1827 FOCAL NODE TEST THREAD.
/horror/ is a repository of truth. That much is plain. What events in history, stem from this year. Also, sitting is history class: Is it as horrific as it sometimes feels? And if you think history is horror, well guess what, you are right! Most people had lives that were full of events and so forth, but their voices were not heard. And yet they assumed, in our day, that their grand children down the line, would have their say. Well, 20th Century is gone, and so can we see the roots of it, as we gaze into the "penseive" or "galadriel's mirror" of the past? People who knock wiki are mistaken; It is a fine tool if you know how to read it. I myself use the "date" pages a lot, it is not unlike a tree of knowledge in some ways. But is knowledge, fruit?
