    Auburn is a multicultural shit pool

    Good to see the Australia’s future gene pool is looking healthy. There is nothing like anecdotal evidence to convince the masses. It is true that when one passes through Auburn you are looking for the hole god placed the enema, but it does have many cultural highlights that has it competing...

    xemoxxxcore wrote: "The war being "For oil" is a myth propagated by the Bush Administration to gather support for the war. In reality the war has nothing to do with securing oil supplies themselves. It's all about doing as much damage as possible to Iraq and killing as many people (up to 10...

    Re: wow, possibly the easiest thing ive done I was wondering if it was about some historian called John West and the fish he rejected at some remote dock in Alaska. It never occured to me that a metaphor was what I was looking at. Imagine my disappointment when discussing the catch of the day...

    What case studies are you doing?

    We are doing Western Imperialism. It fits in well with WW1, Japan 1901-37 and the Pacific War. It also has a good link, via its anti colonialism components, with History Wars.

    Narrative History

    Welcome to the HSC. Please don't kid yourselves into thinking that the battery hens that will mark the papers will anxiously sit there waiting for some budding von Ranke to brighten up their day.

    Turning pints of WW1

    Naval blockade is an arguable point and could be valid. I left it out because it was expected and the Germans knew they would be shut down at sea. Their submarines offered a glimmer of hope but they were used as an economic more than military tool. By economic I refer to their attacks on supply...
