Changing history one pixel at a time

I recently came across this lovely set of photo manipulations on Relleno De Mono's Flickr page which are some of the nicest bits of photo manipulation I've seen in a while. It reminded me of other instances where, either for political motives (before/after), or for more creative purposes, such as Tom Hanks in Forest Gump, people have taken a part of history and completely altered its significance and meaning. More recently the utterly disappointing Watchmen, had a very nice title sequence which did set a nice scene. I've always liked it in films which you know aren't to be taken too seriously, begin to supplant their reality into ours, which is why this next set of TOYIB's images are just brilliant:
