Got the time to travel?

Where would you go if you could go back in time?

The major drawback it appears is that it is a one way trip. If you can only go back there's no returning to the future where you began the trip.

Me, I'd go back to the day before the lottery was drawn and buy a winning ticket

The theory that the lack of time travellers wandering amongst us taking photos and killing their grandfathers proved that time travel can't be done was disputed by one scientist who suggested that you could not travel back further than the date of the first operation of the first time machine.

But given that I can get back to Lady EM, that no-one is going to cease my existence by snuffing Grandpa, and I won't be catching bubonic plague or be eaten by a Velociraptor ... then I think I'll go and find out who Jack the Ripper really was.

And follow Lord Lucan.

And Shergar.

Back to 1981 to warn all the "ladies" about a chap called Howard & if they stuck with me, I'd see they were looked after!

You people going back to win lotteries and invest in blue chip stocks are assuming you will take your knowledge with you.

I guess I would have liked to see the wall come down from up close. Must have been one hell of a party...

And then I'd run away. Quite quickly.

1995 but only to stick my last NATS pay cheque on Royal Athlete at 40-1.
I could buy a nice wee boat with that.

Fraid we are all stuck in our own lump of time chaps.

The Moving Finger writes; and, having writ,
Moves on: nor all your Piety nor Wit
Shall lure it back to cancel half a Line,
Nor all your Tears wash out a Word of it

Ah but we can all go back in time, even if it is only in our memories.
And I can dream of what my 8k at 40-1 would have bought me.
