The Democratic primary was a fair process & Bernie Sanders won instead of Hilary Clinton. Bernie beat Trump in 2016 & became president of the US. The country is thriving & doing pretty well thou the GOP HATES him & is doing everything they can to stop him.

Robin Williams could've been cast as the Joker in Tim Burton's Batman instead of getting screwed over by the casting director who was so set on having Jack Nicholson in the role. Williams could be particularly good at balancing the comedic and dramatic elements of the character. He really showed he could do the latter in movies like Good Will Hunting and One Hour Photo.

All thirteen colonies were found LONG before the Seven Years War (aka "The French and Indian Wars").

But that is good fodder for alternate history buffs:France winning the Seven Years war and becoming top dog over Britain among the European powers. France would have ended up owing both the Indian Subcontinent, and North America north of Mexico. The US would be French speaking and predominantly Roman Catholic today, instead of Protestant and English speaking.

Interesting. Yes. I can see Robin Williams being a comic villain like that..

Remeber I put "or" I know the 13 colonies existed before the Seven Years War. There could have been a possibility to take them before the English arrived because France first established colonies in North America in 1534. July 24, 1534 to be exact. while the English came later in 1607.

George W. Bush did win the 2000 Presidential election but became the center of a Congressional investigation that is often compared now to the Robert Mueller probe.

Joe Kennedy's support of his son John does not get JFK elected in 1960. Instead, Richard Nixon is elected our 35th president, and completely botches the Cuban Missile Crisis. Global thermonuclear war ensues, wiping out 30% of the world's population in the initial exchange, and another 60% in the subsequent nuclear winter. The 10% that remains (mostly from the southern hemisphere) faces starvation, disease, and radiation sickness for nearly 50 years before civilization returns to relative stability and a pre-steam age technology.

Then the US would have remained out of World War II.

The Nazis would have continued their dominance of the war, and perhaps have conquered all of Europe. They would have had allies in the President's chair of the United States, too.

Not a good situation for a hell of a lot of people.

Beauty And The Beast actually won the Academy Award for Best Picture, resulting in animated movies being far more respected and not simply viewed as "kid's stuff".

In 2005, Brokeback Mountain became the first LGBT film to win the Academy Award for Best Picture, therefore making LGBT films more mainstream and appealing.
