1 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6377 17:30

>>2 what is the parallel universe when the Sega Master System/Sega Mark III far more popular than the Nintendo NES/Famicom?

401 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8642 14:42

>>400 Somebody invented a keyboard with enormous keys and the result was that typing with mittens became easy.

>>402 what is it like in the parallel universe where flowers and kimchi smell the same?

402 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8643 10:27

>>401 Me and my sister agree on one more thing.

>>403 What is it like in the parallel universe where polyamory is the norm and wanting your partner to exclusively have sex with you is considered weird and possessive?

403 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8643 13:50

>>402 Family lines and inheritance are predominantly matrilineal, and no one uses "bastard" as an insult.

>>404 What's it like in the parallel universe where all the websites disappeared a few days ago?

404 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8643 16:50

>>403 NEETs start a riot because there is no other way for them to communicate with others for the purpose of relieving anger.

>>405 What is it like in the parallel universe where being a NEET is impossible?

405 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8644 04:43

>>404 Since nobody wastes their life, the full power of humanity is put to use. We are scientifically advanced, though artistically conservative ("Moe" is unknown). However, sometimes a grey-coated salaryman stops on his way to the office and stares up at the sky for a moment, wondering if all this is really necessary.

>>406 What is it like in the universe where Pangaea never split?

406 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8753 07:18

>>405
Due to the spin of the earth, the massive continent becomes centered on the equator. The interior is a hot desert. Animals like reptiles thrive while mammals struggle. No mammals bigger than a rabbit ever evolve.

But let's pretend somehow humans still evolved. The harsh environment and lack of diversity keeps them stuck with primitive society and technology.

>>407
What's it like in the universe where staunch environmentalism is the norm and only small groups of activists are anti-eco? (They prefer to call themselves "pro-human")

407 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8753 20:18

>>407
Well, that only came to the forefront of public concern due to events in the first half of the 20th century. The Anum (Anti-Umwelt-Pro-Menschlichkeit) party of Germany rose to power and ended up depriving the world of some 12 million plantkin (six million of whom were evergreen trees). Long story short, there was worldwide warring and now it is illegal to hang Christmas decorations in Germany.
Some small pro-human groups decide to burn trees and shout loudly about things every so often, but luckily there are so few of them that PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Arboreal life (and other plantkin)) manage to keep things under control without the Neo-Anums getting too much news coverage.

>>409
What's it like in the universe where people get a different talent every birthday, replacing last year's talent, but don't immediately know what it is?

408 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8755 17:38

>>407
The biggest difference is that professional athletes have very short careers. However, pop idols have careers that are about the same length as they are right now.

>>409
What is it like in the parallel universe where every birth involves eugenics?

409 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8755 20:05

>>408 Everyone is white, asian or a mix thereof. The entire world is a high trust society, peaceful and law abiding, and everyone does their best, because to do less would be dishonorable. Every male child is put through a brutal coming of age test to cull the weak.

>>410
What's it like in the universe where cats have thumbs?

410 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8756 10:38

>>409
This famous Dwarf Fortress bug never happened.

>>411
What's it like in the universe where all disputes are settled with real-life danmaku battles?

411 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8757 08:42

>>410
There's a new meaning to the phrase "It's curtains for you".

>>412
What's it like in the universe where rock-paper-scissors is a recognised martial art?

412 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8847 18:10

>>411
Weebs like to talk about what animu character has the highest jan-ken-pon skills.

>>413
What is it like in the parallel universe where all Korea is South Korea?

413 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8847 19:33

>>412
Less stressful. Korea is an eastern-style republic, still cribs a lot of ideas from everyone, and they make pretty good cars and electronics.

>>414
What is it like in the parallel universe where dogs fly spaceships?

414 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8847 22:45

>>413
Humans fly spaceships shortly thereafter.

>> 415

What is it like in the parallel universe where a series of meteorite impacts suddenly flattened all nations' capital cities in 1939?

415 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8848 15:36

>>415 World War II was delayed several years because there was no furher or emperor. During the time of peace, several travel destinations had changed. Milan Italy and Manchester England are two of the most popular cities for tourists.

