Something I noticed, really irrelevant...  
This is something I felt like poking at.

I heard some people mention historical inaccuracies in the London bit, mostly the mention of Churchill. This is completely useless, but at the time of WWI Churchill was the first lord of admiraltry, and was trying to modernise the fleet for war. Now, why Hoenheim's involved in the navy I don't know, but there it is, Churchill is there... I found it a bit amusing that when you search Hoenheim all you get is a town and some architecture project called Terminus Hoenheim, which I thought was very apt.

(Not to mention it comes up with results for a place that sells plane in the town of Hoenheim! See, everybody ties into planes! All of them! All- *is shot for excessive stupid*)

EDIT: Please forgive me my lack of former lj-cuttage. I am sick and slow and stupid at the moment. -_-

Le sigh. Okay, I'm just stupid. Forgive me, I'm sick at the moment and my brain's just not working right.

maybe Hohenheim's double (since there's one of each in each world or so I am led to believe) was a part of the navy?

Due to lack of time on my hands and feeling the random need to learn something useless, its not overtly THAT historically inacurate persay beyond a few details.

THe time that Ed and his father would have to come out would have to be sometime between January of 1915 and May of 1915 for a couple reason.

THe first Zepplin raid on London wasnt untill January 19th, 1915, this raid in itself did very little actually damage to London, but was only undertook by 2 Zepplins, and i cant remeber the exact number of zepplins in the piece. Now the largest raid of some 14 some odd Zepplins was on Sept 2nd, 1916, but this couldnt be the one in the actual show because in May of 1915 Churchill was dismissed as First Lord of Admiralty.

*laughs* but yeah as for how Ed's father was in the navy, alternative time line, he coulda been anything :)

But i'm not bored ^_^
