    Instead of the prophecy being fulfilled in a swamp in the center of Mexico, it's fulfilled in what is now the Mexican city of Nuevo Laredo. Right across the border from Laredo, Texas. During an expedition north by the Aztec empire. What if a city the size of Mexico City (which is the capitol...

  11. ASB WI: In 2001 United States successfully predict cost of 20 year war in Afghanistan as $978 billion and decide to pay the Taliban instead!

    A few days ago I saw a tweet from a disgruntled individual bemoaning the American 'failure' in Afghanistan.

  20. AHC: Make “Mulatto” or a similar term a realistic racial category in the United States

    Pretty much as it says on the tin. With a POD at 1800, make “Mulatto,” or a similar term denoting a person of mixed European and African ancestry a realistic racial category in the United States, chosen by a large number of people, outside of the standard “White,” or “Black”.
