No. 14418

I just got my BA in History this past May.

there's actually quite a few options open for History graduates because it's such a general field, but the two biggest and most obvious choices are Teaching and Law.

I chose the Law route and entered a Paralegal certificate program. When that's done hopefully I can land a cozy state job making 42K a year along with benefits and retirement plans. I would have become an attorney, but 100K+ in loans wasn't worth something that I could possibly fail out of. If the big money and big risk is more your speed, best of luck to you buddy.

Paralegal is actually pretty practical for historians. most of the job is researching the history of stare decisis cases and applying them to current cases. If you like studying the history of law, you can make good money simply reading law history books and writing motions/briefs.

There's other jobs and such applicable, museum curators, book preservationists, archivist, etc. But the livable wages are with Law and Teaching.

hmmm...good thing my grandfather isnt alive, he would spit in your face.

He liberated a death camp shortly after the Battle of the Bulge. I doubt very much he had any skepticism about the holocaust.

Historian 14/09/15(Mon)22:13 No. 14402

yeah, can't believe it being fake is a real thing. Eisenhower ordered lots of photos of the death camps to be taken just because of anti semitism

Historian 14/09/16(Tue)19:36 No. 14406

It's okay, there's still enough holocaust survivors around to spit in his face, defecate in his breakfast, and piss in his coffee.

I made a game to teach the geography of water scarcity. What do you think?

Different kinds of chocolate will be distributed around the classroom in different combinations.

If chocolate Is allocated to you hide it or keep it in the open if you wish

At the end of the game, the chocolate goes to whoever holds it.
At 20 second intervals the game is stopped temporarily
If you do not have a chocolate wrapper at this time, you die of dehydration. If you do have a wrapper, you need to give it back (to the bin)

If you have a chocolate AS WELL you can invest it back to us (research!)and you will get triple the chocolates the next time the game is stopped. If you have just spare wrappers you can give it back for double the wrappers in the next round.

What if battle:

Alexander The Great VS Julius Caesar

Who do you think was the better general? Both conquered. Both succeeded when the odds were against them. Both fought in battle (frontline commanders) who would win?

Neutral ground. Open field with hills on both sides.

Historian 14/09/08(Mon)18:56 No. 14391

Roman legions were better than Alexander's forces, so if we gave them both Roman legions and made Alexander know how to use them as well as he knew how to command his own, it'll br equal footing.
I still think Caesar would win.
The problem with battles throughout history is that there is nearly always a slight technological advantage.
However in Caesar's battle with Pompey, for example (the name eludes me), both sides had the same level of military technology and same quality of troops. Caesar came, saw, and conquered.
Besides Caesar was well aware of Alexander (and saw him as a role model), so I think he'd have figured out a way to put that info into use.

Historian 14/09/10(Wed)09:06 No. 14395

Alexander was one of the four greatest military geniuses in history; Caesar was much more of a political manipulator than a soldier, and his conquests came from the fact that he was fortunate enough to command Roman legionaries, the finest army the world had yet seen. Caesar was not worthy to have carried Alexander's gloves.

Historian 14/09/11(Thu)12:20 No. 14398

So what you are saying is they would team up and rule the world?

Part of a single lecture that covers Marx's writing in the context of Russian literature, out of a total of 26 lectures (the rest of which don't cover Marx's writing), constitutes "teaching Marx?"

Normally when you say "teaching X" that means X is the focus, not some ancillary topic that's covered as part of a ranging discourse on a wide variety of topics.

That's quite the corner you've backed yourself into there.

Historian 14/09/11(Thu)01:56 No. 14397

It's not a single lecture, actually. He talks at lenght about Marx as someone who has presented the most important critique of society in the fourth or fifth lecture I think. In fact, the IRL students apparently even got a handout with Marx's writings.

Now, I'm not going to argue the definition of "teach". If you really think my statement is incorrect because we have different definitions, then I don't see any point in further discourse.

I'm going to give you a while to see if the fucking enormous problem in your counter argument becomes clear to you.

Here's a hint... it has to do, with which of these groups of people, is dead and gone, and which OF THESE PEOPLE, is still VERY MUCH ALIVE AND BEING A CONSIDERABLE PAIN IN THE ASS, AND AS SUCH ARE RELEVANT TO WHAT WE ARE TALKING ABOUT RIGHT NOW.

Jesus, it's like talking to fucking 4th graders with you people sometimes. It's all just, hear a word you know, go ahead and shout out whatever other words are loosely associated to it in your empty little brain. Fuck me I gotta get off the internet.
