[Quantum theory] ITT we send the next poster to a parallel universe and they tell us about it [go] (468)

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?

86 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6426 06:03

>>85
Huge quantities of toothpicks are wasted on a daily basis. Deforestation is a huge problem.

>>87, how's the universe where there's always a rainbow in the sky?

87 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6426 07:09

>>86 They've lost their charm.

yeah so >>88 everyone's head is a musical instrument? How does THAT work?

88 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6426 08:54

Well, >>87, most people are good at playing themselves, but the most interesting relations arise between people who are good at playing others. The only problem is some people's heads are higher quality instruments than others, so there's lots of discrimination and prejudice.

Also, being born with a piano for a head is a curse.

>>89, how's it feel to live in a universe where semen is both healthy and delicious?

89 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6426 12:55

Chew fed deaf da logo!

90 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6427 00:09

>>88 The birth rate is low because having semen put up a vagina in that universe is considered as wasteful as using a fine wine as a douche in this universe.

>>91 what is the universe like in which smoking cigarettes makes people live 10 years longer?

91 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6443 00:36

>>90 All the now almost-immortal people have retreated to underground cities with the last remaining supplies of clean air, because Earth's atmosphere is now 70% second-hand smoke.

>>90, what's it like in the universe where the MPAA is exclusively dedicated to porn movies, and the only movies without sex scenes are made in Europe and Japan?

92 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6447 20:56

>>91 Americans would have to entertain themselves by re-creating scenes from Jackass in real life.

>>92 What is the universe like in which with enough martial arts training, one can fly, fire Kamehameha beams, power up and do various other things from Dragon Ball Z?

93 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6448 00:39

>>92, it's devoid of life more complex than blue-green algae. It seems that since every intelligent tool-using life form sooner or later comes around to the idea of martial arts, then spawns some chucklefuck who destroys the planet with a super-focused-hiryu-shoten-ha-kamehameha attack in a fit of pique at his ex-girlfriend.

>>94, what's it like in the universe where Beady Eyes doesn't derail threads?

94 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6448 23:35

>>93 ( E-E) It is unbearable.

>>95 ( E-E) What's it like in the universe where this thread was derailed?

95 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6449 00:54

>>94 We just got on with our lives.

I must say I'm quite envious of you >>96, living in a universe where all music is free and legal, and musicians do it for the love rather than dreams of fame and fortune. Surely there's a downside?

96 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6449 01:09

>>95 at least in this version of this universe, all musicians live in abject poverty, instead of just most of them.

>>97 Any difference in taste between the universe where chlorophyll is purple and this one?

97 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6465 14:51

>>96, the Purple People Eaters have an easier time sneaking up on us if we go outdoors without our thermal vision goggles.

>>98, what's it like in the universe where the average IQ is forty points higher?

98 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6465 22:16

>>97 We don't have *chan sites here, sorry.

>>99 What's it like in the universe where humans don't have penises and mate the way birds do?

99 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6466 03:09

>>98 Penises seem unnecessarily intrusive. Also, a whole lotta scissorin' goin' on.

>>100 What's it like in the universe where cats have thumbs?

100 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6466 03:55

>>99 Cat thumb-wrestling is a fairly widespread but heavily policed sport. Awareness groups exist that try to scare people with images of fist-locked cats, while surrounding them crowds of poorly dressed third-worlders shout and whoop while holding paper bills. Also cat-sized pet-doors have been replaced with cat-sized upright doors complete with working doorknobs.

>>101 What's it like in the universe where audiophiles prefer cassette tapes to vinyl?

101 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6467 03:35

>>100 In one way it's great, no-one gives a shit about FLAC and there was never a loudness war, but on the other hand all audio engineers are obsessed with compressing music and most remixes just consist of the song being pitch shifted about then breaking about half-way in.

>>102 What's it like in the universe where whisky tastes like orange juice?

102 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6467 10:01

103 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6467 20:03

>>102, We all still live in caves, which are the only stable shelter from the elements because they were not built in the first place.

>>104, what's it like in the universe where everyone has his own dramatic theme music?

104 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6467 22:07

>>103 It's sometimes cool when someone enters the room, but shopping malls have to provide free earplugs. Also, concerts and gigs simply don't exist here.

>>104 What's it like in the universe where light and darkness have swapped places?

