Is it just me, or do a huge amount of historical events seem to occur simply due to tiny mistakes?
For example, the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand was really only made possible by the fact that the procession he was travelling in made a wrong turn. When the cars slowed down to turn back, the 19 year old Gavrilo Princep took the opportunity to shoot both Ferdinand and his wife in the head. Arguably, a wrong turn is all it to kick off World War One. (Well, sort of...)
