Would you take the time portal or not? and why???
Because I'm an explorer.
I would fill my belly with seeds.
Then when I arrive I take a dump,
spread out the seeds and begin propagation.
If even, only, one strain succeeds I will be ancient world wealthy.
Having plants that no one else does.
Aloe Vera Seeds
Great Burdock Seeds
Pot Marigolds Seeds
Tea Tree Seeds
Rock Elm Seeds
Neem Tree Seeds
Moringa Oleifera Tree Seeds
Pine Cones Seeds
Cedar Tree Seeds
theobroma cacao seeds
I'm rather gifted at landscaping,
gardening, and plant empathy.
After that I would take a local and teach them to tend and keep the garden,
and that they can eat from any of the plants the wish, except for the cacao.
The chocolate beans I would use for trade. Introducing the idea of currency
into the ancient world.
You know what,
now that I think about it,
this may already have happened.
And on second thought no, I would not go back.
Because people are back stabbing #ing #ers
and I wouldn't be able to establish trade for long
enough to teach future generations how to read and write,
before being betrayed.
Unless I became a vengeful murderous #er willing to
slay any and all who stood in my way.
Something I am certain I would not enjoy.
As future generations would not see or recognize the times
I was in, and what I _had_ to do to bring literacy to the world,
and who wants to be remembered as a vengeful murderous #er anyway.
I could just see myself having to stop some #ing #er from sacrificing
their own child atop some abandoned trading post I used to use.
"Abraham, Abraham: Lay not thine hand upon the lad, neither do thou any thing unto him: for now I know that thou fearest God, seeing thou hast not
withheld thy son, thine only son from me."
At least in this day and age,
I can teach someone how to read,
write, and do math, without having
to shed blood, or be accused of
