In the year 67,

* Linus succeeds Saint Peter as pope.
* Vindex revolts, first in a series of revolts that lead to Nero's downfall.

My first thought at reading that was : Linus + Vindex = Linux!  So that was apparently the year that Linux was created.

Oh, 1069 so totally rocks, compared to 1067, lol (of course, as soon as this goes out, it'll then be 1070, OMG, what do I do? :shock:  :

He rides through the north of England with his army and burns houses, crops, cattle and land from York to Durham. Results in the deaths of over 100,000 people, mainly from starvation and winter cold.
    * William the Conqueror founds the Norman Selby Abbey
    * Abbad III al-Mutamid succeeds his father to the throne of Sevilla.
    * Queen Margaret of Scotland holds a conference at Malcome Tower in Dunfermline and attempts to force the Culdee Christian Church to observe Roman rites of Easter, marriage, Sabbaths and the Eucharist.
    * Wang Anshi implements financial reforms, including raising the salaries of officials to reduce corruption

621 A.D.

Events:
Byzantine Emperor Heraclius invades Persia
Muhammad visits heaven, in the Isra wal-Miraj
Suinthila succeeds Sisebut as king of the Visigoths.
May 28 - Battle of Hulao, Li Shimin defeats numerically superior army of Dou Jiande.
June 4 - Wang Shichong surrenders to Li Shimin following Dou Jiande's defeat.

Deaths:
Sisebut, king of the Visigoths.
Dou Jiande, warlord and opponent of Li Yuan
Wang Shichong, warlord and opponent of Li Yuan

I'm not sure what's cooler - to see the results of battles from "events" reflected under the "deaths" column, or that the Visgoths had a king called "Sissy-butt."

Given my current post count is in the 11,000 range, I went backwards.

12,000—11,000 BC
11,500 BC—10,000 BC: Wooden buildings in South America (Chile), first pottery vessels (Japan).
11,000 BC: First evidence of human settlement in Argentina.
11,000 BC: The Arlington Springs Man dies on the island of Santa Rosa, off the coast of California.
11,000 BC: Human remains deposited in caves which are now located off the coast of Yucatán.[11]

This is what you people get for not knowing what movie I'm thinking of. I start getting distracted with ancient threads that may still have some interest.

For those interested, CeeKay's post count puts him somewhere between Adam's testicles dropping to eating the apple.
