    Hitler's Mind is Transported into German Kaiser Wilhelm II's Body in 1888

    I previously created a thread about Hitler's mind being transported to Bismarck's body in 1870. However, after reading the comments on that thread, I figured that I should also ask this question: What if Hitler's mind is transported into German Kaiser Wilhelm II's body in 1888 with the help of...

    Title PLA cavalry still train with sabre in hand for tradition. New plates like level IV armor can stop multiple hits from 30 caliber rounds. With this, can cavalry ever come back?

    Anything about the human body

    I reject the Christian concept that the human body is divinely designed; rather, it is a product of long evolution. The healthy human body and mind functions relatively decent, and the human body, as a product of evolution, has various defects. An example is the development of cataract...

    The Myth of Blackbeard's Body

    So, many people say that after Blackbeard was beheaded, he swam laps around the ship before sinking. Could this be possible? It may just be currents carrying the body.

    Does the body rule the mind or does the mind rule the body?

    Title question. Does the body rule the mind, or does the mind rule the body? Personally, I think the body rules the mind far more than most of us would care to admit. For example, where is your left foot right now? Is it moving? Did you consciously decide to place it there? Most of what we do...

    If they had bullet-proof vests in the 19th century?

    I'm not really sure whether to put this thread here or in the Speculative History section, so feel free to move it if you're a mod. Basically, I was wondering what effect it would have on 19th-century warfare (esp. the Napoleonic to American Civil War periods) if armies had equipped a large...
