View Full Version : Back to the Past

January 5th, 2013, 11:59 AM
If you could go back in time and see three different things that happened what would they be?

Verbi Gratia:
1. The Beatles playing a concert.
2. The signing of The Declaration of Independence.
3. The Sphinx in it's prime.

Rules: (because most things like this have them.)
1. You are merely a spectator, therefore you can not interact with anything/one.
2. You may not bring anything with you, there or back.
3. It can be any point in time that has already come and passed. (And no saying "Time is an illusion")

Maybe the biblical times, it'd be fun to see the sea split in two xD If you don't believe in the Bible don't argue with me, don't want to start a flame war.

I agree, that would be pretty cool.

If not, I guess I would like to go back in time and see my history teacher. He fought in Vietnam and it would be cool to see him then.

I'd like to see the first Olympic Games ever. I'd also like to see Marie Curie discover whatever she discovered. Lastly, I'd like to see myself being born.

1) Dinosaurs. Just to see them in the flesh and bone and scale and not recreations on a TV screen. Obviously they were big critters, but looking a T-Rex in the eyes would just be a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

2) First production of Macbeth. It's definitely my favourite Shakespeare play and rightly seen as a classic, but I really wonder what the first audience would have made of it all those centuries ago. Obviously, they would have seen it as just another play, but would it have moved them in the way that it moves so many people today?

3) Studio 54 from 1977 - 1981. Allllll the celebrities and alllllll the cocaine! The birth of disco. So many famous faces drugged up to their eyeballs. It'd be fascinating to be a fly on the wall in such an over-the-top environment!

1) See the dinosaurs.

2) Witness the many Biblical events that have happened. (As mentioned above, please do not start any flame wars here, thanks~)

3) To see what really caused the extinction of the dinosaurs.

I know I'm not that creative, but that is all I can think of now.

KISS's first ever performance in concert.

The Medieval Times - always wanted to see what it was like since I learned about it in 7th grade.

& see my great-grandfather, because I never really got to know him all too well, and he died when I was barely a year old. My dad always told me he was an amazing person. (I want to at least see what he looked like in person, not interact with him or anything. You know, as interacting would pretty much alter the past & stuff lol)

Malcolm X' speech at Oxford.

The Liberation of Paris.

Woodstock festival.

20th century history feels most relevant and most interesting to me. Can't beat a good motivating speech, liberation or festival; maximum feel good moments.
