we have all the time in the world.

It hit me today that time travel is probably, most likely, very impossible (I view time as a very abstract idea, but my point in this point is not to argue the philosophy of time). Simply, I'd like to know, loyal JJ Collective reader:

If you could travel to any place and time, where would you go and why?


Would your answer to this question change if you were told that you would not only observe that past, but you also had to take an active part in it? If
you were to choose ancient Egypt, you may be forced to work on the pyramids, and if you were to choose the greatest moment in your favorite team's most famous moment, you would be on the field/court/pitch and may cause them to lose the game (based on the fact that you are not a pro athlete...though, it is arguable that you would have caught the grounder that went through Bill Buckner's leg in Game Six of the 1986 World Series against the Mets, in which Buckner not only failed to catch a routine ground ball but also managed to go 0-for-5 at the plate with runners in scoring position). Why?
