I need more information to provide a legitimate answer. What year does this war take place?

In that case...

The donkeys declared an all out war against camels all over the world. Donkeys started conquering Russia, and started expanding south-west. Eventually, the camels were pushed to Egypt, and they simply retreated. Once the donkey army was in the heat of the dessert, the camels surrounded the donkeys. This effectively blocked any reinforcement paths toward the donkeys, and the quickly ran out of water. Once they were tired, the camels quickly attacked, and destroyed the donkey army.

Harald Hardrada, realized the power of organization and innovation from the camels, and used them in order to invade Denmark. His success was huge, and ended conquering all of Europe. In every country he conquered, he had sex with at least 10 women. At least seven of each ten got pregnant.

Fast forward to the year 1873. An article titled "På Electrodynamics av Moving Bodies" (Norwegian became the most used language) is published. The author, a descendant from Harald, Bjorn Sigurdsson. This was the first published article, explaining what we know in this universe as "special relativity".



In a universe, where the library of Alexandria is never destroyed: What are the borders of USA?

32 years after the library wasn't destroyed, a young man by the name of Publius Julius Sagius comes to Alexandria. Amazed by the grandeur and wealth of knowledge in the library, he creates a religion based on learning.(In our world his mother was killed before he was born by being pelted by bandits with stones from the library). The religion rapidly spread throughout the Roman Empire, creating a culture of learning. This fails to stop the eventual fall of the empire; however, the religion is taken up by the invading Goths. The Gothic kings support a large priestly class involved in research and teaching, and the lower classes are also given better education: The Goths reach 95% literacy by 550 AD.

As curiosity is highly valued in their culture, the Gothic Kings fund many voyages of discovery. In 600, the Americas are discovered by Dr. Sophidoric Alaricswinth. (North America is named Alaricswinthia)They create trading posts along the East coast of North America, trading with the Native Alaricswinthians. Later, they send armies inland to build trading posts and suppress Cheifs who won't trade. Eventually they have built an Empire across the continent from the Hudson Strait to the Gulf of Mexico, extending almost as far West as the Rocky Mountains. However, the Empire is loosely held by only a few thousand troops and in 957 the Native Alaricswinthians rise up and declare independence. They form a new nation, the United States of Alaricswinthia.

The rotation of the Earth would cause severe changes in magnetic flux linkage, making small, handheld metallic devices impractically animated. Building and perhaps entire cities would be surrounded by protective domes to prevent metal implements striking them and causing damage, which would amplify acoustics. The Beatles therefore would have played a mixture of xylophones and recorders, both of which can be constructed without metals and are not so loud as to be deafening in confined spaces.

In a world where tea towels do not exist, how expensive are cats?

If there are no tea towels, there is no way to dry cats. Consequently, all cats are constantly wet. No-one wants a wet cat, so cat prices are two orders of magnitude lower.

In a world where explosions are commonplace, can one man do what he needs to do to save what truly matters?

Jillithan Brisby, in the year 2791, attempts to travel back in time to move Julius Caesar's chair before it explodes, killing him and three senators instantly. Unfortunately, his main and all four backup engines simultaneously explode during a rare but not unheard of double-triple-explosion, leaving him stranded in the timestream, never aging but never escaping.
So, no. He cannot.

In a world where Americans drive on the left-hand side of the road, what is the most popular flavor of Coca-Cola?

Code: Select all

:Clrhome
:while 1
:Output(randInt(1,8),randInt(1,16),randInt(0,9))
:Output(randInt(1,8),randInt(1,16)," ")
:Output(randInt(1,8),randInt(1,16)," ")
:End

given that original is currently the most popular, the shift to a left hand side, would most likely result in lime Coca Cola.
