Time travel is one of my all time fantasies. What would you do if you could travel through time?
Only in Biffland would spaghetti be outlawed. What about the westerns?
Oh god that’s illegal? *Hides bowl*
Probsly go and find me i dino egg and turn it into an omlette.
MMmmmmm… Dino breakfast
Let me guess. He’s the reason it was outlawed.
If I could travel back in time I would take Chuck Norris to roundhouse kick Hitler in the face while he’s on the can.
i would deffinatly buy a bunch of transformers from the 80s
I would ensure the survival of the Samurai, never let them fade away.
I would invest heavily in some Mcdonalds when it first came out. then I would never have to worry about money ever again.
That or eat the pizza in the fridge before it went bad.
Macabelle would save president lincoln, then Kennedy, then claim them to make a super hero team. Macabelle must reflect on this.
If I could travel through time, I would probably… relive a trip! I take trips to visit different people sometimes, mostly internet friends. If I could go back in time, I would plan one trip, then jump to before I did that and use the money to go on a different trip, etc…
None of my friends would remember me visiting, but I’d still have had fun and could tell them about it later, as well as giving them yet another reason to ponder whether or not I’m truly psychotic.
i’d save president kennedy…
thus reoginizing all the security agencies, starting a social revolution, at least one world war, space travel (not just exploration), and the end of the american empire….
or own an island…. or small country…. watever is easier….
Wow… nothing smashed… no one mutilated… a problem that isn’t Biff’s fault… Him solving the problem… I’m impressed! perhaps there’s hope for our mischievous friend yet yet
time travel? first, go back a couple of months and make sure I avoid leaving the house, so the fateful ‘incident’ never occurs.
then, I’ll go back a little more and save the Dreamcast.
This question proves to my I’m a geek: if I could time travel I’d just go to the future, to a point after all the webcomics I follow have been completed then read all of them in their entirety.
Lucretiel, don’t get your hopes up, he was probably the reason it was outlawed in the first place (Lots of slippings or stranglings? Or a giant spaghetti-monster incident?)
Personally, I’d go get myself a pet dinosaur, invest in something worthwhile, put ten pounds in the bank when it first started and come back to pull it out when it had gathered loads of interest, never fail a history paper again, invent something in the future, get Anna a record label, assasinate the Crazy Frog guy before he got the idea, set Justin Timberlake up with someone in a remote place so we’ll never hear of him again, make sure we don’t need to move house, and… I’m sure I’ll think of more.
i would punch random people in history in the face, not the important people, just random people from like, 1781 or 900 B.C or maybe in the future, go slap some magnets on robots, time travel would be awesome, be disruptive all over history!
I would travle back in time and entry to lottery and become filthy rich. Then I could have a have a swimming pool full of apple juice and a talking shrew and a roller skating badger.
I would go back in time to when MS bought the DOS OS, then go into partnership with Bill Gates and then come back to the present and be a multi-billionare
I would go back to 1980 and tell steve jobs not to trust Bill Gates, then to 1984 and show the two steves what Macs evolved into (mac OSX), go to 1996 and buy £1,000 worth of shares in apple, 1999 and buy £1,000 of shares in Google, return home and become one of the richest men on earth, and probably go emo and go back in time a few months and kill myself o_O
Hum it might be kind of a geeky answer, but I’m a big fan of the history chanel so there are a ton of things I’d like to be able to use a time machine to do.
1. Find out why stone hinge was built.
2. Find out why that one culture built those giant animal symbols in the ground that could only be seen from the sky.
3. Meet the anchent Myans and make copies of their astrolagy/future prediction scrolls before European preachers come over and destroy all but a half dozen of them.
4. Investagate Area 51 as it happens (though knowing my luck I’d turn out to be the “alien landing” XD)
5. Watch 300 in real time.
and 6. Just plan investage historical sights/cultures/people that historians have been theorizing about for yeats. Then once I know the information, never tell anyone and laugh at them for not knowing.
Spaghetti outlawed? Darned anti-pastos!
Who would DARE outlaw spaghetti?!
