Poll: If you could go back in time to change one event in history OR something in your life, what would it be? (32 votes)

I'd alter an event in my own life or someone close to me that has effected my life in some form or way (my past to alter my future) 34%
I'd change history by preventing someone/people from being killed or kill someone who made the world a worse place(change someone's elses fate) 25%
I wouldn't change ANYTHING my life or otherwise because I wouldn't want to change the timestream or potentially make things worse 28%
I'm honestly not sure which I'd choose between changing my own fate or someone else's/the world's but I would definitely choose one 13%

So if any of you could change something in our history, could be ANYTHING, any event, anyone for good or bad. Or make a change in your own lifes timeline by perhaps going back and warning yourself about a future event that hasn't happened yet or maybe have a second shot at something, maybe that girl you've always wanted or guy, remove that "problem" out of the equation that you failed to do the first time in history.

Could be anything you want, but you can ONLY do it once and change ONE thing(of course depending what it is can potentially change lots of things)

Think of it as a One time Quantum Leap in a way or Back to the Future.

It can even be you preventing a comic writer from writing something you may not want or making sure another writer got the job. The possibilities are endless. Discuss and have fun!

I'm not sure what I'd do honestly, I'd more then likely do something to change my life for the better though.

Go back in time and give myself the winning lottery numbers. ;)

My own life. It would have less drastic effects on altering the present. Maybe tell a girl I liked her earlier. Maybe stop a habit before it got bad. It would definitely be something that benefited me, though.

@cezar_thescribe:

Nice.

I'd probably do what Marty did lol, buy a sports book anthology up to date from 1990-2013 and give the book to my younger self, then I'd always have money coming in! Baseball, Football, Basketball, Hockey etc Then with all that money, I'd literally get my connections to my dream jobs and make even more money! Probably what I'd so, instead of going after that one girl I could have had. I will be able to have almost anyone with money comes power ;)

Nah. I believe things happen because they were meant to happen.

Plus i have seen and read way too many time traveling movies and books, to know that you dont mess with the time space continuum.

#20 Posted by Deadite (24781 posts) - - Show Bio

Part of me believe there must be some life changing scientific breakthrough that was prevented because the 'bad guys' won. They must've won sometimes. And when I say 'bad guys', I'm not directing it to anyone in particular.

If we could've had fusion technology and someone prevented it from happening, I'd choose to alter that outcome. If we could've had a cure-all medicine that made pharmaceutical companies obsolete because people can just 'grow' it in their house, I'd choose to alter that outcome as well.

Otherwise, unless it's something in that equation, I'm choosing to alter my life.

After reading Flashpoint, I'm a little scared to change the past lol. Our past mistakes make us stronger and help us learn.

Has anyone seen "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind?" The couple erased memories of each other to forget but at the end of the movie, they are bound to make the same mistakes and experience the same pain again.
