So today is the 9th of November...
« on: 09 Nov 2019, 10:49 »
The 30 year anniversary of the fall of the Berlin wall has been all over the news, but it's not the only big historical event that's happened in Germany on this date; https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/November_9_in_German_history

So I gotta ask, what's the deal with Germans and tearing things up on November 9 of all days?  (roll)

It is also the day America started tearing up its Constitution...

"November 9, when Trump's 2016 presidential win was announced."

While it is quite belated, I would also like to note that the 9th of November was the zenith of the Stockholm Bloodbath of 1520. Also in regards of peculiar co-incidences, every time that I have visited that city, I have been approached by tourists, wanting to know some intriguing history from the city. Each time I have happily obliged, and the Bloodbath is a very reliable story to tell. It is quite fun to re-tell it, with fresh exaggerations each time.

Early November also saw the start of the October Revolution in Russia, one could note, with the Winter Palace seized on the 8th of November.

The month of November seems to be a quite common time for excitements and upheavals, I would say. It is a month out for blood. Although I ought not to irritate it yet, with a week of potential mischief remaining.

Don't worry, I think we're safe now... ...for this year!
