Right Sputnik should be #1 for the 1950s.

80s - NES
90s - SNES
00s - Wii

Life was insignificant before the 80s.

Nov 2016 - NES outsells PS1 (JP)

Don't Play Stationary 4 ever. Switch!

Could make a case for the incredibly progress of medicine. Smallpox, measles, polio, whooping cough, diphtheria, cholera, typhus, etc. use to be major issues killing millions.

So many meh worthy things there. Where are the events that actually matter like the invention of the internet or the rise of Netflix?

Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018.

Brexit my ass. The Japanese Tsunami of 2011 still haunts me, Not much comes close to that along with Fukushima but people have short memories and have just backed away into blissful ignorance of the whole situation. It'll be looked back upon as one of the worst environmental disasters. Brexit is a mild breeze compared to March 2011, Hell Stuxnet and Iran, PRISM and Snowden, Wiki leaks, The rise of black bloc communists and ruination of third level education around the globe but mostly on the west coast of America unde the guise of liberal values, Venezuelas communist fuck up causing ao many to starve , The annexation of Crimea, Trump standing up to Kim Jung Un and setting up an need for a peace broker after 60 years of division and so much more happened this decade that is either bigger, worse, more memorable or more significant than Brexit. What ever the case, regardless of wheter people want to acknowledge or ignore the problem, Fukushima is a problem that will last for centuries at the very least of moores law but is one bad mega earth quake or something similar away from destroying the pacific ocean and every shore line up and down the Americas, South Asia and Australia and much of the indian ocean and if combined with a hurricane shortly after perhaps a bad few centuries for the northernhemisphere as a whole.


China Numba wan!!

Brexit ? Really ? Who cares about what 52% of english peasants decided ?

"Quagmire, are you the type of guy who takes 'no' for an answer ?"
"My lawyer doesn't allow me to answer that question"

Because I consider it the first major populist victory. Since then Trump has become president and Giuseppe Conte is the prime minister of Italy.
