* Fall of the Berlin Wall - 1989

* Breakup of the Soviet Union - 1991

* 9/11 - 2001

* Little Britain (Brexit vote) - 2016

Yes, sometimes I think I've lived too long.

But I also never expected to see (in the US, at least):

an end to legal segregation of races
legalization of gay marriage
government supported health care

and on a lesser note, legalization of marijuana

So there are some good things, mixed with the bad.

Very true, but I'm not sure how many good things British voters are going to see coming out of their referendum decision. :-(

Yes, that doesn't seem to have any good possibilities.
