The More You Know: The Year Was 1528

I decided to see how long my iPhone went back in time.  It stopped at 1528 and then stayed there.  I had to remove and reinstall the calendar app.  This lead to me seeing what was actually going on during 1528 and here are some of the things I found.  I thought I better finish this before January ends, which was the whole purpose of doing this.  You know the New Year and all and before February 1st comes upon us.  So which year would you rather be living?  1528 or 2020?  I think the choice is clear as only one of them is available to us and the other is not.
