We all know that Herodotus just made shit up, Plutarch wasn't much better, and Tacitus was a gossipy old prude. Nobody even knows who Homer was, or when he lived, so he isn't very reliable, either. Modern "historians" are political hacks, and I rather suspect all historians - ever - were, too.
As your Spiritual Advisor™, though, I am pretty much omniscient, and I can give you the real goods. Ask me anything about what really happened, and I'll set the record straight, once and for all. This can range from "Who actually won a given war?", to, "How accurate was that one TV show?", to, "What part of Scotland's history caused them to be such amazingly friendly and outgoing people?"
DISCLAIMER: As most teachers and professors are hidebound worshippers of people like "Bede" and some lady called "Livy", the use of these answers in school/university may garner less than desireable results. Tell them what they want to hear, and spread the Truth™ in other venues.
