Alright peeps, you get a one hour chance to go back in time to show 3 people news paper articles from current times to anyone you choose from the past to try to alter the future. What three articles do you take for show and what three persons do you show them to? Only 3 of each...

Interesting question, near a puzzle :paranoid:

You'd have to be very careful with who you visited and when. One wrong move and you'd be dead by horrible means. Think Spanish inquisition.

I'd visit Leonardo da Vinci (mid 1400's) as he might be a believer. "Hi, I've traveled back through time etc." Obliviously news paper articles like today's aircraft, especially helicopters or space flight/satellites, better still the 1969 Moon landing.

I'd visit John F Kennedy in the days before his assassination so as to prevent same. Any political items of today would do. Imagine telling Kennedy Trump is in the Whitehouse or Arnie Schwarzenegger served as the 38th Governor of California from 2003 to 2011.

So as to prevent WW1, I'd travel back and prevent the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand in Sarajevo on 28th June 1914 that triggered a chain of events that resulted in World War 1.

Any of the above would (I think) have a dramatic effect :!:

There's is always Nostradamus or Albert Einstein you might visit. Simply, you would have no idea of what future changes you'd cause. Indeed, your future might not exist to return to if you planned that. I guess you would in this challenge..

Did a little light reading on time paradoxes....

Quote:
The Butterfly Effect is a reference to Chaos Theory where seemingly trivial changes can have huge cascade reactions over long periods of time. Consequently, the Timeline corruption hypothesis states that time paradoxes are an unavoidable consequence of time travel, and even insignificant changes may be enough to alter history completely.


Above reminds me to watch The Butterfly Effect movies I've got on DVD sometime :D

Whiskey, I believe the stoppage of the assignation of JFK would eliminate 100% of every aspect of our current times. I feel current technology was actually set back 20 years because of his death.

And butterfly effect is still awesome.

Be sure to watch the director's ending and not the theatrical ending. The director's ending is so much more grim but fits the movie so much better.

Going back in time and killing Hitler before WW2 also means we wouldn't have Saving Private Ryan, Band of Brothers and Wolfenstein 3D. Hmmm.... tough choice.

kill Hitler, get Goebbels instead

i'd take an article about the popularity of the fidget spinner back to 1900, get someone to mass produce them so they become popular then instead of in our own time

If he had a set, he'd probably be splatted all over the inside of a temple by now.

That's what passes for comedy in his circles.

I’m glad to see nothing has changed here in 21 years.

Sounds like the wet dream of an anti-semite Florida fatass, maybe the FBI should hear about your terrorist tendencies :idea:

What did you expect when you started this thread? You set forth a hypothetical where you can go in the past and change history. Obviously Hitler's going to be mentioned, which invokes Godwin's Law. This thread was destined for a quick, fiery death from the get-go. :up:

Very interesting :!:
I'd never heard of Godwin's law.

That's based on the highly unlikely scenario of gwamps knowing people that even want to talk to him. Everything about him screams unlikable douchebag with zero redeeming qualities. He can't even get a single "like" from relatives that begrudgingly accepted his friend request on Facebook, so he posts his pointless daily status updates here.

For someone who so desperately relies on this forum from having to blow his brains out from loneliness, you'd think he might be able to behave a bit less like a blubbering blockheaded baboon :alert:

I'd visit Einstein and Hawkins in their early active periods and show them their big break-throughs so they can achieve even more.
Also I'd like to show a scientific paper about a nuclear fusion reactor to Wernher von Braun after he moved to the US.
He may have been a person to understand the impact and get people thinking into that direction.
