Stop Davros from creating the Daleks
First, travel one week into the future and get the winning lottery numbers... it's faster and easier than waiting for some stock investment to pay off.
Second, travel ten years into the future and do some shopping for electronics and see what changes around the metro area.
Third, travel 25-30 years into the past and just go see what things looked like around the time and before I was born.
I wouldn't, time travel isn't the greatest idea in the world...
I'd prefer traveling in alternate time lines rather then going back in time in my own time line as I might mess up my own time line but if I mess up an alternate then it doesn't really effect me.
Before or after the events of "Genesis of the Daleks"?
You make me feel old. I was 17 years old 30 years ago, and had graduated from high school. The world wasn't so different, except that:
- The 'Net wasn't such an integral part of daily life.
- People still used cheques.
- You could still find pay phones because the phone company didn't think everybody had a cell phone (therefore removing their pay phones and causing a GREAT DEAL of inconvenience for those of us who don't own a cell phone! ).
- The government hadn't deregulated everything (thereby screwing up entire industries and allowing people to have to choose between paying the utilities and buying food for the month).
- I still had my first cat.
- My mother and I weren't speaking (oh, wait - we're not speaking now, either).
- People usually wore a lot more clothes on TV.
- Three's Company, Dallas, and The Love Boat were considered the "racy" TV shows.
- I would never have thought I'd ever be communicating with people from all over the world, in just the time it takes to type a few sentences and hit "submit."
Prevent Lavos from destroying the world in the year 1999.
To do that we must go to the future, the year 2300 AD!
I honestly don't see how you can go back and not create a paradox... just going back in time and observing events is a paradox in itself.
I'd collect videos from interesting moments:
Age of Dinosaurs
Building of the Great Pyramid
"Out of Africa" events
Life of Buddha
Life in Sumer
First performance of "Romeo & Juliette"
The Empires of Meso America at their peaks
If I could turn back time, if I could find a way, I'd take back those words that hurt you and then you'd stay. If I could reach the stars, I'd give them all to you. And then you'd love me, love me, love me like you used to do.
I'm sorry, was that too personal?
If I had two time machines, I'd use the other one to kill Sarah Connor.
You know... you can't really cause a paradox. If you go back and do what you want to have had done, it's already have happened, even if you did the doing without knowing that you'd do the doing before you tried. Capiche?
In all seriousness, I'd probably go back to the 60s or 70s so I can see all my favorite bands in concert.
This would definitely be one of my top priorities. I'd also go back 1000-1400 years ago to determine medieval secrets to engineering advanced AI and frogmen. I may kill some Hitler while I'm at it, then it's off to however far I can go into the future while still understanding the language to retire, but on vacation I'd
as well as other monumental performances.
I'd go forward to December 22nd 2012 and see if we were all still alive
Unless all of time already exists at once. If that's true, you aren't changing anything, you were always there.
That's a paradox in it's self.
Hitler's guards know time travelers are coming and are on watch for it.
Better yet shoot him in the groin.
I'd watch the battle of Thermopylae, to see if it's anything like the movie.
I'd want to watch the slow erosion of the St. Francois Mountains over the billions of years of their existence.