Okay, now that that issue is off my chest, I’d probably time-travel in an observational capacity. Y’know, go back in time to various time periods to learn how things were done, take in the sights, avoid being slaughtered by paranoid natives, etc.
TAKE A SCRAMBLED EGG GO BACK IN TIME SO I CAN SEE THE EGG WHOLE
I would go back to when the N64 was popular and give my younger self money so i could have bought more than two games for it. Then i would go to the future to when the aliens invade/destroy our planet and then know how to stop ‘em when it happens.
it depends on what kind of time travel it is. is it the kind where your actions can effect the future so that you wont be home when you come home? if so, i don’t want to do anything because temporal mechanics makes my head hurt–and it’s best not to mess with this stuff.
or is it the kind where you can only travel in your own life time? that’s not very exciting so i don’t want to bother with that either.
or is it the kind where you can’t effect the major events of history, but you can effect the minor? i don’t want to travel back in time and get thrown in jail or executed because i know what’s going to happen, so i wouldn’t bother with that.
or is it the kind where you can go any where at any time, you can’t effect anything, and no one can see or hear you, and all you can do is watch events unfold? in this case, i agree with trueblaze i would go back and try to solve the mysteries of history–mostly those revolving around the deaths and burial locations of ancient Egyptian Pharaohs, because that’s where my main interest lies. maybe I’d take time out to find out who the real scorpion king was or to prove that written language developed independently in several different regions of the world.
I would go back to the day i fought back agenst bullies, but lost. I’d be like “RUUUUNNNN LITTLE MEEEEE!!!!”
I knew he lived in the future!
First of all, IS Biff responsible for making spaghetti outlawed? It seems likely that one of his innovations could have gone horribly, horribly wrong.
If I could time travel, I’d make sure my parents kicked some serious bootay in the 80′s-90′s stock market (“…seriously, you two! Yahoo, Microsoft, and Starbucks! Trust me!”)
Then I’d use the money to enslave all of humanity.
I would travel back in time to talk to my grandparents again. I loved my german grandma and my german grandpa was always fun.
My nanny was great, but a penny pincher, well it’s how she grew up. Never meant my british grandfather. Too bad.
Would love to talk to them again, especially now that I am old enough to understand WWII and I would love to hear their stories.
Also, spaghetti was probably banned because of the chaos it creates!
I saved a soy meatball in my freezer.
It’s turned black, but I still take it out
and play with it. I dream of white noodles
and black soy balls smiling in red sauce.
i would go back to when something was worthless,get a whole bunvh of them and go forward to when their worth millions.i would be rich
I’d go back about 30 years.
Where would I go? Well travelling to the prehistoric past or the amazing technological future are always popular options. Others are the nice dream of going back to stop Hitler before he rose to power (I figure if killing him can stop him, less intense methods should also work, I’d just sorta screw up whatever dinner got him an “in” with the nazis).
However, my personal fantasy is taking a handful of modern technology, like my PSP for example, and impressing MYSELF with it when I was a child. I’d do things like sit around in some lobby and play the thing while talking about “President Bush messing things up in Iraq”, only they would be none the wiser that I meant a totally different Bush! Haha! Also I’d try to “hide” things like the year 2005 on a device and so on.
Who would go back to the 20′s, besides me?
I wonder if Biff’s attempt to go back to a time before spaghetti was outlawed was what resulted in it being outlawed?
But if that were the case the future of Biff would have to exist before the previous Biff. Otherwise he’d have no reason to go back to change it since it wouldn’t have been outlawed the first time through.
I would go back in time to gather various versions of my younger self, and use our collective knowledge and rescources to effectively rule the world for all time. Who needs money when the everyone is your servant?
Oh, and 37th post.
I would finally figure out which came first the chicken or the egg….crafty chicken eggs >_
Bowl of spaghetti is outlawed, but not a plate of it. ;3
As for going back in time… I’ve always wanted to take movies of the current era with their realistic CGI and take them back in time to trick people. Like Jurassic Park or something. Think how hard that movie would freak out people of the past! I think the one I’d truely like to do though, is take back the Lord of the Rings trilogy and let Tolkien himself see it. That just feels epic to me.
