Call it a rant I suppose.
Write a paper, 20 pages including the bib, and it's got a minimum of 35 sources.
That's around 15 pages of text, with a minimum of 35 unique citations.
Why don't I just throw an encyclopedia at them with my signature on it? No room for, well, anything but citations!
I may just write 20 pages of block quotes to get the point across.
I grow very tired of useless, long, meaningless papers about nothing - after I was already required to read useless, long, meaningless papers about nothing - so that I can cite useless, long, meaningless papers about nothing.
Did I mention this is History, and 20 sources have to be primary?
20 primary sources... I doubt that even modern events have than many.
Doctor of wasting trees and binary digits - that's what I'm working on!
