    So far, the list is:

    *Communication/Language (Kawphy, Darth_Yuthura, Ender_Sai, … fiercely contested by Jabba-wocky)
    *Plant/Animal Domestication (Jabbadabbado, Placeholder)
    *Scientific Method (Darth_Yuthura, shanerjedi, Lord Vivec)
    *Compassion/Cooperation/Humanism (DarthBoba, TheShinyLightsaber, Rogue_Ten)
    *The Internet (Darth Geist)
    *The United Nations (SithLord_Darth_Vader)
    *Defeat of the Axis Powers in WWII (MasterDillon)
    *Creation of the United States (MasterDillon)
    *Photography (WormieSaber)
    *Survival since Nuclear Weapons (firesaber, Gonk, DarthLowBudget)
    *Religion/Christianity (Obi-Zahn Kenobi, TheShinyLightsaber, Blue_Jedi33)
    *Writing (Mortimer_Snerd, Placeholder)
    *The Washing Machine (Kawphy)
    *Recognize Slavery as abhorrent (Kawphy)
    *Harnessing Electricity (darthdrago, Sauntaero)
    *Landing on the Moon (Mustafar_66, Katana_Geldar, Darth-Seldon, MistrX, Bib Fartuna, sons_of_anakin_tatooine)
    *Art/Music/Literature (Mar17swgirl)
    *Abstract Thought (Lord Vivec)
    *Antibiotics/Penicillin (ZanderSolo)
    *Structure of DNA (ZanderSolo)
    *the Enlightenment (LostOnHoth)
    *Fire (honeybadger)
    *Fermentation (rumsmuggler)*Plumbing (SuperWatto)
    *National Parks (beezel26)
    *Cities (Lego Thrawn)

    I'll categorize these soon, and then make them into a new poll with a new thread. Just want to allow people to offer some last ideas first, and debate my categorization, since it's been so long since I've updated this thread.

    I'm thinking the categories so far should be something like:

    ~ Communication, Language, Writing, Art, Music, Literature, Photography, the Internet
    ~ Plant & Animal Domestication, Fermentation, Cities, the Green Revolution in the 20th century
    ~ the Scientific Method, Abstract Thought
    ~ Modern Medicine, Antibiotics/Penicillin, Genetics
    ~ Landing on the Moon
    ~ harnessing Fire, the Wheel, the Industrial Revolution, harnessing Electricity, Plumbing, the Washing Machine
    ~ Compassion, Cooperation, Humanism, recognizing Slavery as abhorrent
    ~ Religion, Christianity
    ~ the Enlightenment
    ~ creation of the modern state, creation of the United States, the defeat of the Axis Powers, the United Nations, National Parks
    ~ survival since Nuclear Weapons
