    What of these is your favorite subject, either in school or just to read about on your own if you aren't in school, and WHY? The why is very important because otherwise this thread will be very boring because of lots of one word replies!

    Prediction: It will be a race between science and math.

    My favorite subject in High School was Current Events. Basically OT with news articles and much cooler mods (teachers) ;P

    It's always been history, since I both enjoy it most and am best in it.

    This is more true outside of school than it is inside of school; while most of my classes at school are non-history (since I have taken pretty much every history class my high school offers and I will not be majoring in history come college) but when it comes to what I read outside of school it is virtually 100% history books.

    Exactly the same for me, except the "various other ancient histories" becomes the Greek language and history.

    Language/Literature related. English was the only subject I ever had any real enthusiasm for.

    History, not surprising that its the dominant favorite here. For some reason all of my history teachers have all been male and have all been my most memorable and favorite teachers.

    Yeah now that I think about it, it was pretty dumb to think history wouldn't dominate.

    My choice was business/politics because I think economics/finance is very interesting and I intend to become an investment banker.

    Tie between Business/Politics and History. I voted Business/Politics, because I (correctly) presumed it would get less votes.

    Science for me, although it depends a lot on the teacher. (In fact, science probably depends on the teacher more than any other subject.)

    Why? Well, that's like asking why my favorite ice cream flavor is chocolate. I don't really know; I just think science is interesting.

    I think history depends a lot on the teacher. Probably all subjects do to a certain degree, but I think math depends the least on the teacher.

    This trimester, my history teacher is a boring idiot who is literally counting the days until he can retire (on the chalkboard). All we do is fill in the blank worksheets and notes. His class is my least favorite.

    Last trimester I had a young guy who actually enjoyed teaching history and was enthiusiastic in his methods. His class was my favorite.

    Bad prediction. This is a CFC Forum, remember?

    Anyeway, I like Math with Science a close second.

    History of course. I plan to be a politician someday, and there is no better way to prepare for the future, than by learning from the past.

    History is the only subject I still study these days. Nothing better for my taste.

    I voted math, but I really think they are tied.
