All of us have to study history... And I have to ask, is there an actual point? I really don't see why we have to. My teachers ask my classmates and I this question, too, and their answer is: so we won't make the same mistakes again. <!--start sarcastic tone of voice>Well, shit! Is that why other countries are going into wars again? I guess it is, then. <--!end sarcastic voice>

Well anyway...I have another question... Could anyone give me an interesting question about history? I'm doing a project for school. Some sort of booklet with 20 questions and answers about history. I only have ten as of now. I don't need the answers. I'll just scour the internet for them. Thank you!

Who killed Lapu Lapu?
Who killed Magellan?
Which shoe of Jose Rizal did he drop at the river before throwing the other one?
How tall was the first Tesla Tower?
What is the blast radius of the first atomic bomb?
How did the Chinese discover fireworks?
What killed Alexander the Great?
How many chambers does the Great Pyramid have?
Who's face is it at the Sphinx?
What is the main reason the Spaniards conquer the Philippines?

The reason why you gotta study history is because it's for your grades. If you don't attend their classes, what grade are they supposed to give you.

That's what my Trigonometry professor tells us, Mr. Sherwin Jeff Garcia.

See what I mean?

Wow...lucky you. My teachers suck. They know we're insulting them as much as we can behind their backs because of their incredibly horrible grammar, and they make "parinig." (I'm sorry, I don't know how to translate that into English.) Whatever. And our school has this rule about no homework to be given on Fridays. They keep on making up lame excuses to get around that. Pffft.

Why do we study history? Well, the same answer: so we won't make the same mistakes that our ancestors made...

When did the olympics start? What's the purpose?
What ancient civilization reached the golden age?
When did the internet start? How did it start?
Where is the origin of the alphabet?
Who invented the chopsticks?
Who made the longest speech? And where?

paring=whipers to the wind..i just though of that..lol

really? your school has that particular rule?first time i ever heard something like that..

history is something that i actually find interesting, because somehow i can get an idea of where a particular nation's culture originated from, what their traditions are, and their beliefs, so as at least i can have a vague idea of how to interact with them, i know that its a lame subject, but it really depends on the professor, i had a blast back in hi-skul in hostory classes.mainly coz my prof had a mr.t hair-do..lol

what gun was used to kill jose rizal? ask your prof about that, let's see how good he is.. remington is the right answer..hehe
exactly what time was rizal killed? 7:03
who was the brother of one of the 3 martyr priests that helped rizal get into letran?
what is the oldest school in the country?
what is the 2nd oldest school in the country?
who is the first ever to enrol in the oldst school in the country?hahahaha this one's a killer..
