Anything from human history no matter how much you fuck up the present, what would you change?

In the same vein, id go back and make sure we had a president, during 9/11, who could actually use the tradgedy to bring the nation together and change things for the better. Rather then making everything worse.....

It is hard to decide between ensuring no-one listened to some ordinary bloke called Jesus or another ordinary bloke called Mohammed.  Then we wouldn't have Christianity or Islam. 
 
My only problem is, like the Butterfly Effect, taking away one bad thing can invariably lead to something worse.  I am sure some other nutjob would have invented a far worse religion.

The sci-fi channel is never wrong.  Star Trek is always telling me the dangers of messing with the past.  Hell, Bill & Ted nearly screwed it up for all of us  ^_^

If I could go back in time and change something, that change would have already occurred by our present time line, therefore negating the need for me to go back and change anything, unless the sheer act of me going back and changing something is what sets of that event to begin with. And so now knowing that, I have to NOT go back in time, to prevent my tampering with history, and causing whatever catastrophe from occurring in the first place_

I would go back in time and persuade the dudes that decided upon the meaning of horizontal and diagonal to reverse their decision.  Would this make life better for anyone...I very much doubt it, however it would make me feel better by not having to worry one of my many irrational pre-occupations.
 
If any person regardless of intentions go back in time to rectify an atrocity - that person would probably do sometime selfish thus causing a chain reaction and therefore making the future worst than it otherwise would have been.  Maybe someone did go back in time and screw things up, that's why we live in such a messed up World.  Maybe there are thousands of people going back in time everyday attempting to change what other time travellers have done.
 
Humanity had many thousands of years to make life better for themselves.  We live on a bountiful planet, yet we squabble over some of the most petty things.
There are enough resources on this planet if a minority of us stop being greedy and allow the majority access to those resources in order to live a comfortable life.
This is as good as it gets.   Other civilisations in the Universe probably know about us but stay away because we are scum of the Universe.

 Biff knows time travel
Try and improve on the course of human history for the betterment of mankind?  Fuck that, I'm selfish.  I'd go back and make sure I won the last 300+ million dollar lottery then I'd swim through a swimming pool of cash like Scrooge McDuck.

Hmmm....hard but probably go back in time pretend im the russian dude Dimitri Escrekov and kill hitler with a M1 Garant shot in his head.

I would do something that would immortalize my name in some fashion. Perhaps Shakespeare would have made soap operas about me instead of Julius Caesar.

castrate my father and pull out my mother's eggs with a fork when they were teenagers

@Ahmad_Metallic: You need to talk to someone who has been trained to deal with other peoples' psychological problems. I find it difficult to believe that anyone would make such a comment about their parents, even in jest.

If I were you I'd ask the guy above you at what point in the past he plans on cutting Hitler's dick off so you can show up a few days before him, because the prospect of making love to a dickless Hitler just sounds like such a bear.
#39 Edited by HitmanAgent47 (8576 posts) -

Bush being the president, I would let al gore win or someone else. That's what I would change, now the economy is worst than ever thanks to bush and his war time spending. With all of those conspiricy theories, he probally had some involvment in 9/11 since they said it was a demolition inside job.

Has anyone of you seen this new anti-aids commercial that's making it's round on the web? I don't dare to link it because it's... but google it if you want to see for yourselves.

If it doesn't involve a dickless Hitler then I'm going to be super fussy about you getting me involved in this.

Yeah but then humans wouldn't have been created, so you can't go back in time to destory them, but then they aren't destroyed...its a paradox.
 
 
I'd probably kill Hitler or Lenin, maybe Lenin, because Communism lead to more unessacary death than Hitler, if you count Mao Zedong's massacre of 70 million. I might consider stopping 9/11, but then we'd still be unsuspecting and another attack would have happened any way. I'd stop 9/11 if I could make it epic and heroic, like I could book myself on Flight whatever that hit the World Trade Center, prevent the terrorists from slitting the pilots throats, and then explain that there were other attacks that would happen that day. I'd explain that I was fluent in Arabic and overheard them talking about it. Then those flights would be grounded, and I would have saved the day, but more importantly thousands of people.

I'd go back to the point where England felt sorry and started to give back countries which we had taken over and owned and stop them from doing it. So we still could be considered apart of the most successful nations in the World. How the mighty have fallen

.British empire

.Roman empire

.Mongolian empire

no other nations will come close

So you wouldn't stop the tradgedy? Just... make the tradgedy actually... improve the country? Interesting. 
 
I would, uh, stop WW2/the Holocaust? I don't know.

You meant that sarcastically right?. Because you know Hitler wasn't involved in WW1, he was just a lowly Austrian soldier who had no power what so ever. And i'm sure Abraham was killed long before WW1 i think
