Its always fascinated us hasnt it?well it has me,but lets just say it was possible would you go forward or back in time and to which year and why? id personally go back to araound 1980 what seemed those long summer days of my childhood playing kick the can in the street, but would love apeek into say fifty years time?

I would go back to before 1978 and invent the spreadsheet ;o)

I would like to have lived and worked in Silicon Valley during the 70s. The commercial and technological opportunites must have been fantastic. Also, not a bad place to live then, as San Jose was little more than a "cow town". San Francisco and the Pacific coast just a few miles drive away. Lake Tahoe and its casinos and winter sports just a couple of hours drive. Oh well!

I'd go back to 1967..what a summer that was, magic sparkled in the air, unbelievable time.

I would stay exactly where I am. Luckily, like most people, I remember good times and forget about the bad, So when I remember 2 or 3 good things that happened I forget about the 20 bad ones that happened that year. I don't want to remember them thanks.

I also believe that I'd probably make the same stupid mistakes again, and if I didn't spot an opportunity them, I doubt if I'd spot it again on a re-visit.

I don't think I'd be any brighter by going back in time but might have the odd question about certain things feeling a bit familiar.

So all in all I think I'd prefer to go forward in time and look forward to all of those new and exciting challenges.

If this ever was (or already is) invented, it would be all hushed up anyway - the powers that be would never let on about it.

And this whole debate of "if it can exist, where are the time travellers?" is absolute bobbins.

Anyway - I could never work out why The Happy Days cartoon series involved time travel. What did that have to do with the normal program?

Good music (Motown), spring-summer-autumn-winter (not like now).Good food and change out of a fiver.Black Maria's put fear in you, and a burly policeman more so.Nearly everyone had a Raleigh push-bike or the wealthy had the Claude Butlers.Triumph, BSA, Norton, Velocette, Enfield,Sumbeam, Arial were the motorbikes of the day.

But then again, I may even consider Dicken's time.What an adventure that could have been!.

It's all about imagination, pc_sausage, without which most of today's inventions would never have been invented.
Or am I taking you too seriously?
