Ok, I'm doing my leaving certificate at the end of this year. The history course requires me to do a project. I want to see if UG can come up with a better project than I've thought of.

It can be on anything but there are rules.
It must be:
Historically significant
and
Not too broad (the narrower the better in a way)

Thanks in advance

The Soviet Union could hardly be called communist at the time of it's fall.

The Spanish Civil war is a pretty interesting subject to do it on, I'd go with that.

An analytical insight into the moral and ethical philosophies used by a grand consensus of philosophers and lawmakers in terms of writing criminal law.

I could refer you to a whole bunch of sources, primary and otherwise.

Girl (Ned/chav) annoying me on the bus.

Me "Have you ever bled out your arse-hole?"

Her: Facial expression was priceless - "What??! Noo!"

Me: "Well if you want to keep it that way, **** off."

She then turned away and whimpered.

Thanks for all the suggestions.
Sorry Kensai, it can't be after 1992 so I'd be leaving out all the good bits about your penis.

Egggy, I'm robbing your idea :P

I must look into some of these anyway. I thinking the battle of les mercedes, mainly cause it;s funny.

You could do something guitar related. That would be cool.

Especially seeing as most people do something to do with War, or anything that involves death, it might give the examiner a break.
