A referendum in Canada to determine whether Quebec would become a sovereign state or remain a Canadian province ended up being a nail-biter. Only 50.6% of the voters voted "No" with 49.4% voting "Yes" on the 1995 Quebec referendum. The federalists ended up with just 54,288 more votes than the separatists. The number of people that changed history by preventing what could possibly have been the formation of a new North American country could all have fit comfortably inside Yankee Stadium.

Upon his inception in 1938, Superman was far weaker than we know him to be now. He couldn't fly, instead he was able to make giant leaps of up to ? of a mile! He was only fast enough to pass an express train, and would likely have been killed if hit by that train. He also was only durable enough to withstand bullets - anything more powerful would probably have killed him.
Superman gradually accumulated more powers as the years went on, until he became the nigh-invincible character we know today. He can fly through space, travel faster than light, withstand nuclear explosions and move entire planets. It honestly seems more than a little unfair.
Some awesome lists!
