This isn't even a passably "clever" twist, like finding out Te Kā is Te Fiti. It's like learning that Ursula is the bad guy. "Who would have seen that coming?!"

Hey guys, I'm not sure if this "Senator Palpatine" guy is really trustworthy...

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.

Annie wouldn't understand what it means though. Since in her timeline there's no Hitler yet (and there might never be since the past leading up to it is so different).

If you walked up to her and said "Hi Witch Hitler."

She would blink with her large eyes, confused.

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?

Are they that good that she avoids the great big goblin pushing her wheelchair down a slope into a pond?

All I mean is that an Annie Holstadt with her wand and the power of the Relics is able to place a curse on entire armies and burn whole cities down with magical fire

Some of this takes good motor control

She’s also said to be very fast; its unlikely she would fall into a lake

A crippled Annie though? She can’t move

I'd do it, feeling no permanent resentment in my soul afterward.

I'd just remind myself that I didn't help anyone. No citizenry is going to pardon a tyrannic monarch if he takes the time to showcase a crippled girl. Besides, I'd have to take into account that his strategy backfires. And if it doesn't backfire, and if it is successful, to what extent is it successful? This is medieval Europe. CNN, FOX, and newspapers don't exist.

To paraphrase, I helped no one.

I mean, IM has an awful habit of not knowing how the middle ages work. (Thinking that Medieval wars were glorious despite them being some of the most brutal and 'dishonorable' wars in human history up until the World Wars, that Medicine Existed, that Basic Gender Equality existed, that people weren't brutally killed for even the most minor of offences, etc) So...

the premise of the hypothetical is that you may or may not be

this was intended to be more trivia than a central aspect of the hypothetical

you're supposed to focus on cost-benefit analysis
