My bad dude. I didnt really mean "who cares". I was really just trying to get the thread back on topic because it was a really cool topic. I did breeze through a couple of your and other's posts about JFK and it did make me think about my views about him, which is why I suggested a seperate thread for it. And yes I know I was being hypocritical by poking my little thing into the whole SB XL thing but like I said. My bad.

Never apologize....its a sign of weakness. O:-)

Similar to Metroid's suggestion, I would go back in time and do things that would benefit myself.

I would take an almanac back to the 50's, and bet on every major sport that I could. I would do so in moderation, of course, and purposely lose the occasional bet, just so no one would get suspicious of my constant success.

I would also take several successful song compositions from 1970-2005, and submit them to record companies under my name. This would give me fame as a successful song writer, and it would make me a lot of money as well.

In addition, I would claim to be a prophet who could predict the future. I would inform the media/government of certain major upcoming events, and would become famous by doing so.

So, basically, I would resort to a greedy, fame craving lunatic. However, I would take the lives of others into consideration as well. I wouldn't prevent things such as Pearl Harbor, due to the possibility of altering history in a major way. However, I would use my fame and wealth to open up a chain of hospitals, help poverty-stricken families, and give orphan children a shot at a decent future.

Depending on what time travel theory you subscribe to, even a minor little change such as giving a hungry family food could turn out to change history in a more major way than by preventing Pearl Harbor. Some stuff says that even the very act of going back in time, you'd have caused some major alterations in the timeline already.


But I do agree with you in a way. I'd make myself into a god if I went back in time. And likely killed after a few years too, lol, after the jaded people lead some sort of revolt against me.

As long as it's not the Cleveland Browns, I think you'll be okay.

That is a marvelous idea.

Perhaps I could buy the Detroit Lions, and prevent Matt Millen from ever taking over the President/CEO position. That would be one of the greatest acts of kindness that I could possibly perform.
