Alternate Wikipedia Infoboxes VI (Do Not Post Current Politics or Political Figures Here)

I recently read a report about the rise and fall of Jorge Gonzalez. If you like the forgotten names and gimmicks of wrestling, you can remember him as "El Gigante" on WCW or "The Giant" Gonzales on WWF (Having the [in]famous storyline about Gonzales vs. The Undertaker).

But this isn't about wrestling (Because, let me be honest, he never had the skills. He tried hard, but it wasn't his destiny), it is about his basketball wing. I made this asking to myself "What if... he had the chance of play on the NBA?"

1932

Arthur Vandenberg didn’t do *nothing* as President. Some securities reform to regulate Wall Street. After the nation’s banking system completely collapsed, despite the best efforts “Bank Holidays” he induced Congress to pass legislation that would prevent another such incident. But that was too little to late for the nation, for whom the loss of the banks destroyed millions of lives. By 1936 the economy was better than it had been at the start, but only because it had been so bad.

Many Americans had lost faith in the two parties, and turned towards Socialist Norman Thomas. Had the Democrats not veered the way they did, he might have had a chance. The Republicans renominates Vandenberg, who was generally held to have a fighting chance. Especially when the Democrats made their stunning choice. A coalition of Southerners, Western Progressives, and a motley array of Northeasters and Midwesterners, narrowly made Huey Long the first true Southerner to be nominated since the Civil War. In a nod to Tammany, he chose New York Senator Copeland as his running mate, before breaking tradition and addressing the Convention Personally.

Vandenberg, the GOP, and Conservative Democrats threw everything they had at Long. The Share Our Wealth plan was Communist, they said. But Thomas’s increased stature diminished such attacks. Long was a dictator in the making. But all he promised to do was to the turn the Sedition Laws they’d been using on the people against the rich fat cats. His plans would ruin the economy. But the economy was already ruined. Vandenberg did better than Ritchie had. But it was not enough.

America voted for the man who promised to do something, anything, about the Great Depression.

So, who becomes the third victim of The Streak in this timeline? And is it a DQ?
 
Geez, it's been a month and a half or so since I made my last infobox relating to a fictional creature. Well, here's my next one, a ape and fearsome critter known as the Agropelter.

Cryptids, fictional animals and fearsome critters as real animals series

Jackalope (Lepus tempermentalus)
Unicorn (Equus monoceros)
Chupacabra (Canis vampyrus)
Hodag (Canis hodag)
Hugag (Alces hugag)
Vampire (Homo vampyrus)
Agropelter (Pongo craniofractens) (you are here)

The Agropelter (Pongo craniofractens) is an ape that is closely related to orangutans and sasquatches. It is noted for its gorilla-like face and muscular whiplash-like arms. It is also famously/infamously known for throwing wood at things it considers a threat.

The agropelter inhabits hollow trees of the conifer woods in the Northern United States and rarely touches the ground. Its habitat formerly ranged from Maine to Oregon, but with poaching, its habitat has declined significantly and can now be only found in the most isolated wooded areas of its former range.

In appearance, the apropelter is an ape larger than a chimpanzee but smaller than an orangutan. Its face is similar to that of a gorilla and has either black or dark-gray colored hair and has medium gray colored skin.

It is an omnivorous animal, subsisting on fruit, leaves, grass, honey, insects, birds, eggs and even rotten wood.

The agropelter has a famous/infamous trait of throwing wood at peoples, animals and objects that it considers a threat. Loggers during the early 1900s stated that they would hurl wooden splinters and heavy branches at them, which would sometimes lead to several of them getting injured or even killed.

As of 2020, the agropelter is listed as "critically endangered". Its population is threated by poaching (as well as being killed by loggers who viewed them as dangerous pests) and some of its forest homes were cut down. While the current population is unknown, it's likely that only a few hundred remain in the wild.

Before to finally show it, let me explain myself: It is necessary to show some examples of the darkest days of the WWF, where Vince would have... ideas (I don't know which adjective could be the best to define those days).

Let's say that Vince wanted some comical/creepy storyline for the younger audience. And that the media and W.O.N. said that it was a huge disaster and really bad, to the point of have 0 stars or even -1 stars (Not as a match, but as storyline). That Vince wanted something like "The Undertaker swears revenge to the one who ruined his victory, so he challenges them for Wrestlemania. And between the Royal Rumble and Wrestlemania, the victims are threatened by the mind games of The Undertaker."

So, this is a case where if you're asking which match is more ridiculous (The one between "Giant" Gonzales match or the match I created), I just can say "Pick your poison".

The first is the Royal Rumble 1993, the second one is Wrestlemania IX

The 1912 United States presidential election, also known as the Revolution of 1912, was the 32nd quadrennial presidential election, held on Tuesday, November 5. Former President Theodore Roosevelt, running under the newly founded Progresssive Party, defeated incumbent Republican President William Howard Taft, Democratic House Speaker Champ Clark, and Socialist candidate Eugene Debs. This election is considered a realignment election marking the beginning of the Fourth Party System.

The campaign was dominated by the gilded recession which had severely damaged the economy and the reputation of the Taft administration. This gave an unexpected boost to the Socialist party which under its regular candidate, Eugene Debs, would reach their highest share of the vote yet. The Democratic National Convention woud nominate Champ Clark who was supported by the congressional and southern establishment of the party. Clark however would prove unable to gather enough support outside of the south.

The Republican Convention was a contested one as former President Theodore Roosevelt would make a bid for the nomination. Roosevelt would campaign on a platform of political and moderate economic reforms. When Roosevelt failed to secure the nomination, he would go on to found his own political party. He ran a campaign which blamed the political establishment for the recession. Incumbent President Taft would campaign on a new style conservatism, aiming to address the economic crisis.

The election resulted in a victory for Roosevelt. He carried almost all states outside of the south and won the popular vote by almost 9%. This was the smallest share of the popular vote for any winner since 1824. This was the last presidential election to have more than three candidates win electoral votes until the ratification of the 25th amendment in 1962. As of 2020, this is the most "threesided" presidential election held in the United States.

The Siege of Copenhagen (codenamed Operation Desperat Lys) (November 19, 1812-December 11, 1812) is a military operation to capture the Danish capital, Copenhagen, in order to end Denmark's resistance against the Coalition once and for all, during the Napoleonic Wars. The Opearation is one of the final parts of the War in Denmark (1812).

After spent two months to secure Jutland and Jylland, the Coalition began their siege on Copenhagen on 19 November 1812. After fighting and siege less than one month, the Danish surrendered on December 11, ending the War in Denmark and also forced Denmark gave up the alliance with France and join the Coalition, recognize the fact that Arendelle had retaken Iceland a few months ago, while limiting the size of the Danish Army and Navy.
