    Hughes wins in 1916; is the US as isolationist in the 1920s & 1930s as in real life?

    Hughes wins in 1916; is the US as isolationist in the 1920s & 1930s as in real life? Would the US have been as isolationist in the 1920s and 1930s if Charles Evans Hughes rather than Woodrow Wilson won the US Presidency in 1916? Had Hughes won, I would imagine that he'd still take the US into...

    What happens if and when artificial life forms become sentient?

    Reading about "sex robots", thinking about an old (1972) Night Gallery episode entitled "You Can't Get Help Like That Anymore" and watching the sci-fi series(now in its third series on Channel Four in the UK) "Humans" has made me wonder as to what will happen if and when what will happen if...

    Casting from life in Late Classical Greek sculpture

    I understand that the sudden widespread improvement in anatomical precision in Late Classical Greek bronzes was due to the practice of casting from life rather than modelling the clay master by eye. There seems plenty of support for life casting view (Boardman and others), but a colleague is...

    Who originally said "What We Do In Life, Echoes In Eternity"?

    I recently watched the "Gladiator" film, and there was this quote that said: "What We Do In Life, Echoes In Eternity". I really liked that quote, and did some research. I found multiple answers, but the most common was that it was said by Marcus Aurelius on his "Meditations". I have the...

    What would life be like for a poor, rural, teenage girl in 17th century England?

    If you were a girl from a poor family who lived in the countryside, what would teenage life be like? I'm interested in when they would start working, what work they'd do. How much spare time they'd have. When they'd get married. Etc. Thanks!

    Have you notice people criticizing military blunders repeat same mistakes in life?

    Since this is alternate history forum, I'd thought I'd post this. This is an observation I notice within the field of History and the History community. We all know the Saying "History Repeats itself" and other similar historical maxims and often I see people (especially in Military History)...

    1870s England: life, beliefs, morals and society

    I'm reading a novel that claims that most people of the lower classes didn't even know what year it was at any given time. The book also claims these same people couldn't recognize a statue of King George. And that some girls turned to prostitution as young as 13 years old. But, that most...

    At the end of life, 'seeing ghosts' may be a self-awareness of being near death

    I came across this article this morning: At the end of life, 'seeing ghosts' may be a self-awareness of being near death | Pittsburgh Post-Gazette I was intrigued my the concept. As a logical person, I find it hard to believe in ghosts. As a spiritual person, something tells me it may...

    Why did Plutarch do a life of Artaxerses?

    Perhaps not the greatest burning question of history, but I just finished the second half of Plutarch's parallel lives a couple of months back and found it odd that there is this extra non-Greek, non-Roman life thrown in. Pretty cool as it allows one to re-visit the Anabasis from the other...

    Evaluating the life and reign of Charles I of England

    Never has there been a monarch as misunderstood as Charles I. This man's life was lived on an epic scale; his destiny and death can remind us of Greek tragedy. Was Charles a noble martyr (as many claim, even today); a victim of his own shortcomings or of circumstances; a narrow-minded, stubborn...

    Life out of chemistry, why it stopped happening?

    If life came randomly from chemicals shouldn't the same procedure keep taking place on nature right now?

    JFK wasn't killed in 1963, lived his natural life.

    Maybe there is another thread of this topic, if not, here are my questions... 1. JFK never went to Dallas and served out his term until January 20, 1965. No matter the outcome of the 1964 race, how long do you think he might have lived? My feeling is that he had a lot of health problems for a...

    "Right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness"?

    If you ask a random American if these are constitutional rights, they would likely say yes. The random American has likely not read the US Constitution or if they have, they haven't noticed "Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness" is nowhere mentioned. Surely we have those rights, don't we...
