This Day in History

In 1582, absolutely nothing happened in Catholic countries on this date, or on the other days between October 5th and 14th of that year.  This is because those days did not exist in countries that had adopted the Gregorian calendar.  If you want to take your time traveling Delorean for a spin in a historically Catholic nation, don't set the machine to go back 429 years; you will end up in the temporal void erected by Pope Gregory XIII to protect the time-space continuum.
