No, the stupidest timeline is that one where Neil Armstrong died of old age without anyone having got any further than he did. No, no, no. The stupidest timeline is that one where Ug-Ug and Pug-Ug decide that dangerous fire thing isn't worth following up on, and decide not to leave the Rift Valley....

I heard her parents got her a tub of Neoplitan from Tescos but ate the chocolate one first. Which, you know, makes the genocide a tad more understandable. This sounds like psychological abuse It’s the parents saying “we’re in control. When we give you a treat, it’s on our terms. You like the chocol...

I think it's more the idea that abuse and a troubled past make someone really mysterious and interesting. Well, as long as they're from an upper middle class or above family, and not one of those dreadful poors. It's not the case outside badly written fiction of course, but it sure is a popular tro...

Because Witch Hitler is IM's Mary Sue waifu. Given the amount of abuse he puts her through, that's... Let's just chalk that up to "worrying." I think it's more the idea that abuse and a troubled past make someone really mysterious and interesting. Well, as long as they're from an upper mi...

Hang on, I thought Annie had a childhood and adolescence of persecution and suffering to the point where we were supposed to feel sympathy for her even after the genocide stuff. When did she fit the swordfighting lessons in between all that suffering, abuse and abnormaly large eyeballs? While you w...

So, wait. She was a part of the 1% and yet she had a bAd LiFe? Wow, she's not only a genocidal dickhead but she's a spoiled genocidal dickhead. Also, you only see that in Japanese Peasants. Women in Medieval Europe were expect to be little more than sex toys for men. "Gee, golly, gosh, glorios...

it's the same thing EXCEPT (a list of things) That except part makes it way to different. At this point it's not the medieval area and more closely aligned to medievalpunk (think the Thief games) at best and at worst is just utter bullshit with a few castles.

No. Prior to about 1830 , swimming was practised by a few people -- almost all of them male. In the Medieval period, water was viewed as a sinister "otherworld", populated by sea monsters and avoided by all those who did not make their living there -- in other words (from a Medieval persp...

Good thing you included this pointless trivia, it's clearly been a big help. "You guys may be a literal genocidal maniac, but you might not. Now, make a decision based on what you think is best for you." I mean if there's a slight chance you're actually witch hitler then there's also a ch...

Okay, fair enough IM. You know what, I am not gonna fuck around, after all you went to the trouble of writing this out.

That's cos she is the hitler of this reality. I don't really care about the size of her eyes. Does she blink so hard that it causes her to roll into a pond? ... no? Her motor skills/control is pretty decent Are they that good that she avoids the great big goblin pushing her wheelchair down a slope ...

First use of Witch Hitler as a title appears to be this post , though it was in the midst of a discussion surrounding Hitler 2.0. Witch Hitler is a much better title than Hitler 2.0. Annie wouldn't understand what it means though. Since in her timeline there's no Hitler yet (and there might never b...

Meanwhile in RyanAir . RyanAir's reponse? "Pay us £55 to do things because our own systems failed catastrophically." Ryanair is the worst thing Ireland ever did and I'm amazed we haven't been invaded to put a stop to our crimes yet. It would have happened already, but no one believed Ryan...

Nah. Loads of people are just not answering your polls until 'roll into a pond and quietly drown' is added as an option to this and all subsequent hypotheticals. Or, at least Witch Hitler related hypotheticals. I mean, let's look at her from the two points of view raised on her: 1 -- the common per...

Right. So we asked IM if this crippled Annie was actual her. And he refuses to outright deny it, which means "yes." some hypotheticals operate on imperfect knowledge this is one of those you have a vague suspicion you COULD be the Witch Queen, you don't know do you take the King's offer? ...

There’s already an Other on the poll for the less realistic options


Rolling quietly into a pond and drowning is 100% the most realistic and best option for anyone caught in one of these weird dystopias.

Other than the dreadful stench it causes, it fills the air with tobacco smoke, which non-smokers in the area will inevitably inhale, causing damage to their health in the long term.
