All of time and all of space....

12 posts in this topic

It's a quote from Doctor Who, when he offers someone the chance to join him in the TARDIS.

"All of time and all of space....where do you want to go?"

I think my first answer would be The White City.  That is, the Chicago World's Fair of 1893, the World's Columbian Exhibition.  It was a massive affair, a huge attraction for its day, with wonders of the modern world far and near.  I've been hearing about it for years, and it would be really cool to see it in person.

Then, I'd like to go somewhere with dragons.  Nice ones, mind, not ones that eat virgins and burn villages down that get too clever and decide to run out of virgins all at once.  Something like the dragons on Pern, or in How To Train Your Dragon.  Or even miniature dragons, like fire lizards or Flinx's minidrag.

I'm sure what I'd want to see after that would depend on how the dragons turned out.

 

So, how about you?  If you could go any time or place in the near-infinite universe, where would you want to go?

August 14, At the Lenin Shipyard in Gdańsk, Poland. The pebble that took 9 years to roll.

London, 1773 - 1775.  If I had to be more specific, a point where I could change the opinion and/or temperament of Solicitor-General Alexander Wedderburn, before he mocked and humiliated Ben Franklin in front of the Privy Council on January 29, 1774.

If Franklin's diplomatic mission was successful, North America could have remained British.

I can probably guess one reason, but the politics thread is locked. ;)

I should have specified, you can't change major historical events.  No killing Hitler or stopping Revolutions.  No telling your younger self to buy the winning Powerball ticket (unless you've already won and recall getting the numbers from a mysterious stranger).  This is just places to see, things to experience.   ;-P

Ok, so going to May 5, 1973 for the Kentucky Derby might be fun, I wouldn't be allowed to place a bet on Secretariat.  Good to know.

In that case, I would like to see the first meeting between the Native Americans and the Vikings.  With subtitles if possible.

Austin, Texas. August 1st, 1966. I was about 2½ years old then. Don't ask me why I'd want to go there, I've just always had this morbid curiosity about this horrible event that took place in the city where I was born.

I would want to visit it from several angles—close up and personal (but not targetable), nearby and listening to radio coverage, and somewhere where I could see the television coverage with a group of people (like in a lunch counter or similar).