105 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6467 22:38

>>104 Whatever you can imagine it being like, would be an understatement

Over in your fingers-contain-marker-pens universe >>105. What's it like? Is it on? Is it off? Reply!

106 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6468 17:48

>>105, there's graffiti EVERYWHERE.

>>107, what's it like in the universe where, instead of introducing hot peppers to the Szechwan province of China in the early 19th Century, Christian missionaries had convinced the local people to begin cultivating oats instead?

107 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6469 10:54

>>106 The Chinese version of the Quaker Oats Man looks hideous.

>>108 What is the universe like where the Ninja Turtles TV show never existed?

108 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6470 12:47

>>107
Ninja Turd what??

>>108
What's happening in the world without itchy bum?

>>110 Cigarettes are healthy over there? What's that like?

110 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6470 15:18

>>109 read thread >>91 and remember that. I gave up smoking because I didn't feel like living in that terrible place anymore.

>>111 What is the universe like where people can telepathically change the way they smell?

111 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6471 00:16

>>110 Teenage boys smell even more like dried semen

>>112, what's it like in the Universe where Paul Robeson is still alive and kicking?

112 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6643 01:16

>>111 The Manic Street Preachers have a few better songs

>>113 what's it like where the etiquette and sort of social norms here on /dqn/ are actually how everyone acts IRL and vice versa?

113 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6643 15:48

>>112 I'll just say that everyone and everything smells of rancid semen, until you get to the basement rooms where the PCs are set up, which are surprisingly clean and pleasant.

>>114, what's it like in that timeline where the thing that does the stuff actually works and does the stuff that here it doesn't so much?

114 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6643 20:22

>>113
4chan is great and DQN is awful. Being a NEET has allowed me to have a nice house and a lot of drugs.

>>115
Tell me about the alternate universe where Korea is the center of nerd culture rather than Japan.

115 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6643 21:01

>>114
<˜€MΝL> kekeke, this universe is infinitely superior nida. Everybody is talking about the new manhwa, and fat American housewives watch K-drama instead of soap opera nida. But choppari still not give us our apology juice nida.

>>116
<˜€MΝL> What is it like in the universe where we actually got our apology juice ni-ka?

116 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6644 02:29

>>115 Other nations start demanding their own apolojoice immediately after Korea gets their apolojuice.

>>117 What is the alternate reality where all 50 States in the USA are exactly like California?

117 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6663 04:10

>>116 I don't know, really - in that universe, I live in Canada and don't read the news much.

>>118 What's it like in the slightly alternate universe where Jello brand lemon pudding tastes like lemons and not Fruit Loops?

118 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6669 03:20

>>117 We all forgot the name of that bird that advertises Fruit Loops.

>>119 What is it like in the universe where easy modo does not exist?

119 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6669 17:39

>>118 In the West being a gamer is considered a mental disorder in all but name, in Japan and Korea, everyone under the age of 60 either weights less than 6 stone or more than 30, arthritis is a largely ignored epidemic, the economy and class system is largely based on Tohou speedruns ever since society had to rebuild itself after the great Starcraft scandal of 2010 and Daigo is pretty much treated as the unofficial emperor of Japan, which really doesn't make much difference to his lifestyle.

>>120 What is it like in the universe where procrastination does not exist?

120 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6670 03:53

>>119 shit gets DONE

>>121 what's it like in the universe where everything goes really great for me and good stuff just sort of happens and i never feel bad? oh never mind that's this universe haha

121 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6687 12:21

>>120 WTF?

>>122 What is it like in the universe where steampunk is as efficient as all other forms of energy?

122 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6687 15:05

>>121, >>120 has OBVSLY tapped the power of TANASINN.

Also, in the universe where steampunk stuff actually works and is practical, an enormous clockwork golem went on a rampage in Paris last week, clanking about the city smashing things, naturally immune to bullets and cannonballs due to its massive riveted armor, and only stopped mid-frenzy because its AI computer got a tiny thin bit of onionskin paper jammed between two of its gears, causing it to jam and halt. And a mysterious madman calling himself Doctor Malice is besieging Schenectady, New York with an army of mechanical beetles, demanding "one meelion dollars" ransom to spare the city. It kind of sucks here, actually. It's dangerous and dirty, and the fact that all the women wear brass-boned corsets and tiny top hats does not quite compensate. Not every woman has the figure for a corset, you know.

