    One trip in time to past....where would YOU go?

    Ok....the rule is you get ONE trip to any event in time to the past only (and the return...you must return). I limit it to only the past because you can't know, for sure, of any events in the future.

    What time/place/event do you choose to visit?

    I'd love to spend a few days with Abraham Lincoln. Probably between his 1858 unsuccessful run for Senate and his 1860 election to the Presidency. He absolutely amazes me, and I'd love a chance to see what he was like, in person.

    I'd be afraid to go back to something more personal: I'm not sure I could handle the pain of leaving it behind again.

    For me...I'm thinking of some "hero" types I'd like to meet too.

    Sir Isaak Newton
    Claude Shannon
    Gandhi
    Bruce Lee

    I'd have to think harder before making a "final decision".

    To the moment when Yitzhak Rabin was assasinated - to do anything necessary to stop it. I believe there are certain historical events that have been major turning points for humanity and how things will go for us ever after. I sincerely believe Rabin's death was one of those turning points.

    My choice would have been to be near a grassy knoll in Dallas Texas on November 22, 1963. To see the truth...

    On a happier note, my close second option would be to be in Paris France on July 23, 1989. Lemond & Fignon. Classic.

    1983 - I'd have bought Microsoft stock instead of that first new car. I might bet on a couple sporting events as well.

    Sometime a couple thousand years in the past. I'd bring a bunch of gadgets and penicillin and other cool stuff with me. Impress a bunch of people, cure the sick, blahblahblah, and tell everyone that I am a god and should be deeply revered. I'd then tell them that I must travel to a different planet to fight some monsters, but that I will be reborn on Earth and tell them exactly when and where and that I should be offered gifts and nubile young women for the remainder of my mortal life or I will destroy the Universe.

    Well, there was one New Year's Eve about 15 or 16 years ago when the woman who is now my wife and I did some serious record-breaking wa-hoo, I've always wanted to re-live that night. But I suppose with enough sweet-talk and jewelry I could convince her to re-stage it now, so I suppose that would be squandering the time travelling opportunity.

    For some reason I've always been fascinated with European civilization (sic) after the decline of the Roman Empire and before, oh, say the signing of the Magna Carta. I'm not sure if there are specific events or locales, so just plunk me down near the banks of the Rhine in, I dunno, how about 650 AD.

    Make sure I've had all my shots. And am heavily armed.

    I would go back to when I was running state semi-finals, and shove myself off to the side before I get a chance to really hurt myself.

    The rest of it I see as altering history to way too many people at once.

    If I could change things: March 22 1990, Garrison, Minnesota.

    If I couldn't change things: July 16 1982, 10:30 pm under the willow tree in the back yard.

    Maybe I'd go bring modern guns to the texicans at the alamo. Or maybe I'd go and kill Hitler in about 1935. Or, if I could get the money, maybe I'd go back to about 1920 and start a company that would make reliable cars that got 100 MPG.

    remember that you have to return, so if you go back and change history you have no idea what you are returning to.

    explody pup may beg to differ with you on the possibility of time travel. I am pretty sure he does it on a regular basis.

    I'd love to go back and witness historical events. WAY too may choices. I'd have to think a while to narrow it down to even a handful.
