CRAPOLA! I really thought I had it when I saw a "disinfo post for the 13th Tipping Point. Turned out to be on Global Warming. and I read the whole darn story just to see if there might be a mention of anything in the pretext of our search.

Being my usual anal-retentive self, I began researching the 1955. While it is not nearly as famous as an earlier Browning design, the 1911 (which is known by most as the iconic ".45 Automatic") it does have some interesting claims to fame. The 1955 was a re-release of an earlier design, the 1910, which itself was an earlier version of what evolved into the 1911. And the tiny Browning 1910 was the handgun used to assassinate Archduke Franz Ferdinand in 1914, an event which sparked off the First World War.

Author and television host James Burke, through his PBS shows such as Connections and The Day the Universe Changed, was always taking his viewers down a long contorted path of history to show how inventions and events were improbably linked together. And so shall I. WWI lead to the collapse of Germany under the leadership of Kaiser Wilhelm II. The collapse of Germany lead to the rise of the Nazi party and of Adolph Hitler. This lead to WWII (which unlike WWI really was a global conflict). And WWII lead to the Atomic Age.

So you could argue that 1914 was a tipping point in history, and that the assassination of an archduke with a Browning 1910 Pocket Pistol led to the Atomic Age



1914-1910 = 4...but...thats a major stretch.

Archduke Franz Ferdinand and Duchess Sophie von Chotkova were killed by Gavrilo Princip. Several members of the Black Hand group in Sarajevo were arrested and interrogated by the Austrian authorities. Under extreme questioning some of the men claimed that three members from Serbia, Milan Ciganovic, Dragutin Dimitrijevic and Voja Tankosic, had organised the plot.

the three at the bottom + Gavrilo who actually killed him, thats 4 people, ive kinda been going at this for awhile, so whenever the number 4 shows up well you get the point, sorry if this has alread been posted.

Nah tonight me and my roomies just kicked back and hung out.

I'm not much of a drinker. Except on Mardi Gras. And when girls want me to come drink. And on Thursdays. And on Saturdays. Some Fridays as well.

I've been looking at Archduke Franz Ferdinand i've got a hunch he's the Ferdinand were looking for. His assassination sparked off ww1 and he was heir to the Hapsburg empire. I just cant find any holy rule that preceded him by 4...pulling my hair out here... hows everyone else coming along?

Wow, we're really cooking now.

[hears cricket and frog noise in the background]

The book, "The Tipping Point", by Malcom Gladwell describes a tipping point as "social epidemics", or sudden and often chaotic changes from one state to another.

Anyone ever read it? ... in case, by a longshot, the answer is mentioned in there somewhere?

Along those lines, a holy rule was the tipping point for a sudden change in history.

So... some religious (rule, event, decree) occurred 4 'somethings' prior to someone named Ferdinand. Ferdinand, as used this clue, should also refer to an event (eg. his birth, his death, etc.) Perhaps the next hint will reveal this, because we still don’t have enough to go on here.

I gave up, Ive come to the conclusion we probably have already seen the answer, but have yet to piece it together because we cant seem to make the connection. The riddles are too broad for me to get a specific answer.

I strongly believe this next clue is connected to Ferdinand V of Spain. He was called Ferdinand the Catholic and was the grandfather of the Holy Roman Emperor Charles V.


Ferdinand V and Isabella I

Ferdinand V, called The Catholic (1452-1516), King of Castile (1474-1504); as Ferdinand II he was also King of Sicily (1468-1516) and of Aragón (1479-1516); as Ferdinand III, King of Naples (1504-1516). He was the son of King John II of Aragón.

[...]

Because his daughter Joanna the Mad became insane after the death of Isabella, Ferdinand assumed the regency of Castile in 1506. He joined the League of Cambrai against the republic of Venice in 1508, and conquered Oran and Tripoli on the North African coast in 1509. He annexed the kingdom of Navarre in 1512, thereby extending the borders of Spain from the Pyrenees to the Rock of Gibraltar. Ferdinand was in many ways a competent ruler. His reign, however, was characterized by an insatiable thirst for power, and he was both cruel and perfidious. He was succeeded by his grandson Charles (Holy Roman Emperor Charles V).

Since he was a part of the League of Cambrai it ties in nicely with one of the previous questions regarding Venice.