>>123, what's it like in the universe where the Internet bridged cultural gaps and made the world more peaceful and democratic back in the 90s, as we all hoped it would, instead of being taken over by the corporations and turned into basically another kind of television?

123 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6688 13:27

>>122 The internet is mostly full of crappy Geocities pages.

>>124 What is it like in the universe where all voice synthesizers sound like real voices?

124 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6688 16:22

>>123, my ROFLcopter no longer goes "soi, soi, soi." ;_;

>>125, what's it like in the universe where professional singers all sound like Vocaloids?

125 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6688 19:09

>>124 People lik Lady Gaga and Katy Perry and Ke$ha are famous pop stars with multiple chart hits.

>>126 What's it like in the universe where people never say the wrong thing?

126 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6689 02:33

>>125 We reached moral and technological zenith ages ago and now spend our infinite quota of time entertaining ourselves in an infinite processor-space where, sometimes, things aren't as perfect as they were for us.

>>127 What's it like in the universe where humanity has always and will always possess the immovable conviction that penguins are somehow the most divine creatures in existence?

127 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6689 15:33

>>126 Enormous temples, shrines, and churches are built on Antarctica, and many people travel there because it is the most holy thing to do.

>>128 what is it like in the universe where motivational posters don't exist, but demotivational posters do exist?

128 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6699 14:09

>>127 Humanity has peacefully ended. Thank you!

>>129 What's it like in the universe where insightful online commentary is considered the highest artform?

129 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6699 15:27

>>128, it's amazing. Squeeks just won the Nobel Peace Prize for creating 4-ch.

>>130, what's it like in the universe where 4chan never suffers a DDoS, no matter how often m00t leaves to make soup?

130 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6699 16:20

>>129 4chan still is, always has been and always will be - in this universe and every other - shit.

>>131 What's it like in the universe where incorrect spelling and grammar are punishable by death?

131 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6699 18:07

>>130 Governments have conjunctive prescriptivist-execution departments designed for the sole purpose of dealing with rogue squads of publishers who write and distribute whole anthologies rewritten to be as grammatically incorrect as possible. The Internet was shut down very quickly, and no new written material is ever published except by authorized facilities whose works are thoroughly scrutinized for their purity. Speech is, for most, the sole method of communication, and a tentative one at that. The once beautiful sprawling progression of languages worldwide has been halted to a standstill.

>>132 What's it like in the universe where Ron Paul Ron Paul?

132 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6700 01:03

>>131,
We met him on a Monday and our hearts stood still,

 Da doo run Ron Paul, da doo run Ron

And then we learned he'd veto almost every bill,

 Da doo run Ron Paul, da doo run Ron

YEAH, he's not afraid to act
YEAH, he'll cut the income tax
YEAH, he'll knock Obama flat

 Da doo run Ron Paul, da doo run Ron

>>133, what's it like in the universe where I actually came up with something original instead of ripping off Spitting Image without even giving proper attribution? I'm a right bastard, I am.

133 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6700 01:29

>>132 You are Lady GaGa's backup singer.

>>134 what is it like in the universe where the financial incentive to do stuff doesn't exist?

134 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6700 02:05

>>133 It's like a world-wide Cabrini Green, except with less crime and more lying around like useless sacks of shit.

>>135 What's it like in the universe where governments never spend more than they take in?

135 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6708 21:40

>>134, it's very peaceful. They have decided that war is too wasteful expensive. The roads aren't always well-maintained, but maybe they'll have the money to fix those next year.

>>136, What's it like in the parallel universe where the US remained isolationist and stayed out of all the global struggles of the 20th and early 21st Centuries and maintained neutrality and friendly relations with all powers to the best of its ability?

136 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6708 21:55

>>135 The US never became a major world superpower. The British Empire was re-established, and currently covers more than 40% of Earth's landmass. People drink more tea on average.

>>137, What's it like in the universe where irrefutable proof has been found that the world is going to end at the end of 2012?

137 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6708 22:06

>>136, everyone is panicking, except for that world's three DQNs, who are striving to get this thread up to 999 posts before the end of the world, but we are not sanguine about our chances.

