Default The way I see it...

Time travel will either never be possible, or if it ever is figured out, the time which we are living in sucks so bad that noone would ever want to travel back to it.














I'll stick with never be possible 'cause who wouldn't want this *points at self*.

I'd go back to the 1880's and convince Tesler to rethink his patents and royalty agreements with Westinghouse.

I'd show him how many millions of dollars he'll make and that all I'd need is a 51% interest to manage the business side for him.

I'd concvice him that with the financial side in my hands, he'd be free to do the thing he loves the most; spending all his time researching and inventing in a state of the art laboratory and never have to worry about money again.

Northshore Oahu late 1950's when there was nobody paddling out at pipeline. I'd have it all to myself. I believe this fantastic dream is shared by no fewer than ten million other people who want to surf pipeline with no crowd out......... Right now it is completely ridiculous.

I'd go back so I can watch the hack electricians and DIYers do the hack work that I come across all the time, so I can see the insanity and lack of IQ that was behind their work.

I'd like to go back to Junior year in High School, make sure I had condoms for my GF then and make sure I stayed Navy JROTC and became a diver and wouldn't get married until I was retired and past 40. Oh and maybe give myself the multi state lottery numbers for a good jackpot at my birthday for age 40.
