    and cross-check them 6 ways from sunday... Wiki, Google, and follow at least half-a-dozen links...

    let's just say, as long time SCA "private scholars" of the Viking period, for instance? it's not a pinch of salt, it's a cup or two with almost anything.

    Quality varies WIDELY, let alone WILDLY. The products you get from History Channel, Discovery, PBS, BBC, BBCA, etc., will be of varying quality. The theories, the "experts", the re-enactors who help productions "come to life" -- question authority! here as well as anywhere else.

    We used to find the History International Channel pretty reliable, but don't know what state it is in these days. A fair number of the channels that used to be pretty educational now seem to be far more "edu-tainment-al" -- lots and lots of hours to fill, eh?

    "real" work : a job where you wash your hands BEFORE you use the bathroom...

      Being the history buff that I am, I know that they sometimes play fast and loose. I also can't figure out all the Christian stuff. History is not the Bible's strong suit.

      Thank your stars you're not that way/Turn your back and walk away/Don't even pause and ask them why/Turn around and say 'goodbye'/Just wish them well.....
