  7. Idea that I desperately want people to contribute more than me since Idea wise its smart and cool but I don't have the confidence to do it

    Imagine this, a world in which "Naruto" really did exist, but Japan, in a sense to prevent situations to occur such as wars over them keeps everything quiet, as in all of Japan knows but that is it. The hidden villages are known as military bases, and the Nine Tail Attack was a fire at Military...

    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...

  13. AHC/WI Japan continues to be the high-tech, futuristic wonderland of the 1980s?

    What if by the 2010s, Japan continues to be a country that seems like to be at least 30 years ahead of the USA and Western Europe in technological development, and also completely free from the West's moral constraints, similar to its 1980s image? By the 2020s, Japan continues to be seen as a...

    AHC: Make Japan the pre-eminent superpower instead of China

    Back in the 1980’s, a lot of Americans believed that, with their technological advancements and roaring economy, Japan was poised to take over the world. Of course this didn’t happen.

    AHC: The Eighties Never End

    Given the recent cultural reflection of an Eighties revival, the challenge in this is to create a scenario in which the Eighties, with its characteristic tentative optimism, heightened Cold War tensions, and flashy consumerism, never truly ends on the night of December 31st, 1989.

    What if Pinochet won the Chilean National Plebiscite in 1988?

    As Pinochet only lost by 4% of the vote, and this could be attributed to poor campaigning by the Yes campaign, assuming Yes had a better run campaign and perhaps a poorer run campaign by No, what if Yes had won the election and Pinochet had been President until 1996? Only one other former Latin...
