    Time Machine

    If you had a time machine that could only make one round-trip journey to any point IN THE PAST, where and when would you go, and why?

    Discuss.

    And don't worry about this little flaw in the logic.



    Other than that, the logic is foolproof!

    I would travel to your house 3 minutes before you posted this, and would shoot you in the face.

    Re: Time Machine

    Would do pretty much what Lou did in Hot Tub Time Machine. Except Jorgle just doesn't roll off the tongue like Lougle.

    Well I thought we could have a fun conversation for a little while before it spiraled into a Hawk-bashing thread, but apparently not.

    Re: Time Machine

    Would go back to 1912 and be on the Titanic the night it sunk. I would ask to survive, but that would be a crazy expierence.

    Re: Time Machine

    I would go back to my freshman year of college and re-live my college experience.

    Let me help you out a little here. Oh, so many possibilities:

    Beer hall in Munich in the 1930’s and blow up the beer hall along with Hitler and his henchman to be. Make good with the escape in a vintage, but fast, Mercedes!

    Maybe spend a day at the Battle of the Bulge with my dad (remembering to keep my head down since returning to 2012 is important). This is assuming my Munich mission failed.

    Return to 1971 and take another shot at that cute Tri Delta. Might not come back to 2012.

    1999 and say “Why yes, I’d love to move to San Diego with you”. Again might miss the return trip to 2012.

    Pop into Strawberry Point in the 1920’s and see my grandfather as the railroad station agent.

    Visit Lyndon Johnson in 1963 and say "LBJ, old buddy, Vietnam, not such a good idea, stick with the Civil Rights Act stuff and just let SE Asia ride out on its own."

    Cycle Williams Field 1972, "Johnny, go for two, I have a bad feeling about the kick."

    Re: Time Machine

    If in the future, somebody were to make a time machine.. then where are all of the time travelers?

    Re: Time Machine

    I would go to the beginning of time, and use my knowledge of time travel to change the universe so time travel is impossible . . .
