    So ignorant.

    DDT was never banned in the prevention of malaria. It was banned in developed world agriculture.

    The problem is not exposure to DDT and indoor use does not result in the biodegradant DDE. There's no danger in getting DDT on oneself. The problem is widespread large scale use in agriculture. When DDT gets into the soil it is broken down into DDE, which is a teratogen and mutagen.


    You have no idea what you're talking about. It's moronic anti environmentalism crap fed to morons for decades and there's really no excuse for buying that crap today. You've had decades to learn about this, but you're content to play orc.

    I think that's misogyny more than anti intellectual or anti environmentalism.



    Side note: Trump? I bet "no lies". How funny.

    To think misogynist is misogynist.

    When would go?

    Back to a year before the asteroid took out the Dinosaurs, grab some eggs for your own Jurassic Park and one hell of a firework video?

    Maybe View Krakatoa from a safe distance?

    Prove (or disprove) the existence of Jesus?

    Interview the founding fathers and find out what they really meant by the 2nd Amendment?

    When and where would you love to see?

    Me, the dinosaurs, Jesus and I'm torn between the entirety of 1776 and the battle of the Alamo.

    How would you do this? Who cares, maybe you do a favor for the Doctor and he, sorry she gives you three free trips to the past. Maybe you just figure out a way with a microwave and some homemade plutonium, the point is, forget the how so much and just focus on the "If you could".


    (1)Experiencing the American revolution and meeting George Washington.

    (2) trying to stop the fools who voted themselves their own Fed income tax

    (3) Meeting Jesus

    Too many events in my mind for me to make a list but having studied a bit of history and a couple languages, there is one aspect of time travel that hasn't been mentioned in any of the responses I have read - LANGUAGE. For those who wish to visit Roman Judaea at the time of Jesus, how would you know the crucifixion you watched was that of the Jesus person if you couldn't understand the speech of the people in the crowd. The people of that time and that place spoke Hebrew, Aramaic, Greek and Latin, depending upon social status and cultural origin. Then there is the ever so small matter that we don't know how the words in any of those languages were pronounced. Yes, the academic types can read the languages but pronunciation is a whole different matter.

    Never mind ancient Egyptian or Sumerian or archaic Greek and Latin - the English that we speak today would not be understood in 15th century England. Trying to read Chaucer's Canterbury Tales in a class, we quickly found that many of the words are no longer part of our language. Then there are accents - many Americans today would have a difficult time understanding the speech of a farmer from Yorkshire in the UK.
    “And I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.”
    ~ James Madison, letter to Edward Livingston, July 10, 1822

    Obviously you’d need a babelfish or something similar. And something to stop you dying from microbes if you ate or drank anything.

    1. Sermon on the Mount

    2. Premiere of Hamlet

    3. Some kind of excessive feast like in decadent Rome or late gluttony period of Henry VIII
    "Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and unto God the things that are God's.”
    Matthew 22:21