A future without spaghetti?!?! :O Count me out!
Spaghetti, outlawed!?!? *eye twitches*
List of things I would do if I could time travel.
Make a load of money on the stock market.
Make a load of money on collectibles.
Kill George Lucas.
Kill the person who created the first computer virus.
Go into the future, steal a bunch of technology, go back to the past and “invent” them.
Did I mention kill George Lucas? I think I did.
Whoops! I almost left without my Biff book.
Progressive rock and free roaming spaghetti will have to wait until publishing.
Macabelle realizes what he should do. Macabelle should go back in time and get the first post on every biff comic ever made. Excellent thoughts. Macbelle is so evil.
Go back in time with a lot of money and by all the cool old cars like GTO’s and charger’s then put them in a where house. Then by a lot of the old toys put them in there as well. Then when the internet was made get the big stores URL’s like walmart kmart samsclub then when they want them sell them to them for tons of money. Take all the money I have put it in a save box. Hide the key some where no one will look go to are time get my key and then go get all my stuff and sell the toys at comic con and sell the cars ((But one 1969 Shelby GT 500.)) for tons since the rich people all want them cars. Then I would take some of my money and give it to you so we can get the books sooner!
Kaoss – Hey that last part sounds pretty good.
I would get a Delorian and make my Dad really happy.
I’d probably go hang with Buddha. That’d be swell, it would.
Wouldn’t you need a Delorian to go back in time?
you people are dumb…. the spageti is outlawed because remember when biff always forgets to hold on to the fork when slurping spatgeti? it stabs him in the forehead!
oh and if i could go into the time-stream….
let’s just say the world would be comepletely different….
Mayan language would be understood, the playstation one would still be around, x-box would have been invented sooner than it was, i would invest $2 in McDonalds, $2 in BurgerKing, steal Bill Gates idea for the internet, save to indians from their homes being taken away, invent my game called Pocket sized before whatever game my friend says it was like, bring solar power and hyybrid engines back so it is actually invented, stop my self from doing anything really dumb, bring back a lightsaber from the future, get myself a ninja suit, get a laser gun from the future, and invest $5 in the bank.
i still think time travel with which you can’t be seen is best. a pasty, redheaded girl suddenly showing up in ancient Egypt in order to figure out how King Tut died or who actually built the Great Sphinx and how old it really is would be double plus ungood. do you have any idea what they thought of redheads in most of the world at that time? i am not going to be executed as a witch!
if i could travel back in time, i would invest in every succesful company known to man, THEN buy every transformers toy from the 80s and THEN bring Bruce Lee back to kick Norris’s ass and then challenge Segata Sanshiro. After that… I guess I’d start working on robots to take over the world. MUWAHAHAHAAA!!
I would go back in time and get first post on every comic thus far.
Here’s a questioning question to blow your brain. I’m constantly stuck on this one: I often think how great it would be to go back and buy something that was once cheap, and then put it in storage in the past, come forward in time, and then sell the mint product, for example, a 59 Corvette. they were what? $1200 when they first came out, now a mint is worth $70,000 or so. But how would you buy them in the past? They wouldn’t take your future money and liquidized wealth suck as gold would loose it’s value in the time travel. Can anyone come up with a way to use the money you have now to buy something cheap in the past?
Alex – All you have to do is take something with you that is cheap now that would be worth a lot of money in the time period you are traveling to.
a nice big hard drive. a 1 MB hard drive rand like what, $2K when they came out? think how mcuh a 400 GB hard drive would be worth in the past.
I’d save the Library of Alexandria from being destroyed, both times. I’d also bring a crew with a bunch of digital cameras, image scanners, computers and a electric generator with as much diesel fuel as needed to power all the gear long enough to copy everything from the library.
Next, I’d put together a computer with a TV card and several terabytes of storage then drop it somewhere in the UK where it won’t be bothered. Then I’d go over there today and pick up the complete collection of Dr. Who episodes. (Also all the Benny Hill stuff and several other good shows the BBC lost when they sold their old steel tape archives for scrap!)
