That's true, but I said what I did with respect to what has been experienced so far of the 21st century - of course there could be a far more influential historical event later in this century, but we do not know of that yet.

For those of you that have already forgotten, please re-read.

http://www.historum.com/forum-feedba...esolution.html

This is the relevant bit here, "Going forward therefore, we can no longer allow discussion of any events that occurred after 31st December 1991, and regret attempts to create any such threads will be summarily deleted. However, this still leaves several millennia of available subject matter to talk about and discuss."

This thread will remain locked, any future threads that contravene the above will be deleted.
