Here are some one liners...
Devil's Acre Sprouts a Clockwork Orange -- One of the greatest English composers is born this year. His work is incorporated in modern music today such as the movie, A Clockwork Orange. I talk about the book and government-out-of-control mind-control.
The Virtue and the Problem with 'Starting at the Bottom' -- Young Isaac Newton returns to the family manor to become a shepherd and he sucks at it. I talk about the virtue of starting at the bottom.
Unconfirmed But Interesting... -- A few things I'm not sure actually happened, but I wish they had happened.
Devil's Acre Sprouts a Clockwork OrangeThe famous English composer, Henry Purcell, is born this year in a region of England that will becomes known as Devil's Acre. He will begin his first musical composition at 9 years old (though this cannot be verified). He will become one of the greatest composers England has ever produced. Certainly most modern people will hear adaptations by Jethro Tull, The Who, and recognizable background music for movies such as A Clockwork Orange. After his death in 1695, Henry Purcell will be buried next to the organ in Westminster Abbey.   
The Virtue and the Problem with 'Starting at the Bottom'Young Issac Newton has made very few friends at school. He outshines the other students so that no one wants to draw a comparison between themselves and this brilliant boy, so Issac has returned home to the family farm to learn to manage the manor. His mother gives him an easy job as a "grazier" which is a shepherd for all practical purposes. Unfortunately for the farm and for Isaac's income potential, he is not a very attentive shepherd. Instead, his active mind pushes him to build various types of waterwheels along the local streams. His sheep drift onto the neighboring property, causing damage to Issac's reputation and his pocketbook.
