This day in alternate history
On December 10, 1941 in alternate history:
Richard M. Nixon, citing his Quaker beliefs, declares himself a "conscientous objector" to the 2nd World War.
I have absolutely no idea why I am finding this site so amusing, but if you would like to know more about this alternate world history, here is Nixon's timeline.

How different would the world be if, say, Reagan had won an Oscar? Or if Castro had been good enough at baseball to be scouted by and offered a position with the Dodgers as the rumors say?
