    Jeanne d'Arc Sinclair, Quebecoise student from Montréal, after her boyfriend and leader of the "Vers le Québec" got the support from the Crees and riots happened in British Columbia to join the Cascadian Federation and in Nunavut to join the Kingdom of Greenland and Denmark. The government, who fled to Windsor after riots in Ottawa against the social inequalities, could only accept the independance of the Quebecoise Federation.

    A translated comment as the Emperor of China was dealing with war against the British and Japanese Empires. The Imperial Secretary was their new term for govrnor of Korea as a vassal. The war came to a white peace when the USA got involved on China's side.

    Sir Robert Walpole in 1738, British Prime Minister sent to arbitrate a dispute between the two great powers in Siberia, Russia and Mongolia. The treaty of Ürümqi ruled mostly in favour of the Mongol claims, as they claimed that under the great khans, they had ruled these lands long before any Russians had. In exchange, Russia was guaranteed total control of the Caspian Sea (Although Persia disputed this) and was given 5 million Yuans as compensation by the Mongols. The treaty helped to secure peace in the area for over a hundred years, until Mongol power began to weaken and Russia saw the opportunity to invade, breaking the treaty and triggering the Siberian War of 1844-49.

    “The war was intense to be sure, but to see not one, but three of Europe’s great cities completely abandoned within a few months of the start of the fighting showed how brutal it truly was, and how afraid people were of the armies marching all over the continent. Some are comparing it to the end of the world.”

    A popular quote from general Erwin Rommel's "Im Belagerungszustand"("Under Siege"), a biographical work describing his experience during the Second Great War , following the coordinate attack by the French National State and the Soviet Union against the German Empire Austria-Hungary
    The quote refers to the three cities of Mainz, Budapest and Warsaw: while in the first two cases the depopulation was caused by the escape of most of the local population , Warsaw was virtually reduced to a ghost town thanks to Stalin's directive to "punish the traitors of the world revolution and their zionists masters"
    The turning point of the war happened two years later when the american president Huey Long abbandoned his isolazionist stance and declared war on both France and Russia

    A infamous quote, supposedly, from Shakespeare's science-fiction tragedy play 'Gollum among us'. Historians have found references to a play that may have been named with the spelling 'Gollum among us', but no historian actually found a copy of the play that was identical,or could be declared the original. One version focused on buildings, another was themed around law, a third version was lost in the Fort Nox holocaust. Liva Historia!

    A dialogue exchange of a podcast reviewing the mixed Spiderverse film. While financially successful, it got mixed reviews for its handling of Spiderman lore and criticisms over the cultural dominance of Ultimate Spider-Man over the original one.

    Last known words of Dom Lázaro Venturini, claimant to the defunct Brazilian throne as Head of the House of Venturini. He was infamously known for becoming senile and somewhat lewd in his old age, using a lot of phrases with double meaning.

    Excerpt from One September Morning, a 2014 French political film by Robert Guédiguian which depicts the events of the 1993 Russian Constitutional Crisis. In the quoted scene, President Boris Yeltsin is confronted by a group of disloyal military officers led by the former Soviet Marshal Sergey Akhromeyev (at that time officially working as an advisor to the Russian Minister of Defense) shortly after Yeltsin ordered the military to dismantle the Russian Parliament (a.k.a.: the Supreme Soviet of Russia, incorrectly labeled throught the movie as the “Soviet Senate”), with Marshal Akhromeyev mocking Yeltsin by sarcastically referring to him by titles like “consul” and “lord”.

    The Crisis would end with Yeltsin’s arrest, the return of the Communist Party to the forefront of the country’s politics and the position of President of the Russian Federative Republic becoming a ceremonial role with all the power being in the hands of the Chairman of the Supreme Soviet.

    When the Money comes matching home again,
    (Hoora, Hoora!)
    We’ll give it a hardy welcome then
    (Hoora, Hoora!)

    The men, they’ll be my property
    If they don’t work I’ll shoot through their knee
    And we’ll all feel great when Money comes marching home

    Anarchy and the N.A.P.
    (Hoora, Hoora!)
    Will guarantee my liberty
    (Hoora, Hoora!)

    Mexicans I will underpay
    With roses they will strew the way
    And we’ll all feel great when Money comes marching home

    Get the hell of me property!
    (Hoora, Hoora!)
    Get a taste of me M60!
    (Hoora, Hoora!)

    My legal wrath is ready now
    To place a bullet in your brow
    And we’ll all feel great when Money comes marching home

    No governments and no Archdukes
    (Hoora, Hoora!)
    Just recreational McNukes
    (Hoora, Hoora!)

    And let each one never pay a tax
    That makes the statist heart relax
    And we’ll all feel great when Money comes marching home

    And we’ll all feel great when Money comes marching home

    And we’ll all feel great when Money comes marching home


    (In case anyone is wondering, the song is from here.)

    Lyrics from "When Money Comes Marching Home", a song that was created as part of a Saturday Night Live sketch lampooning the 2016 Republican National Convention, where Rand Paul was formally nominated for President, after a surprising primaries that were described as "the collapse of the Old Establishment", "a takeover of the Party by its Libertarian Wing" and "the weirdest primaries since the Democratic ones in 2000, when Vicepresident Al Gore was nearly defeated by Donald Trump."

    Napoleon VI of the European Empire commenting on the latest riots to rip through the ancient city. The 'Old Log' in question was a somewhat archaic French military term for a type of bombing campaign based off of the first aeroplanes used in military bombing campaigns, they were called 'Old Log(s)' and 'Emperor(s)'.

    Queer, trans- and intersexual people adopted (pseudo-)Zoroastrianism in Iran as a form of protest and, when the regime liberalised and turned into a capitalist minarchist one, Mithrasmas (especially: Mithrasmas festivities in Qom) became one of the most commercialised and hyped festivities that the world ever saw

    Excerpt from The Day After Tomorrow is Today, a 2014 documental made by Former U.S. Vicepresident Al Gore in his South American exile. The documental, (that played with the name of a prophetic 2004 movie called The Day After Tomorrow) described through videos, interviews and graphics, how climate change helped develop a massive storm system in the northern hemisphere, which splitted into three gigantic hurricane-like superstorms above Canada, Scotland, and Siberia, that pulled frozen air from the upper troposphere into their center, flash-freezing anything caught in their eyes with temperatures below −150 degrees Fahrenheit (-101 degrees Celsius): a phenomenon that was the cause of a new Ice Age and collapsed the societies of all countries north of the equator. This specific quote is from one of videos used in the documental: one the last video messages sent from New York City, before the climatic conditions in the northern hemisphere worsened, reaching critical levels and making the former East Coast of the United States unhospitable to life.