And finally, I haul enough stuff back to 1951 to pawn to rais enough cash to buy a brand new 1951 Hudson Commodore Hollywood hardtop club coupe. Naturally it’d be loaded with a 308 cubic inch straight 6, Twin-H Power, Hydramatic transmission and everything else from the options list.
Chris – I know =)
I’d definitely go back to the time of the Greeks, with Socrates and Plato.
And Rome too Definitely Rome.
new idea: go back to 1948 and found out exactly how Jacqueline Natla got rich. the copy those methods and be head of my own mining corporation. a legal one, Lara’s shot me in the past, and it hurt.
I would go back before you’ve made the Biff comics and put all the one’s you’ve made now on the internet so I would be cool and no one would know you exist. >:D
No, not really. I’m joking. Really. But I would eat EVERY PLATE OF CHINESE FOOD I’ve eaten before over again.
I’d also go back and change everything I did that I regretted or thought was stupid of me.
Get the entire collection of Dr. Who in decent quality (time travel, best preservation there is) without getting it cancelled accidentally and transfer it to DVD or memory stick. Actually I’d get doubles of all the missing ones so that the BBC could have them back.
Make sure my time capsule is interesting to the people in the future when they find it
Find out why loads of history stuff happened
Stop DP, Fruits Basket and other good shows being cancelled
More will come, but I’ll stop posting, it must be getting boring.
We already know that the egg came first actually, it’s fairly simple.
I understand the time stream mechanics if anyone needs it explaining, it’s really not as complicated as all those scifi programs make it sound. They always explain in such roundabout ways. Then again, you probably can’t explain time streams without going round in circles. It’s easy to grasp, hard to explain.
I’ll shut up now.
Chris, you seem to have inspired lots of theories on here!
Was it Biff’s fault in the first place that Spaghetti was banned?
Yay! Im back from vacation and biff is encroaching on the 300th comic! awesome!
hmm, i’d probably go check out all the “Alien” sightings, see if they were real.
maybe even meet one, bring back some cool gadgets.
I would go back to some old and simple civilisation use modern technology to make them worship me as a god and just have a great time ever after.
Who needs money if you could be worshipped as a god?
I can just see the outlawing of Rammen…good things like that will be like cocaine this days in bout 9 years if this really happens
Macabelle gets it! It is because people refuse to eat spaghetti in a bowl! only on a plate! That’s why Biff thinks it’s outlawed! Is macabelle correct?
I would go back and stop my mom from getting in that car wreck.
Time travel is a very interesting thing. The last thing we need is a time paradox, right?
Id go back in time with my computer, and share the tech, then go farther and fight the civil war, only with fully automatic macheneguns like the SAW, and with tanks, yeah, that sounds fun
If spaghetti is outlawed then only outlaws will have spaghetti!!!
Louis I’ll come with you and we can Party!! Oh and I’d get rich and go back to the art school that wouldn’t let Hitler in and give him a scholarship. Maybe he’d have turned out better, and the WWII could have been avoided.
As much as I want a dinosaur omlette, I’d probably just take my suit of aluminum chainmail back and sell it to a king for a fortune. Aluminum was worth more than gold once. Then some guy figured out how to refine it. I might get some aluminum sheets at home depot too. and the king might want an aluminum foil hat. Mweheheheheheh…
that or use paradox to multiply myself a thousandfold and take over the world.
Speaking of saving shows from cancellation, or premeditated murder.
My first post on the Biff webcomics
I’ve painstakingly read each comic from around 239 and back when I started reading it.
Ok alot of people have been thinking of going back in time and stopping Hitler.
A good idea.
But you forget.
If Hitler hadn’t started the war, the American economy wouldn’t have jumpstarted the way it had.
We’d be a third-world country, or not even a country at all.
It’s a double-edged sword.
That’s how it would have worked out…
And no spaghetti? That makes Wade very sad.
Well I just thought I’d post my thoughts.
I’d invest a lot of money in Microsoft when they were just getting started.
