Well let's see what we could get with these PODS(Based on the previous Ideas) shall we:
#1. Anime does not become Mainstream.
#2. Gore wins in 2000 & 2004
#3. 9/11, and th Afgan/Iraq Wars never happens
#4. Social Network Sites like Myspace fail miserably and online porn is nowhere near as successfull as it is in the OTL.
#5. Less of a Divide between the left and right.
#6. Post-Cyberpunk Technophilia cliques replaces the Emo and Japanesephile sub-cultures.
#7. Porn being more successful in the Television/Movie Industry.
#8. And of course, the complete and utter failure of Reality TV.
So what would the Pop Culture of this world look like by 2010? Any Guesses?
