A major project funded by unknown benefactors is to rewrite history. Instead of the usual H I S T O R Y we shall have Y R O T S I H - the complete reversal of all assumptions about the past.

'We shall be turning history on its head' said Prof Bob Pep - who has the advantage of seeing things from both points of view. 'There is another advantage, we can get away from the His story problem and the His Tory hang ups. This is revolutionary stuff!'

However, not all historians see things in a similar way. Prof Adam Cranky calls the new approach 'short sighted and likely to cause neck ache'. He is worried about people's eyesight and ability to understand History written backwards. 'We will start with today and end with Adam and Eve' he joked 'and there they will find me and my wife Eve!'

So the struggle to understand history goes on and students can expect to have all their ideas thrown into the maelstrom of unknown forces. Eventually will we know if we are going backwards or forward?

Make j.w.'s day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
