Paper topic

My cousin is a freshman in college and has an enormous thesis due for one of her gen ed. requirements. She said there are about 42 different sections of the class and they all have a different subject. Her section is doing the 1960's.

We're pretty close so I've been one of the first people she comes to when she has a problem. She doesn't know what to do for a topic. I mentioned all of the normal things... Kennedy assassination, vietnam protests, man on the moon, Bay of Pigs, Civil Rights movement, rioting, all that, but she said she wants to do something "original."

Marijuana jokes aside (for you smartasses out there) can you think of something "original" from the 1960s that would be good to write a large thesis on?

Is she really wanting to do something original or just something that hasn't been picked by any of the other students?

Some ideas are:
The race to space/the moon
Woodstock
RFK Assassination
MLK Assassination
Whatever happened to the cast of Laugh-In? ok, kidding....
Did Gatorade really help the Chiefs win SB IV like the commercial states?
How many licks does it REALLY take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop? Did we ever find out?

Ok..as you can see, I'm digressing a bit....

I think that's it. She's kind of stubborn like that. She wants fresh, because that will make her seem smart to other people.

Again, those are all on the list of possible topics and she says they're "boring." There's no real reasoning with her though, sadly.

I have always found it interesting how the arrival of guys like Wernher von Braun really kickstarted the space program and how that led to an accelerated awareness and emphasis on math and science education.

Then again, I'm a total effing nerd.
