    What If?

    Well anyone whose read the Marvel comics WHat If? knows what I'm talking about but I'll explain further. Take an important event and then spin it around. For example, What if Gore was elected instead of Bush? What if 9/11 did not occur? What if J.F.K was never assasinated?

    Ok so I'll start it off with this question. Answer and then pose one of your own.
    What if J.F.K was never killed?

    Heh, 'What If' are things I have often thought about.

    Anway, I have little to say about the JFK assassination (having never been that interested in the circumstances) apart from to say that Red Dwarf answered the question more than fully enough :).

    The US would have invaded the Japanese mainland incuring severe casualties. The Japanese resisted fiercely during the invasion of Okinawa, which indicated that hundreds of thousands of lives would be lost as the Americans approached Japan itself.

    What if 9/11 never happened?

    (just to answer a question)

    the idea is that adam and eve were perfect... genetically and all. Therefore incest was possible without huge genetic defects. But the genetic code has gotten down to the point where defects appear if incest occurs.

    Stop messing up my thread. I meant this to be somewhat serious and not degenerate into one of those other idiotic threads. If you can't say anything remotely serious, stay out please.

    :lol:

    Poor Carnage tried get a serious thread going but it got ripped to pieces by the spammers... and ash isn´t even in here. I think this thread is pretty much doomed now, sorry to say.

    If you want to make a new question I´ll try to come up with an answer. I won´t touch Kennedy though, since I don´t really know the answer to that one.

    Yup.I'm starting to detest certain posters. Atleast Ash can post reasonbly coherent posts. Some of these people here just ramble on in the misguided notion that they are amusing. Just annoys me.

    And no it's not a fun game this way, it is just like that annoying spamfest the wish thread.

    This would make an absolutely fascinating show for the History channel, where historians discuss probable results of momentous events turning out differently.

    Actually there's book on that here. It's supposed to be a really good read about what military historians think would have happened if various conflicts had ended up differently.

    Edit: Another two here and here.
