    If Gavrilo Princip decided to stay home and make a sandwhich vs go out and buy one, WW1 may never have happened.

    Argentina invading The Falkland Islands in 1982......as we know our boys defeated them which in turn put Maggie Thatcher in a good light with the voters the following year. Got to thank General Galtieri for that.

    I wouldn’t call the invasion of a group of islands insignificant.

    Didnt say it was. A lot of men on both sides lost their lives over the decision of a tyrant in charge of his country.

    Well it’s sort of the idea of the thread. Insignificant events having significant effects.

    You mentioned a significant event with a significant effect. Which is quite normal.

    Read a story about someone who had a connection onto the Ethiopian Airlines plane that crashed but his inbound flight was delayed and so he missed his connection. Can the human brain even comprehend shit like this?

    Yes. If he got on the plane he’d be dead.
