Open Letter to my British Friends

Posted June 25th, 2016 at 04:01 AM by HistoryFreak1912

Hey, I've been doing some preliminary readings involving the UK leaving the European Union across the various forums. Some of the British folks I know there (and some here) are afraid, panicking, etc. Reactions vary from one end to the other, and some are very upset about this, especially in the other writing forum. If I remember correctly, a British poster on the Zelda Universe forum even declared that this was the demise of the UK.

Now a caveat: I'm an American. I've absolutely...

"You can always count on the Americans..."

Re-posted from another blog, in another forum.

NOTE: This is my reaction to America legalizing same-sexed marriage.

Winston Churchill had this to say about Americans, “You can always count on the Americans to do the right thing; after they've exhausted all other alternatives.”

Well, we've finally done it. We've finally legalized same-sexed marriage here in the United States. I could go marry another man and my government would say that was perfectly...

Le' Back!

Posted February 10th, 2013 at 03:47 AM by HistoryFreak1912

OK, how long was I gone?

Well, I am back again with a lot of history questions, and I feel a bit more mature than I was when I left. I guess I just needed time before I returned.

SO! This is a fresh new start where I come to ask a whole bunch of history questions. Some may not be all that serious, some may be serious, but hey, its history. It's not all about the serious war and politics.

I remember now why I liked history to begin with. It wasn't the big...

Zerkov, a character from "McTeague" by Frank Norris (1899)

Posted September 7th, 2011 at 01:01 PM by HistoryFreak1912

I don't know why, but every time I read about Zerkov in Frank Norris' McTeague, I feel offended.

Basically, the book has Zerkov, a red-headed, Polish Jew who keeps pestering a Mexican woman over gold and other priceless possessions her family once owned.

Basically, he's the living stereotype of the greedy Jew.

I guess it's just my modern senses glaring at Norris, wondering why the **** he made this character. Of course, I keep having to remind myself that...

I think something is wrong with me...

Listening to YouTube videos of Siberian Huskies howling/singing/crying gives you an eerie, haunting vibe. It sounds…passionate, almost sad.

Sometimes, whenever I’m in one of my moods, I feel just like them. If I were a Siberian Husky, I’d be howling too.

I don’t know. You ever had those moments when you were just generally depressed? I don’t mean depressed as in the typical depression you see on TV and read about. I mean the kind when...
