  1. Sports-related AH Discussion Thread

    Okay, sports fans. How about some discussion related to sports--sporting events that never got to happen, games that could have gone a different way? Maybe this could be the place. Okay, first off: I found this on Wikipedia and thought it was interesting. If the Quebec Nordiques had never...
  2. Challenge: Stronger, Richer Africa

    (I almost put this in the Post-1900 thread, but decided it would work better here.) What would it take to create a world in which the nations of Africa (and feel free to create alternate nations in addition to or instead of a few of the ones that already exist--but no Draka) are stronger and...
  3. Personal Peeve: DC still capital after Southern Victory

    It was one of the things that always irked me about TL-191. The two capitals of two bitter enemies - just a few miles apart. What could go wrong there?[/sarcasm] Seriously, there's no way they'd keep the capital there, especially with Maryland borderline Confederate anyway. Personally, I think...

  5. New OTL Flags Thread

    For newer flags seen in OTL. For example, the new flag of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (well, new as of February 20, 2006:
  6. CSA Map/Link to more

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maps_of_the_United_States Also, I found this map of the CSA. It must be an early map, because W. Virginia is still part of Virginia. I thought it might help some people interested in scenarios.
  7. Sports AH Challenge: 1968 - Kareem Abdul-Jabbar signed by Phoenix Suns

    Okay, this idea's been floating around in my brain since maybe about 1993 when I watched a 25th anniversary tape put out by the Phoenix Suns that basically documented the history of the team. Imagine my surprise to find out that if not for the flip of a coin, one of the greatest basketball...
  8. Flag Request/Challenge Thread

    I figured since we had one for maps, it was only fair. Any ideas?
  9. Working on an idea - EU breaks up

    I'm kinda working on a FH scenario and I'm trying to figure out a situation where the EU essentially breaks up. Western Europe goes one way, Eastern Europe another, Scandinavia still another... I'm wondering about flags for those organizations. The one for Scandinavia is easy, but the other two...
  10. State Sucession/New States

    I'm working on a TL where several new states (Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa) join the Union, and I'm considering a few issues. 1. DC Statehood - what would it take to turn the District of Columbia into an actual state? 2. City Secession - The Bay Area is decidedly...
  11. WI Nixon visits Martin Luther King in Jail

    Martin Luther King, Sr. was a Republican, but got seriously ticked off when Nixon didn't visit MLK Jr. in jail in 1960. It cost Nixon a lot of support from African-Americans and arguably cost the GOP the African-American vote for decades. What if Nixon had decided to visit the civil rights...
  12. Prohibition Never Passes

    How about this: in Congress on the eve of passing the 18th Amendment, more logical heads prevail and the necessary majority is never gained in either house of Congress or the state legislatures. What does this mean in the long run? No major rise of organized crime, for one thing, as rum-running...
  13. Intervention in Russian Civil War

    In the aftermath of the First World War, the United States, Great Britain, and France turned their attention to intervening in the Russian Civil War between the Red and White factions. This only lasted from 1918 to 1920 with the US doing most of the work. But what if things had gone...
