So the Battle of Hastings re-occurred on 14th October 1066, approximately 10 km (6 ¼ miles) northwest of Hastings.

Maybe it was re-enactment, since the Americans arrived?
Don’t look at me like that, I read that somewhere on the Internet ( ;) ) so it must be true.

(Someone just forgot to wind their calendar.  That happens all the time).

Louisiana Highway 1067 (LA 1067) is a state highway in Louisiana that servesTangipahoa Parish. It spans 3.5 miles (5.6 km) in a southwest to northeast direction. It is known locally as Old Covington Highway, a designation which includes both the state-maintained LA 1067 and the locally maintained and unnumbered stretch on the same trajectory between LA 3158 (Airport Road) and US 51Business in Hammond. The length of all of Old Covington Highway (both the unnumbered stretch and LA 1067 continuously) is exactly 6.0 miles (9.7 km).

1068 Wallace was an Atlantic Giant pumpkin grown by Ron Wallace in 2003, named after its weight in pounds. It was not the biggest pumpkin of its kind, since the world record is held by 434 pounds heavier monster of a pumpkin.

In 1069, King William of England reacted to rebellions from his subjects by riding through the north of England with his army, destroying farms, cattle and crops, resulting in the deaths of some 100 000 people from starvation and winter cold.

His illegitimate birth wasn't the only reason he was known as 'William the B******d!'

Because you’d probably shoot yourself in the foot :D At least that’s what everyone always told me.


Rule no. 1072 from thatonerule.com:
Don’t be afraid to change.
You may lose something good but you may gain something even better.

On the other hand, "you may" is not the same as "you will" but let's not nitpick now.

Okay, I just googled 1073 and copied out an amusing piece about a microphone preamp(don't ask!), then I thought it would be fun to add a dancing smiley. I went to Photobucket and my computer started to make a loud grinding noise and then coughed up a notice informing me that Internet Explorer had blocked the page 'to protect my computer' .............. what the?

So 1073? The number of mini-tantrums I've had this year that are computer-related :angry:

In 1074, Gregory VII succeeded Alexander II to become the 155th Pope.

Edit: Ooops, no, that was in 1073.

Oh well, in 1074 Gregory VII celebrated his first anniversary as the guy with the funny hat, :whistle: :yes:

To be honest, if the poster is an example of the work being shown I'm not going to bother going.

The SNCAC NC.1080 was a prototype single-seat carrier-based fighter aircraft first flown on 29 July 1949. Development was discontinued following an unexplained accident on 10 April 1950, and the contest, for which the design was intended, was eventually rendered moot when the Aéronavale adopted the de Havilland Sea Venom in 1952.
