Sorry for the 'cut and paste' post. Had nothing original for the theme and having a cough/cold didn't help with thinking creatively.

I am sure there are much better takes on the theme at the site:

  4. It reminds me of the first year of my university course which was supposed to be a history of the world in 300 lectures. I can remember about 200 or so words of it now and those are not too disimilar to the 200 in your piece. Greetings on Theme Thursday.
