A historian is a research person and an archivist. I do both. In addition, I have boxed, and study / break down films. I have seen at least a 1,000 boxing matches and own many dvd's and boxing tapes. Having said that there are plenty who know more than me.
If you have astigmatism, that's fine. Just don't call people out on numbers, or dates which is something I've seen you do before.
I study films ,have magazines going back to the early 50s ,over a hundred books on the subject ,and boxed ,gloved and bareknuckle.When you call someone out in my country you are inviting them to step out the door for a decider,I dont get your numbers and dates sentence.Ps post a photo of Johnsons eye please.