>>138, what's it like in the world where fast food consists mainly of rapidly-assembled chicken or peanut butter sandwiches on whole wheat bread, served with a salad or a paper cup of steamed vegetables, and other healthy low-fat fare, instead of the greasy stuff to which we have become accustomed here?

138 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6710 22:35

>>137
Greasy food is a delicacy. Fried chicken costs $30 a pound and it's very hard to get outside of luxury restaurants. On the other hand, life expectancy is 100 years and everyone's slim, except the extremely wealthy... I can't say I'd rather have it any other way (though I do wish I could get my hands on greasy food more easily)

>>139
What's it like in the universe of the last animated show you watched?

139 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6711 14:35

>>138 one out of 3 people are huge nerds.

>>140 what is it like in the parallel universe where hornets and wasps don't exist?

140 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6711 14:54

>>139 I'm a very happy bunny! The birds etc. that feed on wasps in your universe carry on regardless by preying on the larger number of insects normally preyed on by wasps in your universe

>>141 What's it like in the universe where all companies are genuinely aiming to make people happy and provide good service rather than make a profit?

141 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6711 19:15

>>140
It's a communist utopia. The good kind, not the Animal Farm kind.

>>142
What's it like in the universe where everybody has telepathy?

142 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6712 01:36

I knew you were going to ask that, >>141.

>>143, what's it like in the parallel universe where /dqn/ is as popular as /b/?

143 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6712 01:49

>>142
Remember when /dqn/ was good? I do. And it still is, actually. The fact that imagery is restricted to archaic but creative ASCII alternatives drives the userbase towards a more unique identity, even if at the heart of it we're just a sort of an English /news4vip/. It's heartwarming to think that all the time us five spent here wasn't entirely for naught... that somewhere, somehow, the cry for QUALITY reached the souls of every dokyun in the world, bringing them happily together.

>>144
What's it like in the universe where math doesn't make any sense and, for some reason, everyone really enjoys wearing paper cranes on their head?

144 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6714 18:13

Greater than greater than one four three
Sorry, what's with this weird blue text you keep putting before paragraphs? I can understand the individual symbols, but it doesn't mean anything to me. I should just put my lucky purple crane on my head, it always cheers me up.

Greater than greater than one four five
What's it like in the universe where sausages are used in place of money?

145 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6714 18:14

What's it like in the universe where cats can sing instead of purr?

147 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6714 18:37

>>146
The internet has a lot more cat videos than in your universe.

>>148
What's it like in the universe where hallucinogenic substances are generally accepted and regularily used by most people?

148 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6714 21:53

>>147
It's a bit hard to tell what it's like in the actual universe. Assuming such a thing as objective reality exists, that is. Duuuude.

>>149
What's it like in the universe where there is no such thing as communication errors nor misinterpretations?

149 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6715 15:41

>>148
Very slightly more efficient and very slightly less exciting.

>>150
What's it like in the universe where catgirls are real?

150 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6715 15:59

>>149, Feline-Americans are poor a minority with a seemingly insurmountable problem with drugs and crime and are ruthlessly exploited by corporations and the prison system, keeping them in a perpetual spiral of ignorance and poverty.

>>152 There are brothels, except they are where you go to get one woman who you will only have sex with your entire life.

What is it like in the universe where Toyota never stopped building affordable RWD compact cars that were like the AE86?

154 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6716 16:42

>>153
Toyota, as a business, is slightly more successful.

Technological progress has been crippled, much like in your universe's Safehold series of SF novels.

What's it like in the universe where the Japanese History Textbook Controversy sparked a full-blown war between Japan, China and both Koreas?

156 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6719 17:51

>>155 Japan? Oh, you mean the antiquated name for Corea Island.

>>157, what's it like in the universe where everyone is civil and reasonable on the internet but a smug jerk in real life?

157 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6719 18:26

>>156
Quite unpleasant, I don't think you'd enjoy a visit. Mind you, meetings at the office becoming a smugness circlejerk does grow on you.

We momentarily prioritize the investigation of strange, youkai-infested extra dimensions over space travel. Several million die, and a million-odd more spontaneously transmogrify into young girls with catastrophic superpowers. The structure of global politics changes drastically as nuclear arsenals and intelligence gathering technology are rendered all but obsolete, causing treaties, trade and foreign policy to change at the whim of grown adults with curiously immature temperaments. Society as a whole gravitates back to an institution of slavery as those with powers forcibly coerce those without them.

