    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".
    I would definitely want to witness the Big Bang, and the moment life began on the planet.

    1. An extended weekend to observe the crucifixion and resurrection.

    2. An afternoon meal with Shakespeare.

    3. A day at the hot gates.

    I'd tell Rachael Carson what she accomplished, the start of the environmental revolution in America.

    much much more significant to tell Jesus that when he created the individual he created America.

    Perhaps you don't know the story.

    Carson had a girlfriend (maybe like that) with an apple orchard. The orchard had experienced a massive die-off of birds, thus resulting in a silent spring. Carson, an accomplished ecologist, endeavored to investigate. She discovered that DDE, a biodegradent of DDT, resulted in a thinning of eggs. She published her work and the book Silent Spring.

    He work was met by a massive lobby effort by the chemical industry. She was attacked for being a lesbian (dunno if that's even true). She was attacked for being a female scientist. Millions of dollars poured into her public character assassination.

    During the vicious attacks on her, she was suffering from cancer. She died before her work was confirmed and began the Environmental Revolution in America.

    She should know what she did. Jesus knows what he did.

    Do you think Jesus doesn't know some things? You think you're gonna tell Him something?

    obviously don't know about time travel at all or whether people listen when you have time traveled back to them but point is most important moment in human history is when Jesus created America by creating the individual.
