45 So Nelson Mandela was a great man, a credit so all South Africans, and I think the Long Walk to Freedom, and The Usual suspects are the 2 movies with some of the best endings, so dramatic and cool. But Also I get annoyed when people talk of the Mandela effect. Apparently some people claim that when Mandela was released in the 1990s, that they thought he had been murdered during the Apartheid regime in a police HQ in the 1980s, and a few people claim this, so some take their memory as a fact. So some claim this is a slip in the Matrix or proof of different dimensions inter relating. I say it is just that the general public are not as knowledgeable about current affairs as some claim, and that actually those people were remembering the murder of a other anti apartheid leader. Just like how someone in Liverpool once told me you can get a ferry to Scotland, (They meant Ireland) and someone else once told me, their neighbour thought Tony Blair, the PM, whose seat was in Geordieland, was their MP, when they lived in Wales. I am sure they just confused him with the famous other anti apartheid campaigner, of the era, who was put in custody, what was that man who was killed in 1977's name. initials SB.

49 Identity in politics has a effect, such as how Southern US states vote markedly different in percentage terms to Northern US states, and those Northern US states vote differently as of their identities. Well in Britain, Wales and Scotland have voted differently to their English allies in many elections, and industrial areas vote differently to their rural areas. All sorts of things, industrial history, class history, level of immigrations from different parts of the British Isles and the world affect these political maps. In England which of these would be the bigger indicator of what party a whole constituency would vote for in the 2017 and 2019 UK elections. The fact a constituency is urban or rural or the fact it was led by Cornwall, or the Vikings or the Saxon kingdoms in the Dark Ages.
50 Harold WIlson boasted that England won the world Cup in 1966 under Labour.

66 In 2020 The USA was struck by Covid, after it spread from a source in Asia,China, and I am not blaming them by the way, to Europe, then spread strongly in New York, the major port of entry to the USA, before spreading rampantly across the USA. In the
19th Century a disease started off again in a country in Asia, India, and I am not blaming them either, spread to Europe, and just like Covid, was feared with dread that it would arrive, With just like for Covid, there being calls for restrictions on entries to the country, or a watch. (And then after reaching New York the completely major port of entry to the USA spread over time across the USA). With just like then, the rich often leaving the major cities, and being better protected as of their greater resources. and the poorer being more badly affected, and disputes about the legitimacy of doctors choices, being chanted by some campaigners.

72 One thing I do not like is when people as if say, one starling makes a summer kind of coincidences. Like when in the UK, since 1945, Labour or the Tories have won every election, and a election is once every 4 or 5 years. So one party wins a election, in 1992, then a other in 1997, and then for effect someone says, well the so and so will be feeling unconfident about winning in this 2001 election, as they have not won one since the early 1990s, but considering there was only 1 election in between the truth is there was only 1 attempt. And it happens in rugby, in the 6 nations, Scotland may go 3 seasons of not beating Ireland at Dublin, and then it is 6 years since they last won there, well it is hardly that amazing to lose there away from home, so not that big a deal, especially if Ireland have been ranked higher than Scotland for all that time, it is extra not that amazing. Yes 30 years is bad, and any number is annoying, like Scotland went v England, at Twickenham, or Aberdeen at Ibrox, (It made the eventual wins all the sweter, although winning sooner would have been even more fun) but even that can be explained as on the other hand Scotland have not lost to certain teams at Murrayfield for ages, and Aberdeen have had good records of not losing streaks, lasting v Dundee and Killie, and Killie and Dundee have good records of not losing v some teams. But its not so amazing if only 1 go, and same in Scottish football, for Rangrs, Celtic Aberdeen runs, people making more out of a mole hill, as if it is everything. So a question, since 1945 what is the shortest amount of time a party has been able to say it has not won a election since, after losing the most recent election. The same also occurs in USA.
73 What do Labour's election result in 1951, Edward Heath's Tories in 1974 February election, Al Gore's in 2000, and Hilary Clinton's in 2016 have in common. Remember in most election as of maths, the party that wins the most votes normally wins the election, usually a pretty sensible way of organising democracies.

Nova Scotia meanwhile had referendums in 1929 and 2004, what were these referendums on, either a independence and devolution, or B, Sunday shopping and prohibitionism and that kind of thing to do with alcohol.
83 So Wales is a country of the the British Isles, and also Europe, but in what part of England is the village of Wales in, either South East England, or Yorkshire, or North East England,
84 The Mayans apparently had wars fought called the Axe Wars, kind of smaller scale wars between their city states, what was the name of the wars of a larger scale, that George Lucas may have been pretty intrigued by.
85 In Legend a founder of Rome was Romulus, with Remus, and of course Constantine made Constantinople, Byzantium, Istanbul the capital of the Roman Emperor, what was the name coincidently I dont need the numerical number just the main name for him, in the 21st Century history books for the last emperor of Byzantium when it was conquerred by the Ottomans.
86 Poland and Monaco have similar flags, a red and also a white horizontal stripe, one has red on top one red at bottom, which of these lands does Indonesia which also does this have a most similar one to.

