What Would You Do?
So here is the situation. You are given the opportunity to travel back in time, to any point in the last whatever billion years the earth has been around (or 5,000 years for you christians out there) but the caveat is that you only have 30 minutes.  What do you do with this 30 minutes? Do you attempt to change something in your own past? Do you attempt to alter a catastrophic national or international event? Do you ride dinosaurs with Jesus? Or do you just have something random you really want to do?
I ask you to be creative as I will judge you based on your answers

I think I would like to go back to about 10 minutes right before John Wilkes Booth assassinated Abraham Lincoln and beat Booth's *ss. I think Lincoln favored the South coming back into the Union with a little more forgiveness and he truly wanted to see the Nation as a whole heal after the war and all the devastation, the folks left in charge after his death and through the Reconstruction period were not so forgiving. There are lots of other periods of time I would like to go to, be there to prevent the first shot at the Battle of Wounded Knee. It would have been nice to be able to save a lot of innocent Native American women and children from been slaughtered that day. I could go on and on. Well, for about 5000 years...

You can never guess what would I do.
I will make sure my mom and dad never  met.you know what it means?
No Nader in future.
This was just my first thought if I give it a second thought maybe it be creative.

I am so not creative today.  I don't want to go back and change anything.  God is in control  and i like it like that.

30 minutes................well in that 30 minutes I would go back to the year 1993 and uncurve a Marty McSorely stick.


That is all right now................I may be back because I do believe that "uncurving" only took about 1 minute and 45 seconds.

Sooo... If I was on Quantum Leap:Accelerated or Sliders, how would my episode go?

I'd go back to that fateful day in October 1945 and c*ck-block George W. H. Bush.



(you're very welcome)
#5 | 1380 days ago

I would love to go back to the Dinosaurs.. Maybe I could learn about them  and wouldn't look so stupid to the 5 yr olds in my daycare center.. See what they really did, so they would look up at me and say " This lady knows her Dinosaurs "  I would be a Rock Star to them. All I would need is 30 minutes, I would be to scared to stay any longer! 

I wouldn't change the past, It makes us who we are today.... I could say I wouldn't want to meet my EX....Then  I wouldn't have 2 wonderful kids I have today.  Everything I believe happens for a reason...

I like where your head is at.. I'm gonna need you to elaborate though
#7 | 1380 days ago

I'd like to go back to Mexico at prehispanic times or Egypt in its best moment, I'd use those 30 minutes just as an spectator, watching all the wonders and glory of ancient empires
#8 | 1380 days ago

i'd go back to about a month ago. late on a saturday morning, kinda dreary. i ate at a greek restaurant called mediterraneo's which has amazing food. this day i was feeling ballsy though and tried a greek salad meal instead of my regular chicken boob with humus. thinking the wrinkly purple things on top of this salad were wilty grapes, i tossed one in my mouth and chewed it up. it was an olive. i wish i could got back to that morning and just order the boob.
#9 | 1380 days ago

Option 1 -
October 18, 1986. 3 - 3:30 pm... I sneak may way onto the Shea Stadium grounds crew and spend 30 minutes going through the dirt from the cut of the grass to the back of the infield from the first base line to about 20 feet towards second.  Once I have removed every possible pebble or grain of sand above 1/16 of an inch in diameter, I spend the last 10 minutes applying extra water and tamping the ground to make it as firm and true as possible.  On my way out, I leave a note in Bill Buckner's locker in the visiting locker room telling him that if the game gets tight late to play a little closer to the line
#10 | 1380 days ago

I think I have said this a long time ago but, first I would go back to 1918 and dope slap Harry Frazee before he sells "The Babe" to the rival Yanks.

Or, I might go back while I was in school and make the decision to learn architectural drafting and interior design.
I could also have more forward vision and make arrangements to become a personal trainer.

I think I could do this all day.

If you want this kind of specifics , it will have to wait til my brain is less cloudy.... or someone else (janet maybe) can plan it out for me, and I'll just be the executioner. Otherwise...to be continued.

