Sure puts everything into perspective doesn't it? Seems like there was always a war going on over the course of the last 100 years. Hope that changes moving forward.

This video is depressing, im sure that if you try to focus on the good things that happen each year in the world ,there can be as impacting and as big to human race as the one posted in this video.

Great video. Seems most of the most important events were very negative. A few I would have left out and a few Id add in. Lets hope the future is brighter for us all!!

Sadly true. That was very interesting.

There were a few I would add in but maybe because I'm American and the focus is not just on this country, which is why they were left out? Hate seeing "Lewinski" as something important in the last 100 years. confused5 I would've much rather seen "I Have a Dream" make the list.

What a strange man this is. What a shame he missed so many achievements in the world. Jonas Salk(polio vaccine), Margaret Sanger(women's rights), Frank Colton(oral contraceptives), Willis Carrier(A/C), Robert Jarvik(artificial heart)
I probably would have mentioned the father of computers, telephones and movies as well as women's lib.

Those are all awesome.

I am kind of curious if this was done by a woman, would there have been a totally different list?

Whenever I see lists of this nature; the most important, the best, the worst, etc, I ask myself what is the slant from which the list was created? I haven't time to bother figuring this one out, but I think it is telling that the 1967 "six-day war" is mentioned, yet there is no mention of the formation of the State of Israel, without which, there could have been no six-day war. I also think it is interesting that the Nuremburg trials are mentioned, yet there is no mention of the end of WWII, on 16 Aug, 1945.

So, I would respectfully suggest this list be taken, as my history professor would have said, "Cum grano salus."

chefkathleen - The telephone, the moving picture (silent, not "talkies") and women's lib (well, the suffrage movement, anyway) all pre-date 1911 so do not belong in the list.

The women's lib in my generation was after 1911. As was Margaret Sanger's movement. The first BC clinic was around '14.

I agree about Monica Lewinski, really not that significant to me. But from a purely American point of view, Jackie Robinson breaking the color barrier had so much to to with civil rights in the US, and also the assassinations of Bobby Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr. If they had lived, I think racism in the US would not be as prevelant as it is today. Also the development and growth of the internet. It totally changed how we live.

Unfortunately, the so-called "most important" events are often humanitarian crises that often result in conflicts to some degree, if not all out war...

And I too would question some of the events included on the list, like the aforementioned Lewinsky scandal, and the opening of the Empire State Building, among others...

I had really expected to see something really important, like "December, 2006...Nicola opens Lush Stories"...

I don't know who the heck made up that lousy list...just saying...happy8

She was a white house intern that President Clinton had an affair with while in office.

Had Monica Lewinsky looked a lot hotter then Clinton's approval rating might have gone up?

So the guy was horny? Maybe he wasn't getting any at home? haha

...a blow job, hm, well, then I must agree. A blowjob on Clinton has to be The Most Important Event of the last 100 years. Even a non-American must realize that.
