    If you had a one shot chance to go back in time to someplace on Earth, what epoch or era would you select?

    I'd take a chance on living with the dinos. Might need to bring a cache of weapons along but I think it would be fun.


    All that belongs to human understanding, in this deep ignorance and obscurity, is to be skeptical, or at least cautious; and not to admit of any hypothesis, whatsoever; much less, of any which is supported by no appearance of probability...Hume

    can't i go forward in time ? say about 100 years, just to see whether the doomsday scenario for global warming is true, whether the islamic threat will be yesterday's cold war, whether we managed to avoid using nuclear weapons, whether we ever made into space (or failing that, some of the moons/planets), ...

    Your going to have to help me out here Marnix, i've looked in the dictionary and online but i can't find out what this word means "paedocidal" and it's buging the hell out of me

    I know that 'paedo' is something to do with 'child'.

    ------------------

    I think we will need another clue William.

    ----Edit----

    It's ok i got it. Suicide.
    Latin, Sui = oneself
    cide = killing

    paedocidal = child killer, child killing

    I would travel to next week, turn on a TV, and see what that week's lottery numbers were. Then, I'd immediately return to my own time.


    Alternatively ............ I might travel to last week, and buy a ticket with this week's lottery numbers on it, and bring it with me when I returned.