I would try to kill myself to see if it worked. Hopefully not.
congrats to all the people who would change parts of history, you’ve just ended the world as we know it by making a huge time paradox where posibly things like WWII wouldnt happen and possibly some of the worlds greatest minds would never be born. time is a simple concept it’s like a tree it started as a single line then as decisions are made it splits into a stream where each decision is lived out, and this happens with every decision that is made no matter how small, even things like should i get up now or in 5 minutes, this also brings about the alternate realities theory and if it is to be belived that would mean several billion realalities are created on earth in one rotation alone.
but it is only human nature to want to change things.
if i could travel in time i would be an observer, i’d probably spend a while in the 18th century as a bounty hunter using time travel to find my mark by finding out his/her location on a certain day and go back to that day and wait.
i would also think about fighting in WWII as a lone wolf, mainly because if i made direct contact with a relitive i could cause a paradox and colapse the dimension
does he have meatballs in there?
I’ve actually thought about this. I wouldn’t do anything to change or even witness historical events. Any minute change can affect everything. Instead, I’d keep repeating moments where something cool happened. Then when I let time continue as normal, it’s as though it all happened at once. Overwhelmed with awesome.
I`d go back to 2004,and shoot the guy who made the Series of Unfortunate Events movie.
Snicket must`ve been drunk when he agreed to that.
I would discover the the meaning of the stone tablet they found on Easter Island.
Knowing from experience how time travel tends to create parallel timelines and not affect anything much, and how things tend to work themselves out anyway, I don’t try to save the world or anything. The real reason to travel in time is the same as traveling anywhere, to see the sights and have fun. ^_^
I do not know that I would change a thing about my own life. What I have done, mistakes and blunders included, are a part of what made me who I am today. I know I’m not perfect, but life isn’t about the value of things in your life, it’s about valuing your life and the things/people that are a part of it. I would probably destroy the time machine.
I would learn German then go back and listen to Einstein’s last words, the nurse on duty when he died could not speak German. Maybe I would be like the Cronomantic from Star-Slip Crisis. Then of course I would HAVE to go to the near future and make a fortune in stock.
Maybe I would be like a temporal Noah’s Ark. I will save animals and plants from extinction and have the world’s best zoo. From Dinos to Dodos, that’ll be our motto.
no..no..no spaghetti? that makes cybrina angry!!! YOU DON’T LIKE ME WHEN I’M ANGRY!!!
if i went back in time i would probably
1. save presidents from being assassinated
2. bet on sports and such and win BIG!!
3. stop global warming, and all the other things happening today
or 4. stop myself from making friends w/ that kid and i would never have gotten pneumonia!!
I would love to go back to the early 1990′s, when things were simpler and my mother would break up the fights between me and my sister.
If were to go back in time I’d go back to when I first kissed my boyfriend.
And I’d also go back to the time I spent with my guildies on a game I once played…those were fun days. Lol, I’m not a geek >.>.
i would go to the future and get force fields and lasers, and then go back to the romans and beat the crap out of everyone. (i got that off of the comic Rob and Elliot)
I’d go to the late 1800s and run a huge scam in order to get lots of money. I’d probably get caught, but President Grant would let me off with just a slap on the wrist and I’d leave my money to myself in the future which, with all those years of interest, would be huge-mega-bucks.
If I could time-travel, I’d go back in time and force myself to do that project that I waited until the last minute to do.
first time I’ve commented, started reading yesterday, wanted to reply to the time travel question, I’d go to ancient greece and see helen of troy. I wanna see if the face really could launch a thousand ships.
They’re illegal, just like the tacos which went extinct
I’d learn Japanese, dye my hair, get old-fashioned clothes, and try out Sengoku Oden (which is supposedly extinct).
Interesting thing. Time machines only work if you’re going by whole years or have a self-propelled space suit. Time-SPACE machines, on the other hand…
We have time machines. They’re called clocks.
If i could, I would travel back in time to meet up with my 6 year old self. I would say “If you grew to my age, you would thank me.” I would then kill him….
