    Imagine this, a world in which "Naruto" really did exist, but Japan, in a sense to prevent situations to occur such as wars over them keeps everything quiet, as in all of Japan knows but that is it.

  8. Timeline advice: how do I get an Alan Keyes presidency in 2000?

    Okay, so I'm planning on starting a... less ambitious timeline than the ones I've tried and miserably failed in the past. It's going to be called "The 21st Century - The Most Cursed Century in History". I intend to have a POD in the 1990s but I only want it to start getting really cursed in...

    Bush Presidency without 9/11?

    Let's say that somehow 9/11 is foiled or averted quietly, and September 11th, 2001 is just remembered as an ordinary day. What would the rest of George W's presidency have looked like without 9/11 and the War on Terror?

  19. Effects on Call of Duty Series (and Military Games in General) if no 2000s Middle East Conflicts?

    I admit, I know nothing about these games (other than memes) as I'm more into shooters like DOOM, but I've always wondered about the impact of post-9/11/2001 events on the storylines these games focus on, how they sell and are received/reviewed/etc. I see that the first game to not take place...
