    Alternate name for Mauritania

    ,Abe they snag the name Ghana before Gold Coast does? Or it might end up like something with the Guineas and Congos, where the name of the colonizer, the capital, or a part of their official title is added. Though I imagine the French wouldn’t have two French Mauritania’s within their land...

    Who is in the Virgin Islands? Can’t tell from the shade if it is meant to be Danish, American, or if it is the Norwegian color so many people poach to give to Denmark.

    Maybe include some portion of Utah? The Mormon population there likes to say they are mostly English, or at least that was how it was in the past. Not too surprising given they moved to Utah back at a time when a great deal of the North was of English stock. Hmmm. Feels kind of weird referring...

    Return of Horrible Educational Maps

    Come to think of it, almost looks like the Tangiers International Zone was moved north.

    Return of Horrible Educational Maps

    I feel a link to the video is required. It reminds me of how people mocked candy industry, Christians, or holidays in a way by showing a picture of Santa under the wrapper of an Easter Bunny. It was part of an awareness campaign related to dementia. Not that I can imagine how it would relate to...

    WI the Second Spanish Republic won the Spanish Civil War?

    The Soviet faction gave it to the Soviets. The guns and weapons were originally free, though mostly only given to Stalinists who then got to control who got them. They got the gold out under cover of night and their cover story if anyone found them was that they were sending it to New York where...

    Disappointed in 1632

    Priests are major characters in future books both uptime and downtime, and one of the only people to die outside of the school or a battle was an old woman who stayed home, depressed that the wife of an downtime assistant to the Catholic priest had taken her role cleaning the church, making her...

    Disappointed in 1632

    I read the book online during computer class as a kid. I do reread the books these days, but seldom the first one. The expanded universe is where it is at. Granted, you will need a library with most of the official books and you cannot really expect to read all or even most of the Grantville...

    What if Portugal conquered Morocco?

    I am guessing it would be called or semi-officially part of the Kingdom of Algarves. It is the southernmost part of Portugal, and they sometimes referred to it being both in Europe and Africa. I certainly can’t see them using a name like Morocco, given they want to avoid having Moors if they...

    I suppose if anyone would call the Spaniards sheep f@*#ers it would be the indigenous people of the Americas. Though I am surprised they knew about Albania.

    Give the Emir’s men a bit longer to get things in order. I am sure they will rename those around the time they take care of Bordeaux and Cognac.

    I feel Parma-Modena would be a more appropriate name for the area. That or Southwestria.

    Make America less fearful of “profanity” and “nudity”

    French customs and products may have been fashionable, but people weren’t going to change their whole way of doing things. For centuries pale skin was a sign of being aristocratic, and layers of clothing showing how someone was civilized. Helped along of course by the British being a textiles...

    He was slandered by the press as raping someone to death. How does this relate to this?

    Make America less fearful of “profanity” and “nudity”

    I don’t see many women going around topless. Except possibly some who are mentally ill. Maybe if they have a tank top or bra of some sort on? Gives their body better support, plus it is less likely children see. One of the biggest things of all this is exposing half-nude adults to children...

    A Map Shitpost Thread

    The Twelfth Amendment states that is no one has a majority of the electoral votes it goes to the House of Representatives. Though I think they have it that the Representatives from each State get one vote between them, so would assuredly vote amongst themselves. There is not going to be a...
