- Will someone please do my History Midterm for me?
- Q: I'm kidding. It just that most questions in the History section seem as though they are taken strait from that night's homework assigment. Although some answers ( I dare say the majority ) are correct, there is such a wide margin of error with Yahoo Answers and internet sources in general (unless you visit an .edu sight or something akin to that)..just hope that these people recheck their sources, and shudder to think...research the information themselves.History is incredibly interesting. Filled with as much melodrama, sex, violence, and intrigue as a summer blockbuster.Why not research it?That being said, I will end this diatribe.Because I really do have a History Midterm to research.My fellow History lovers...it's going to be hard to pick a best answer! Thanks be to some diety that there are Yahoo Answers fans that also enjoy the study of History.Also I am lucky enough to have acsess to JSTOR and EBSCO host! Okay really now, I'm going to get to work...I resigned myself to one hour messing around on the Internet....it's time to get down to business. (and the Transcendental movement) Cheers!
- A: Thank You!!! I work in a book store, and between the people who come in and expect me to do their research for them, or worse, for their children, and this site, I really do get discouraged. If people do not ever do their own research, they will never actually learn anything.
