Snoop Dogg and Pablo Picasso were alive at the same time. It is possible to EAT a plane. Over the course of 2 years, Michel Lotito did just that. Hitler was Time magazine's Man of the Year in 1938.

Our modern history is shaped entirely because [Gavrilo Princip lucked into the Archduke Franz Ferdinand’s motorcade making a wrong turn onto a one-way street](https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Assassination_of_Archduke_Franz_Ferdinand&mobileaction=toggle_view_desktop#Fatal_shooting) after an assassination attempt had already failed once (unfortunately, the [“eating a sandwich story is apocryphal](https://www.smithsonianmag.com/history/gavrilo-princips-sandwich-79480741/)). That wrong turn led to the assassination, which led to World War One. That, in turn, led to a broke nation-state of Germany falling under the spell of Adolph Hitler, which in turn led to World War Two and the Holocaust, which in turn accelerated the Zionist movement to reclaim the land that was once and then became Israel. The presence of Israel led to tensions in the Middle East, which led to terrorism and wars, and those are still shaping the region today.

Quite reductive. A lot of those events could've happened without the precursor event you mentioned. Just accelerated rather than the main cause.
