If you could go back in time. Where would you visit? and why?
I'd go back to 85, grab as many Transformers as my U-Haul with Flux Capacitor could carry, and then bring them back and get them AFAd.
Oh, and i might stop some wars or assassinations or something.
Mitre Square, Whitechapel, 30 September 1888, 1:40 a.m. So I can find out who Jack the Ripper was.
I'd go back to 1066 and use newfangled technology to prevent the Viking invasion of Britain.
5 points for the reference.
I would love to go back to the 1890's of the Victorian Era. I don't know what area, but maybe the Northeast and Southeast. Also I would like to meet my Great- Grandfather when he was a kid.
1965 to see how my parents met only to learn that I f**ked up the present and then go back to 85 and make sure my parents get together at the school dance, play "Go, Johnny, Go!" on stage, head back to the better then usual present and then be taken to the future because there's something I need to so about my kids.
The song is called Johnny B. Goode.
Your kids are gonna love it.
Damn you, marvin barry!
Dallas, November, 1963.
Stand on the grassy knoll and shout 'Duck'
about 12 years backwards to tell me not to do certain stuff cos its gonna be a hell of a stupid rollarcoaster till everything is to a decent state of affairs.
Go back to the beginning of last years baseball season and put money on the Tampa Bay Rays making it to the World Series. I'd be rich, biatch!
Ford Theater, April 1865. Witness Lincoln's murder and have a rock ready to throw at Booth after he gives his latin speech.
Did you bypass your good taste chip?
I'd go back and buy a shitload of shares in a little company called Microsoft.
While I admire your idea, as I had a similar one that involved Star Wars toys, Transformers, Thundercats, Ghostbusters etc...every time I thought of that, I realize the dangers involved in it...time travel for personal gain is very dangerous. Paradoxes going off all over the place...as in, would you even of went back there to get all of those, if you already had them? Poor lil Johnny never got his Optimus Prime like he was supposed to back in 1985,...now because he didn't...he created a nuclear device that could blow up the world. Good news was, you got back in time to watch it blow up! Ok, sorry bout that...just saying, no one thinks of the consequences of changing what was supposed to be.
Anywho, if I were to go back in time...it would only be to witness certain events. Maybe see exactly who fire "the shot heard round the world". See who really shot Kennedy. Find out where Jimmy Hoffa dissapeared to. Somewhere, where I can just watch and see...without interfering. Because as much as I'd like to go back in time and stop a dictator from causing a war...doing so may have bad effects on the future...who knows...maybe if we killed Hitler and never had a second world war...we may of never got Transformers!
I'd go back to April 9, 1912 and buy a ticket for the RMS Titanic. I'd chat up the clientele, take some nifty polaroids that will be priceless in the future, sample the cuisine, rub elbows with John Jacob Astor and some other extremely famous people, and check out their library, which may or may not have included a copy of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's "The Lost World", as it was printed that same year. Then, on the night of the 14th, I'd sneak onto the bridge, cold conk the morons that aren't doing their jobs and conveniently go around the ice berg.
This will cause a paradox making Transformers obsolete
I'd go back in time and ruin a certain virgin's title.
