I'd go back to 1979 just to bitch-slap Jimmy Carter.

The rest would just be a perk.

I'd go back to ancient times to go see to the Colossus at Rhodes and the Coliseum in their glory. Then bounce forward to Elizabethan England to try and recreate Pride and Prejudice to find a Mr. Darcy.

one thing I would do is go back to the 60's or early 70's (not sure when the exact date would be but if I was able to do this I would research it first).

I have no real interest in those time periods but I am a big fan of Doctor Who and a lot of the early episodes were lost around this time. I would go back and make copies of all the lost episodes and then bring them back to the present and tell people I "found" them.

I would become a big hero in the geek world :)

I'd go back in time so that I could prevent all the bad things that I did in my life

I would go back during the 60s-80s. Also the Women's Rights Movement, the beginning part of it. I would also like to go to Ancient China and Ancient Japan, and both World Wars.

I would go back to 90's and re live all the awesomeness of the 90's, also the 1980's would be a very fun time to live in as well as the 50's.

I'd go back to 1995 and tell Pioneer that it is their duty to dub the anime series Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon before Dic gets a hold of it and I'd tell them under no circumstances hire a company called Optimum productions or a writer named Lisa Lumby. I'd also relive my childhood. And change all the mistakes I made since I was like ten or something. Also I think I would try and live in the fourties or fifties.

I would have probably gone back in time to kill Lumby before she got her hands on a Sailor Moon episode. :twisted:

Aw, that's going too far...

Well, as for me, first thing I do is to go back to my childhood, and then study all the thing I did back then and learn from them, as well as relieve on what happened during my life. After that, I go back to the 1990's and look around and the see what I missed back then, like all of the TV shows/premieres/anything I missed or didn't care about back then.

Then, I would go back to the 1940's and watch cartoons when they first premiered. Also, can't hurt to look around my grandparent's generation and see the effects of WWII...

Then, after going through of the decades, from '00 to '99, I'll go to the future and see if I/the world became stupider or not.

That is, if the time space continuum doesn't screw up and that I didn't died from the Earth being moved after that deviart picture I saw once ... :wink:

I would go back to the 30s-50s. That's the Golden Age of Hollywood and musicals right there.
The Music of the Night and Tuxedo Mirage are what keep me from going completely INSANE! (right...)

Era-wise, the 50's looked the most interesting to me... Time of innocence and all that. Sometimes you just gotta see things to believe them.

Personally-wise, I'd like to go back maybe, 6 or 7 years when I was 10 or so and build better foundations with my family and really appreciate what that means. You don't miss something until it's gone kind of thing. I also think it would be fun to be a kid again for a sec and just chill.
