** It has been shown that the Caucasians do have up to 5% of their gene pool inherited from Neanderthals. It is likely that there never really was an extinction - the ''Homo sapiens'' simply absorbed the ''Homo neanderthalensis'' by intermarriage. As ''Homo sapiens'' outnumbered ''Homo neanderthalensis'' by being able to produce greater numbers of surviving offspring, this is a likely outcome. Those two species resembled each other so much that if you gave a Neanderthal a shower and haircut, dress him in decent clothes and teach him the basics of the modern society, you could not tell him apart in a big city. So all Caucasians are in a sense descendants of the Neanderthals.

** In fact, numerous pre-9/11 terror attacks and aircraft hijackings were dwarfed by the September 11 attacks, mainly because of its unmatched scale (it was the deadliest terrorist incident to date). The Oklahoma City Bombing is the only pre-9/11 attack to still remain a prominent figure in the public consciousness, mainly because it was the deadliest homegrown terrorist attack in the United States.

The Oklahoma City Bombing is the only pre-9/11 attack to still remain a prominent figure in the public consciousness, mainly because it was the only other one with a particularly big death toll and deadliest homegrown terrorist attack in the United States.States. Fortunately, there has not been another attack on that scale since 9/11 -- probably the best known post-9/11 terror attacks in America are the Boston Marathon bombing and the Orlando nightclub massacre.

* The Soviet Union proved to be the first nation to embrace communism. After UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo communist nations spread all over the globe, making the USSR a relatively large cliché.

* How many people today know that whenever a fictional character delivers some kind of lecture or speech, and at one point exclaims, "You like me! You ''really'' like me!", is in reference to an infamous, and almost career-killing acceptance speech Sally Field once gave at the Oscars?

* Fan conventions. In an era where cons (especially gaming and anime cons) pop up for just about every little thing (including My Little Pony and Power Rangers), it's hard to explain just what was so revolutionary and important about Otakon, GenCon, or Comic-Con. They're still fun and important, but lack a certain gravitas that they used to.

* Abolitionism - as in the movement to get rid of slavery - today being against slavery (even though it still exists in some places in a "modern" form) is probably the definition of a self evident cause and only a StrawmanPolitical would ever argue for slavery. However, when the movement first came up it was seen as incredibly daring and outrageously radical. Many abolitionists even paid with their life for what they believed.

* As space technology advances, older books and films about robotic missions from previous decades can seem a bit dull in comparison to more recent missions-- it may seem hard to imagine people being excited about grainy black-and white photos taken on a brief flyby of a planet or moon if you've seen high-resolution color photos of the same place from landers and rovers. (Such as the hype about the Viking Mars probes in CosmosAPersonalVoyage compared to the images from the Pathfinder mission in the 2000 "Cosmos Update" epilogue on the DVDs.) But those older photos were the first close-up glimpse of those worlds at all, and without them, the modern missions could never have been attempted.

* Ride/ActionPark in UsefulNotes/NewJersey helped revolutionize American amusement parks, especially water parks, in TheEighties. To this day, many of its attractions are still radically unlike anything ever seen. Few people remember this nowadays, though. Instead, when the park is mentioned, it's remembered for just how dangerous many of those rides were before later parks managed to work out the kinks in them. Ask a New Jerseyan of a certain age about Action Park, and they'll tell you that it was either the most badass amusement park ever made, or a RealLife AmusementParkOfDoom that should never have been allowed to stay open as long as it was.