416 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8848 19:36

The parallel universe in which >>415 asked >>416 a question is much the same as ours, except >>416's post is more interesting.

>>417
What's it like in the parallel universe in which the words for blue and green are switched?

417 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8849 21:27

>>419
What's it like in the universe where cryptocurrencies existed before fiat currency?

419 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8850 19:42

>>418
Humanity didn't have money until computers made cryptocurrencies possible, so they made do by trading valuable resources. Also, since cryptocurrencies are more like gold than money, nothing changed with their introduction.

>>420
What's it like in the world where 420 is the time to take meth?

420 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8852 12:07

>>419
What Nazis ended up being after the war is more like rastas except with nice haircuts, hyperactive polka, and fucking terrible teeth. Because, well, Ethiopia won somehow.

>>421
What is it like in the universe where Home Alone was a crossover franchise featuring Rambo?

421 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8852 16:20

>>420 For several months, people would slap their cheeks and attempt to shout out Rambo quotes. Few people could ever make it sound as awesome as Stallone.

>>422 What is it like in the parallel universe where memes are illegal?

422 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8854 01:51

>>421
It's very similar to that one Harlan Ellison story, except that you feel more sympathetic for the Ticktockman than the Harlequin.

>>423
What's it like in the universe where memes are legal, but tightly regulated by the government?

423 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8856 16:17

>>422
Nothing happened for the first two years then the meme tax kept increasing. Now people call it "image macros" to escape the regulation.

>>424
What is it like in the parallel universe where everything is 5% more slippery ?

424 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8856 20:52

>>423
Everything is just that little bit more slippery.

>>425
What's it like in the universe where gay is contagious?

425 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8857 16:27

Mammals eventually evolved into hermaphrodites to make up for the gay virus stifling procreation.

>>426

426 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8857 17:26

>>425 Cloudy, with a chance of rain...

>>427 What's it like in the universe where humans are built in a factory? And who builds them?

427 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8857 21:58

>>426
It used to be fine, until we realised it would be cheaper to recycle old parts. Other humans build them, noone knows how it started.

>>427
Whats it like in the universe where dogs stroke people and people lick dogs?

428 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8861 17:52

>>427
Certain prudes refuse to kiss dog owners because they're worried about getting fur in their mouths.

>>429
How about the universe where this thread was never made?

429 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8861 18:20

430 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8861 21:33

Everything is normal.

>>431
What's it like in the universe without skin?

431 Name: (ijĪij) : 1993-09-8861 23:49

Everybody's Winamp looks the same and free to play games aren't making much profit

>>432
What's it like in a universe where humans have a much larger variance in size

432 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8862 13:25

>>431
Some lucky fuck is just chillinf between a pair of giant titties.

>>433
Whatfs it like in the universe where the designers of the Yu-gi-oh! OCG/TCG take measures to avoid insane power creep?

433 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8868 09:16

>>432
Although decks still have a maximum of 60 cards, five of them are reserved for Exodia in any competitive deck because he still rules.

>>434
What's it like in the universe where the Romanian Empire rules?

434 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8868 17:46

>>433 Every morning at school children stand hand-on-heart and sing Dragostea Din Tei.

>>435 It boggles my mind, but is the population in your universe really sustained by one humungous communal semen silo used to inseminate all women? It's outside my comprehension but there must be some downsides to that that I'm missing?

435 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8913 18:08

>>434 There are no downsides if the god-king's avatar, the idol of fertility and ultimate provider of the seed of life wills it. Now it is time to prepare for the harvest festival, it's time to don my ceremonial robes and provide my own seed for His will.

>>436 What's it like in the universe where human beings walk 6km/h faster on average?

436 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8913 18:25

>>435 With the extra 0.6 mph, nobody skateboards to get around.

>>437 What's it like in the universe where nobody believes in the Many Universe theory?

437 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8914 15:59

>>436 This thread is really boring since nobody can even conceive such a thing as a different universe

>>438 What's it like in the universe where left-handed people are the majority?

