Very Minor PODs

In 1847, Delaware nearly passed a gradual emancipation bill that would have freed all slaves born after 1850. It passed the State House, but failed the State Senate by one vote.

What if the bill did pass the State Senate and become law? I think it'd be a minor POD since Delaware is/was a small state, most of the black population was already free anyway, and relatively few people would have been freed by the start of the Civil War. But what sort of changes would have happened, both in Delaware and the rest of the country?

What if Dick Cheney had listened to Ok Computer?
 
In 1963, the Zoological Society of London lets one of its members, one George H. Martin, have a band known as the Beatles, have a shoot outside the London Zoo's Insect House for an album of theirs. However, this didn't happen in OTL, where they declined it.



Perhaps having the Beatles using the house for the cover results in at least two things I can think of:
  1. The London Zoo gets a boost in visits thanks to it, which gives it and the ZSL more money. That could brings Butterflies (pardon the pun) conderning populations of animals and conservation worldwide.
  2. Depending on the time the photo is taken, like whether before or after the day of recording, the production of this album is altered oh so slightly.

Brazilian president Afonso Pena (wikipedia page in Portuguese) doesn't die from pneumonia in 1909. With him still alive, the 1910 presidential election (the first "close" race of the Brazilian Old Republic, the others being 1922 and 1930) is even messier, since his OTL successor, Nilo Peçanha, immediately endorsed Hermes da Fonseca while the old and tired Pena might very well choose not do anything about it.
 
The ex girlfriend of Lula doesnt give a interview to the Globo television network talking about he saying to her to make an abortion of his son when she was pregnat. This severely affect his campaign and perhaps if this not happen, a more radical Lula can be elected to the brazilian presidency 3 elections before the election that he was elected in real life.

Now that might make an interesting story. Not often we see a Brazilian TL on recent politics and one where a simple lack of an interview could give us Lula, but not as we in the rest of the world know him.
 
One of Titanic's prop shafts overheats forcing the crew to stop it before it seizes up. As a result of the reduction in speed the ship doesn't hit the iceberg. After a few hours the stopped engine is restarted and Titanic arrives in New York on schedule.
