  2. AHC/Plausibility Check: Scandinavian America

    Is it possible that there could be a plausible Scandinavian nation in North America that controls all of the eastern half of the US? (canada as well, maybe.) If so, what could cause it to come about? How would it evolve and get independence? Not necessary, but ideally it would have a large mix...
  3. AHC: Culturally/Linguistically Alternate Scandinavia

    Make a different culture/language rule and be the majority over most or all of Scandinavia instead of the Norse. POD may be as early as needed, though better if it affects the rest of Europe as least as possible. I'm honestly not quite sure what could do it, maybe the Saami/Finnic groups? I...
  4. AHC:Majority Non-Arabic Egypt After 1250.

    Hello Everyone. how are you today? This challenge came to my mind as I was reading the History of Mamluks(Kölemen State/Ed-Devletüt-Türkiyye) of Egypt. I thought what if Mamluks were not as Arabized or held a disdain of Arabs due to their slave status and once came to power tried to Un-Arabize...
  5. AHC: Make a Celtic-Norse Britain

    With a POD no earlier than 388 AD, make the Celts/Romano-British push away the Saxons and stay dominant over Britain, later turning into a Celtic-Norse hybrid culture. Also, how do you see a Britain like this developing?

    AHC: Ted Kennedy victory in the 1980 Democratic primary

    With a PoD no sooner than January 1st, 1980, have Senator Kennedy win the 1980 Democratic presidential primaries and subsequently the nomination. Bonus points if it's not done by simply having Carter abstain from seeking re-election.
  9. AHC - Reverse the idea that female muscle is unfeminine and unattractive

    Muscles and signs of physical strength is often considered as unfeminine and unattractive by western culture and society for a long time now. What changes after 1900 could flip this dynamic and make muscles and female strength be considered the height of femininity and attractiveness in popular...
  10. AHC/WI: Nova Scotia joins the US

    I've read that Nova Scotia, part of Canada now and British North America back then, had a large population of americans in the 1700s and may as well could have joined the AmericanRevolution, but unregulated piracy against them prevented them from considering such. its a pretty simplistic...
  11. AHC/WI: More Western/Colonial Industrialism Post-1900?

    AHC: Alternate "Israels"

    In our world, the State of Israel is notable not just as the first Jewish state in the Levant in almost 2,000 years but also in how it was formed by a diaspora which returned to its homeland in a process of aliyah, a process in which members of the Jewish diaspora migrated to Palestine as part...

  14. AHC: Earliest possible human settlement of Iceland

    In OTL the first people to make their homes in Iceland were (according to the sagas) the Irish Papar monks followed by the Norse. My question is: What is the earliest feasible date that Iceland could have been settled by humans and who could have done it? Is it possible for the Neolithic...
  15. AHC: Earlier American Revolution after the Stuart Restoration

    Your challenge, if you accept it, is to have the English colonies rebel against the restored monarchy in England. Like have the Puritans be so upset that the Commonwealth is dissolved that they rebel and set up their own country in the Americas or Oliver Cromwell or his son (Lord, help the...

  17. AHC - Normalise steroid usage in regular society

    Steroids and other PEDs are looked down on by society and outlawed in fitness and sports (even if people get caught doping all the time). The cause of this ranges from the idea of unfair play, cheating, the negative side effects. What would cause this negative perception not only not form but...
  18. AHC: Prevent a hated fictional character from becoming hated

    There are many fictional characters who audiences cannot stand. Of course, this isn't necessarily a bad thing. Some fictional characters are intentionally made to be despised. Joffrey Baratheon, Dolores Umbridge, and Carter Burke are standout examples of this. With that said, this thread isn't...

    AHC: John Lennon Leads Popular Uprising

    An AHC I’ve thought of lately POD: 1969-1971 Rules: The Beatles breakup must remain the same Lennon must lead a political party by August 1972 The party would be broadly far-left, with an overall Marxist leaning, to be socially liberal and opposed to the Vietnam War Bonus points if supporters...
  20. Save a box office bomb by changing the world instead of the film

    A lot of AHC around box office bombs focus on how changes to the film or its production could have saved it, lets do something different. Instead we will keep the film as it is and change the world around it. Lets start off with an example 1980's Can't Stop the Music. The late 1970/80's...
