Loving all the time travel theories on here, i mean come on ffs as if anyone really has a scooby doo how it could be achieved. I'll just wait for the alien visitors to show us how it's done when they finally pay us a visit :)

What's to know? A scapegoat got executed, nothing else.

Unless you're talking about how he MIGHT have been "rescued", taken down from there, hid in another country and eventually spawn the "true" royal family? The Windsors won't be happy about this, best keep quiet :wink:

You'd really need to go back to 9 months BC and catch Mary out for that.

I'd go back just far enough to buy a DeLorean when the company went bust.

I'd go back in time to when I was 16 with a list of things that i'd done that I wasn't proud of or life choices that I faced and I had to make a choice and try and stop myself from doing them or in some cases actually go along and do them! Though I'd probably tell myself to get lost like Cartman in that time travel episode that homages Buck Rogers. :lol:

I know life is about learning from good and bad experiences but sometimes you do ask yourself; what if I didn't work at this company or what would I be doing if I studied this course instead of that one. Would I have been more happier if I bought a ZX Spectrum instead of an Oric -1.....?

Would my life have been for better or for worse...One thing I do know is that I will never know because those moments have now passed me by.

You still can! Okay, it's a long expensive and dangerous voyage to the bottom of the sea...but technically you can see the Titanic in person :wink:

But that would create a rift in the space-time continuum, destroying the universe.

But it would stop the James Cameron film being made. I think the destruction of the universe is a small price to pay for that.
