Say you have a time machine and you could go back to any era you wanted to, you can be seen and you can talk to other people, and be part of that time and culture.  Where would you go? and why.  Mind you there are no harsh consequences to your actions.

Great, now here's the deal--I'm willing to drop my usual fee but there are some stipulations--I must be able to wear a cool costume--something in the way of, say, an Archangel. But no fluffy cotton or gossamer, we are going for extreme shock value here. Also, I must be guaranteed an effective entrance and exit. I'm talking serious laser lights, lightning effects, small explosions, smoke, smell of sulphur, etc. You know, the whole rock show scene. But I'm with ozzy, no bleeping bubbles please.

Now here's the scene--follow me on this--I travel through time carrying lifetime supplies of birth control pills, visiting the mothers of various despots and dictators--I can improv a speech, or someone can write one, about how God has commanded them to take this magical elixir...we can call it manna or something--
and after giving instructions on proper administration of said oral contraceptive, BLAM!!!! cracks of lightning, smoke, and voila! I disappear.

So...whatdya think? If it's a deal, be assured that I would ask for no monetary recompense, just the usual refreshments included in the "riders" of my standard contract--you know--a couple of cases of Rolling Rock beer, Crown Royal, some finger sandwiches, a case of Evian, olives, and a cheese platter, a veggie tray, and a large bowl of m&m's with the brown ones removed--all waiting for me and my entourage upon my return to the present time period.



So...if it's a deal, I'll just fax you the contract. Let me know. I do have a schedule to work around!

*chokes* Serenity, you are too much! Next time you post something like that, let me know before I read it, so I remember to put my drink down... *cleans purple drink off monitor* yuck. heh.

I would go back in time to predict the future. Then everyone would listen to me, and I could ask for anything I want and get it... heh... I would predict the fall of the Roman Empire, etc. hee.

And excuse my strange speech. I worry myself sometimes.

serenity, I thought it was funny though.  

Okay, Okay, so maybe it's a paradox, and maybe we could change the world as we know it, and maybe just maybe we could wipe ourselves off the face of the universe.  But hey, it's a nice Fantasy.

I'd go back to medieval France (as a member of a noble family of course -- hey, they had the nicer dresses in France), and cause millions of men to fall madly in love with me and *ahem* my money, and then I'd break their hearts and go marry a Roman
Hey, a girl can dream, can't she?

Personally, I would like to go back in time WITH running water and tolits!   Like ohh lets say back when Bill Gates was starting out...or all the dot coms I would buy up a bunch of domain names.

I'd want to go back to the 60's..not sure why. that whole time period and everything that happened then really appeals to me. The music, the culture, the controversy...Maybe just because im young and have no idea....???

serenity,

I think we should. Ya know I never undestood the reason behind those little sugar pills they stick in.

Christopher,

I tell you what you go patent it and will work out the messy details later.

By the way 60's would be cool, but I DO NOT want to go back to the 70's two words BROWN PLAID! YACK.

Anicent Egypt. I know, so typical, but it's a culture that I find to be interesting. Maybe I've just watched the History Channel one too many times.
