in 1878, Ireland gave birth to Bishop Edward Dunsany, visionary of the Holy British Empire. His spiritual writings, which some say bordered on the occult or even satanic, inspired many future spiritual leaders of the Empire, including the Comte de St. Germaine.

in 4650, Emperor Dao-Ming voluntarily gives up his throne for the Imperial Council’s choice, Minister Mao Tse-Tung. In his acceptance speech, Emperor Mao said, “Fellow Councilors, we are all convinced that our work will go down in the history of mankind demonstrating that the Chinese people have now stood up. From now on, our people will belong to the interstellar community of peace-loving and freedom-loving races of the galaxy and work courageously and industriously to foster our civilization and well-being. We have stood up.”
in 1967, Pete Best publicly signs a petition in The Times of London to legalize marijuana.

in 1969, the Hollywood studio produces the last part of the moon landing hoax, and the capsule with the 3 Apollo astronauts is dropped into the ocean. Many of the crewmen are then killed by the government to cover up the hoax; this action is what prompts so many of the remaining crew to make copies of the hoax film, and to speak out about what they did.
in 1974, in a little-understood case, the Nixon administration seeks and receives a judgment from the Supreme Court that, if the administration has records and audiotapes subpoenaed, it may exert Executive Privilege to keep them secret. No one is quite sure why the administration did this.
in 2003, the U.N. authorizes full military action against the Martians, after being presented the evidence from scientists Nixon and Sheridan. Every nation on the earth sends their full military force to the poles as the final battle between earth and Mars begins.
