Some big stuff happened this week in history. If you have an inclination to travel back in time, take these 5 tips with you:

TIP: Avoid San Francisco on October 17, 1989. Maybe avoid 1989 altogether, but definitely steer clear of San Francisco. It’s a bit shaky.

TIP: Open up the newspaper on October 18, 1896 and meet America’s first ever comic strip. They call him the “The Yellow Kid”.

TIP: Stay out of England! 

TIP: Head over to Germany in 1844 and greet the new arrival in the world of post-modern thought. Happy birth day Friedrich Nietzsche.

TIP: Celebrate the Sweetest Day! On October 19,1922 Herbert Birch Kingston started giving gifts to the poor, sick, and anyone who needed a smile.
