Posted:........ Well basically I'm sitting here listening to Fireworks go off. I don't like the damn things. They scare me. It stems back to a childhood fright involving fireworks.

....If that Guy Fawkes had just planned his gunpowder plot a bit better or not bothered at all we wouldn't have to endure this every year. Although I guess we would have come up with another reason to set fire to explosives with glitter in. So maybe it wouldn't have changed anything much.

So what other famous incidents in History, if they had gone the other way, would mean life would be so different for us today. How do you think it would have turned out?

Keep it light hearted please this is only meant as a bit of fun. ubbrollsmile

I don't think so. An assasination attempt is an assasination attempt. I'd get pretty pissy if I got shot at.

If they hadn't been greedy bar stewards they probably wouldn't have had tea to stay at home with.

What if Henry VIII hadn't have been a womanizing wierdo?
What if Ghandi had had a nasty violent streak?
What if the Pope wasn't catholic? eek

After much consideration, I find that the view is worth the asphyxiation.

What if we never invented the microchip? No modern washing machines, valve television, no microwaves, no VCRs and DVDs, no video survellance....

What if we'd never discovered what crude oil could be used for? no plastic - bottles, syringes, drips, heart monitors, synthetic fibres, detergents, steam powered everything, no kerosine or petrol etc., no vaseline.....
And we're running out of it!!!
