Stuff You Missed in History Class

Boring
March 26th, 2015
Really struggled to finish this time waster. It's just a collection of random subjects that seem cooked up by some low aptitude people during a tedious lunch break. What a shame. History is so rich with the truly curious and amazing. There are subjects here that frankly are totally uninteresting, or have been hashed over so many times they become cliché. Some subjects are about as fascinating as the history of the Hoover Dam, which in fact in more able hands would prove more interesting than this drivel.
