1981 - Back to the house my Grandfather built after he came back from the war. I used to spend most of my summers there with my cousins and we had always had the best time. They had acres of property and we would lay in the hammock in the sun eating popsicles and reading books. It was a carefree easy time.

I'd go back in time to try and help my wimpy dad and alcoholic mom's high school life be better, specifically a bully that keeps picking on my dad even to this day. you know, give him some self confidence to stand up to the guy in high school so that maybe it'll help change the way things are now.

Woodstock! {duh}

I would go and visit some Biblical figures,
to watch how they lived, and ask them questions
to see if The Bible got something wrong.

I would also visit my 14-year-old self
and teach myself how to shave.
I had one hell of a beard growing when I was 14.

June 2009-Stop my mom from buying a new house! :lol:

Then, I will go into the future and see
where I might be in 5, 10 or 15 years.

Preferably, I'd rather go into the future,
similar to the new show "Flash-Forward."

I came back to now to say hello.

hello :D

pm me if I've caused a paradox and I'll come back and fix it.


[edit] just to clarify, pm me in the future since my present self wouldn't know what you're on about.

We may have killed many people.
Say you stopped some stranger to ask him directions and that delay caused him to be hit by a truck that he would have missed.

What if talking to him caused him to miss the bus where he would have sat next to the girl who would have been his future wife and their son would have developed a drug to save millions from a future plague?

ok, here's the deal, I'll tell you if:

1a) I can get a ride on board The Doctor's TARDIS... OR
1b) You can get me a DeLorean DMC-12 and the needed stuff to make a Time Machine out of that a-la Back to the Future (but convert the car so the steering wheel is on the correct side first :P)
2) you name any interesting points in the past, lol

couldn't resist :P

To the day I was born.

Or perhaps to when I was 16.

I don't really feel a need to experience another time I guess.

Though it would be cool to go see dinosaurs, but then again you might get ripped apart and eaten :(

Ancient India.

or possibly 1850's Concord, so I could hang out with Thoreau and Emerson.

or maybe just maybe into the distant misty prehistoric past... several hundred million years at least.... so I could finally have some alone time to think.

I'd go forward in time to when they have the cure for aging and make myself immortal.

Hmm, :scratch: probably back in time to simply visit some people whom would one day become famous but, I'd not interfere though merely observe..