89 Scotland and Russia both have similar flags, that represent them at some event the which saint is this flag named after, not the main Russia or even the old Soviet flag, I mean the other,
90 Catalonia, England and Genoa each have a flag with a cross on, of which saint,
91 Which patron saint of Scotland, England or Wales is the only one almost certainly born in Britain,
92 So Prussia at times was not considered as German a state in the 18th Century as other parts, but united Germany, in the 19th Century, and Macedonia was so for ancient Greece, but united it under Alexander the Great, in a way, what was the name for the 18th Century Prussian king, commonly labeled "The great"
93 Which US TV show, of the late 1990s to 2020s and maybe longer, in clips, seems to have predicted way before it was a logically very likely thing, the election of Donald Trump as President, the radical change in Russian relations with the west for the 2020s, and much more. Such as a doughnut shaped universe, the shard, and the Siegfried and Roy Tiger attack, Though the last one maybe its not that unlikely. Plus that Aussie episode where the Aussie PM is in a pub, is told off by a voter, or not, he is just in a pub, has had a couple of times where a voter was amazingly mundane with them, like the 2020s one told to get off a lawn friendlily. by a voter, during his impromptu speech,

18 Jung and Yeats, Ok maybe Collective unconscious and great mind, are different theories, but they are quite similar from a simplistic misinterpretation by me. I am not supporting either theory, or opposing, just nice they had similar thoughts. Also lots of people fear doom is about to occur, and nothing happens, so maybe they were just lucky on that, well unlucky really, whatever the case, I am not a expert at all on either. so excuse my misssunderstanding. I mean I miss spell Jung as a psychatrist, so have left it like that unspellchecked.
19 Both times, there were leaders of the 2 main parties with the same name, I mean as in John, and Harold, both Harold's and both John's were leaders at the same time.
20 Charlie Higgson and Paul Whitehouse, I remember the fact on QI. It was not Harry Enfield as I once thought.
21 They has the same first name, James, and the term for that used as their name, when they were in office as leader at the same time, of their countries.
22 Both called Tony or Anthony,
23 They had the same surname, and were managers at the same time,
24 They were candidates in leadership elections, with the same first name,
25, yes, in 1974 and 1990, West Germany won, in 1970 and 1994 Brazil did, we all know England did in 1966, but no, it was France in 1998, and then back ti a last mirroring, Brazil had in 1962, and did in 2002. For the rest of that mirroring it did not occur, indeed Italy 2006, and Brazil 1958, West Germany 1954, and Spain 2010, plus Uruguay 1950 and Germany 2014, then nobody in 1946, and France 2018 did not fit with the mirroring.
26 Aberdeen won the Scottish league title in 1955 and 1985, but were runners up, still a OK position in historical terms for Aberdeen, in 2015. There is one other important year, that is for the Back to the Future 3, and 1885. Well that was the year that Arbroath beat Aberdeen's cricket team, Bon Accord 36 nil in the Scottish Cup. With on the same day Dundee Harp beat Aberdeen Rovers 35 to nil. I believe Aberdeen was late to football, being further from the industrial central belt, which is why Aberdeen sides had such bad scores that day. Still those results are record wins in Scottish football record books. Aberdeen FC have restored Aberdeen's football reputation though many a time since.
27 Constantinople, or Byzantium, or Istanbul. There were other teams before, the Reds and Whites, (Hang on Glasweigan football team Third Lanark played in red) but they merged into the greens and whites, (Hang on Queens Park play in White, plus black, so that is a similar thing as well. Though Partick Thistle play in Yellow and red, so then again that is red, so interesting there. Really though it is not that similar other than they both have blues and greens, and sport. and there is a rivalry, but even the fierce Old Firm, rivalry looks sedate compared to the Nika Riots, happily.
28 The 19th Century 1820 by a Russian mission.
29 The Dogon People of Mali. It is not certain though, many have said the evidence is more spurious than many say.

