I'd be tempted, because there'd be so many things I'd want to see, but I wouldn't purely due to the scary thought of altering history and also there's the whole paradox thing- what happens if I accidentally kill myself or a family member?
No - because if I could back and had to stay there I would not want to do that. If there were a way to go back in my own past but that involved my leaving any number of points along the way.. that would be too hard to do all at once. As far as going back in time - as in "history" - I'd never want to do that. As imperfect as things may be now.. none of the "good old days" was all that good - not even as recently as - say - the 1960's and 1970's.
Time travel has always been a part of science fiction. But sometimes fiction predicts the proof. Traveling back in time may cause one seemingly unimportant event to change, which could prevent your parents from meeting, thus you were never born and suddenly you are gone because you never were.
History has recorded the past. The future is unfolding before us. Our immediate concerns are today. We can see what happens tomorrow and we know what happened yesterday, so it is best to stay where we are.
