Long before his failed attempt to blow up the Parliament Building (to kill the king) on the 5th November in 1605, Guy Fawkes was pretty determined about his political and religious stand point. He was also hailed as an intelligent debater who had physical endurance and prowess. This got me thinking, what if he had utilised these skills in another career, used his powers for good rather than evil? Or alternatively, if he was determined on the path to gunfire treason and plot visited his careers service and learned how to train as a more successful demolition expert, or a better project manager? History could be very different and we could be missing out on our yearly fix of pyrotechnics!
