• Why didn’t the world have color back then?

    Best answer: The world was not black and white. Early cameras did not have the ability to capture color, therefore all pictures taken before the ability to capture color in photographs were black and white.

  • Why was Hitler such a monster?

    He was pure evil. Because of him I now have to study more chapters in history compared to otherwise, the guy's a sicko.

    He was pure evil. Because of him I now have to study more chapters in history compared to otherwise, the guy's a sicko. When he was ordering for the Jews to be terminated, was he just too selfish to consider all the harm he would be causing innocent students by causing the events that would be added into textbooks and make them even more massive (and in what is quite possible the most boring subject of all)? Does he have no humanity, no empathy, no remorse? How can his conscience be clear? His heart must be made of stone, to do such a thing to us.

    Best answer: Those who lost the land on which they resided, were obviously upset. They had no say so. The Nazi perpetuated the holocaust, but it wasn't they whose land was given away!
    First war 1947-49. Israel calls it the war of independence.
    A historians account. https://www.nytimes.com/2008/05/04/books...

    Next war.
    1967 - the six day war, June 5th - June 10th. Syria, Jordan and Egypt versus Israel.
    Miko Peled's take on the 6 day war is not the U.S./ Israel spun version. His father was the General when Israel was founded in 1948.
    Syria, Jordan, and Egypt wanted there land back.
    The six day war was fought precisely for that reason. U.S. backed Israel. And USSR the Arabs. But a decision was taken not to participate in their proxies local battle, to avoid a direct confrontation between U.S. and USSR.
    Uncle Sammy claimed USS Liberty had been attacked by Egypt and so unlike the USSR, it found a pretext to help Israel defeat the Arabs. Even in 2018, those papers have not been made public! However the tape recording can NOW be heard by all.

    In the bigger scheme of things, the imperialist powers U.S.and Britain (it was their balfour agreement that caused the whole mess, same land promised to both the Jews, and the Arabs), saw Israel as their proxy in the region.

    The U.N. is ignored.

    Best answer: We always knew there was the possibility of war with Japan and the navy even played war games with Japan as the enemy. We also knew they might try to attack Pearl harbor. But we did not know the exact plans nor the methods they would use for such an attack. Once we stopped selling them oil for their war machine the war was inevitable and as long as we wanted to condemn them for their attack on China and not support it we had to stop selling them oil so nothing Roosevelt could have done to Japan short of appeasement and condoning their war of aggression against China, could have kept us out of the war. But the actual plans for the attack were kept secret and they took a Northerly route for the attack so we did not detect their fleet.

  • How would you rate my writing skills?

    Best answer: I'm going to politely disagree with the positive reviews. I see a handful of outright mistakes and a lot of odd choices with verb tenses that IMO weaken the narrative.

    Best answer: I'm going to politely disagree with the positive reviews. I see a handful of outright mistakes and a lot of odd choices with verb tenses that IMO weaken the narrative. And I don't see the semicolon use as correct at all. (Horrors, I've disagreed with my friend Crow!)

    I rarely do line-by-line critique here because the writers' reactions tend to be defensive, hostile, or abusive. If you care to see detail and can promise you'll act like a professional, I can try to find time to do a LBL. (And it's perfectly okay if you're not yet ready for that, too.)

    Edit: We stay quiet for a while; [<---replace with a comma] [the ←-delete needless words] both [of us<--delete] either too tired or too annoyed to bother talking [to each other<--delete]. It's not like I'm complaining, either. [←-This is wordy, but it also gives your narrator a real-sounding voice] The wind is howling [howls] like a horror movie [opener←-awkward word choice. Maybe ‘soundtrack’?] and the streets are heavily shadowed with a pale late-night glow[←-Switch to active voice, present tense, like the first part of the sentence: ...and a pale late-night glow heavily shadows the streets]. It's comforting [in some odd way, like<--delete][.] I could sink into the dark shadows of the night and disappear if I wanted to. [Comforting as it is, ←-delete] the[The] delayed pain of Ameki's nails digging into my arm [is kicking in now,--delete] [kicks in], and I [Eek, failure to proofread!] [it]takes all my willpower [not] to [not<--delete] ask her to lighten up[ a bit←-delete].

    I know, that’s hard to read all marked up. Most of what I did was make all the verbs present tense, removing present progressive (“is xing”) and get rid of words you don’t need. If you agreed with every correction, which you don’t have to do, it would read:

    We stay quiet for a while, both either too tired or too annoyed to bother talking. It's not like I'm complaining, either. The wind howls like a horror movie soundtrack and a pale late-night glow heavily shadows the streets. It's comforting. I could sink into the dark shadows of the night and disappear if I wanted to. The delayed pain of Ameki's nails digging into my arm kicks in, and it takes all my willpower not to ask her to lighten up.

    Nothing’s missing or radically changed, really, but that first paragraph went from 104 to 82 words. You see if you can reduce the next paragraph, or some other paragraph, by twenty percent. It’s a learned skill, and this is a good time to start.

    I am writing a medieval fantasy and I hear a lot of opinions about how they shouldn't all be blond. I have characters with other races in book, but they are minor. My two main characters are blond, and the story is set in a medieval European kingdom. I hear a lot of people saying this is cliche and characters should be biracial. Not discounting other races, but I feel like a racist right now that I am being advised to change one of the blond characters so I wouldn't seem like a racist? Why is this a big deal? Would this be okay if I keep them both blond?
