If you have a time-machine...

"Spin off" of the 3wishes-thread (excuse me for the plagiarism, ZeroSofInfinity )

If you have a time-machine what would you do?

I'd come back to 19th century and discover who was Jack the Ripper!

(1) I would have delayed the opening of "Smash-Up" to 1948. I could have taken Wyman's deaf/mute/rape victim.

(2) 1953 and 1954 were far and away the worse years for Best Actress. I would have delayed "With a Song in My Heart" from a 1952 release to a 1953 release and beaten Audrey Hepburn, and hurried up the production of "I'll Cry Tomorrow" for a '54 release instead of a '55 one, and beaten Grace Kelly. With (1) and (2), I'd have had 4 Oscars!!!

(3) Around 1951 or so, before my marriage totally went South to Jess, I would have drugged him and snapped him in bed in a compromising position with a couple of sailors. That divorce and custody battle would have gone so much smoother with a picture like that in my possession.

Live and learn!

1. I'd go back and give myself the powerball numbers for a big drawing
2. go back in time after I won the lottery and invest it in stocks that were about to take off.
3. save for later in case I develop some kind of health problems that might be prevented with earlier detection

If I could sell it for a lot of money, that would be awesome.

-I would want to go back to March of this year so I can change some things. Or even go back to Prom/cottage and appreciate it more. Spend more time with my friends before we all go off to university.

-go back to when I was a kid so I can be more serious about tennis

I'd go back to the eve of the USO78 final....and I'd spike Chrissie's drink with hallucinating drugs.

Again.

I'd probably go back to the time of either Alexander the Great, Ceaser or Augustus and see how life was then. To see those men in action(Not in a sexual way, that would be a bonus of course), see the Classical world. -Nods.-

By the way, a time machine could be invented. If I had the chance to go back in time, i would borrow some modern weapons today, go back 5'000 years in the past and use these weapons and my charisma to terrorize the populace. They will treat me like a living God, sacrifice human flesh in honor of me and ALL will bow down to me...

eh maybe not. I guess I'll just stick to using winning Lotto numbers.

i would go back to 2001 and tell my friends who died not to get on that bus.

i'd go back to march this year and tell ray not to get on the motorcycle.

i'd go back to a coupla days ago and told amal not to go to work that day.

i'd go back to 19th aug 2002 and buy the sequined tube instead of the goddamn pink knee length skirt.

i would have taken economics instead of chemistry for my IB's.

My friend Lina McLaidlaw just came over and told me that she would go back in time and trust Johnnie from the beginning, unless Hitch stuck with the original ending, in which case she'd dump Johnnie on the first date.
