    The Single Wing (football)
    The "palms-up" boxing stance (picture a white, mustachioed bare-knuckle fighter from 1905 and you know what I mean)

    OK, that was unexpectedly hard.

    June 15, 1215: King John signs the Magna Carta, setting forth in writing for the first time in Western history (that I'm aware of; I'm certainly nervous laying this out for EH's scrutiny) the idea that a monarch's power is not absolute, but is subject to the rule of law, even if they are laws of the monarch's own making.

    September 11, 2001: The deadliest foreign attack ever on United States soil touched off two wars that are still being fought, caused sweeping changes in American law, and generally set the tone of international relations from that day to the present.

    April 5, 1930: Gandhi takes a pinch of salt from the shore of the Indian Ocean, setting in motion the (largely) nonviolent struggle for independence of the world's second most populous country. He was right about pretty much everything.

    November 9, 1989: Protestors begin openly hammering on the Berlin Wall and walking unopposed through the Brandenburg Gate. Marked the beginning of the end of Eastern European communism.

    May or June, 313: Constantine issues the Edict of Milan, allowing Christianity to turn from a phenomenally successful underground movement into the de facto official religion of the Roman Empire. Changed...pretty much everything since.

    Name five once-great or important cities that are not so much anymore.

    The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum is a museum located on the shore of Lake Erie in downtown Cleveland, Ohio, United States. It is dedicated to archiving the history of some of the best-known and most influential artists, producers, engineers and others who have, in some major way, influenced the music industry through the genre of rock music. The museum is part of the city's redeveloped North Coast Harbor.
