    Just curious what people would list them as. When you have millions of years to sift through I'd imagine we'll have a variety of items. A spinoff could be the five most important events in the history of your life, too. I haven't put mine together yet, but will later on.

    --The development of religion
    --The invention of the firearm
    --The development of written language
    --The harnessing of electricity
    --The creation of The Real World The development of food preservation
  4. I think you need much more specific parameters to get fair answers on this.
    I mean, are we talking the five most important moments in recorded history? In human history? Does the creation/big bang count?
  5. The birth of Otto Frederick Rohwedder on July. 7, 1880 in Des Moines, Iowa should be somewhere on the list.

    That is if cliches have any import whatsoever.

    Oh sure, the creation/big bang definitely counts. I'm talking the history of the world. I know it's pretty broad, but I think that's the fun of it.

    The death of the dinosaurs is a given, seeing that they would have kept us from evolving and all.

    I will I guess I will say that this is a "modern world" list.

    Alexander the Great and his conquest of the known world
    The birth of Jesus Christ and the spread of Christianity
    The American Revolution and the birth of the United States
    The Great Depression and its effects both in the USA and across the globe
    The end of World War II and the aftermath therein

    1979 - Jack Blades, Brad Gillis and Kelly Keagy leave the band Rubicon and form a new trio
    1980 - They and two other musicians form Night Ranger
    1983 - Night Ranger releases the LP Midnight Madness which includes the future single "Sister Christian."
    1984 - "Sister Christian" hits the Top 5 on the Billboard Hot 100
    I can't think of a fifth event; everything since 1984 has been gravy
