“Unlikely simultaneous historical events” ⇒

Kottke linked to an awesome Reddit thread about historical events that, though hard to believe, happened during the same time.

For instance, Kottke points out this one: “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.” That absolutely blows my mind. History is awesome.
