    I would go back to the day before the The Last PowerBall Jackpot, buy a ticket and make sure I wrote down the winning numbers, and wait till the next day.

    I would be rich then I wouldn't care if I went back or forward anymore...hehehehehe

    I would without a doubt. I would go live around 1940. LOVE that time period. I would go see Cab Calloway, Louis Prima, Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, and Ella Fitzgerald live. I would be driving around in a Ford Tudor Coupe. Ever guy wearing a suit and hat when going out, because it was the proper thing to do.

    I would also have a chance to be one hell of an apostate since the Witnesses were a much smaller group at that time.

    I would travel back in time and hook up with the Hotties of old. Nefertiti, Sheba, Cleopatra, etc.

    1000000 years BC so I could get a nice look at Rachel Welch in that fur bikini.

    I'd head for the future myself. That's what I'm interested in. I'd love to explore new planets. Or check out the ruins of this one.

    In a heartbeat, I would marry the girl I've always loved.

    OOOH, OOOH!!! I got to do that one, after I came out of that krazy kult!!

    Me, I'd travel back to ancient Rome on the Ides of March and convince Gaius Julius Ceasar to protect himself before he was slain in the Senate. Had Ceasar fulfilled his plans of expansion the Roman empire may well have lasted another 500 years longer than it did, perhaps even 1000 years. Hopefully the Library in Alexandria would have been preserved, our level of knowledge would come much faster, we might have had heavier than air flight 1000 years ago instead of 100 years ago. Who knows what might have happened, I suspect the world would be a uniquely different place.

    I don't think I'd change anything in my past, though the idea is tempting. However, I like who I am now, and it's the cummulative effect of all that took place before that has determined who I am today.

    I sawashow on time travel recently that proposed the ide that if you go back in time then you change the future and cannot go back to where you came from, because you have altered the timeline, thereby creating an entirely new time line altogether. Kind of interesting to think about at least.

    I might go back to the world of the cowboy like animal suggests, but I think I would head to the future instead to see my kids and their kids and their kids and their kids etc...has anyone ever read the Robert Heinlein book called Lazarus Long or Farnham's Freehold? Great reads for you science fiction freaks.

    Anyone remember the TV show from the 1960's - "Time Tunnel" - that was a great show (although I watched the reruns). I was always fascinated by the premise from an early age, although I knew then it wasn't possible. If I could and know I'd be back next week for another episode - surely!

    If I could travel to the past, I would go back to 1962 and rescue a newborn baby boy from an incestous childhood and years of neglect.


    First I'd go back to 1962 and kick some ass !!!

    Then for me it would be the Cowboy days. Miss Kitty from Gunsmoke- yep!!!

    Wow, aren't you a sweetie! My knight in shining armor. Hey, being raised in Wisconsin sounds good to me! But do I have to cheer for them Cheeseheads?
