It may not be a well known fact that while London was burning, Sir Isaac Newton was playing around with his prisms. While officially he was breaking white light into its component colors, several historians now suspect that his motives were not so innocent. Although he claimed to have been visiting his mother in Leeds, evidence has reached the sensei909 detective squad that suggests that his mother had refused to talk to him for several years at that point, on account of being dead. It is therefore likely that just one year after laying the basis for apple warfare, Sir Isaac had moved to the hardball league, just as France was declaring war on England.

See, History can be fun!
