Die geskiedenis herhaal homself soms op bisarre maniere.  Een van die ontstellende gebeure van die aanloop tot dieTweede Wêreldoorlog (1939–1945) was die sogenaamde Kristallnacht toe stormtroepe van die Nazi-party in die nag van 9 November 1938 Joodse besighede, huise en sinagoges in verskeie Duitse stede en dorpe se vensters stukkend gegooi en die inhoud geplunder het.  Die volgende dag was strate besaai met glasskerwe – vandaar die naam Kristallnacht of ‘nag van gebreekte glas’.  In hierdie geval was die Duitsers die agressors.

Pseudoscorpions originated in pre-Devonian times, more than 400 million years ago, and are one of the oldest living animal groups, having diverged into more than 3 400 species in 26 families.  Because of their small size and lack of medical and agricultural importance, pseudoscorpions have been studied by only a small group of scientists, mostly taxonomists.  Only recently have these arthropods begun to gain the interest of a wider audience.
