Babe Ruth – Super Villain? Babe Ruth – Super Villain?(0)

(From the Mile High Card Company Blog) – In the late 1990’s, there was a pretty cool TV show called “Sliders” in which a group of scientists discovered a way to travel to parallel universes.

Perhaps the “Earth” they landed on was dominated by the British, who had won the Revolutionary War, or visited a disease-riddled planet combating a worldwide plague, with antibiotics never having been invented. The moral of the show is that some decisions, no matter how benign they may seem at the time, can have repercussions that seriously change the course of history as we know it. Read More
