Shall we shake things up a bit?

Asked by Jonesn4burgers (6333 points ) 5 days ago

Suppose ONE change could take place which would really shake things up. For instance, if Obama learned to speak Russian fluently, but didn’t tell anybody? Or a company markets a new product, pure prune juice, amped up with caffeine? (Which, by the way, they would call giddyup and go, QUICK)
Serious or funny, likely or way out there, what change can you think of, and possible outcome(s)?

The USA didn’t misinterpret the Japanese’s letter, which was sent a few days before the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Outcome: Hiroshima and Nagasaki wouldn’t be bombed.

Here’s something that would most certainly have changed history: If President Kennedy hadn’t visited Dallas on November 22, 1963. My uncle, a Dallas businessman who served as an adviser to JFK (and subsequently, to LBJ), urged him to skip the trip, as did many others.

As for today, something that definitely would shake things up is if all guns in the world vanished (one of my favorite fantasies).

It would sure change gang activity wouldn’t it? Could you imagine the news reporting “walk up to’s”,“stomp away froms”, and “brutal shouting matches?”

I’ve been signing up my pets for political propa-gander for years now. My goose “Marwyn” was constantly solicited for his vote. lol
“Dear Marwyn B. we need your support!
I have long said it is time for an entirely new SPECIES in office.

Marwyn bears a striking resemblance to Ross Perot. haha
Marwyn for president, plenty of bread and swimming pools for all. ;-)

Kids get credits for each +1% for a grade. That can be redeemed at the end of the year. From cash to gaming time in the computer lab. Be creative.

If we shake things up a bit, you will surely damage your candy coated shell.
