  1. WI: Nasser lives to 72

    Inspired by this thread, which asks what would've happened if an early attempt on Nasser's life succeeded, I thought I might as well take an opposing tack and ask what would happen if Nasser lived another 20 years, making it to 72 before dying in 1990. To be sure, this isn't particularly...
  2. WI: Enver Hoxha lives to 1990

    Of all of Eastern Europe's communist dictators, Enver Hoxha stands as one of the most notorious. A brutal, paranoid hardline Stalinist, he successively broke with Yugoslavia, the Soviet Union and China because he considered them "too revisionist", effectively leaving Albania isolated from the...

    Thatcher continues to the second round despite all of her cabinet advising her not to (with the exception of peter lilley and cecil parkinson) and loses disasterously; Michael heseltine is now the new prime minister. Heseltine cabinet as I'd see it go PM: Michael Heseltine Foreign Secretary...

    What if Peter Hook died in 1987?

    What do you think would happen if Peter Hook died in 1987 (probably from overdose) just as New Order was about to release Substance. This would certainly lead to the disbandment of New Order (similar to what happened to Joy Division) but it would also affect British Dance music/Alternative Rock...

    DBWI: England didn't win the 1990 World Cup

    It was that Summer in Italy where after a brutal and violent game with Argentina in the final, England became World Champions and ended 25 years of hurt. As a Scotsman, it is one of annoyance to hear the same story be told over and over again. However in hindsight, it's probably not a bad thing...

    Is it at all possible that in 1990 during the reunification of Germany that East and West Berlin remain separate municipalities? What kind of point of divergence could and would cause something like this? How does this impact Germany today?
