    Ok, so we have one thread titled "Let's Write A Story Together," and another that I always had fun with on firelink : three-word story.
    Let's try this one: If you could travel time to change history, where would you go? April, 1912 to warn the Captain of the Titanic about the iceberg that would sink the "unsinkable" ship? April, 1865 to stop John Wilkes Booth? November, 1963 to prevent the Kennedy assassination? December 1941 to stop the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor?
    What would you do? How would the world have changed? Be careful you don't kill your grandfather and marry your grandmother...

      I would go back to World War II and stop Hitler from being in power. Stop the Holocaust.

      I'd flag down Doctor Who and exclaim "Guess what mate? We're twins!"

    I would go back to the days when the Mayans existed and I tell the guy who did the calendar to go well beyond 2012...perhaps 9999

      He would give you a confused look while you talk in your strange moon language.

    I would inform the captain of Titanic about the iceberg & stop it from sinking.

    I'd go back to Adam and warn him about Eve.

      hahaha... That's funny, but Im pretty sure no earthly power would have kept him away. She was the *only woman on earth.

    I would tell ABC executives not to cancel Zero Hour, after 2 or 3 episodes, a few weeks ago.

    I was really getting into that show....

    (I know, I know...there are many more critical things that could have been done (stopping Hitler, Causing the Titanic not to sink, etc), but Zero Hour was the first thing that came to mind wink smile

    I'm a geek so I would use my trip through time to see certain bands/concerts I missed out on, including:

    The Beatles during their pre-fame club days (While there, I would hit Pete Best up for an autograph and suggest that he get a new gig lined up soon)

    Jimi Hendrix @ Woodstock (hell, all of Woodstock, really)

    The Ramones' debut gig at CBGB (1974)

    AC/DC with Bon Scott on vocals

    Original KISS lineup during the LOVE GUN era (their high point, circa 1977)

    The 1983 US Festival

    Metallica during their club days with Dave Mustaine on guitar and Cliff Burton on bass
