People bought gas masks, "anti-comet pills" and "anti-comet umbrellas".

The October revolution resulted in Lenin and the Bolsheviks taking complete control.

1972 - When he was 68 years old, on September 5th, the Palestinian terrorist group Black September, with the assistance of German neo-nazis, kidnapped and killed 11 Israeli athletes at the Olympic Games in Munich.
