FQ Topic: Historical

| | Comments (0)

Seems somehow appropriate that the topic be Historical, since the topic is now historical, to the tune of two weeks...! (has it been that long, yikes!)

FQ1: If you were able to visit any time period in the past, when would it be? What is it about this particular point in history that appeals to you?
It might be cool to visit Biblical times. I also always thought it'd be cool to travel the world before tourism really took off and cluttered everything up. Seeing Europe before the wars and acid rain would have been great.

FQ2: If you could meet any person from throughout history, who would that be? What makes them so special to you?
Jesus. He's my saviour.

FQ3: If you could reach through time and grab a piece of historical memorabilia, what artifact would you take and what would you do with it?
Gosh I dunno. Never thought about that one.

FQ QUANTUM LEAP: You have been given a one-time-only opportunity to travel back in time and interfere with history! Would you do it? Where would you go and what would you try to change?
I used to think about going back in time in my own life, like going back to primary school, and just laughing at Kerry Williams who was such a bitch to me, but then I thought what would I do with all my spare time without my computer and the internet. Sometimes I thought about going back to earlier points at school or uni or even work, but then I'd be wondering what I'd have to do in the same order to get to where I am now. Like I'd want to work where I am now, but to get there I'd need the history I had. But then I'd be frustrated having to do the desktop support which was necessary to be where I am now. I'd certainly avoid working at OzEmail, but then without that experience I may not have gotten to work at CIA. There's just too many dependencies to get right.. :) hrm don't think this is making much sense :) Going to back to being a student at uni would be a disaster though - especially if I was dropped mid session, I'd fail! lol

I also used to wonder if I could go back and stop certain disasters. The Challenger disaster was one I thought about years ago. But noone would believe a girl from Australia predicting something on the other side of the world. Until it happened of course. Even with recent things, I'd be hard pressed to convince anyone, given that I don't pay too much attention to news, and wouldn't be able to tell when certain things actually happened. hrm I'm still rambling.

But in answer to the question. If the opportunity was given to me I'd give it a go. Trying to prevent the World Trade Centre disaster might be a logical choice, because I'd know enough about the specifics of it to make some attempt at convincing people it was going to happen.
