I'm starting this thread as an addition/counter piece to the "If you could ask a time traveler a question" thread.
If you had the ability to travel back to any time within the last century + (the year 1900 - now), what time would you travel to?
What information would you attempt to get to the people of that time?
What sights/events would you try to witness? (if that's why you went back to that time)
How would you convince the people of that time that you were really from the future? (really think about this. Anything you take back with you they
could always say it was just a product of your own creation in their time IE: Hoax)
In order to prevent the inevitable few that will have 4 pages of times they would go back to and events they would change, assume that you would only
be able to make ONE round trip (there and back).
To get it started off:
I would go back to Nov, 22 1963; Dallas, Texas.
Nothing has ever stroked my interest like the Kennedy Assassination. This event alone is single handedly responsible for my fascination with
conspiracy and my search for truth. If I ever had the opportunity to find out the truth about the assassination for myself, I would HAVE to take
Granted, I would still never learn the whole depth of the conspiracy, but knowing for certain (I already know this in my own mind, but seeing that
shooter from the knoll or sewer would be so much better) that Lee Harvey Oswald wasn't the only shooter that day would suffice.
As a side note, If I had the chance to stop the assassination....I'm afraid that I would not no matter how much I would like to. Back to the future
struck a chord with me hahahahah.
EDIT TO CLARIFY: I'm fairly certain that LHO wasn't a shooter at all that day, but you get what I was saying.
