A Good Way To Lose An Hour (Or A Few Evenings)

If you are a history buff, InfoPlease has a fantastic At-A-Glance World History summary.

It breaks down thusly:
Ancient History
1–999 (A.D.) World History
1000–1899 (A.D.) World History
1900–1999 (A.D.) World History
2000—2009 (A.D.) World History
Millennium Milestones

You can just read the summaries or, if you're like me, use them to send yourself off to Wikipedia Heaven.

Sigh. Mr. Robinson's high school history class is wasted on teenagers. Honestly: If I am ever well-off enough to retire early, I'm going to retire by going to study history at university.
