    Imagine you could go to the past anywhere, and time, you wanted. You’d be completely safe for this tour, seem normal to people, have all the money you need, stay as long as you'd like and magically you’d understand whatever languages you encountered. Where would you like to go see? Personally, I would like to see ancient Rome during its peak, or maybe China.

    I wanna go back to the Age of Fairytales so I can find out a) whether I’m really the Master of Masters and b) what baby Xiggy looks like. ( ^ω^ )

    What if I go back to a time where there was no "people"? Like say, would the dinosaurs just ignore me? Would I somehow magically understand all their roars and stuff? Would be cool.

    Assuming my visit doesn't alter the present? I've lost a lot of good friends and family members so I would go back to when they were all alive and just enjoy their company one last time.

    I would tour the bathrooms of famous dictators and fascists pretty much anyone who had a totalitarian regime. I dont know why but I always think those guys must have had magnificent bathrooms.

    First civilization to be reach something similar to the internet age in the galaxy. I'm curious if their web novels were better.

    Should time travel become a practical thing before I die, I would travel back so that the FNC was never formed. Also, 20CF bought Marvel and Lucasfilm each at least 15.5 years ago but the parent company of 20CF was at least $10-$15 bil. smaller than what it was 15.5 years ago. Heck, Disney would never even have "Star Tours" nor would they get 20CF.

    However, to be more specific to this thread, it would at Little Ferry, NJ on 7/9/1937. Why? In the early afternoon at around 2PM, a film storage vault for 20CF got on fire. Just how bad was the blast? Over 40,000 film reels were destroyed and over 75% of Fox's pre-1930 film catalog was lost. The amount of history and lost from that is truly astounding: .

    As long as I can come back ... Can't live without modern sanitation and wifi.
    Go back to 2007 and talk my younger self into buying bitcoin & give him unclaimed lottery numbers.

    Oh and tour my old house.
