  1. Playboy Vixens

    This came up in a Disney Oswald Rabbit thread. It's an interesting idea and foxes and rabbits have some crossover. Many types, though it'd be easier to show with fox tails and ears than rabbit ones. Red, Artic, Kit, etc. Smart tricksters though I doubt it comes up in the server role it might...
  2. WI: Women's Suffrage in Reconstruction States?

    Some in the Women's Suffrage movement hoped getting blacks the vote would be opening the door for women. I could see it being a good political move for Reconstruction governments. Black women getting the vote means more black votes, and white women will hopefully be loyal to the Republican...
  3. WI: U.S. Army denies 1861 resignations?

    1861 saw many future Confederate generals resigning from the U.S. military. What if the government realizes they're likely to defect instead of just sitting out the war and refuse to grant the resignations? The first question is what to do with the potential traitors they're keeping, some do...
  4. WI: U.S. Patriotism and Religion not tied together?

    "Right before taking office, Eisenhower declared, “Our form of government has no sense unless it is founded deeply in religious faith, and I don’t care what it is.” Eisenhower’s dictum was taken up by Graham, and soon going to church was more than just something for the religious, it was part of...
  5. WI: U.S. Constitution includes Canadian Invitation?

    The Articles of Confederation contain this: Article XI. Canada acceding to this confederation, and adjoining in the measures of the united States, shall be admitted into, and entitled to all the advantages of this union; but no other colony shall be admitted into the same, unless such admission...
  6. Contested 1st U.S. Election?

    In Chat Xerex made a good post: The USA was lucky to have George Washington who everyone rallied behind. You could just as easily have had each state having favorite son candidates and the whole thing devolving into someone winning with 10%. How contested could a first election be and what...
  7. WI: Congress Moves in the 1920s?

    In 1921 the House of Representatives would have increased to 483, but instead it was capped at 435 due to lack of physical space. And that some members might have lost their seats. What if Congress decides to move to a larger building instead? It would allow more room and include all the latest...
  8. WI: Interwar Chemical Deterrence?

    The fear of chemical weapons kept them from being used in WW2, but didn't manage to stop the war from starting in the first place. Is it possible for any countries to take the fear of chemical weapons after WW1 and build a defense around a strong air force and massive chemical retaliation to...
  9. WI: Europeans Cultivate Cattails?

    Typha latifolia called cattail, reedmace, and other names is a plant we have evidence was eaten in prehistoric Europe. What if Europeans manage to cultivate it?
  10. WI: A Domesticating Culture

    With various threads it's come up that cultures usually domesticate a few animals/plants, then stop even if it later turns out more potential domesticates were around but ignored. Is there any chance of a culture that takes the idea of domestication and runs with it? Trying to domesticate...
  11. WI: Spanish Introduce Camels to Americas

    In the mid 19th century the U.S. experimented with camels in the Southwest, what would be the impact of Spain trying the same idea when they first start into the deserts of northern Mexico and the Southwest?
  12. WI: More Feudal American Colonies

    I'm not sure if feudal is the right term, but it's what I could think of. On the claiming of lands in the Americas the British crown officially claims it all, then begins handing it out to their many sons, as rewards for loyal subjects, etc. So colonization of the British Americas is the...
  13. WI: Multiple Jewish States

    Over the 19th and 20th centures various suggestions for a Jewish state have come up, most never getting off the ground or everybody moving to Israel at the earliest opportunity. Could we get a TL where multiple states exist, and are encouraged by Israel? Probable intended to be an alliance...
  14. WI: Earliest Pigeon Bomb

    B.F. Skinner proposed the use of pigeons to guide bombs, and after testing they turned out to have a 55% success rate and they pecked within a quarter inch of the target on screen(don't know how that translates to precise accuracy though). Other wartime projects shelved it, and after a brief...
  15. WI: A Different Missouri Compromise

    The Missouri Compromise of 1820 established a dividing line between slave and free states, but it also established states being balanced that held until California in 1850. What if the balance is the compromise instead of a line? No state may enter the union, free or slave unless it has a...
  16. WI: A Different Church of England

    Two ideas for a different Church of England. Charles* VIII wants to make sure he doesn't have to consult anyone, so besides making himself Supreme Head of the church he also makes the monarch the chief priest as well. This lets him perform and annul his own marriages as needed. ASB since...
  17. WI: A Different Roe v. Wade

    Since various state governments are making moves against abortion this idea came up. Instead of putting together several amendments to get abortion legal thanks to a right of privacy a more direct route is taken. Anti-abortion laws are declared unconstitutional as a violation of the 13th...
  18. AHC: Continued Saving After WW2

    With the war over it was boom times as the rationing of the war went away, but is there anyway to get a compromise between conspicuous consumption and the lean times of the war? How can we continue getting people to keep collecting cans, grease, paper, and everything else that can be reused...
  19. AHC: Ruling Japanese Emperor

    Can anything be done to keep the Emperors of Japan becoming just ceremonial figure heads?
  20. WI: South Africa and Portugal Split Namibia

    At the end of WW1 South Africa is given the majority of the German SouthWest Africa mandate, but the northern 160km go to Portugal. This should cut the black population of Namibia in half, and put the entire Ovambo people in Portugese territory, while taking none of the mineral wealth from...
