    Yeah, you don't fit into that quote, must be why you're a schmuck working 8 to 5 like the rest of us *laughs*

    Yoshi thats not a good idea, by changing history you might never become, for instance if you told America that Pearl Harbour was about to be bombed, they'd move their ships and possibly never join the war.

    It would be much better to do something like Jakk wants and simply observe not alter.

    ...yea, and if we killed hitler before he came to power, then J. Edgar Hoover would have become president and all the men in the United States would be forced to wear dresses

    If we had of killed Hitler Germany would probably have imploded on itself around the 1930's and God know what would have sprung up in Hitlers place...it could have been even worse

    If Hitler gets assassinated, Stalin will become the next tyrant.

    I've often wondered how the Custer tradgedy of 1876 in Montana unfolded.

    It would be exciting to go back to the beginning and witness the 'Big bang'.

    Stalin WAS the next tyrant anyways. If there had been no Hitler its highly likely that Germany would have fallen under the controll of the Spartacists and KPD around about the time Hitler came to power in the real world, as such it would probably have been unable to maintain itself given Germanys economic situation at the time and become absorbed into Russia as another outpost of Communism and would probably fall under the control of Stalin

    There was only one Manfred Von Richthofen



    Doug Bader was also a remarkable man and pilot, given the difficulties he had to overcome (he had no legs for those who didnt know)
