Imagine a world where Conan, Xena, and Blackadder were real people while Hitler, Mussolini, and Churchill werent. A world where the Battle of Helms Deep really happened but the Battle of Hastings didnt.
Sounds like a better world than the real one until we add in that its also a world in which humanity has been conquered and enslaved by some combination of Martians, Cylons, and damn dirty apes.
What world is this? According to a substantial percentage of the British public, its the one we live in.
So cheer up, fellow Americans we are not alone.
