Unlikely simultaneous historical events

A poster on Reddit asks: What are two events that took place in the same time in history but don’t seem like they would have?

Spain was still a fascist dictatorship when Microsoft was founded.

There were no classes in calculus in Harvard’s curriculum for the first few years because calculus hadn’t been discovered yet.

Two empires [Roman & Ottoman] spanned the entire gap from Jesus to Babe Ruth.

When the pyramids were being built, there were still woolly mammoths.

The last use of the guillotine was in France the same year Star Wars came out.

Oxford University was over 300 years old when the Aztec Empire was founded.

When pilgrims were landing on Plymouth Rock, you could already visit what is now Santa Fe, New Mexico to stay at a hotel, eat at a restaurant and buy Native American silver.

The first wagon train of the Oregon Trail heads out the same year the fax machine is invented.

Nintendo was formed the same year Van Gogh painted Starry Night.

Cleopatra (the last Pharaoh of Egypt) lived closer to the moon landings than she did to the building of the Pyramids of Giza.

When Kublai Khan became the Mongol Emperor, the first humans were setting foot on New Zealand.

"Yes, I saw Twilight — my granddaughter made me watch it, she said it was the greatest vampire film ever. After the ‘film’ was over I wanted to smack her across her head with my shoe, but I do not want a (tell-all) book called Grannie Dearest written on me when I die. So instead I gave her a DVD of Murnau’s 1922 masterpiece Nosferatu and told her, "Now that’s a vampire film!" And that goes for all of you! Watch Nosferatu instead!"

I crave intimacy but I get confused and uncomfortable when I’m shown even the slightest bit of attention or affection.

I think every show that reaches it’s 200th episode (cough cm cough) should follow in stargate’s foosteps. They literally made an episode of different crazy au’s:

  • puppet au
  • zombie apocalypse au
  • young edgy teenage team au
  • wizard of oz au
  • star trek au
  • wedding au

The cm team in a zombie apocalypse? Anderson getting chewed on my zombies in the background?

Penelop garcia and dorothy with rossi as the tinman 

who doesn’t want that?

I would like to thank the camera man for filming this at this particular angle.

janeway just said the ship had a yoyo craze

and i’m now imagining janeway and chakotay having yoyo wars 

and naomi telling seven to try because it’s fun

and tom trying to impress b’elanna with his yoyo skills and harry trying to impress whoever he’s crushing on this week

then tuvok takes a yoyo and destroys them all with his perfect form

why is it that every show has to have a boxing episode?

I hate boxing episodes

why does voyager of all shows have a boxing episode?????
