Why being a history buff sucks

“The Middle Ages were a dark, brutal time and absolutely no progress was made.”

“Nero played a fiddle.”

“Everyone in Columbus’s day thought the Earth was flat.”

“Napoleon was really short”

“Puritans and Victorians thought sex was evil”

“Galileo was persecuted my the Church because he did science.”

“Witches were burned at the stake in Salem”

“The only issue in the Civil War was slavery, and no one in the North was racist.”