438 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8915 14:59

>>437
There's a lot less righteousness in the world.

>>439
What's it like in the universe without thought?

439 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8915 17:31

>>438
durrrr

>>440
wat thinky universe be?

440 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8916 14:10

>>439
It's turtles all the way down.

>>441
What's it like in the universe where it really IS turtles all the way down?

441 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8929 05:12

>>440 instead of finding the moon, the first mission into space discovered the first world turtle and things got weirder from there on.

>>442
What's it like in the universe where all of Weird Al's songs are originals and the other artists' songs are parodies?

442 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8930 21:35

>>441 Nirvana's music still doesn't make any sense.

>>443 What is it like in the universe where bullets shoot guns?

443 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8930 21:48

>>441
Weird Al was actually born centuries ago and his oeuvre remained hidden until it was discovered some decades ago when it was mined for material by the pop music industry since it was in the public domain.

>>443
What's it like in the universe where everybody has to learn about anime history in school?

444 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8931 16:31

Since people associate anime with school, many people don't like to watch it. It is much like the people in your universe who hate reading Shakespeare books because school forces them to do it. Teens love to watch K-drama more than they do in this universe, because watching K-drama feels like rebelling against school.

>>445 What is it like in the parallel universe where Elvis never died and never stopped making music?

445 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8942 23:18

>>444
All of the people who spent time theorizing about the death of Elvis had a lot of spare time. With that spare time, they all collectively researched anti-capitalist thought and spread the good word of communism. Now we produce for consumption instead of profit and nobody does work that isn't necessary.

>>446
What's it like in the universe where everybody knows that capitalism is killing humanity and still nobody does anything?

446 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8942 23:36

>>445
Only healthy, competitive and sane people survive. The neurotic and weak noncompetitive people died out long ago. On the whole, humanity is strong and happy and while it's a struggle to make one's place in the world, it's a struggle everyone embraces.

Also, the pizza is magnificent, and colleges actually teach you useful skills for your future.

>>447
What's it like in that communist paradise world you keep going on about?

447 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9013 18:16

>>446
I'd love to tell you, I really would. There is absolutely no reason for me not to do so; we are certainly not under surveillance or anything.

>>448
What's it like in a universe where there's food?

448 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9961 11:25

>>447 When people are hungry, they have a snack, no one is starving

>>449 What's it like in your universe where Gordon Ramsay never got injured training for Rangers?

449 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9961 13:14

>>448
Sosig never happened. He ended up being injury-prone throughout his entire career. Due to the wasted resources, Rangers never had the success in Europe that they have in your universe, either.
His ACL is fucking RAW!
>>450
What's like in the universe where the Raving Rabbids never faded in popularity?

450 Name: (ijĪij) : 1993-09-9961 15:15

>>449
They'd fill the niche that the Minions currently have. You'd see horrible image macros posted by geriatrics featuring the Rabids.
>>451
What's it like in the universe where all beds sold are king sized.

451 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9961 19:58

>>450
We have a saying: gNo matter how big your house is, or how flashy your car is, our beds will still be the same sizeh. Nobody really knows why it's in the future tense.

>>452
What's it like in the universe where >>442's question was answered?

452 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9977 14:30

>>451 It feels like being the center of a Russian nesting doll.

>>453 What is it like in the universe where the campaign at catgirlcare.org succeeded?

453 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-10184 20:06

>>452
It's now possible to commit pedophilia and bestiality at the same time!

>>454
What's it like in the universe where source mods are the equivalent (in abundance and ease of creation) of RPGmaker games?

454 Name: ((●)トェェェイ(●)) : 1993-09-10334 16:22

>>453
>>/1631851352/613 doesn't know what RPGmaker is!

>>455
What's it like in the universe where Squeeks is still running the show?

455 Name: ((●)トェェェイ(●)) : 1993-09-10334 18:02

>>454 Squeeks begrudgingly runs 4-ch up until day a thread titled "[Admin Abuse] ITT we accuse Squeeks of sucking shit [LOL]" manages to accumulate 999 posts in under 2 hours. It prompts 8 more parts and a few floodings of the Requests board and IRC channel, all within under a month.
Enraged, Squeeks pulls the plug on 4-ch, forcing all of DQN to immigrate to Tinychan where we proceed to squat in and permanently occupy the world4ch archives out of a lack of other options.

