I had this book once, right, called “What if?: military historians imagine what might have been” in which… erm, military historians imagine what new twists and turns history might have taken had the circumstances of various events been different.
- What if the seige of Jerusalem in 701BC had gone differently? Would Christianity and Islam be the way they are now?
- What if Hitler had been killed in WWI? What if he’d won WWII?
- What would the world be like today had the Cold War ended differently?
This video from Some Grey Bloke made me laugh. What if Pharaoh had just said to Moses, “Okay, off you go then!”?
Oddly, Pharaoh reminds me of Noel Fielding. Incidentally, Noel Fielding shares the same birthday as my granny and her twin sister.
