Building History - Alt History, That Is

I had to share this, having stumbled across it by accident on a link in an otherwise unrelated TVTropes page: there's an entire wiki dedicated to the production and development of some very complex and elaborate alternate what-if histories out there. If you're at all into world-building or weird history, this is a fascinating site to visit. Check it out! There are literally hundreds of alt histories on record, and a few dozen that are feature-favorites with hundreds of pages of historical details, updates and "current news." I love the 1983 time line that postulates what would have happened if Stanislov Petrov hadn't been on duty that fateful day in September 26, 1983...