>>456 What's it like in the universe where >>423 asked about the universe where everything is 12% more slippery, rather than a mere 5% more slippery?

456 Name: ((●)トェェェイ(●)) : 1993-09-10334 18:24

>>455
Some dokyun made a really long post about people bumping into each other and rubbing each others' genitals just like in ero anime. I think his dick exploded.
>>457
What's it like in the universe where Alabama is the dominant world superpower?

457 Name: ((●)トェェェイ(●)) : 1993-09-10334 18:35

>>456
Habsburg inbreeding is nothing compared to what the new ruling class is up to!

>>458
What's it like in the universe where we kissed? 😳👀😳👀

458 Name: ((●)トェェェイ(●)) : 1993-09-10334 19:34

>>457 Out of all the uncountably infinite universes that exist, there is not a single one in which you kiss anyone. Well, there's that one, but in that one you get arrested shortly after...

>>459 What's it like in the universe where humans have cum-bladders for producing unfathomable amounts of cum per cum?

459 Name: ((●)トェェェイ(●)) : 1993-09-10336 14:46

>>458 Bukkake films are about the novelty of men with smaller cum-bladders having to take turns in order to properly glaze their partner, making it much more common a fetish than in our world.

>>460 What's it like in the universe where Carmen Sandiego was switched at birth with Waldo?

460 Name: ((●)トェェェイ(●)) : 1993-09-10336 17:31

>>459
It fucking sucks i cant find either of them

>>461
What's it like in the world where silk grows on plants but cotton is pooped out by little caterpillars?

461 Name: ((●)トェェェイ(●)) : 1993-09-10337 04:23

>>460
Pills are significantly more expensive due to the cotton balls on top.

>>462
What's it like in the universe where instead of the development of written language, percussion instruments were used for record keeping.

462 Name: ((●)トェェェイ(●)) : 1993-09-10338 12:56

>>461 The accepted slang for historical revisionism is "marching to the beat of a different drummer".

>>463 What's it like in the universe where geocentric astronomy was found to be literally true, and heliocentrism was persecuted into obscurity?

463 Name: ((●)トェェェイ(●)) : 1993-09-10363 10:28

>>462 What the heck is heliocentrism?

>>464 What's it like in the universe where everyone is lazy and uses ai text generators to finish their sentences?

464 Name: ((●)トェェェイ(●)) : 1993-09-10363 11:35

>>463
In the universe where everyone is lazy and uses AI text generators to finish their sentences, the sentence "I'm just trying to be a good boyfriend right now" would be written like this: "Are you okay with me dating other people right now?"

>>465
What's it like in the universe where you are okay with me dating other people right now?

465 Name: ((●)トェェェイ(●)) : 1993-09-10363 13:06

>>464
That's okay, I'm dating, like, everyone in my city.

>>466
What's it like in the universe where the South American empires drove the Spaniards out, resisted the flu and invaded Europe?

466 Name: ((●)トェェェイ(●)) : 1993-09-10365 02:44

>>465
Knowledge of the wheel faded into obscurity. The wheel was rediscovered and utilised in the Tuscan enclaves in the early 18th century, who reconquer much of Europe, Northern Africa and the Near East in the first half of that century. We landed man on the Mercury in the 50's. There, we have built pleasure domes for the elite and there have we initiated the hypnoslav breeding directive.

>>467
What is it like in the universe where bush was visiting the twin towers on 11th september 2001?

467 Name: ((●)トェェェイ(●)) : 1993-09-10365 18:19

>>466
We will never forget the tragedy of 9/12.

>>468
What's it like in the universe where cats drive people?

468 Name: ((●)トェェェイ(●)) : 1993-09-10383 09:45

>>467 The cats were way more advanced than us, having recently landed astronauts on Ceres.

>>469 What was it like playing the cancelled "Kirby GCN"?
