What if history was just homework?

What if some kid was doing his homework and randomly came across these forums and would make a thread topic asking the question for the answer to his history homework?

He would probably get an accurate and informed answer but would be given an F.

For example, once I was asked when ww2 started. 1937, of course, because it was the Japanese invasion of China. I got it wrong.

Yeah technically speaking the war hadn't turned into a world war yet, it was quite possibly a multi-regional war for different reasons, but then alliances and synchronization made it a world war at the point that it was realized everything was at stake. Total war became the outcome of World War II, when natsoc Germany invaded Poland, there were enough conflicts in different places with alliances between aggressor nations to declare it a World War.

Lol no its 1939, the Japanese Invasion of China was a different war that just so happened to continue into the same time WW2 started.

The second sino-japanese war was more bloody than the european conflict. That makes it more important.

I disagree. The longterm effects of China and Japan going to war was the East being split between democracy and communism. The longterm effects of Britain and Germany going to war was Europe being split between democracy and communism, the iron curtain, the acceptance of democracy as the ideology of the west, the destruction of Fascism, the end of the colonial empires, and the entire Cold War.
