Oh dear.................Peckerwood, of all the things you could do with time travel you would choose to take a load of modern weapons back to the American Revolution just so you could shoot a load of people in the back!?

"it would be kind of fun".........................................!?

I would myself, given the choice, take pain killers and antibiotics back as far as I could. These could have saved countless millions of lives and reduced the suffering of everyone.

Ironically, Peckerwood's foray into the past would most likely do less damage than yours. Still, it's truly a good thing that time machines don't exist and especially good that neither of you has access to one.

I'd take the time machine.
Seems so much more fun. One could answer all those 'What ifs'. I for one would be interested to find out what if the dutch would have never ceded their north american colony to the british and what if Hitler would have died in WWI for example.

The list is practically endless…

For my part, I would like to use a time machine.
Only one time, but it very much.
I could save my son.

Hi MJL21193,
how do you make that out?
Are you thinking on the lines of "anti-biotic resistance"?

Time machines are an impossibility..........period.

I have no idea what the end result would be if either mine or Peckerwoods suggestions were to happen, so it is the "intent" that you need to concentrate on, and not the cause and effect that seems to concern you.

Its quite startling that on this forum one cannot discuss politics or religion and yet one can talk about killing people "in a kind of fun way"..............in the back!?

Wait a minute - isn't DIY audio a religion?

Or is it just that we can't talk about OTHER religions?

I'd go to Vegas, January 1967. Bet on the Jets. Then spend the remaining 72 hours catching the shows (Sinatra, etc.) Then fast forward a few months and let it all ride in a bet on the Final Four. Then forward again to January 1968 to let it all ride on the next Superbowl.
And so on, through the years. By the 80s and 90s I would have bought out all the oil and power and health insurance companies, to make them turn their efforts to clean, renewable energy and universal health care. (I'd pay for it all from my personal fortune....no politics involved here).
