Yes! I know exactly what you mean by that. I've often thought the same.

Jeffro;4568395If somebody planned to go back in time and live in the 17-1600's, they wouldn't have a clue how to survive. Our instincts have been so deluded by technology that adjusting to the way things were before electricity, microwave ovens, a working plumbing system, central heating, air conditioning, and other "essentials" would be scathingly hard if not impossible.

It wouldn't be that hard. Well, I shouldn't say that, but it would be perfectly possible, it would be hard by virtue of the fact that life back then was fucking hard. Instincts don't change in a couple hundred years, they're still there, alive and well. Hundreds of people are stranded and lost in the wilderness each year, many of the ones who survive are asked how they knew to survive and usually the answer is that "they just knew."

Maybe the "high-nosed nobles" living in big mansions wouldn't survive. I don't think i 'd have such a hard time though.

That's probably because they've hiked before, they've trained for the unthinkable, and they knew how to react when the time has come. Put some paper pusher from New York in the wilderness and he wouldn't have a fucking clue what to do to survive.

I'd like to see the ratio of people who survived and people who have turned up "missing" in the wilderness. I'm sure the latter would heavily outweigh the former.

No one just sits around in mansions eating cake and frowning over the peasantry anymore. Even billionaires go out and have fun. Not everyone could do it, but many could.

Yes, but they're not the same. The same "status" society still exists. The rich work and live in luxury, and the middle-class works their ass off.

Survival is in instincts, anyways. Any human would do what is required to survive. No matter what they say now, if they were stranded on an island with another human, and no source of food, they'd eat that man. It's the same with animals. They do what they need to do in order to survive.

Somethin tells me that we should'nt mess with the timecontinum thing. But on the other hand... I would mind going back in time just to visit some places, it's pretty cool, but I think we should'nt mess with it.

bud389;4567823The Fan ... Apparently, Terminator rules apply.[/quote] The terminator is the worst example of time travel. There is no way that those robots could kill john Conner. Visa ve the whole time machine(book) effect. Robot gets sent back in time. Kill john Conner in future no reason to send robot to past. Which means no robot gets sent to kill John Conner. Which mean he does not die. Which creates this huge loop whole in time. Of course the best way to stop John Conner was to never send a robot back in the first place.

If we today went back in time to the 17-1600's. We would destory mankind. Do you know how many germs and virus we have in our body. Yes we are inmunes to them, but the people back then wouldn't be. So our germs would kill loads of people.

For some reason this made me think of merlin. You know they say that merlin( the wizard) live time backwards so the first time he met you was the last time he met you.

If time travel is possiable it will probbly come with a bunch of bs rules. Don't kill anybutter flys, don't have sex with anyone from the past. They make be you great grandma. Don't convice people that you are a great and powerful wizard with your zippo.

I just had a theory: If you traveled back in time, would'nt that supposed to happen? For example, if you went to the date of the beggining of the Black Death plauge in europe, and you sneezed on someone by accident, and that ended up to be the plauge, would'nt that be part of history? As if you were planned to go back and do it, but with out knowing? It's just a thought...

Well heres a thought for yas, according to special relativaty, time travel is possible, but that assumes time began when the big bang started. The question is, did time exist before the big bang, regardless of atoms elements and all matter, what IS gravity, physicly, what is it, we know its a force, but what is it physicly, was it around before the big bang, E=Mc² is cause and effect, energy and matter, it takes something for something basicly, with noting you have nothing, if so the big bang could not have happened, was it gravity and time mixed together ? l think we dont understand time quite right. Time dilation is real, time travel is not. For time TRAVEL to be possible, [anyone watched sliders.....] as in go back in time or forward, at your own choice, mulitple universes are needed, for the endless amounts of time and each micro second of events, LOL its getting retarded.........How much energy is in the universe we can estimate. Even though 3/4 is unsee-able, there is not enough energy/matter in the entire universe to support such a novel loopy idea...LOL ! Hollywood.... If time is eternal, the question begs, what caused the big bang , how and why. And if we dont correctly understand time now, and we may not, it opens the doors to many new theories ! This collider is going to give us great insight to all that sorta stuff, and how AWSOME is it that its winding up nicely, and looks like were going to get a really good shot at this experiment !
