If you could go back in time, and couldn't come back. Where and when would you go and why?

I would totally go back to the 60s Back to the Future II style with a sports almanac to bet on and enjoy the life of excess and good music!

You keep your sports almanac. I'll take a list of the winning lottery numbers.

Good call, but you'd really need to spread out the wins lol

I'd only play the big pots anyways.

I would go back to the 1960's also, but it would be to help fix a couple of the TV shows, like 'Lost in Space'.  I would recommend a few changes to the Jupiter II, like adding in bathroom stalls.  I would harden the robot so he couldn't be so easily hacked.  And what about Dr. Smith?  I would leave him on the first hostile planet they land on and be done with him.  

The robot should be programmed to ignore Dr. Smith.The robot should be programmed to ignore Dr. Smith.

Maybe I would also fix 'Let's Make a Deal'.  They gave away too much junk.  I would put some AMD computers behind those curtains.

I'll take curtain number 1 please...I'll take curtain number 1 please...

EZ, I would only go a few years and buy lots of Bitcoin before the BOOM. Should be suffice for any early retirement in style.

It's one of those things that you kick yourself in the butt for not doing. I'm way more aware of crypto now
