I would like to go back 5 years at a time where I used to live. You could then notice all the little changes easily plus you'd also be familiar with the surroundings. Eventually you'd end up thousand odd years back.
I love nostalgia so I think it would be amusing yet fascinating seeing the change in fashion, cars etc., even going into shops!
I would like to go back in time to when I was 17.
But wake up one morning in my body as it was then but have the knowledge and the wisdom that I have now.
To find my second husband when he was young and have the 20 odd years that I wasted with an abusive first husband.
Thats my ultimate wish.
Ahh to dream.
I am assuming that one is allowed to go back and view history without being able to be seen or heard, or interacting with the people in a way that might muck up history and lead to chaos like the grandfather paradox.
I would go back to Dealey Plaza and watch the assassination of JFK. I am already strongly convinced that JFK was killed by Lee Harvey Oswald acting alone, but I would like to be able to have the satisfaction of seeing it and knowing it to be true, rather than relying on historical research and evidence. Obviously one would have the advantage of knowing in advance where to look, and to take binoculars etc to be sure.
If one is allowed to go back in history and interact with it, I would want to have the precaution of creating an alternative parallel universe following on from the situation which has been changed. In that case, I would go back and kill Adolf Hitler as a baby. If he had not made any contribution to history, then the Second World War would probably still have happened in some form, and there would probably still have been an authoritarian or nationalist government in Germany. There is the danger that the history of the middle part of the 20th Century would have been even worse, with more wars in the second half of the century. For that reason, I would want to see what happened, see how history evolved, and have the option of coming back to our own universe rather than the alternative one.
