    @TrakNar, what kind of device are you reading the forums on? I saw the same thing when reading the forum on my iPhone thanks to the little bitty narrow screen, but here on my laptop it looks normal again.

    iPad. On my laptop screen, the nested quotes look fine.

    Lots of historians here! I wonder what (if anything) to make of this very interesting confluence or coincidence or whatever you want to call it.

    I'm his age.

    I have a 9-year-old. That means I'm only old enough to have a 9-year-old. And 9-year-olds can't post here. I'm not old enough to be anyone here's mother. [face_not_talking]

    I went to school when people were upset about Chewie being dead. Now I have a cool hat to show that I am a technical student and people are upset about Chewie being alive.

    In my experience there's no such thing as luck.


    Sent from a loaner phone with horrid autocorrect. Expect lots of errors.

    Well, what's history? Reading a bunch of textual sources and trying to form a continuous narrative from them while explaining contradictions and having debates over which sources really count and which sources don't.


    Sound familiar? :p

    :D

    Personally, I have always considered my love of history as an extension of my love for any interesting universe and well told stories.

    Even if history is full of plot holes and retcons.

    Also, you don't want to get into debates about how big the Persian army really was at Thermopylae, or how many banks of oars a tessakonteres really had...

    Bye the way @GrandAdmiralJello - have you seen the Dominion from Wildstar? When I saw this video I couldn't help but think of you:



    And I think it helps that the other side is pretty close to what you think the Rebel Alliance is like:

    I'm guessing that's an MMO of some sort, judging by the name?

    I have to admit that's pretty hilarious. And indeed, quite fitting.

    I must be getting old. My left hip has been giving me a lot of trouble. Time to go break it so I can have it replaced...

    Indeed, it is an MMO. Gameplay mechanics look pretty interesting to me though.

    But what has interested me the most is that everything about the game has a sense of humor, with the trailers being particularly funny.
