As a history nerd, that was awesome.  The Holy Roman Empire being split up, the Mongols just taking over whatever the hell they wanted to, and a ton of tiny border changes that probably cost a millions of lives.  Finally things start settling down at the turn of the 20th century, and then someone pops a cap in Franz Ferdinand, the Soviet Union spreads out like one of those giant blankets people bring to an outdoor concert, Hitler tries to take over the God damn world, everything east of Berlin is being grabbed up by the Commies, and then they lose most of it.  Great music too.  The lesson here: history is effing nuts.
