    Different kind of \"Time Travel\" question.

    Okay, if you could take a one way trip into either the past or the future, witch would you choose ??? I personally would go 1,000 years into the future. I'd love to see all the advancements in everything.

    I'd take my sorry ass back to 1974, buy me a factory fresh K5, and then take it back to now, no rust /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    (would have to get hardened valve seats for today's unleaded, I think...)

    I'd go back 1950 years. I would probably get killed pretty quick since I'd be dressed awfully funny for the culture, though...

    I can't beleive you guys would travel so lightly. You can never get more of them once you use them all up back then!

    Re: Different kind of \"Time Travel\" question.

    Ya see, here's my thinking............

    Usually, when a small band of Indians would start getting their butts whupped, they'd be heading the other way. That's gonna take what, a whole 30 rounds or so depending on the size of the band. Plus with a total of 30K rounds, that's a lot of weight to be carrying. I'd simply cache it in places, no problem.

    I'd stake out the land in New Mexico and have me a big old ranch.

    Could you just take a reloading setup? I imagine the powder was worse back then, non smokeless and such, but they had lead

    I'd just set the Way back machine's dial back to 1988 when Microsoft went public and IPOd for .88 cents a share. Buy 50 thousand shares, kick back and enjoy the ride.

    I would go back to the day before 9/11 and try to get a warning out about what was about to happen... I would also quit smoking on that day.

    Re: Different kind of \"Time Travel\" question.

    oooooooo i got one to hurt your head. What if you went so far back in time, that nothing existed yet. What would happen? would you cease to be? or could you sit and watch as the galaxy was created? Or if you went so far forward in time, that you ended up somewhere that nothing existed? could you return?