44 They were all called Konigsberg, The Polish for the Baltic city's name was Krolewiec. Also Klimkovice, and Nova Bana, in Czechia, and Slovakia, had the title Konigsberg, as part of their names, or as their German names. As too Chojna in Poland. Plus Konsberg in Norway has it as it's German label.There is still a place called Konigsberg in Bayern. which is in Bavaria Germany itself. Plus a mountain Slovakia, Kráľova hoľa, has it as it's German name.
45 Steve Biko,
46 New, and Nova.
48 The Man from Uncle.
49 I looked it up and the urban rural divide is a much bigger factor. I dont really think there is much of a dark ages ethnic balance factor at all really. Unless you tried really hard to look, but I think that would be stretching the point. Though I think areas with high Celtic mostly Irish migration were voting stronger for Labour in the 20th Century, but of course they did as Labour were more seen by many as for poorer people, than the Tories, and if you are a immigrant you are more likely to have less money than the place you moved to, so that was less ethnic, than financial. There could be some dark ages effect, but I dont think there is. Indeed Cornwall seems almost as Tory as South East England's rural areas. So I think the biggest marker politically in Britain is Industrial history and it's effects. Nationalism comes a lot into play in Scotland Wales and Northern Ireland, as how identity is so important. The 1997 map may indicate a Dark Ages effect, but that is likely cherry picking and anyway Cumbria was led by Scotland and it was Tory in 1997, so I think again it is not a factor. Then again South West Herefordshire went to the Lib Dems, I mean maybe it shows it had a mnute influence but the bigger effect was what happened in term of migration in the Industrial Revolution and such like. And to be fair Cumbria was quite Labour for a large in many parts rural county place in 1997. It was a nice thing to research but is not the case.
50 No, of course not, Though I bet you could make up a conspiracy theory of JFK democrats helping Celtic in the 1960s and Aberdeen being helped as the Tories were in Power, and maybe were less Glasgow linked in the 1980s. But then again you could write it as a deranged way of proving conspsiracy tteories can be invented about everything. As a means of proving conspsiracy theories are wrong. Of course there may be some political influence but 99 percent is about the teams, and their fortune, and possibly the city itself.
51 Vienna, not amazing when you consider it was one of the cities of a great European Empire at the time, Though it was amazing as a coincidence really. Einstein was based in Prague in 1912 and Zurich, And he did do a lecture there in Vienna in 1913. Then again it was a major city like Paris, Moscow, or London, if anything as it had been the major city of it's territories for so long maybe slightly above Madrid and Rome as they were for Madrid less centrifugal, and for Rome, it had only quite recently again become the centre of all Italy, in some ways. I mean Vienna had been the official boss of some of Northern Italy quite recently before the Italian unification. But it is amazing really. Lenin also visited Vienna in 1913 and printed anti Tsar leaflets apparently. Karl Steinhart a later leader of the Austrian Communist Party arrived in Vienna in 1913 as well, lots of other people arrived in Vienna in 1913, according to my google searches like some actors and actresses.

72 Answer Labour in early 1950s. They won an election, the majority was not big enough so they held another a year later, which they lost, so the next election was only 4 years later, or 5 or so after the election before last. PS I am talking in terms of seat totals, not votes in this sense, though votes do count.
73 The party that won the most votes finished seconds as of the way the electoral college, and or the constituency votes stacked up. Some say unfair, some say, hey they knew the rules.

79 It was 19:45 quarter to eight, so the year world war two ended, and there was a lot of jingoistic chatter about world war two in the tabloids, so some made a joke about it being the year World War Two ended, Some thought that was a good joke, some that it was remarking on a terrible chapter of history, in the most beside the point jingoistic way possible. But then again, its interesting. I mean who wouldnt notice a thing like that after a while, so a cool thing to notice, but Germany and Britain including England were buddies in the 1990s as of being 2 peaceful liberal democracies, including their people,
80 Amazingly only RFK of those key figures was not in Dallas that day.

85 Constantine. Anyway here is my list of who has the best right to claim to be the successors of Rome.
1 Italy as the Kingdom and now the Republic, 2 Rome councils today, 3 Constantinople / Istanbul Council, today 4 The Vatican, including the Papal States, 5 Turkey, 6 Constantinople when it finished, 6 European Union 7 United States, 8 Moscow, 9 Russian Federation 10 Ottomans, 11 Orthodox Church, 12 Greece, 21 Germany - Holy Roman Empire 22 France as it was in a way, 23 United Nations, 24 Salmeniko Castle, 24 Avignon, 26 Ravenna 27 Castel dell'Ovo, 28 Ostrogoths, 29 Lombards, 30 Napoleon, 31 Spain, 32 Britain 33 Avingon, 34 Ravenna, 35 Other leaders who claimed to be leaders of Italy. 36 Romania, 37 Bulgaria, 38 Lots of other empires, 39 Places called Rome in the USA, 40 People who claim not be it, including people who stand on the spot in Rome where the guide says is where the emperors were crowned, and then imagine this means they are it. Like I did. 41 All other people who know of Rome, 42 People who have never heard of Rome etc 43 Aliens, if they exist, 44 Other aliens, 45 people of places before Rome founded, ,

25 Two, (Not that similar, but quite for such a important term)
26 The first means the hill, the second describes or is the name of a high point, maybe a mountain or peak, in Portugal, though they both describe higher places, so like a similar root I would guess to the term altitude though maybe they are not exactly the same word. Though I can not think of a term saying altitude in that way in English really. Altitude is too scientific a term and vague a term to normally describe a place by a place name with the word Altitude.

Lallans, Doric and Scots are used in some sense for this language though have specific definitions for some, but Scots is a acceptable term for all Scottish versions of the English language. Gaelic influenced it a tiny bit. Similar to how Pictish may have just influenced Gaelic a tiny bit.
