    Hell or Highwater: Buddy Cianci and the Decade of Malice

    What is this? A timeline where an underrated figure from Rhode Island becomes president. His name is Buddy Cianci. At one point he was considered a rising star in the Republican Party so I got an idea. Why? I got bored at school. How long will this last? Hopefully until I finish it or get...

    WI: Slanted Text Designs and Logos and 70s/80s nostalgia die off in the 90s

    Is it possible for them to die off in the 90s and replaced by a new kind of trend like having more minimalistic and simple designs being popular and the designs and culture introduced in the 90s and 2000s to persist.

    Longer American Post-War Economic Boom

    What would happen if the post war economic boom in the USA ended in the early 80s instead of the early 70s of OTL. Maybe the US invests a lot in civilian nuclear power and public transportation so the oil shock doesn’t hit the US as hard, or maybe the USD is devalued in the 50s so the US has a...

    AHC: President Steve Garvey

    As the tin says, your challenge is to make Steve Garvey, the former NL MVP, and late 70s, early 80s baseball legend, the President of the United States.

    Absolute worst 70s recession can get?

    The 1973-75 recession differed from other recessions in that both inflation and unemployment rose, known as stagflation. Among the causes included the '73 Oil Crisis and the fall of the Bretton Woods system, and the effects of the recession could be felt from Nixon to Reagan. Now, I'm...

    AHC: Keep Disco From Happening

    Keep the disco movement from happening and saturating the 70's with synth beats using any means possible as long as it only changes the music industry (No "America loses WWII.") Also, bonus points if your PoD is after 1970. How I would go about it is have AIDS/HIV become a larger problem...

    McGovern Assassinated in '72?

    So, I was reading the Wikipedia article about Arthur Bremer, the would-be assassin of George Wallace, for historical interest (by the way, his story, while nasty and dark, would make a great movie). Now, it's a matter of common knowledge (on AH.com, at least) that he first thought about killing...
