Sophomore Tom Meyer reportedly asked “What is history?” in the introduction to his essay written at 11:55 PM this past Wednesday.
“I was racking my brain for the perfect introduction,” Meyer explained. “I had four minutes until the paper was due and would need at least two minutes to upload and submit the file, and suddenly inspiration came to me.”
“What is history, and what does it mean to study it?” the pensive paper asks. “Are we living in history now, and what does that mean for us?”
At press time, Meyer was concluding his essay with the suggestion that even in the distant future, people will probably still study history.
