Introduction This is a revision of the United States presidential election of 2008. This election is revamped, particularly in that both the Republican and Democratic candidates for president have been replaced. John McCain is replaced by Alan Keyes, and Barack Obama is replaced by Hillary Clinton. Why Keyes for Republican nominee, one might ask? Because Obama’s black, well technically he’s only 50% black at maximum. And I can think of at least seven black men who’d make a better President...

Introduction This is a revision of the United States presidential election of 2004. The election was between Republican President George W. Bush and Democrat John Kerry.

Anyway, in this revised version of history...

Introduction This article can be seen as an appendix to the one about Ivan Petrov. The purpose of the article is to illustrate how much longer certain Russian rulers might live in the next revision of history; and this is assuming that, by way of Petrov, Western medicine enters Russia along with the Renaissance. (In Russia, Western medicine is mixed with that indigenous to Russia and the rest of Eastern Europe.) In regards to the Grand Princes of Moscow during the Mongol era, with the...

Introduction This is my 3rd article. It involves adding pioneer Renaissance figures to selected nations of Europe: Italy, Spain, France, Germany, England, and Russia. In current history as we know it, the Renaissance, which is said to have originated in Florence, Italy, took quite a while for the most part to be spread outside of Italy, although it entered certain nations like Spain earlier on, as I recall. This thread entails shortening this process, hence the introduction of additional...

Introduction This is a list of Italian classical composers, both real and fictional. The fictional ones are intended to become a reality in a separate timeline or in revised history. However, the names of these composers inserted into this list are largely hypothetical. That is, they may or may not be named as such after history is changed. The names of these composers are highlighted in boldface. The purpose of the presence of these composers is to make more compositional geniuses out of...
