The first scenario being explored by Nixonhead in his story with only 2 Burans flying. However, I am more interested in any future the Buran (all 5 vehicles)...

    AHC: A plausible timeline to leave all post-1985 Anglophone Pop culture unrecognizable

    Basically, the challenge is, without Political Dystopia or Nuclear war, have a timeline which, by an alternate 2023, most American Pop Culture in the last 35 years we know doesn't exist, with a POD after the year 1985. The doesn't need to be from pop culture.

    AHC : Worse 90s, Dystopic 2000s

    So the 1990s up to 2008 was, while not perfect (considering Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Iraq, 9/11, Sudan, Rwanda, Chechnya, the failed August coup, etc, etc), it was better than it really should've been all things considered, especially with the break up of the Soviet Union involved. So, with a...

  13. WI : Mario Cuomo in 1992

    Governor Mario Cuomo of New York considered running for President in 1992, but finally decided not to run. Let's say he runs and wins the Democratic nomination. How well would he do in the general election against Bush? Would he do worse or better than Clinton? Who would be his running mate?

  17. A RISCy Future
    Threadmarks: The Beginning

    In the 1990s, it seemed like RISC CPUs would displace x86. For several reasons, however, this future never really happened, although in embedded devices ARM has easily won and is even now competing against x86 on the desktop. So, what if x86 didn't completely fend off the various RISC platforms...

  19. Who did the US and UN exactly support in Somalia during 1990s?

    Basically, for a "No Black Hawk down" scenario where US and UN intervene in Somalia with more rescources, we need to know their goals.