  I can still see that ball in my mind, still feel the disbelief I felt as it went between his legs, still hear myself yelling "Noooooooooo", still feel my stomach dropping, still feel the sweat that broke out all over me.  PERFECT!

I'd spend my half hour double checking everything you did, just in case
#13 | 1380 days ago

I hate eli manning, so right now im gonna go back in time and give tikki barber that wish he wanted......to see the giants not succeed without him. i gotta go back and make sure david tyree doesnt make that catch.

                                                                                              OR

  I really loved sean taylor as the player he was and truly miss the guy. he can stay at redskins park while i try to get rid of the home invaders. i dont care if i die or live i just dont want sean to die.
#14 | 1380 days ago

Too difficult a task to figure out what I could change, unless we were somehow immune to paradox.  (I go back with a purpose to change something, then my timeline is altered so that is no longer the reason i would go back for, therefore I don't go back,...Aaargh!)

I would much rather go back as JAFO  (Just Another F@#$ing Observer) to see where something valuable may have been buried and forgotten, so I could return (without changing anything) so I could "discover" it in my time, becoming rich and famous.

#20 | 1380 days ago

I'd just want to witness some historical event first hand without altering anything. The repercussions are too great to pull a stunt like that. I just want to be another face in the crowd in history. 30 minutes: witness asteroid hit that changed dino history, 1936 olympics, etc.

February 3rd, 2006 - I'd go back to the Bears hotel in Miami and pull a Tonya Harding on Rex Grossman's knee.  He wouldn't be able to play the following day meaning Brian Griese would get the start in Superbowl XLI.  Lovie realizes that the running game is our bread and butter and we play a conservative game, thus winning the Super Bowl. 

Da Bears!

While you're at it, go after Cedric Benson too. For some reason they sat Thomas Jones the entire 2nd half and went with Benson who went nowhere.

January 28, 1996 at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, Arizona. I would put Neil O'Donnell on the Dallas sidelines where he belonged.

Well, I am good at hatching a plan.  
OK, so let's see here.  October 1945.  Here's MY plan.  Wearing Lady GaGa Halloween costumes (to prove we're from the future), we track down the Bush family on their ranch in Texas.  We shall tell them we are from the future, and will be armed with en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1945.  This will tell us important events that will happen by the day, and we will predict them to again prove we are, indeed, from the future.  Hook, line, sinker ... we're in.
After that, we lie our asses off and tell them that the potential fruit of their loins will be the next Hitler.  Wait, they're the Bush family ... worse, he'll be the next Al Gore.  Wait, they won't know who he is.  
OK, we'll say that he'll end up as an alcoholic, cocaine-snorting, C-student who will run several large corporations into the ground, try his hand at managing a pro sports team and even fail miserably at that, only to lie about his military service, become president, amass a record-setting amount of debt for this country while pulling us into a horrific war against the wrong person.  
Hmm, yeah, that DOES sound a little unbelievable.  We'll just say he ends up in jail for flashing old ladies at the local supermarket after pandering away the family fortune on vodka and baseball cards.  

PS - I wouldn't change anything.

Those aren't actually bad numbers except for the interceptions that were returned for major yardage. He threw a pick to Larry Brown when there wasn't a receiver within 10 yards of him.

Sorry to say, but I still dont think Griese could've handled that game, even if he's a step up from Grossman.

Careful what you do to John Wilkes Booth. He's a direct ancestor of mine, I might never be born if you kill him, which might be an incentive to some.

Now you still need to work on fixing this animosity we have recently.  Granted, I'm kinda PMSing, but that just started, so it's hardly an excuse.  Figure it out.  Thank you in advance.

That's why I said Lovie would have realized that running the ball and using a conservative game plan would of been his best option. A nasty defense, special teams, and the running game(in that order) is what got us to Miami. As a Arizona fan, you can attest to that first hand. Lovie deviated from his successful formula and allowed Rex to sling it around too much.

It also didn't help that it was pouring down rain and Rex has small hands. Bad combination for an erratic QB.
