1178 BC: Odysseus returns home from the Trojan War, and signs a really big book deal.

73: Masada, a Jewish fortress, falls to the Romans after several months of siege, and daily Anti-Semitic editorials in the New York Times.

2003: Greece is admitted to the European Union… immediately starts working to bankrupt it.
