    2. I recognize this from Breaking Bad. The 'precursor' is a chemical used to make meth. A 'score', in this case, is something you got by stealing. A 'big score' is a good result, especially from crime. 'Wind up' = 'end up'. To 'step on somebody's toes' is to interfere with somebody's business, sometimes unintentionally, sometimes intentionally. So, by stealing that much chemical and making that much meth, the thieves will end up interfering in the business of other drug dealers.

    2. It's been highly controversial whether history courses should be required for all students regardless of their field of study, or kept to solely history related major students. I'm in favor of the former opinion and the reason to substantiate my opinion will be expatiated in the subsequent paragraphs. For starters, I would like to point out the fact that the knowledge we have nowadays is accrued through the progress of history itself; conversely, the work and attainment are predicated on those of the predecessors, without whom we can never achieve what we have today. I am convinced that history class is not simply about the sheer retention of knowledge, but rather a reminder of contributions by precursors, who serve as trailblazers and even die as some. For instance, the field of Psychology, a subject that does not seem related to history whatsoever, is actually all about history. Each theory that has been developed and published has different historical backgrounds. Case in point, the experiment of learning theory was initially conducted by constantly terrifying a baby named Albert, which, in turn, left Albert with an indelible unpleasant memory for the rest of his life. Think about how that impacts a person's life for a second. Albert was used as a tool to provide us insights into the mystery of human behavior. I think it is ungrateful if we do not know the history at all. Taken together, I think that all students of whichever major should take history classes alike. Simple changes, but very well written! Good use of vocabulary
