I wondered how that worked.  With half a dozen open terminals, each of them accepting commands at various times, it's quite cool how they all end up in chronological order when merged.  I've tried all sorts of ways to break that but it refuses to be fooled.

That's because the order of operations is

3) The "history" command executes
This is the tiniest of issues but I was just about to start experimenting with making
