I like history. I like writing. Therefore, I like historical writing.

(I only like writing in terms of debates though, if it's related to analyzing some symbolism in a book in English class, then no).

I will be beginning a very long span of threads in the history forum, ranging from Ancient times to Modern History (20th century). This will span over a couple of weeks, since I'll most likely be doing a couple each day (at least 1).

You may read them, and enjoy some brief and broad contextual knowledge. It's fun stuff.

Also, Uther, that crown's going to be mine soon boy. Keep it shiny for me :)

Underlying most arguments against the free market is a lack of belief in freedom itself. -Friedman

Nothing is so permanent as a temporary government program. - Friedman

I'm sure we can resolve this with another history debate.

I'm sure we could, but that has to wait. I have too much work and finals are coming up.

Also, I meant the history forums, not debating. I am going to be active in this forum, but I probably will not start any new debates after I finish my current one, since I won't have time for it.

You could contact Tejretics if you want the thread to get stickied.

What do you mean? Is that like when a thread gets put at the top and it gets a special border for when you click on it? Like it is for bench's ddo history thread?

If so, I will most likely do that then.

Yes, that's a stickied thread. The average thread gets stickied for roughly two weeks.

And is tejretics the only person that can do that?

Airmax is able to do that as well I think. But Tej is usually in charge of sticking threads. So ask Tej first.
