What three things.... 20:36 - Jun 23 with 1408 viewsLorax

Ok you heathens, if you could choose any 3 points in history, any great historical event to go back and watch live, what would you pick?

1, The building of the great Pyramid at Giza, I just want to know how they did it.

2, Operation Agreement WW2, I've heard the story but I want to see just how in hades my Grandpa survived the amphibious assault of Tobruk.

3, The grassy gnoll, I'd like to find out who actually did shoot JFK.

If I was going back just to see battles then it's still be Op Agreement but then it'd be Salamis and the battle of the Phillipine sea.

Thing is, I'm not sure I'd really want to see one of the really big battles the ones I mentioned and Waterloo, Austerlitz, the bloodshed, the suffering, I could easily have enough of that in 5 minutes.

Maybe I'd like to see the Gettysburg address or find out if the birth of Jesus actually happened, how about being there when Tuts tomb was opened, once you've seen one gorefest battle, that should be enough.

Umm, Jfk firstly.

Secondly I would like full access to everything that happened in Wuhan from say September 2019, till June 2020.

Oh yeah, wouldn't mind watching the dinosaurs as well :)

What ifs are great diversionary entertainment, mate.

Had Versailles gone differently the political landscape of the ‘20s and ‘30s would have been radically different. When Capital’s crisis struck in 1929, without the crippling burden of reparations there is every possibility that Weimar would have weathered the storm, just, as did Britain.

Hitler? His would be a name known only to undergraduate students of obscure, short-lived political sects of the immediate post-war era. Of the other leading Nazis we know now I’d say only two would have gone on to achieve fame or notoriety.

It’s not difficult to imagine Goebbels going on to become a hugely successful, if scurrilous journalist, attacking the sitting ducks of the left and right with equal relish well into the ‘60s.

The second figure offers an altogether different possibility. Had history followed a different trajectory Gregor Strasser may well be remembered today as a mid-century titan of the European centre-left. A possible German Chancellor, perhaps recalled as the father of the German welfare state?


I fully agree on that, a brilliant diversion but still, Loh, if you changed anything in history there would be no way of knowing how the new events would unfold.

Imagine if we did something and the secret of nuclear weapons never got out and the USA was the only nuclear power, would that be better? It's easy to argue it would be better, that Russia and China could shut up or else but it's not that easy.

Change one small thing and 70 years later it could end with M.A.D. I'd love to be able to go back and watch but I'd never want to interfere.

It is just the chance to walk in Matthew Street, which played a massive part in the birth of music in the UK as we know it today, that makes it special to us "tourists" in Liverpool.
Same as anyone visiting the tv or movie studios in the UK or Hollywood ( the real ones not the fake ones ) can draw a sense of the birth of those genres.
Can't beat Monument Valley for stirring the memories mind


I get that stid but having worked there in Plod it kinda ha a skewed edge.
It does have an atmosphere though and requires little imagination to understand the significant Liverpool bands played in music. Not just the Beatles I hasten to add.

That is the same for the West End and Broadway.
For all the glitz, glamour and history, there is a sad underbelly in both areas where people are living on the streets.
Sad but true.

1. I would stop Huw buying Mesa and Borja so we stay in Prem.

2. I would go to 1966 world cup final and get the Russian linesman to flag the goals as off- side.

3. I would send Joe Jordan to jail for cheating, and send Cymru to the World Cup

Until the next time my computer goes absolutely bonkers! it's a fairly new computer too, not a year old yet, I only got it just before last Christmas.

I'm sure it's something to do with Microsoft edge, anybody else had any issues with this?

Take yesterday, I kept getting pop ups from Edge saying my laptop was infected with 5 viruses and to turn on my anitvirus which then changed to purchase an antivirus. My antivirus is on and always has been, I did a full scan and it came back clear but those pop ups kept on coming. It's Microsoft slaes dept Im sure.

Just my opinion, but WTF do I know anyway?

Better in the pre computer days of listening to the ramblings of Richard Shepherd for second half commentaries
