    ....do I still keep checking tMP when I still have 2,598 words of my history coursework that need doing URGENTLY?

    and, bearing that in mind, why i am posting this random post?

    anyone? please??? does tMP have weird magical/hypnotic powers?

    Where else can you go to feel some love and sympathy AND get help with your history paper? What is the topic?

    “In what ways, and to what extent, does the concept of Spain’s ‘Golden Age’ apply more specifically to the reign of Philip II than to the whole period 1474-1598? Justify your answer by reference to the similarities and differences you detect between the periods before and after the accession of Philip in 1556”

    bet you wish you'd never asked eh BBCBari?!?

    and shame on you HBB... cheating indeed!! are you suggesting my intellectual prowess and historical knowledge is not enough?
    well actually it's just that i'd rather spend the fourteen pounds on beer comiserating my results.......

    Do you think that King Phillips Fallout with Queen Elizabeth the 1st led to a rivalry in colonial expansion that cause some turf wars in America?

    It seems to me that yeah, Columbus sailed from Spain or whatever, but the real rival to fight for colnies didn't kick in until King Phillip. I might be totally wrong though as history is not my forte

    ummmm..........errrrr.......... ok. you've totally panicked me now. the syllabus doesn't cover the Amercan aspect. It's more into continuity and change throught the reigns of Ferdinand and Isabella, CHarles V and Philip II. So whilst the detail has to be minimal, it's about policies and movements in Spain over the 100 years. I'm going for the tried and tested areas of economy, culture, foreign policy (inc. New World), and religion.

    Whaddaya mean your asleep already..........?!?

    YES . Where else could I spend hours mindlessly, numbingly, aimlessly wandering around, sometimes just looking blankly at endless postings. :-D

    I do it all the time :)- spending all day on a computer trying to do your coursework (which you've had two weeks to do!) and is due in at the end of the day-helps to have people around to keep you company! and everyone is really helpful and can offer 2nd opinions, or proof read your work for you (if your spelling and punctuation is really bad!) (thanks to all those poor souls i've imposed my english or history essays on!)

    ps- essay bank is not a good idea!!