Very soon, however, Earth becomes overrun with strife, and we are once again drawn to extraterrestrial environments for resources and population management. Each habitable planet becomes a sort of Gensoukyo in itself, replete with "shrine maidens" monitoring them inward and out. Supernatural young girls are stationed in space as Holy Guards. Interstellar trade does not develop - or if it does, remains highly volatile due to both unfit technology and sparse demand.

Also, "bullet hell" becomes a galaxy-wide sport.

What's it like in the universe where the strong nuclear force is ten times stronger than ours?

180 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6754 22:43

>>179 Over 95% of the universe's available hydrogen was converted to helium and heavier elements in the first hundred million years after the Big Bang, making hydrogen, and therefore water, exceedingly rare in this universe. Life as we know it never evolved. Tens of billions of years into the existence of this universe, with its bloated, dim red suns and sterile dusty rockball planets, fragile and delicate life based on the unique properties of liquid helium did occasionally evolve in a few appropriately sheltered locales, always of course unable to tolerate temperatures higher than a fraction of one degree Kelvin. Occasionally this life eventually achieved intelligence, in the sense that they were able to perceive themselves and their environments and solve problems that arose, but never left the shelter of its cold rocky worlds far from their primaries, never made complex tools, never indeed even developed in the numbers for complex societies or civilizations to develop. And not much changed between then and the heat death of that particular universe, at the age of only thirty or forty billion years.

244 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6794 10:18

>>243
They're actually considered more "depraved", as "nerdy" carries intellectual connotations. In any case, the entertainment industry as a whole is akin to pornography, and we do not speak about such things in public.

>>248 What is it like in the universe where China and Japan switched places?

249 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6795 20:42

>>248
I'm going to assume you meant their populations rather than respective geographies.

Chinese industry is heavily impeded by recurring earthquakes along the north-eastern coast, forcing manufacturers to relocate further south. Given such a small area and disadvantageous location, however, it is reticent to maintain commercial operations and shifts swiftly to military fortification. Political and racial turmoil between Japanese and North Koreans causes heavy militarisation of the former southern Chinese border. Much of Europe comes to Japan's aid in attempting to pacify the embittered, enraged North. Russia remains outwardly indifferent while secretly entertaining the notion of Chinese/North Korean alliance, given promises of an increased nuclear arsenal, technological competence, and its strategic location above the entirety of Eurasia. North Korea, in a bid for land, resources and substantial manpower, abolishes the DMZ and easily convinces the South to become part of the DPRK. Parts of the northernmost Southern Pacific are conquered jointly by China and Korea to establish a stronger commercial industry and some weapons production.

It's all fucked up.

256 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6806 03:06

>>255
All manner of graphical tomfoolery never had the chance to arise from the powerhouses of modern video cards. As a result, information is still presented with the least possible distraction and computer games have become increasing complex puzzles which offer far more challenge than their present counterparts. I suppose we're better off as a society for it.

>>257
What's it like in the universe where Elizabethan values still hold true?

257 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6826 08:47

>>256
The progress of modern medicine has ground to a hault before truly starting, and thus the vast majority of people still rely on apothecaries for remedies to ailments. Also, everyone wears really scratchy, starched-up clothes and it's terribly uncomfortable.

268 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6827 18:45

>>267
People still complain about loading times, because the primary result of plugging a that powerful computer straight into the human nervous system is an infinitely short attention span.

>>269
What's it like in the universe where all planets are lenticular rather than spheroid?

269 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6828 01:54

>>268 Nobody lives on the concave side, because when the concave side faces the sun, it focuses the energy, making it hot as hell.

>>270 What is it like in the alternative universe where no religions believe in the existence of Hell?

270 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6829 00:03

>>269
There's no heaven, either, and that's because the concepts of "good" and "evil" are unknown to us. We have a moral system that works on axes of efficiency and pleasure and it seems to work out quite well. Children are seen, and not heard. Trolling is an offense punishable by death. I'm a heroin tester and prostitute inspector. I am living in your dreams.

