If you could go anywhere IN THE PAST, where would you go? Or should i say when would you go?

Anywhere like half a year prior before a complany like Facebook or Apple was launched, steal their copyrights by just having them chronologically earlier, execute their ideas perfectly through modern day knowledge on what the companies did right and wrong, hire the actual creator and give him his actual position and make me a shareholder holding like 25% of the shares.

The money should be flowing at that point while I’m not fucking up any staff decisions I shouldn’t make as I don’t have a shareholders majority, keeping the company on its destined course to present day but now with me being filthy rich.

I’d go back in time and ambush Randomman and hide his body, and do what he was gonna do.

Then I’ll be back to where the mysterious stuff happened and learn the truth. Like where those Mayans have gone and stuff. I’ll just watch though~

But honestly, I don’t like the concept of going back in time to change something. Just sayin’~

Go back to the beginning of time to see if either this:

or this:

happens, or possibly a mix, or maybe even something totally unexpected. It would be interesting to know, and I could come back with the knowledge and then be a hero and make mountains of cash.

Well, if you saw that the Big Bang happened, then you’ll realize that what is happening now is a product of random movement of atoms and stuff~

If I really wanted to, I’d start back to my early middle-school experience. Made some real mistakes with some, well, lady-friends. But then again, I’d miss everything I love now.

The mid sixties. Then I can live through the late sixties/seventies and experience all the great music. Then when the eighties and early nineties come along I can experience all the old games in their original time period. Then in the late nineties when I was a kid, I’m gonna tell my former self all kinds of things that already happened to him and he wonders how I know things like that and freak him out/traumatize him.

Back to Year 6, before high school, slap myself straight so I won’t spend my first year acting like a gangster and permanently wrecking my social life.

I’d go way back and kill everyone with nuclear bombs. I’ll be the only one alive. Thank you, Lysandre.

I’ve been feeling home sick lately so going back to the golden age of Cybertron sounds perfect for me.

Time sure is precious…

Anyway, I’d go back to dinosaur times. I’d probably get killed, but it would be a glorious death.

North California in the 80s. I want to go back and forth between the L.A. Punk scene and the Seattle Grunge scene.

Go back in time to an art school in Germany and force them to hire hitler,
That might stop hitler from becoming an evil asshole, but he still be racist

Like @snowie I would go back to that time when the dinosaurs extinct and watch them die while I eat popcorn and then while I going back to my time I would try to shoot Hitler only to miss him and accidentally shoot down Kennedy, wait a minute.

I’d say stay. Just about everything that people are nostalgic about from their own past or are simply fascinated by from the distant past can be experienced just as well, if not better, in the present. And as for the “kill Hitler” type idea, by doing that you could accidentally create a “Super Hitler” that wipes out the entire human race without even realizing in. You just don’t wanna fuck with space-time.

I would go to Europe, particularly France, and live their between the 1910’s and 1920’s. I would be able to meet a lot of my favorite composers including Maurice Ravel, Claude Debussy, Erik Satie, Igor Stravinsky, and Béla Bartók.

I want to go back to when i was in the sixth grade and punch myself to prevent him from discovering the internet.

The day I was born, so I can prevent myself from becoming the poorly salvaged, procrastinating, massive fuck-up I am today.

Bust in and attempt to warn my past self about- OH CHRIST! clawed up by giant evil crab


In all seriousness, I would bust in to go literally educate my younger self and perhaps warned my parents earlier that I was trans.

Going back in time is worthless.

Going into the future, now that’s a prospect I can get a hold of.

Ironically enough, that’s what I believe in already in a way.

On the aspect of time travel, backwards travel is actually scientifically impossible. When you think about it, the very concept of going back in time is a paradox in itself. Going to the future is possible though, but not yet. The problem is that you can’t go back, and you might change the future in doing so since you have left the present and cannot carry out the role you were to carry in this time, and if you happen to be a very important person, shit would go down. I mean, imagine if MLK went to the future before he made his “I have a dream” speech. That would be a screwed up future.

So in a way, Furry is correct. Sorry for blowing your minds guys! I’m pretty glad going back in time isn’t possible though, because the implications of that would be devastating.

I’d go back to before you posted that and make that reference first.

I know, I don’t like changing stuff either. Notice how I said When would you go? and not what would you change
