    If you could pick a time period to visit--any time, past or future--what would you choose?

    Where would you go?

    Why that particular time and place?

    What would you do, or attempt to do, there?

    For me, although there are many periods that I find fascinating, most have some shortcoming, like no indoor plumbing! So there go the 1800s and the wild west. :)

    I think I'd pick Hollywood in its 1920s glory. The movie stars, the studios, the ornate silent movie theatres with live music, the CARS--huge, expensive cars owned by movie stars... It'd be awesome. :D

    I'd go to the future, to the year 2525, to see if man is still alive, if woman really could survive.

    I'd probably spin time back to 1975, and try to build better family relationships.

    That's extremely coincidental...

    How distant in the past would you want to go?

    I'd love to see dinosaurs and woolly mammoths, but I think I'd poop myself out of fear! :eek:

    Yeah, the whole thing of changing history--and that you can't--makes it tough. That's what I had in mind with "or attempt to do." But for the sake of this discussion, why don't we throw the rules/restrictions out the window?

    I'd love to be in Dallas on November 22, 1963, and interfere with Lee Harvey Oswald's morning commute. Or outside the Dakota on my birthday in 1980, and distract the nutjob (I try to avoid using his name--less publicity) who killed my idol, John Lennon.
    Same here. Tomorrow is the 6th anniversary of my mom's death, which also fell on Monday...

    Good choices. I was alive during Woodstock, but too young to travel 3,000 miles away on my own. So yeah, I'd like that, too.

    Watch Houdini doing some of his death- and logic-defying tricks.

    Attempt to have a conversation with Albert Einstein (and not make a blithering idiot out of myself).

    Be at UCLA that day in 1969 when one computer sent the characters "lo" to a remote computer (the official birth of the Internet).

    Prevent the Armenian genocide, and the Holocaust.

    So much more...

    Seeing that the Vulcan Science Council has determined time travel to be impossible, then this is simply an exercise in speculation. ;)

    I'd travel back to 1895, Vienna and tell Freud that I really do love my mother and hate my father.

    Since I enjoy reading US history, particularly from colonization through reconstruction, I guess I'd like to be a fly on the wall for some pivotal events in our country. Perhaps the battles of Lexington and Concord, or Breeds Hill.

    You'd better check with Braxton, first. It might be a temporal infraction. :p

    My mom died six years ago today, so I've been doing a lot of reflection and thinking about her. I'd like to meet her at about 4-5 years old, before her brother was born, and get to know the innocent little girl she was back then.

    I'd learn what it's like being a first-generation American, growing up with Armenian parents who'd made the voyage from Constantinople to Ellis Island, in search of the American dream.
