3. American History Jun 20, 2011, 11:01 kanniballl
On one hand, back as a kid I hated history. It was memorizing a bunch of dates and names as opposed to learning "how" to do something (math, science, etc) or at least to think that much about anything (literature, philosophy, etc).

Meanwhile the complaints about the lack of knowledge about the Korean war... I don't think any of my classes through high school covered anything that contemporary. Almost all of the focus was on older stuff (Ancient, Medieval, the Colonial US, etc) and the most recent content I recall learning was WWII. I don't ever recall spending much or any time on stuff like Korea or Vietman.

I did alright and probably know more than the average person, but looking back I wish I knew more. It is interesting to think about the past.
