Did Boris Yeltsin really cause an autocoup/insurrection in 1993 in the Russian Constitutional Crisis, or is the usage of those terms inaccurate? I know something went very wrong very quickly, but is calling that an autocoup or insurrection accurate?
Those really aren't the same thing. The Röhm Putsch (also known as the Night of the Long Knifes) was in 34, where Hitler purged dissident members of the SA/Nazi Party/Political Elite. Not too sure what the repercussions of a failed one there would be? The ones purged would probably have to actually be organised, planning the putsch Hitler accused them of planing. As far as I know things were far from as clear cut. If it was never started we might see a Nazi party with a stronger socialist slant. But I'm not an expert on that subject.Could the "Night of the Long Knives/Night of Broken Glass" have failed (spectacularly?) What would be the repercussions of a failed either one?
If Nazi superscience makes an appearance, then Hitler could be Walt Disney but he actually does get cryogenically frozen and demands not to be woken up until the Jews are gone.Kinda kitsch but I had the idea of WI Hitler became an evil German Walt Disney instead of an evil politician.

Realistically I think if he were a German Walt Disney then no one would pay much heed to his political views but over the decades they'd become more and more an unfortunate side note. He'd probably produce a few cartoons that were blatantly antisemitic or referencing German nationalism but I'd think with their historic and artistic value (like if we assume he has Disney's brilliance) they'd be regarded like Triumph of the Will or Birth of a Nation.
If he dies of natural causes or an accident?What happens if Hitler dies after Germany takes Memel but before the invasion of Poland?
hess is an idiot so i can only imagine how well his government would've goneIf he dies of natural causes or an accident?
So, Germany has basically pissed everyone off by this point, what with annexing Bohemia and Moravia earlier in the month, and now Memel.
Goering is not yet named heir apparent - he might be the second most powerful person in Germany, but a case could be made for the succession of Hess as Fuhrer at this point.
I would think that these political machinations and their repurcussions would scupper any plans to push Poland for more than transit rights and access to East Prussia.

Whilst there may well have been a slight increase in sales, I don't think it would be possible to quantify them, as Earl Grey tea is produced by so many different companies in many different countries. It's the second most popular tea in the UK, accounting for a bit less than a fifth of all tea sold, apparently (source), but that's modern data, not 1980s/90s.Random question, what was the effect of sales of Earl Grey tea after Star Trek the Next Generation debuted? Asking because it occured to me that I probably only know that kind of tea exists, and only started drinking it because my ten year old self wanted to be like captain Picard.