I have some childhood issues
I’d try to destroy the space-time continuum with a whole mess of paradox.
i’d go to woodstock ’69
No, Nat. You could not go forward to read all the webcomics because he has not written them yet, therefore they do not exist and will not if you go forward in time. Since forward time travel is impossible because certain things have not had their effect yet, you would probably just be sucked into a void and would die there.
Sorry if I sounded like a nerd just now. If the whole time travel thing worked, I would go forward past the ’08 election to find out who our next president would be. Then I would go to my science teacher when he was a kid and be his best friend* and tell him who his wife would be and what he would name his kids and that he would be a science teacher who wanted to be an entomologist.
* My science teacher is the coolest in the world. My class thinks he’s awesome and so do all the rest of the classes. It’s always hands on experiments. We have not opened the book a single time this year in science and it’s March. He seems to favor me over everyone else though. Not sure why. Maybe it’s because we both love science in general.
dude, if spagetti were ever outlawed, i would go insane. i LOVE italian food, being italian myself.
I’d make an army of me’s by constantly going back to meet myself at a specific point in time and take over a small country. Of course I’d make money with the stock market first so that we were well armed and taken care of.
When Josh wakes up he would rewind time to just before he fell asleep so he would be more rested.
I would stop myself from giving away my SNES
hey long time reader first time posting
i would like most people invest money so i never have to work to live but just work for loving it (i want to be a mod artist = piercings tattoo’s)
and look if jesus was real or just a random charismatic village idiot
I’d find out what happened to Emelia Earheart.
Then I’d do the bank account trick and end up wealthy.
After that, this cat’d just coast the timeline, being the mysterious stranger who helps people out in their time-a need, using my money to help them if needed.
I’d take Hitler back to my own time right before he would have committed suicide. It would be immensely satisfying to watch all the creative ways the Jews would find to torture him.
I wouldn’t plan anything big; just go back to the beginning of my computer sciences course and actually DO those assignments. They weren’t hard, I was just lazy. And I won’t look out of place; my appearance hasn’t changed in — what, five months? Well, I do have more of a tan on my left arm from driving, but I wore long-sleeved shirts in the winter, so that wouldn’t be noticed.
If I could go back in time…
I’d unoutlaw myself…
go back and meet a 13 year old Chris and say somthing like “Dude! in the future you’re gonna be an awsome webcomicist!”
-go back to when Hitler was 5 and beat the living crud out of him
-talk to J.K.Rowling when she first got the Harry Potter Idea. then steal it.
-stop Kurt Colbain’s suicide.
-go meet my grandpa when he was my age
-Neuter(sp?) George Bush Sr. to prevent the birth of George W.
-interveiw Jesus for a history report. (how cool would that be?)
and a whole buncha other stuff, but i don’t want to make this too long
Warn Europe about Hitler.
Warn Abraham Lincoln.
Warn John Lennon.
Make friends with Jesus.
Neuter Kim Il-sung’s father.
Go back to 1900 and beat the living nightlights out of li’l Adolf.
And tell Biff where his brain is hid.
I would save ghandi then go meet john hunter the famous anatomist.
@JarkJark: The thing is, even if you did warn those people, they’d probably discount them. Especially Europe between-Wars; they had so many possible threats to deal with.
i would bring every famous historicaly significant person and use them to pass my oral history exam. Then i’d go back to 1995 and buy a glass bottle of coke.
if i could go back i would hmmmmm go take a sword come back and kill bush then go back and eat a pinnapple in newzealend
If I could time travel, I’d go back in time, steal my younger selves comic books and video games, then I’d go to the future and read all the Biff comics, go back to present time, and tell everyone what the next comic would be every day until Chris goes insane.
Then I would regret it and go back in time to stop myself.
I would visite the old days see what it was like back the, from around 1700 and up and see how the land evolves.
I live in denmark and i am very interested in local history so i would have a great time.
I’d make Jesus and Hitler have a fight with custard pies. And then post a video of it on the internet.
Ensure major historical events went off without a hitch.
(Various assassinations, starts of wars, horrible inhuman events, etc.)
