Post Time Travel
If you could visit any point in history, where would you go and why?
EDIT: I'd like to assume that we're just visiting and NOT changing the past.

hmm....I don't know, either go to a point that is a mystery to humans and watch the event happen or go back in time and go to a place where they say "Aliens helped them" and be that Alien :P

Are we allowed to change anything, or is this just alternate-collapsing-timeline tourism stuff, kupo?

I'd probably go to see Sir Francis Drake and play some bowls as we watched the Spanish Armada being sunk by the storms at sea. xD

Ya, cause my answer could be A) back to before humans existed and ponies reined supreme, Canterlot, or B) Renaissance Italy.

I would go back to before life emerged onto land. i would want to sit on the shore and watch the boundless ocean wash over the bare rock, thinking of how one day life will take over the land, but for now, I would be alone, in solitude, able to walk around in piece and quiet.

I'd prefer a time period with a breathable atmosphere, but that's just me.

Most of what I'd like to see are places I wouldn't want to stay at all. I'd want to see the Great Depression, maybe some 18th century colonial America- oh, and probably some Ancient Rome, maybe some Mesopotamia. But I'd definitely make sure to pack extra plutonium, because I am a fan of electricity and indoor plumbing.

I would go to 1969. Don't ask why, it's a long explanation.
But outside of that, I would go to 1982 and prevent Randy Rhoads from getting onto the plain when he died.

I'd go back in time to when the Earth was barren and lifeless and drop an egg salad sandwich on a beach somewhere.

Now counting the number of posts until someone gets the reference.

Man, I've thought a lot about this! :P

If I get to change things:

1910 Germany, assuming I get to hang around for the next 30 years, since it's a long term plan. 1837, Texas, I'd stick around for the next 15 years or so. 1855, US, sticking around for the next decade.

If I don't get to change anything I'd just go and hang around in the late 1880's.

I'd enact a plan to time travel back to the most recent tragic event and prevent it, come back to see how drastic the change caused, and go back and let it happen the way it should if the changes are too great. if the changes are minor and/or better than what was supposed to happen, I would go back to the nearest tragic event to the one I just fixed and repeat this process. If possible, I'd recruit others to my cause and we'd create the best reality possible.

If I could change things, I'd have to do a lot of research first, kupo. I'd basically be given the power to do a ridiculous amount of good for the world, and I don't want to squander it.

If it was just of the "tourism" variety, I'd probably go hang out with Jesus or check out the music scene in the 1700s, early 1800s or the jazz age, kupo.

I think that people would get suspicious if you had invested so many years ago and plan to cash in on it at the same age but many years later. also, you'd need to go back again when Microsoft starts failing to sell it and get the most out of your investment.

Why the late 1880's? Was there something interesting during those years?

Wrong :P It's the whole year! Something changed in a place after 1969. "The birds" are singing about it!

The b- b- b- b- bird bird bird, the bird's the- *shot*

In other news, I might like to go back to the time of the Roman empire. Besides the lead water pipes, it seems like a pretty nice place.

Ill chime in on this! Though im late as can be.

If what i did in that time period wouldnt alter the present, I would have to say I would go to December 31 1979 and live through the 1980s. I really wanted to be alive in the 80s. Something about experiencing the then new technology being created.... progression of time, seeing what my town looked like back then, meeting my family in the past...

If what I did altered the present, I would have told my dad not to quit his old job.

You know, that's actually a great idea. The 80s were the best years the world has ever gone through when it comes to music!

The 80's was a decade of excess. Most of the people that I know that were alive in the 80's say they enjoyed it.

And, yes, some of the best music was made in the 80s. I <3 80's New Wave and Pop. Michel Jackson's Thriller FTW!

Post Re: Time Travel
Future, duh Image

And unlike going back in time, that is much likely scientifically possible. For example you can put yourself in a statis for a long time or somehow use the time dilatation to slow down the time flow locally for a quite a short period of time (for you, relatively, that's why it's called theory of relativity, because it's all relative), but outside the significantly time dilated area, time will flow at much faster pace relatively to the time flow inside the dilated area (the time flow will remain the same in the outside world, relative to the outside world (well... if you only consider Earth and take into account only very significant changes, because time doesn't flow at the same pace everywhere in the universe and if we considered that, it would invalidate several previous statements) and it will seem very slow inside the time dilated area from the outer world perspective) so while just a few minutes pass for you, many years will pass outside, so you'll technically be in the future, which is future only relative to you of course, future relative to the future is present. The only problem is, that it's difficult to get back, since in theory, going back in time is significantly more complex, possibly even impossible.

Ooooh, new idea! Exploit time loops and blah blah to create an army of myself. What for? We'll think of that as we go along!

Also, going back to the late 90's and convincing Will Smith to accept the role of Neo in the Matrix. Since yes, he was the studio's first pick but he turned it down for some reason.
