Mark David Chapman
Had Mark Chapman died in 1979, we would have still attended John Lennon concerts till now, or buy his latest albums.
For those who don't know John Lennon - well he was one of the most iconic singer and songwriter of all time...
Lennon was a member of The Beatles - the most succesful group ever produced by Britain.
Sadly, Lennon died on the night of 8 December 1980, while walking home to his apartment in New York City.
He was shot by Mark Chapman, a deranged weirdo who was obsessed with Lennon.
Hours before the shooting, Lennon signed an autograph for Chapman.
Millions of Lennon and The Beatles fans around the world, mourned his tragic death.
Chapman is still alive today, in prison of course.
In 2001, he was eligible for parole but was denied parole at least 4 times.
John Lennon's classic - Imagine
And what if Lee Harvey Oswald died in 1962?
Lee Harvey Oswald
Well maybe Barrack Obama will not be the US President of the day.
Oswald allegedly shot the 35th US President, John F. Kennedy on 22 November 1963 in Dallas.
The assassination of President Kennedy
Kennedy, one of the most charismatic US President in history, died instantly.
The famous picture of the "assasination" of Lee Harvey Oswald by Jack Ruby.
Oswald himself was shot to death by Jack Ruby, 2 days later on 24 November 1963, while being escorted by police.
I wonder what will happen if someone shot Jack Ruby after that? Crazy isn't it..
