    Default If you had one time machine travel...

    If you were given one trip back in time what one thing would you change in your life?

    Default Re: If you had one time machine travel...

    I always thought it was an interesting question because there's always the "If I had known...". There's one thing that quickly comes to mind for me. Sometime in 2000 I bought a couple shares of Apple for $85/share. I would go back to that day and beg, sell and borrow to get as much money together so I could buy as many shares as possible. This was one of my if I only knew moments.

    Seriously. LOL! I really have nothing I would want to go back and change...and at the risk of actually changing a substantial event in history, I would not want to go back and experience something major (like the birth of Christ or 9/11 or anything like that) because I know, by nature, I would not be able to simply be a quiet observer.

    So at the risk of being called selfish and narrow minded, I'd go back to the last day Mega Millions had no winners (Tuesday night, right?), and I would play it with the winning numbers and allow life to carry on with riches to hopefully help my family and friends as much as possible (and obviously enjoy it myself, lol). That way, nothing in the past is changed, and the future hasn't happened yet so screw it, who cares right?

    The idea of time traveling into the past has numerous conceptual difficulties.

    I would go back to 1980 something!

    I would definitely go back to before my mom got sick; prevent her from dying.

    I think this way too. I think of all the big tragedies but then I think about whether my one change would then alter things in a worst way. The whole concept of time is such an interesting one. I guess that's why it's a staple of books and movies.

    Nothing substantial, I think as I believe everything happens for a reason. However, I might say or do things differently, knowing what I now know in hindsight.

    This is easy. Well not really. I could go back in time to 1995 and dump everything in Apple stock. Or I could go back in time to 1992 and NOT sell my Colt Python .357.
