  1. Introduction

    This is a revision of the United States presidential election of 1964, the year of Democratic President Lyndon B. Johnson's landslide election against Republican Barry Goldwater.

     

    In the 1964 election of the current timeline, Johnson received over 61% of the popular vote compared to over 38% for Goldwater. But in this revised version of history, the 1964 landslide is a bit narrower. In this revision, Johnson has 58.4% of the popular vote compared to Goldwater's 41.2%, for a victory margin of just over 17%.

     

    I'm doing this because Barry Goldwater is a significant pioneer figure in the patriotic American revolution, known by the mainstream as the American conservative movement. Ronald Reagan admired Goldwater, and his political beliefs in many ways mirrored that of Goldwater. With 41% of the popular vote instead of 38%, this further paves the way for the Reagan landslides, which will be much bigger than the ones in the current timeline by the way.

     

    The revised election below is organized state-by-state in alphabetical order, for a total of 50 states plus the District of Columbia.

    Welcome, one and all, to Curious Cosmos.

    First things first, Curious Cosmos now hosts the Time Travel Institute forums. The two have not merged, per se, but it makes more sense to run one community platform than a handful of smaller sites. TTI is not going away; it's now part of a larger whole.

    So, why the change? 

    I love this community. I love building this stuff and thinking of new ways to make things work. Sometimes that love turns into more of an "I will love him and squeeze him and call him George" situation than it needs to be, but I mean well.

    image.png

    Most of all, I love providing a place for people to express themselves and share wild ideas. This site is like a second home to me. It's where I come to escape, and it's something I want to pass down to my kids when I'm too old to squint at the computer screen.

    Doesn't it feel like the older you get, the less time there is? There's real science and logic behind this perception, but that doesn't make it any less annoying. I work east coast hours on the west coast, so my day runs from 4 AM to 2 PM... And then suddenly, it's 9 PM. Where did the day go?

    Everyone's life is busy, and the time we have is finite. More than anything, running a time travel site has taught me that. I want the effort I spend here to grow something that can sustain itself and support the kind of content I'd like to create (and that I'd like to see). There's a full-time job here somewhere, maybe I can find it 😉

    tl;dr: Opening things up a little will make it easier to grow.

    Here's a rough outline of how we're structuring things:

    Time Travel Institute

    • An upgraded version of the original site (circa 2010ish) will go up.
    • The original content will return, updated in some places.
    • New content in the future.
    • Time Travel Hotline 😉
    • Forums will live on Curious Cosmos.

    Curious Cosmos

    • Expanded core topics will allow more kinds of content (maps, different types of databases, etc.) and attract more members.
    • Higher focus on member-run Dimensions (basically a subreddit)
    • Higher focus  on Zines (member blogs)
    • Easier long-term planning on my part
    • TTIDB becomes CCDB
    • You have the tools to make this site your own

    I'll go into more detail in future posts, but this should give you an idea. Stay tuned for some intro posts about creating Dimensions and using some of the site features.

    How on earth did Duran Duran know about the 45th president of the United States? Watch and listen to find out what I mean. They knew about Trump Tower, that's for sure. Is this merely coincidence, or is something eerie going on?
