I've been a substitute teacher in history quite a lot lately and most of the stuff's been about WWI. / I wish the lessons were like: "The Treaty of Versailles was damn unfair to Germany, they had to pay over 130 billions of reparations, shrink their army, let Polish Corridor, Alsace & Lorraine and so on go..." That is, I'd lecture in spawling fashion and all the students would be very interested and ask a lot of questions. / How the things usually go: "And WWI had a lot of influence on women's rights, because..." "Could you put the iPod away, please." "No paper planes in the class!" "Let's concentrate on this subject now." "Can we go outside and play basketball?"
