So you're just 15 years old and you have a collection of 2000 Transformers?!? It's taken me 31 years to amass my current collection of 1940! Wow!

Okay, recently acquired a few more toys, but also decided to remove some toys that I'm currently selling from my count. So now I'm on: 1941 (UCM)!

1941:
* The Holocaust begins.
* Japan bombs Pearl Harbour.
* You think Australian politics is crazy now? Australia had three Prime Ministers within one year! Robert Menzies, Arthur Fadden and John Curtin!

1942:
* Japan invades the Dutch East Indies, and are actually welcomed by the local Indonesians who have grown tired of living under Dutch colonial rule (the enemy of my enemy...). Many Indonesians actually welcomed the Japanese with open arms. The Dutch aren't so keen and execute a Scorched Earth strategy, deliberately destroying much of the East Indies' infrastructure before leaving.
* A Jewish girl turns 13 and begins documenting her life. Her family flee to the Netherlands and hide in an attic. Her name was Anne Frank.
* In Papua New Guinea, Australian and Japanese forces battle each other in the Kokoda Track Campaign. Many local Papua New Guineans assisted Australian forces and came to be known as the 'Fuzzy Wuzzy Angels,' including carrying wounded Australian soldiers under heavy enemy fire. In spite of this, the Australian government has not officially recognised the Fuzzy Wuzzy Angels' contribution and many Aussie lives saved (e.g. better foreign aid to improve local health, education in villages around the Kokoda track etc.). On a darker note, Australian forces also bullied local PNGs into only assisting them, and any locals accused of assisting the Japanese were brutally punished, even publicly executed in front of children.

1943:
* One of the worst battles in human history finally concludes.
* Jacques Cousteau and Émile Gagnan invent the Aqua Lung, the precursor to the Self-Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus (SCUBA), which itself is a precursor to rebreather technology used in spacesuits.
* After forming minority government in 1941, John Curtin begins to serve another term as Prime Minister after the Labor Party defeated the Coalition in the greatest landslide victory in Australian history. This guy's totally a keeper.
