Time machine?

post #1 of 29

If you could go back 120 years or ahead 120 years, which way would you go?
(no fair saying neither)

Backwards... I think in 120 years people are not going to be as friendly as they were back then!

I was thinking the same thing Squirt, but oh how I'd hate to have to clean the game that Jerry would have to hunt for our dinners..........UGH! I seriously think we would be vegetarians!

Forward. Life will be much easier in 120 years.

Foward...
It may not be friendlier or easier but it sure would be interesting to find out.

for how long?

Definitely back! I've always been interested in that time era

A tough one. 120 years back it would be so primitive and suffocatingly conservative. 120 years in the future we'll probably not be able to go out because of the sun or see any wild animals. So, neither, unless we'll manage to turn the tide, then forward.

That is a tough one. I'd love to go back in time - but for how long? I'm so interested in what the world will be like in 120 years from now, maybe it will be better? Who knows.

I choose backwards
post #9 of 29
Without a doubt backwards

I'd go back and be a famous prophet! I'd know all about WWI and WWII and Vietnam... I'd go down in history!

Good point!

I'll go back. I don't know how I'd get around 120 years from now since there will be no gas, or atleast affordable gas.

Definitely back 120 years. Life was soooo much simpler; and people in general were friendlier and had better manners. More outdoors & less indoors, as in not as many buildings, smog & pollution. No cars (technically there were but hardly any), etc. etc. I could name a hundred reasons. I personally don't like how life is becoming so 'easy' and digitalized. I could live without a computer.

I mean there ARE some constructive new advances these days, like medicines and things like that, but IMO a lot more destructive things.

I guess it would be interesting, just out of curiosity, to see what life would be like 120 yrs into the future ... but I wouldn't want to stay there. So if I could only go one way, I would go back

well susie,I saw 'the time machine' when i was a kid,and it really freaked me out,so i dont think i could go forward or backward


except maybe a week ahead to find out the lotto results then i'd come back.


but then, knowing my luck i'd get stuck in the future and by the time i got back,everyone would be in the future and i'd be stuck in the past

Go back. I am scared of what I see/read in the news everyday. I would hate to think of it 120 years from now.
post #24 of 29
Deffinately back. It just seems that things were much simpler. I'd even accept life in corsets and petticoats!
post #25 of 29
Hmm... Very good question Susie.... I think I would rather go forward because I would rather be in the future like on the Jetsons cartoon then the Flinstones.

LOL, good comparison Sandra!

I would go forward. It would be so interesting to see how the world is. I'm sure it would be completely different than it is now!

If it was temporary - I'd go back and get info on my ancestors. That's the genealogist in me. But if permanent? I think forward. I like the flush toilet and soft toilet paper too much!