The Kirby games gained popularity at an astronomical rate. Within a week of the first release, it was the most popular game on the market. Within two months, at least 40% of every demographic/age group was playing it. Nine months later Kirby was elected president of the United States. Several disorganised cults sprang up in His honour, followed by an organised religion known as Kirbyism. Now, in the year 2012, every single member of the human race worships Kirby and spends at least two hours per day playing Kirby games. Life is good.

What's it like in the universe where computers and robots are given the same basic rights as humans?

273 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6865 11:53

>>272
Programmers who create infinite loops are given long prison sentences without the possibility of bail. Also, cars take a lot longer to build because of the robot unions mandating that working hours and break times for robots be just as long as for humans.

>>274
What's it like in the universe where all branches of government in every human nation have been left in the hands of AIs and robots controlled by said AIs for the past twenty years?

274 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6865 13:53

>>273
On the one hand, we're a lot more efficient now that we don't occupy ourselves with a political circus of liars and charlatans jockeying for votes. On the other hand, the AIs regard us as resources to be used and managed just like all the rest, farming us in eugenic breeding programs, and if two of them go to war over resources/territory, you might end up being sent on a real-life Zerg rush. Draft dodging? Expect some robotic enforcers to show up at your door.

>>275
What's it like in the world where humankind has uploaded its consciousness into robotic bodies, leaving the frailties of flesh behind?

275 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6866 11:21

Turns out that being inside a robotic body severely hampers creativity, so the new society of immortal robots just sits there, doing regular maintenance on their bodies but basically stagnating.

>>276
What's it like in the universe where Japan was invaded and large parts occupied by Chinese communists during World War II, and the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki was carried out by Japan's American allies in order to destroy the most fortified Chinese bases on Japanese soil?

278 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6866 15:21

279 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6866 17:38

280 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6866 18:29

Most parts of the Earth were destroyed decades ago when world leaders launched powerful bombs that ran on little wooden treadmills and a few centilitres of water. Now only licensed thermodynamicists are allowed the knowledge of how to build them. Unfortunately, thanks to the ease of generating unlimited electricity, food, and water, thermodynamicist is the only occupation left.

>>281
What's it like in the universe where (GNU/)Linux is the most popular operating system?

281 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6866 19:21

>>280
There are five distributions for every computer user on the planet, all steadily growing towards mutual incompatibility. Companies have given up trying to release "Linux versions" of their software, and instead specialize on making software for maybe a dozen different distributions. It's like the old DOS/Mac OS divide times a couple billion.

>>282

What's it like in the universe where no one ever immigrated to North America?

284 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6890 11:34

>>283
North America has a pristine ecosystem, unspoiled by even Homo erectus immigration. Mexicans and Russians have occasionally mounted expeditions there, but the many large predators kept them away. Europe is mostly torn apart by religious warfare, although France has become something of a global refuge for atheists. Australian aborigines number less than four hundred, and continue to be threatened by their British conquerors if they refuse to convert to Anglicanism.

>>284
What's it like in the universe where the recent drive by fundamentalist Christian Conservatives to boycott Facebook and Google has led to the creation of a wholly separate Conservative Internet, running on its own root nodes, data centers and cabling, with Conservatives refusing to connect to anything on the old Internet anymore?

285 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-6895 01:01

>>284 The Conservative Internet means as much to the regular internet what Christian Rock bands mean to to music scene. This bothers investors on the Conservative Internet, so they always try new ways to limit the regular internet.

Doesn't it make you want to wear a pair of reversing glasses? (Which is rather futile, because your brain would adapt in a course of a week)

What is it like in the parallel universe where Hitler and the Nazis moved to Arctic/Antarctic, and by this moment they built huge and prosperous bases under the ice?

317 Name: ( ˃ ヮ˂) : 1993-09-7211 15:47

>>316
A few generations after Hitler and all his right-hand-men died off, the anti-semetic aspects of nazism were abandoned and only the desire to rebuild Germany into a great and prosperous land of peace remained. However, Germany had, by this time, abandoned the bases, so they declared independence. The Arctic base actually eventually was annexed by Canada due to some difficulties in surviving on its own and is now just a research facility. The Antarctic base, however, became the capitol city of the National Socialist Republic of New Germany, which was a major player in the Cold War but collapsed in the early 80's. It has since become the Democratic Republic of Antarctica, a tentative ally of the United States and a major importer of its popular culture.

