Don't know if this has been done already.
If you could change one event from history
1.What would it be?
2.How would it impact either where you live or the world?
3.What pro/cons would changing history be?

For me it would be What if Benjamin Franklin had died from his kite experiment with electricity. "noted some historians say it nevered happened while others say it did so i'm going with the latter for this topic"


I would not want to imagine a world without electricity could you imagine how different life would have been if no one manage to discover electricity.

Pro I see people being skinnier with having to cut wood for fire, and light
Con no anime

There would be way more cons to having no electricity than just no anime lol. I don't think we would have much of anything that would be functional

Without Franklin, we'd still have electricity.

I would change the moon landing and change it to the sun landing.
Because they miss and would be among the stars and the sun is the closest one.

I would make it so sex was never invented, so I can go back and invent it to teach to sexy cavewomen.

The assassination of Abraham Lincoln.

Pros:

Lincoln wouldn't have died and he would've been a two term president.
We wouldn't have gotten the lineup of idiots in the White House that followed Lincoln's death.

Cons:

Lincoln probably wouldn't be talked about as much. He'd be remembered as the president who freed the slaves and ended the civil war rather than the president who died doing that stuff. Assassination adds more to the conversation and makes people more curious to learn about the president. Just look at JFK.

If Germany were victorious thanks to our help, it probably would've prevented the rise of Hitler. There still would've been the chance for an economic collapse, but it wouldn't have been as severe as it was for the defeated Germany, and Hitler wouldn't have been able to feed off of that anger among his people.

1.What would it be?
Germany steamrolls Britain and defeats Russia by attacking in the spring. Basically, they make wiser decisions and win WW2.

2.How would it impact either where you live or the world?
I don't know. That's why I'd change history and find out.

3.What pro/cons would changing history be?
Who knows....

Exactly. Germany entered WW1 due to their treaty with Austria-Hungary. They were merely fulfilling alliance obligations they weren't that interested in it in the first place. How would Germany treat France when they had no interest in that war and both were fighting only due to alliance obligations.

I'd have Hitler's parents change his name to German for Assface. Then he wouldn't have gotten elected because everyone would have assumed him to be a joke candidate.

Pros:
-11 million people probably wouldn't have died.
-One of the largest wars in history probably would have never occurred.
-A man with the name Assface would exist.

Cons:
-I'd create a time paradox and either kill us all or send myself into an alternate universe. Then you guys wouldn't have the glory that is me.
-Assface might just change his name to something else and get elected anyway.

I wouldn't change anything. Changing something in history would change the present to such a massive extent, that it becomes a huge risk. Who knows, maybe changing even something like HItler being born would cause an even greater war than world war 2.

if i could change or prevent a historical event i would choose the dark age of scientific repression which was a time, that lasted from 400 AD to 1000 AD, where the pope of Christianity repressed science cause they believed if people asked too much they would stray away from god and they would lose their positions and power. if this would have never have happen we would be 1000 years more advance than we are today.
