Going with my other topic, if you could go back in time and meet anyone in the world, or just do something differently, who would you meet or what would you just do differently or what would you just want to experience over again?

I'm full of what ifs...so watch out....lol. :D

I would go back to my junior high and high school years. I would correct the many mistakes I made back then and listen to my parents a bit more. They were far more experienced than me, but I was too stubborn to listen.

Is realism an aspect? If not, I'd go visit our pal Hitler and give him a good swift kick in the crotch.

If you mean something realistic, I'd like to go back and see myself when I was younger. That'd be a trip.

These are some great responses :p To answer my own question...

Vincent Van Gogh...I think he was fascinating...and a bit crazy. LOL

I'd also go back and spend more time with my Aunt Janey. She was one great woman... :)

Of course if we went back and did something differently, we'd be changing where we are today....but it's interesting thinking about it.

The 300 Spartans who stopped Xerxes at Thermopylae.

God, what a conversation that would be.

Two chairs, very, very dark nova glasses, impeccable shielding so that nary a quark nor muon sqeeks through, Stephen Hawking when he could speak perfectly, knowing all that he knows today, 1 min. before the big bang and quite a time after. Hmmm...that's alot of popcorn and seltzer water. Hope the ice survives.

After that,

Pythagoras, Rudyard Kipling , Head keeper of Shambala, Quetzaquatl, Einstein of course, the pickle head at Atlantis that decided to mix black magic along with their own power source, Temujin, Sidartha Guttama, Mona Lisa, the man that painted that perfect circle when asked to draw one for the pope, thats a good start.
