What's Going On?

According to the Dux bed people, who apparently take of a very Leibnizian perspective on things, everything! I was listening to their ad on the radio this morning. The woman doing the pitch was talking about her grandmother having owned a Dux bed for 56 years now. "What was happening in 1952?" she asked. "Well, Alaska would not become a state for another seven years."

This presumably "happened" continually throughout the year, as the date of statehood became closer and closer. And, of course, the fall of the Roman Empire happened in 1952 as well, in terms of its date becoming more distant.

And so did every other event, past or future, all also happen in 1952. And every other year. History books are going to get really big. Or small, I'm not sure which.

  1. There's an old science fiction story about a well meaning, omnipotent fool and the worrier who detects his presence. "Let the people on that plane be safe since yesterday Somehow that worried him most of all."

    In the stage of the life, there are a lot of challenges we need to face. Of course it is in Tibia Gold. We have pressures, of course. If you want to release yourselves, try Tibia money, that will be helpful for you, I think. We can not do a lot of thing in one day, but we can do a thing well, right? So, we can buy Tibia coins for fun and also can do it well. If you like tibia gp, please come to buy Tibia Platinum.
