...how would the world be different? How would significant historical events have played out differently, if at all? What would an alternate timeline look like?
#4
It would be different, and people back then could not handle it mentally. The people would probably destroy it and well, we would have no internet today!!! :O

Oh yea and there would be no emos.

My original concept was very broad, so let's look at one part at a time.

World War II. (still broad, I know, but not as much)

There's a good chance that it wouldn't have happened.

Things like this have infinite variables that we can't possibly take into effect, so they're a waste of time unfortunately.

In the year 1900, pornography will become ramped and the majority of the young male community will become blind and hairy palmed.
In the year 1900, all comedy and culture will cease to exist due to the creation of 4chan and its memes.
In the year 1900, social networking sites will replace all forms of human contact and interaction,

I realize that. This was less about a serious discussion and more about just having some fun with the idea.

But I know what you mean. I feel kind of silly.

The constitution was written in the 1780s

Anyway, Adolf Hitler would have been an E-bully and would have wasted his life away on that.

Well, if the internet had been invented in 1900, that would mean that a plethora of other technologies which made the internet possible would have had to have been invented by 1900. And since you can't isolate the variable, it's pretty hard to come up with an answer.

We did know about it beforehand. We chose not to do anything so we'd have an excuse to enter the war.

Well in theory the internet has always been around, we just haven't had the tech to harness its abilities. Since the internet is not a material thing like say a computer, it is more of an idea it has always existed, but we were unaware. Asking what would have happened if we harnessed it is alot like saying if Christianity didnt catch on where would science be without the dark ages? We will not know how the changed the world in 109 years until it has lasted for 109 years, and even then it could be subject to change. Also when you say internet do you mean public or military? The military started working towards a system of communication like the internet in the early 1950's.

It was available to the public in 1991. If you change anything preceding the internet's invention(like deleting 91 years of technological advancement just for a hypothetical that the internet was invented in 1900) then the internet doesn't necessarily come to be. It is the chaos theory in essence.

So 1900 would have to be 1991 years after when AD and BC meet on a timeline. This is a paradox.

I say to you today, budz, so even though we face the hard of today and tomorrow, I still haz a dream. tis a dream deeply rooted in the american dream.

I haz a dream that one day this nashun will rise up n live out teh tru meanin of its creed “We hold this truth to be selfevadent : that all menz are creatid ekual.”

I haz a dream that one day on the red hills of Goergia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at a table of dah hood.

I haz a dream that one day even the state of Misisssipppi, a state *whatever* with the heat of injustice, *whatever* with the eat of preshun, will be transformed into an oazis of fredom and justis (4 all).

I haz a dream that my 4 lil children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their caracter. I haz a dream 2day!

I haz a dream that one day down in Alabama, with its vicious f*ckin racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the words of teh st00pids; one day right down in Alabama lil black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sis and bros.

I haz a dream 2day.

I haz a dream th-
