I’m going to try something different this year for my long running Alternate History Thursday series. Instead of whatever story gets beamed into my mind while I sleep the night before, I will spend the entire year focused on one story. Yes, I tried it in the past, and I sometimes went back to that … Continued
The Date: December 39, 20009. The Time: 11:59 PM. The Mission: Revenge.
Common American folklore states that Thanksgiving was when the Indians helped the pilgrims from the Mayflower survive the winter. This is mostly true, however, the real history can be traced back to the colonists from Roanoke. They are the reason why this feast is celebrated, though not for what you would think. Read on, for a … Continued
I honestly hate this “holiday” Even if it’s a glorified reason to dress up in less clothes, that’s demeaning towards people haven’t you heard? In West Roanoke 1588 the remains of the original alien invaders to earth were discovered by the colonists there. The primitive colonists had no idea what this type of technology was, or … Continued
The Butterfly Effect from a few days ago, it’s still in effect today as 71 years ago Fat Man fell on the city of Nagasaki. What would have happened if that butterfly didn’t flap it’s wings? Read on for the crazy hyperbole that I came up with.

Usually there’s a special date associated with an Alternate History post, but not this time. No, this time it’s a straight up history dump of the greatest things you never knew happened because you’re not privy to that reality. This will mostly be a bullet pointed list of things that I’ve uncovered over the years … Continued
The first, and still, most dangerous and deadly nuclear accident revolves around the Chernobyl power plant in the Ukraine. Many things can be said about the accident, but I’m about to dive into an alternate theory on what caused the terrible disaster. Yes it will be outlandish. Yes it will be crass. Yes, it won’t … Continued
I’ll let the photo above speak for itself. Tonight, 27 years ago terrorists took over the Nakatomi building in Century City California. Their target, $640 million in negotiable bearer bonds. That’s amazing, even the amount of money stolen still holds up today, it’s not some piss poor $100,000 or similar, it’s well over half a … Continued
