in 480 BCE, Spartan soldiers hold out against seemingly impossible odds at Thermopylae, defeating a much larger Persian force by holding a narrow pass against them. This makes them the preeminent city of Greece, and their method of rule – military dictatorship – becomes the norm across all of Hellas.
in the Dreaming, the stories of Wandjina were painted on the Sacred Rock. Should the Pindanjaru need him again, they could come to the Rock and sing to him, and he would come back from the backbone of the night.
in 1678, the Manhattan tribe sold its island to Dutch settlers for a pittance. In 1758, the alien Mlosh assisted them in getting it back. This generated much ill will between the Dutch and the Mlosh, although the Dutch became willing citizens of the North American Confederation in 1800.
in 1323, the faithful put an end to the conflict with the Nipponese by using a bomb that harnessed the power of the sun itself; not even as big as an elephant, a single bomb destroyed an entire city of the infidels, forcing the Nipponese emperor to surrender to the will of Allah.
in 1968, actress Gillian Anderson was born in Chicago, Illinois. An accomplished performer on stage and television, she is best known for her work in the documentary series, The X-Files, which addressed the social problems of alien abduction and paranormal activity.
in 2000, He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named, much weakened after his battle with the Shining One, was overwhelmed by the forces of galactic justice, and banished from our dimension, forever… they believe.
in 2002, Pope Righteous I declares that a child born in Jesu, France, will be the antichrist, and orders that all children born in that city in that month should be put to the death. “God has decreed this, and we must obey the will of God,” he says to the shocked world.
in 2003, earth’s forces, led by Dr. Jacob Sheridan of Australia, smashed into the Martians waiting at the asteroid belt for them. The epic battle in space lasted for 2 days, as earth’s ships attempted to break through the Martian line and capture the much-needed ice in the asteroid belt to carry back to their parched planet.
