Top five things you'd do with a Time Machine

Postby Justin Adams » Tue Aug 02, 2005 7:12 am

So I was thinking about what I would do if I had a time machine this morning, and I thought, "This would make a good random post on TPR".

So assuming you have a time machine, and there were no repercussions about visiting the past or the future as long as you didn't drastically change anything, what would you do? Try to keep it clean, since this is a family site. 8) Here's my list:

5. Check out who built the Sphinx and the Pyramids of Egypt

4. See if Jesus really existed and if he actually was the messiah, or just a regular guy with really good public speaking skills :P

3. Go 20 years into the future to see what the world will possibly be like when I'm 50 (only 20 years... argh! ;))

2. Go 300 years into the future to see if we're still even here, and if the world is like Star Trek or Firefly :)

1. Visit Disneyland in 1955 (yes, I'm a Disney geek)

Am I allowed to do things like assasinate Hitler and save John Lennon?

Why do I still have a donkey title???

^ Unfortunately I think that would be drastically changing something.

5. Go into the future and see if we have finally killed ourselves.

4. Visit Disneyland every year of operation prior to 1990. (I already visited every year after 1990)

3. Like Justin, go back to Egypt to see the Aliens building the Pyramids

2. Go back and check out Adam and Eve. Being the first woman I'll be Eve was a hottie.

1. Go back 2 weeks ago with the MEGA-Millions lotto numbers in hand and buy a ticket. Win $170 million.

1. Go back in time and TRY to stop 9/11.

2. Go about 10 years forward and see which parks got what.

3. Definately go back to Egypt like Gregg and Justin!

4. Go forward a million years and see what everything looks like.

5. Go forward an hour and eat lunch. I'm starving!

Gregg, you can't get the lotto numbers and win, and coasterdude, you can't stop 9/11. That's drastically changing something. You could mess up the space-time continuum and disrupt all matter in the universe. ;)

Ok, I've been watching too many episodes of Star Trek.

Seriously though, I have no idea where I came up with this idea. I guess I should travel back in time and ask myself why I thought of this... :P

5. Go back to the 70's and invest a hefty deal in Microsoft.

4. Go back pretty fast and watch all of everything happen in reverse till I eventually got to see how it all REALLY happened.

3. Go back to the 60's and 70's to see a few bands play!

2. Go back and correct a few of my own personal mistakes.

1. Bring Jesus back to the present so he could yell at all of his followers... in Hebrew! :twisted:

This is a great thread!

But it's also really hard! I've been thinking a lot and I just can't come up with what I'd REALLY want to do...

Ok, I will post some stuff here, but am reserving the right to edit my list later!

1. Check out the Dinosaurs
2. Go at least 100 years into the future to see 'wassup'.
3. Find someway to make money that wouldn't 'mess up the space time continum'. :P
4. Find out who really discovered America first.
5. Check out that night when the whole Area 51 conspiracy started!

This is a very tough question, so i will just throw some random thoughts out there.

1. Go back to Palo Alto (1975) and join the homebrew computer club
2. Stand in front of the Dakota apartments (12.8.80) and wait to push Yoko in front of John
3. Travel back to 1959 and fix the heater on Buddy Holly's tourbus.
4. Go back to November 5th, 1955
5. Go back to September 8th, 1997 and register the domain "" :D
