What would you do with a time machine?

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by SpectorBass308, Jul 17, 2007.


  1. I would go back in time and convince Victor Wooten to play drums. Not sure why but I think it would be funny. heck he would proibly be a drum legend. Or maybe I might just win the lotto like 3 times in a row, I dono.
     
  2. Go back to this past Friday so I could have booked my damn Plane Tickets and not have forgotten.

    Final Countdown was a great time travel movie.

    I think I would rather go forward in time than backward. Oh, except to invest a few dollars in Microsoft. That would be worth one trip back. ;)

    I would do what all super villians do when they create something that could legally make them powerful, wealthy, and famous: rob a bank!

    Easy. I'd rent it out to other people and make big bucks off of it. Of course, they could come back and take their money, I think...

    My eight grade US History teacher once raised this issue in class. He said he would go back to the middle ages, like Medieval times, and bring bar-ba-que sauce with him. Why? So he can sell it to the king, who would be ALL OVER IT. My teacher then would be quite wealthy.

    Honestly, I haven't thought of a better way of getting rich that didn't involve Microsoft stock.

    Go buy a newspaper from one year in the future and come back. The stock prices would be very useful.
     
  9. +1 You read my mind. Stock prices and lotto numbers.

    Or he'd just have you boiled alive and take the sauce from you.
     
  11. I'd kill Charles Dickens.

    Let's face it :meh: , there never will be such thing as a "Time Machine" that allows travel into the distant past :scowl: .

    How can I be so sure? :meh:

    Well, if there was, we'd know about it by now, as people would have come back and told us :smug: . Wouldn't they ...?

    They know not to interfere with the past, because that would lead to serious trouble in the future (their present time). I see you have a Simpson's quote in your signature, haven't you seen the "Treehouse of Horrors" episode in which Homer goes back in time with the toaster...;)

    You can't do anything in the past that you haven't already done in the past. Basic logic of time travel.

    Go back and show the younger me what I look like now, tell him that unless he starts excersising when he gets to 25 he too will start to turn into a fat git.
     
  17. I forget who said it originally, but time isn't a constant, we just apply "rules" to it to make it seem that way, or man would drive itself mad. Kinda why everyone's perception of time is so different when recalling things, or what have you...

    But yeah, I don't think it's possible anyway, you could never go back, and I seriously doubt forward, if maybe only for minute spans (nanoseconds or whatever)

    But hypothetically, I would have stopped a certain W from being conceived. :smug:

    Ooops, took it too far.

    :smug: Have I seen it ??????????????? :D

    That's probably my very favourite episode (Top 3, at least ;) )!

    Especially, the "Remember what your father told you the night before your wedding"? bit. :p

    You gotta love The Simpsons! Can't wait to see the new movie, btw. ;)

    I'd go back to see Jamerson, Jaco, Wetton era Crimson, Genesis with Gabriel and many other bands in concert.

    Some stock in Microsoft would be good too.
