Eh, politely disagree. What about the genocide of Native Americans, the first and only use of atom bombs (2x), the election of George W., the Great Depression (starting on Wall Street), the Economic Crisis starting with the fall of the Lehmann brothers, the invention of ‘You can’t believe it isn’t butter (light)!’, the Vietnam War, the total chaotisation of Afghanistan and Iraq, causing the birth of Al Quaida and IS, the devastating effects of the mission of the American Tobacco Company (millions of deaths), the invention of Spearmint chewing gum, sending Pete Hoekstra to the Netherlands and the Cocacolonisation of the world?

Whose luck was that?
