    Winner of the interwebs for today!!!

    I’ve already heard some people screaming saying how the car is hitting a kid. I responded with “It’s Hitler! How many veterans and victims from that era wouldn’t line up to run him over like that??”

    For more exploration of this theme, read John Scalzi’s short story “Missives from Possible Futures #1: Alternate History Search Results” (Subterranean Press magazine, Winter 2007). It’s also quite funny. (I was fortunate enough to see him do a live reading of this story at Denvention 3. It’s even funnier when read out loud!)