And then go forward and gank some important people.
If I could time travel, I’d go back in time and tell my younger self to learn more languages while I was still young and my brain was still fresh. I’d love to have learned more when I was a kid! I never cared about French in school, and because I live in Canada I had to take it ’til I was in grade 10. But it never stuck. Now that I’m learning Japanese, I want to learn way more, like German and French and some other ones, like maybe Korean or Spanish. Iduno, whatever.
For fear of putting myself into a state of constant paranoia, however, I would not warn myself about that drunk driver the summer after I graduate high-school… I survived, anyway. Plus the lawsuit DID pay for my exchange to Japan, which I’m currently still on!
I would take about 250 dollars, go to the past. Buy a large plot of land and build a nice house for my future family to live in. Put money in the bank so that it would collect and actually be there, so that my parents would have something better than the financial problems we’re having now… And to make sure that all requirements are met, the house will be a one-floor plan with my room at the opposite end of the house than my parents’, and sturdy, polished oak floorboards with reinforced brick walls. That sounds about right.
im going to say this in all capitals so u understand IF ANY OF U WENT BACK IN TIME NOTHING WOULD HAPPEN THERE WOULD BE NO MORE MONEY FOOD OR ANTHING CAUSE U WOULD HAVE ALREADY DONE THAT THE SAMURAIS WOULD STILL BE GONE CAUSE IT WOULD HAVE BEEN UR FAULT THEY DISSAPEARED IN THE FIRST PLACE
Don’t ruin peoples fun. Not cool.
I’d put right what once went wrong. And I’d knock out the bastard who stole my copy of Pokémon Trading Card Game for the Game Boy Color in 2001.
kill micheal jackson…
If I had only one chance to go back in time, I’d go to the 17th century, visit Polynesia while it was still paradise, and then write books that would confuse all contemporaries and be much wondered about back in the present.
Re. Lich King’s complaint, you seem to hold the belief there is and can only be one timeline. If we respect that belief, would you do the rest of us a favor and respect that other people think differently? Also, it’s a very boring way to imagine time travel, if you’ll pardon me saying so.
I’d either become a stock market genius, or a historic movie producer (movies so real it’s like they traveled back in time with a camera!)
If I could time travel, I would first go to the future and get a super-computer microchip thing that can hold a nearly infinite amount of information, then go to every single place in the universe since the beginning of time, and document everything(and I mean everything, from the first ever lifeform to the specific direction a certain atom moved at a certain time). I would then roam the universe, preventing rouge time travelers from screwing up the time-space continuum for the rest of eternity.
If I coluld go back in time, I would go back to the stone age and steal a club, then go forward in time and sell it to a museum for billions of pounds (or whatever currency they used), then spend it on a super computer that can create anything out of nothing and store tonnes of info, and do practically anythign I want it to.
And a robot. I would also buy a robot.
Hmmm… the question was about traveling through time, not just into the past or future. That could also mean across time — so I think it would be interesting to see alternative time streams, such as a realm where the dinosaurs didn’t get killed off, or the Europeans never had anyone sail across the Atlantic. It would be interesting to see what the world would be like this year, if Romulus and Remus had been eaten by the she-wolf instead of being raised by her.
I would mess with history until dragons were glitched into existance, steal a baby one, undo all the stuff I did (so only I had a dragon), and return only a second after I left, with a dragon pet.
I wouldn’t have eaten that strange mushroom in 2002
I know at least two fatal car crashes I would try to prevent (Princess Di and my aunt Susan).
i would go back in time and tell my grandpa that if he didn’t stop smoking, he would get cancer and die. and then i would steal all of his ciggarets whenever he got a box.
hmmm…i’d become friends with a caveman, get myself a pet Mammoth, and become the guy who invented cheese.
hmmm…i’d also skip ahead in time and get myself Cyberized.
Time travel eh? Well, you see, I’ve actually been planning this for some time. I just have to build my time machine first. So, it’s like this: I’d go back to the Stone Age with all my knowledge of future tech I’d build an empire out of diamond and rule over it, it would be good.