Well, according to Wikipedia, one sperm sample on average gives rise to 0.1–0.6 children, so at that rate the human race would just die out before it even began. But for the sake of this thought experiment, let's assume humanity has found another way to procreate.

The most wealthy countries simply give all males surgery to prevent ejaculating at birth. In other countries men are taught to practice orgasm denial at a young age. And in some places, fundamentalists build a religion that completely prohibits horniness and porn. Real male sperm is a very rare commodity found only on the black market. Men are often considered the "weaker" sex.

>>371
Well, that particular timeline diverged when the American atomic bomb project failed. So without a superweapon to end the war, the Japanese never officially surrendereed, though eventually their government and society collapsed. The Americans, and eventually the British and Russians, just kept mass-firebombing Japanese cities for years after 1945. They were running out of targets and bombing rural small villages by 1948 or so. Over 80% of Japan's civilian population died.

In 1952 the USSR pulled its occupying armies from what would have become North Korea for an invasion of Japan which experienced only modest resistance. They annexed the islands, and over the next generation tried to recreate Japanese society in their own image.

The Japanese Soviet Socialist Republic declared independence after the USSR collapsed in 1991, and is now this world's version of North Korea--isolated, backwards, run by a paranoid and ruthless personality-cult dictatorship whose official ideology is "Autarukiimarukusu shugi," or "Self-Sufficient Marxism." Japanese refugees give horrifying accounts of famine and brutality when they reach Korea or Taiwan.

There was never a North Korea in this timeline; the Korean peninsula is a unified, highly industrialized nation with its capital at Inchon, and every decade or so there is a fad for Korean cuisine in the English-speaking world.

What's it like in the parallel universe where time travelers from the 22nd Century accidentally ended up in 1969 and became advisors to the Nixon Administration?

373 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-7606 08:05

>>372
Their first action was to attempt to speed humanity's exodus from the cradle of Earth. Given three weeks, they were able to deliver NASA a refresher course in historic rocketry that advanced the Apollo program by decades, and which resulted in a greatly advanced lunar landing that year, fulfilling a certain promise which had been laughably unkept in their home timeline. They could do no more, the necessary futher steps being known only as footnotes in high school physics textbooks of the future.

Unfortunately, the travelers' attempts at rectifying social problems were less well-received. A few wars were averted, but arguably worse actions were taken, and the unified world government remains (at least, so it appears) in the dim recesses of the mid 22nd Century. Even worse(?), Nixon severely underestimated how quickly the future would change and took took too many political risks for his legacy's sake - risks that his advisors were helpless to protect him from.

Furthermore, by giving space travel an unexpected kickstart, the travelers unintentionally removed parts of the vital learning process, stunting future growth. Combined with an altered political climate, technological focus quickly shifted into silicon and information systems. Instead of a 21st century with silver-finned rockets and a deadly Martian frontier, the travelers lived to see a world of interwoven fiberoptic cables and ubiquitous computer systems.

The urbanisation is mindboggling. People live in huge skyscrapers that grow around large railroad hubs. They combine business, market and living districts. The majority of population is between the hammer and the anvil, that being railroad tycoons and farmers. Some people die without ever stepping outside.
Roads to these cities are mostly used by villagers who choose sturdy and easy to repair vehicles. They are filthy rich, nonetheless, without them big cities would descend into disorder and rule of the strongest within days.
Railroad is the fastest way of travelling, but an incredibly costly one - maintenance and greed taking their toll. There is a railroad lobby that assures monopoly by campaigning about the dangers of oxidane or thwarting development of flying machines behind the scenes. And inability to make even a single good landing strip isn't helping it to grow beyond small agricultural aviation.

Gonzo did it. It flopped mid-season. It caused massive riots because fans wouldn't stand for such an impure fan-service-filled display of their favourite characters, and the general populace didn't understand it and wrote it off as some porn that took forever to get to the action. The chaos caused by this anime resulted in a few assaults, one murder, at least one arson and countless broken windows and overturned cars.

ZUN was accused of becoming a sell-out. He had to give a sincere apology and work extra hard on the next instalment in order to restore faith in him. This eagerly-awaited game still hasn't been released to this day. Rumours are that ZUN have been seen in bars all over Japan often in contradicting, physically impossible times. It's a mystery!

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.

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.
