This is a little experiment I'm conducting. To prevent the results from becoming skewed I won't be divulging the nature of the test until it has been completed - then I will explain all. All I would like from the forum members here is that you answer the question below - briefly. In fact, only a date is required but if the date you have selected is rather obscure you may choose to explain what happened on that date in a sentence or two. QUESTION: What is the most important date in human history since the beginning of the 19th century? N.B Posters who recognise my avatar from other boards will likely know what this is all about, please don't spoil the experiment or take part in it as your answer could not be guaranteed to be impartial. I'll give a full accounting of this test once the thread appears 'spent' or has reached about 50 responses. Many thanks, Nic'
