It's interesting that the article about Archduke Franz Ferdinand himself on Wikipedia is less than a third of the size of the article about his assassination. And they don't even mention the true culprits!

His assassination led, by the way, for anyone who didn't know, to a little bit of trouble.

2022-10-15 Rerun commentary: Oh, that's right. We're still in the past after the universe-reset and heading back towards the present timelines of all the themes. I was a little confused myself for a second there as I pondered what to write here.

I suppose you can tell it's the past because the Martians are using reel-to-reel tapes. (Ignore the fact that they're still using them in the modern day.)
