Post 1215

King John was compelled by his barons to sign Magna Carta on June 15 at Runnymede. Kind of a big deal...

It doesn’t matter. 2020 feels like the end of days anyway!

If I took my last post count and traced the number of days back in history I discovered that it took me to the 14th of May, 1959. On that day, a radio signal was bounced off the moon for the first time, being sent from Jodrell Bank to a radio telescope in the USA.

Well, it’s a way for us high-volume posters to join in!

I find that quite fascinating! And it’s one of the things about the UK that I find so incredibly interesting g - that things I’ve learned as history still have meaningful legal ramifications and relevance in the UK today. The history geek in me just gets all giddy inside thinking about that.

That’s a creative way to make this thread relevant to high-volume posters!

Taking my post count as 2554 prior to this I'll make it 2.5.54 so I'm wondering why the adults in my household are dashing around. Then I realise that they're preparing for my 1st birthday party in a couple of days.

Alternatively it's the year 2554 and the 200th anniversary of the human's successful battle against Skynet (hope I'm allowed to use this?) is being celebrated worldwide. Globally the humans have made huge efforts over the previous 2 centuries to re-construct the "old" world as told by survivals of previous generations and finally they've realised how much they now need to take care of it and the numerous surviving species in it.

In September, Switzerland became an independent country, by seceding (more or less) from the Holy Roman Empire.

They celebrated no doubt by making watches and secret bank accounts :shock:
