Timeline of the World
A list of events from around the world, this article aims to give some indication of what was going on within different countries during a same period.
Given that time passes in a rather bizarre way, Earth's timeline is subject to major quirks of logic, paradoxes and temporal anomalies in apparent accordance with the theory of its fractal reality. The dates on this list conform with the Gregorian calendar, which is not used in all nations.
