...oh dear lord. Excuse me, does anyone else in here realise that these dates are purely arbitrary, and mean nothing? Here look I'll input a random
date into google right now: November 9th, 1876: Oh look that was the day that the Meiji Restoration in Japan started, well that inevitably lead us to
the Japanese Empire now didn't it? Wouldn't you say that was a major world event too?
Look, important things happen somewhere in the world every day, trust me I'm a journalist. Wouldn't, I don't know, the day the Shah left Iran
(January 16th, 1979) or the day Ruhollah Khomeini returned to Iran (February 1st, 1979) matter more? Why also was September 17th 2001 mentioned but
not September 11th? Honestly 9-17-01 wasn't that big a deal, at all. The stock exchange had been in business before 9-11 and it had to start up
again sometime after for corporate exchange to continue. Why not instead state the date the of the first stock exchange in New York? (May 17th, 1792)
or the day the current exchange opened? (April 22nd, 1903)
Seriously, it's quite a reach to make some grand connections based on such figures and doesn't really make any rational sense. Or am I the only one
that sees that here?
