"Hinge of History" Refuted (April Fools' Day)

Interesting new metric. It's very attractive at first, but this line of reasoning omits the numerous neolithic henges, which solved the alignment problem pretty definitively. 

Are you neglecting some of humanity's most important hinginess due to a simple difference in spelling? Clearly this is a case of scale insensitivity. We should extend the current hingey period to include the past 5,000 years.
