I didn't. It might be useful to some people and their research.

a few examples:
Vampires (http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla%3Aen-US%3Aofficial&tbs=tl%3A1&q=vampire+timeline&aq=f&aqi=g1g-c4g-m2&aql=&oq=&gs_rfai=)
Werewolves (http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla%3Aen-US%3Aofficial&tbs=tl%3A1&q=werewolf+timeline&aq=0c&aqi=g-c1&aql=&oq=were+timeline&gs_rfai=)
Homosexuality (http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla%3Aen-US%3Aofficial&tbs=tl%3A1&q=homosexuality+timeline&aq=0c&aqi=g-c1&aql=&oq=homosexuali+timeline&gs_rfai=)
Matricide (http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla%3Aen-US%3Aofficial&tbs=tl%3A1&q=matricide+timeline&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&oq=&gs_rfai=)

hope this is useful to some people :)

wait, what?

vampires, werewolves, homosexuality and matricide are normal to combine in a sentence yet alone a life in what universe?

hint...put the emphasis on the "what".

no need to panic. they're in separate time lines and not even in a sentence... hope that eases you somewhat.


ETA:
BUT, just in case:

After the vampires found out about he was a homosexual werewolf he committed matricide to save his mother the shame of a media circus.

It's interesting as a novelty, but when it gives unfiltered results like this (http://www.azconservative.org/page12.php), its usefulness is dubious.

I'd seen the timeline before, but didn't realize until now, that you can drill down, getting closer and closer to the date you're interested in. I found some articles I hadn't found using other search methods. Thanks Logic.

Meh. I was hoping for a factual timeline. Not when Lestat made Louis a vampire.

It is what it is, and as far as I'm concerned I am delighted to know it exists. It's of enormous help to me with a novella I'm writing centered around an event about which I can say that I--yes, me--am the expert, since it centers around events that happened to me during a specific period of my life. So although I never knew that Google has a "timeline" on certain events, it helps with my remembrance of the sequence, names and titles, etc. What's not accurate ot germane is easy for me to disregard.
