If you could back in time and change one thing what would it be ?

04/09/2013 at 00:15

The outcome of the 2001 play off final.

04/09/2013 at 07:34

I wouldn't change anything personally as you don't know the outcome! 

i would like to see though:

the making of the pyramids

london around the Jack the ripper era 

tudor times

what my town looked like in olden days

wouldn't it be great to just walk through your own village a hundred years ago and just observe

04/09/2013 at 08:54

the past and the future seren.

But you might meet your parents... and before you know it, you'll be disappearing from photographs.

The first rule of Time Travel is that you are not allowed to change anything.

But I would like to go back and observe London before the Great Fire.

There's nothing I woulCharente but I would love to have been around in the 60s to have a look 

04/09/2013 at 12:26

Not sure I'd I'd want to go back in time and change things, other than maybe to stop myself doing what with hindsight were mistakes.
If I could go back in time and just observe things then I'd probably go back and watch the Wright brothers doing their first flight or plant a homing device on Amelia Earhart's plane so that I could track it and find out what actually happened to her.

I'd go back to see how my parents met.

I'd accidentally prevent the moment they feel in love causing my mum to develop a crush on me.

I'd neary fade from existence but just manage to pull it together at the school dance so they fall in love by getting my dad to deck the such school bully who would take advantage of my mum.

Then a non dramatic return to the present in a lightning powered car leaving behind a trail of fire.

And stop my dad from smoking

04/09/2013 at 20:26

I'd like to go back to the day before I was born and have a bit of wander around the various places I have lived or visited since.

Would like to see Stonehenge being built as well

I would witness as many wars as I could. Sounds a bit weird and backwards but reading and watching doesn't quite bring the real horror to life and to feel what these people did for 5 minutes perhaps would change the way I think

I'm a bit confused by that statment. Presumably (unless you are actually Michael Gove) your current stance is anti-war with compassion to those who have suffered as a result of it.

Seeing it at first hand would surely confirm the way you already think  - not change it?

With more recent wars then even civilians can get caught up in them because of the types of weapons that get used but what if you went back to times where they didn't have them.
Would you feel the same way as someone that could get bombed or shot would feel if the soldiers only had swords, or would you simply hide until the fighting was over and simply take it as an interuption to your day to day life.
How must people have felt when the first weapons were developed that allowed you to kill people at a distance compared to when you simply had to stay as far away from the people that were doing the killing.

I still think wars, if they have to be fought, should be fought by sending a few hundred willing soldiers into a field with swords and horses.

With the commander in chief at the head of them - not sitting behind a desk signing other people's death warrants.

I wonder how many would have the b*lls for up-close, hand to hand fighting when it came down to it? Few, I imagine.
