How do you figure? And I'm slightly offended that the first man in space was worth 25 points, but that the first woman in space was worth ten points less. >:/ The first spacewalk should be worth more points than the first manned orbit of the moon. Spacewalking is pretty damn hard, and while riding in a rocket isn't easy (what with all of the controls and such) it requires less physically tiring activity that walking in the vacuum that is space. In order to spacewalk, one must be able to control their trajectory in mid-air, with zero friction to help. When orbiting the moon, you flip a few switches and press a few buttons, like playing Guitar Hero. It rather amuses me that the highest point value you used for Russia was twenty-five, while America's high was 101. I mean, I agree that America won. Just... not by that much. Point-wise, they would have been nearly tied. Okay, I'm done with my ranting.
yes yes yes! I agree fully! Man I loved History, heck I still do..So what if teachers suck the fun out of it. Even to people who don't like History I say "History can be fun and really great to learn as long as you learn it the right way!~" of course being lectured on it is 'boring'
