Obviously this game.
#1 doesn't happen without #5
The rest are irrelevant LOL
A rebel in the house.
Plus they would be called something like 'The debutantes' or 'The Boston Tea Drinkers' if we hadn't kicked Britain's butt.
Even worse they could have been called the Boston Breakers
Givin' that number 2 didn't actually happen, I would have to disqualify that from my options. The Fall of the Soviet Empire was fairly signficant for the modern world, The Fall of the Roman Empire was the fall of one of the first true great empires, and if we hadn't won our Revolutionary War, who knows what life might be like now. BUT, I just had to vote for 19-0. Man I suck.
I went with the revolutionary war, because, quite frankly, I think we're going to have to beat those ignorant f'ks back down again one of these days.
The fall of the Roman empire, without a doubt. I was there. Nothing else even comes close.
Who, the Brits? Man they are our only friends in the world. Now if you want to recreate the French & Indian War and kick some French ass, sign me up!
i must be drunk, and hungry for confederate blood
but yeah--screw the limeys too--except wasp, gomez, Mike and the splitters
all of the above
I agree. Oh, you were calling the English ignorant f**ks, not the rebel Yankees.
I went with #3.
Of course that's assuming he was really here the first time and not just some Doug Henning type character.
I go with whichever happy day in January 2008 that Eli Ruin History signed up to this forum.
How exactly would Eli ruin history? Will he get hurt and not finish the game so he won't have a chance to choke?
Christ's resurrection. After being a non-believer for so long, I'd be so f**ked.
where are the colts trolls running up #3?
Probably Constantine the Great converting to Christianity. Not because I'm particularly religious, but because almost all that came after was a result of that.

I went with #3 - God is a Patriots fan and I don't want to do anything to make him mad - especially THIS week
Most historically significant event? As an amateur historian, I'd have to say the Fall of the Western Roman Empire is the most important in shaping our modern world. As it ushered in the Middle ages, a period of intense competition between petty kingdoms. These small nations, as a result of the constant competition, bred innovation on an unprecedented scale (in a period called the Renaissance, a time when the classic knowledge of the Greeks and Romans were being reexamined). Thus, Europe soon had the edge over the rest of the world, with their superior military technology, they conquered and colonized the Americas.
Again, Greco-Roman ideals were being looked at during the Enlightenment era. A small handful of British colonies located on the Atlantic seaboard of North America took them into account, and drafted a Constitution for a new form of Government.
There you are, a very brief and somewhat poorly done analysis of why things are the way they are.
