Invention of LSD.
Albert Hofmann, a chemist. He was researching lysergic acid derivatives in a laboratory in Basel, Switzerland in 1938. Hofmann unintentionally swallowed a small amount of LSD while researching its properties. He subsequently had the first acid trip in history, marking the entry of a drug that would become a theme of undercurrent culture, most signified the Beatles' "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds."

20th century: The PC, nukes
21st century: 9/11, Bitcoin(may be).... its still early, 14 years only Cool
I guess 9/11 Terrorist Attacks was a major event in the history . .The destruction had undoubtedly damaged economy in the country, but then it also pushed US to control terrorism..
Well, actually I do think that Black Tuesday was a very significant event that changed the world as it made us realize how fragile our economic institutions are and how irresponsible and unscrupulous business tactics will eventually destroy the system.

Before 1929, the public perception of the economy and the stock market was that they are 'too big to fail'. So business people also began cheating the system left and right thinking that their little shenanigans are nothing more than a small ant on an elephant. But little did they know, those little ants piled up and eventually took down the elephant as public ignorance and paranoia about how stock markets really worked led to a collapse in the stock market.

It made people realize that the economy is not an invincible and all powerful entity that they thought it was and it is very much affected by human behavior, leading to more laws passed to regulate the stock market.

Coca-Cola was originally used as a nerve and brain tonic and a medical elixir. Coca-Cola was named by Frank Robinson, one of Pemberton's close friends, he also penned the famous Coca-Cola logo in unique script .
But now ,Coca Cola  is no longer seen as an medical elixir ….

Too big to fail is more of a recent concept.

What happened in the 20's is that people did not understand the risks they were taking.

Even Nuclear weapons can be a good thing. They have probably prevented wars from breaking out between countries that have nuclear weapons. The cold war is a good example of this. The US and the former USSR were in an arms race for years and used spies against each-other but never actually attacked each-other with military forces.

They never attacked each other en-mass, that's true; but there were a number of small scale conflicts that we were lucky didn't escalate. And I use the word "lucky" in this context intentionally; the Cuban missile crisis is a good example of why, though there are several others.

EDIT:

not to sound like a luddite, but it seems like we're starting to see a shift in the service industry, which is america's biggest labor pool. once things like that get automated, where will the jobs go? especially in the low skilled industries.

prior to that, jobs in factories and skilled labor were overtaken by improved technology. technology is not the same thing as AI. there's a difference in creating a car are much more cost-effective rates vs. firing all of your mcdonalds employees.

Hmm, to professional youtube/facebook like giver, professional forum poster, etc..  Grin

If it wasn't for nuclear missles/bombs the the US would have simply attacked/invaded Cuba if there were missiles pointed at us. Lives would have been lost.

The nuclear bomb has brought us closer to world destruction if something catastrophic were to happen (a country launches a nuclear missile aimed at an enemy)but it has also prevented several wars from breaking out (some conflicts likely never even existed due to the threat of nuclear bombs).

TV is also an event that changed the world.The first television set was built in 1928 and was a very simple invention; it consisted of a disk and a light and required only a little bit of electricity. Very few Americans owned a television set until the years following World War II. The progression of the picture quality of televisions was quick, engineers worked rigorously to improve it. In 1939, the first nationwide television broadcasts aired. And from 1945-1948 television sales increased 500%. The first widespread broadcast was in 1954. Today over 110 million households have televisions.

Dolly (5 July 1996 – 14 February 2003) was a female domestic sheep, and the first mammal to be cloned from an adult somatic cell, using the process of nuclear transfer. She was cloned by Ian Wilmut, Keith Campbell and colleagues at the Roslin Institute near Edinburgh inScotland. She was born on 5 July 1996 and she lived until the age of six; unfortunately she suffered from a progressive lung disease.

Hell,hello...who's calling me......Alexander Graham Bell Invented the Telephone By By June 1875 the goal of creating a device that would transmit speech electrically was about to be realized. He had proven that different tones would vary the strength of an electric current in a wire. To achieve success they therefore needed only to build a working transmitter with a membrane capable of varying electronic currents and a receiver that would reproduce these variations in audible frequencies.

Try to do the same with a natural juice and you'll be amazed of finding another dinosaur s** in your pot
Of course it might look as being from a different species but you've got my point.

Also , do you find caramel grose?

The nuclear bomb has brought us closer to world destruction if something catastrophic were to happen (a country launches a nuclear missile aimed at an enemy)but it has also prevented several wars from breaking out (some conflicts likely never even existed due to the threat of nuclear bombs).   

Well, the US had already tried and failed to invade Cuba before the Cuban Missile Crisis; that's what the whole fiasco of the Bay of Pigs was about. Now, it's true that several wars were most likely prevented by both sides either having access to nuclear weapons, or allies that did. Pakistan and India are probably a good example: before they both had nukes, they engaged in about 3 wars, and none after. On the other hand, this means that what conflicts there are tend to be proxy wars; that is, instead of engaging each other directly, the nuclear powers arm and support conflicts in regions strategically important to them, if necessary overthrowing governments left and right by whatever means necessary.

But the reason I brought up the Cuban Missile Crisis was because it was an example of how close they were to using nuclear weapons on each other. And that isn't just at the top levels; there is the case of a soviet submarine, the crew of which finding itself under attack (the US ship was supposedly just practicing on it...), was deciding whether or not to fire their nuclear tipped torpedoes on the other ship. In the end, it came down to one person refusing to go along with it (all 3 officers on board had to agree). I guess I don't have to tell you what would have happened if that had gone differently.

On the same day, a couple of US planes flew out of course and entered Soviet space, which prompted them to scramble fighter planes after them; in turn, the US scrambled nuclear armed fighter planes. Again, things could have gone quite wrong, if cooler heads hadn't prevailed.

And remember, we're not in the clear yet; either intentionally, or due to an unfortunate set of circumstances, we can still find ourselves in the middle of a nuclear conflict. Sure, nothing like that has happened yet (except if you're Japanese), but if it ever does, it might not take long for the destruction to surpass all the wars that it "avoided" (though as I said, many turn into proxy wars of one type or another).

Since many of the inventions listed are more of a transformation of 1 invention to another:

Flight - Essentially the world in available to everyone
transistor/microchip - without them everyday life for almost all of Earth is different
Atomic bomb - not so much of a change now besides all the fear since it's creation, but it will power us in the future when we leave Earth
Moon landing - 10k years ago the above 3 were not conceived but people looked at the moon and I'm sure some thought of going there
DNA/origin of life - still a work in progress. When we do solve or have a really solid clue it will answer the oldest questions - who are we and where did we come from.

Except for the bay of pics and the "proxy" wars yes, nukes have prevented wars from breaking out.

Even the "proxy" wars involve much fewer people and hence less people die (or are otherwise negatively affected).

You are correct and I agree to say that we are much closer to world destruction as a result of nuclear bombs/missiles. There are probably examples when we came even closer to nuclear way then what you or me or the public is aware of.

The US has several (at least one) treaties with many countries (I know at least Russia, but I think others as well) to reduce the number of nuclear bombs that each country has. I think the goal of these treaties is to prevent the types of disasters in your scenario when a "non sanctioned" nuclear war could erupt and when a "true" nuclear war breaks out (both would be very deadly for everyone/everything on this planet).

That is a neat one I wonder if this combined with the problems Boko Haram brought to the country
One can hope for change but I hope that change does happen and captivate the people to do something
Then it will be history and an event that does change the world.
