Then inferno titan wouldn't exist.

What if magic did not have instants?

Instants would all be sorceries with flash and we'd carry on as usual

What if 1+1=8

Then 1 + 7 = 2.


What if the minimum deck size of mtg was increased to 250?

Battle of Wits would be fantastic.

What if I was an old woman named Beryl?

Then we would accept you just as you are. I mean if we're willing to accept you as a faceless string of 1s and 0s, how would being an old woman be a downgrade?

What if Canada and Australia went to war?

Then the US will have been part of the Canadian or Australian empire for quite a long time.


What if the words "What If" ceased to exist as of the end of this sentence?

Well then the thread would die completely until Jack decides to disregard his own previous post :).

What if all cats acted exactly like dogs (and not just mine)?

Well, with that market cornered, dogs would start acting like some other animal. Gerbils, maybe? In which case gerbils would have to start acting like squirrels. And so squirrels would start acting like cats, and balance would be restored.

What if NGA was never created, and we still had to rely on the WotC forums?

The community would likely have disintegrated.The WOTC forums are a ghost town, and while the strength of the community would have kept the hardcore devotees going, a few more people would leave every month. Some would continue on, but the majority would be gone. Or maybe everyone would move to another, existing forum.

What would happen if everybody in the world suddenly spoke the same language?

An entire genre of comedy bits would vanish.

What if everyone in the world suddenly spoke different, completely unique languages?

People will naturally pick up bits of the languages spoken around them and fuse them into a sort of pidgin language. But if every single person spoke their own language? You would need a different language for every family, social group and workplace. Eventually things would start to stabilize into city/region/countrywide languages, but it would take years. In the mean time most high level social groups would disintegrate. How can you have legal proceedings or run a large business when nobody can understand one another? We would become a race of talented linguists living in tiny nation states, forming new ethnicities and the world order as it stands today would basically collapse.

What if the first Pokemon games debuted with the full 649 pokemon we have today?

Then I would not have been able to fit the poster on my wall. I'm serious, just the 150 species one was huge.

What if no one had ever come up with the concept of sequels, and all fiction only existed in its first iteration?

Then movie critics wouldn't be so full of hate.

What if yogurt became milk over time instead of the other way around?

We would cease to have any way to make yogurt.


What if tanks were viable in LOL?

If tanks were part of League of Legends then the league itself would cease to exist as mechanized warfare (that's what tanks are right?) came to be the dominant form of warfare. Fun fact: LOL is the prequel to World Of Tanks.

What if Pokemon were utilized in warfare?

Then humans would quickly become relatively immune to being setting on fire, electrocuted, extreme water pressure, hypnotism, and most other forms of cartoon violence. Meanwhile, pokemon would start their own union and pokemon rights organizatoins would quickly become a thing.


What if Teemo was a pokemon?

Then Teemo would evolve into Teemore. I don't know, I Googled the guy and I still don't know what it is.

What if paper were black instead of white?

Then lighter colored ink would be much more popular.

Then obviously someone else would point it out in a somewhat funny but slightly passive-aggressive way.

What if all humans had perfect memory?
