Harry_Seldon: Go back in time, and play with Annette Funicello's breasts.
bluorangefyre: I'd say stop 9/11, but having watched Family Guy, that might be bad. Although, it'd certainly stop the Iraq War since Bush wouldn't have had a blank check dated 9/11/01. He'd have lived up to his father's legacy of being a one-term president. The Tea Party wouldn't exist. Nobody outside of Alaska would've heard the name Sarah Palin. Fake... er, Fox News would probably be grouped with Alex Jones & Co. We'd have had President McCain in '08 (really, nobody would've re-elected President Kerry), but this would've been the John McCain that didn't sell his soul to the Republican Party and he would've ushered in a new era of Republicans: more moderate, less derp. OWS wouldn't have happened, since there'd be no need for it. Right now I'm sure we'd be electing a new President as McCain realized he'd die in term #2, and then we'd be right back to this point of Obama and Romney running neck-and-neck, although Obama would be a bit more seasoned in the Senate. Nobody would be questioning Obama's birthplace since McCain was born in the Panama Canal Zone, which no longer exists as a U.S. territory.
middleoftheday: Undo the Louisiana Purchase for the lulz
middleoftheday: wizden: I imagine stopping the plague and the dark ages would profoundly affect where we are now.I dunno... maybe without the cultural control aspects of the Dark Ages, we'd all be f*cking turtles by now.

bdub77: Abort Purelilac's mom.
jbezorg: timelady: No one will read this now, and that fine.Non, rien de rien.I would change nothing. All the pain has been worth it. Else I would not be me. I didn't always see or feel that way, but years bring wisdom.So you could stop this thread from being posted....
3rotor: Funny how we so wish we could change the past, when we are right here, in the present, having the ability to change the past of our own futures... in essence, we are all time-travelers, we just do not realize it...
diaphoresis: I would have killed Jimmy Carter when he was a teenager.
Saberus Terras: Here's what I'd change:Nothing.Seriously, changing one thing makes it meaningless, since it can be changed. By extension, that means all things could be changed, and the significance of life itself becomes moot.Anyone that goes to the past, I think will simply cease to exist through some mechanism built into the fabric of the universe, sort of like a space-temporal checksum. Yes, I think that the universe has a Reality ECC built in.
Fish_Fight!: prevent obama being born
Purelilac: Abort my mom.
xanadian: Anita Bryant would've been strung up from the nearest tree. Her and Falwell. People like that have hijacked the everloving shiat out of the Republican Party, and America in general.
wizden: I f*cking love cocaine.
wizden: Ha! Green.I think this one was a good call.
wizden: I think you know WHAR PENIS GOES.
we'refromthesamestory: wizden: xanadian: wizden: Oddly it also preserved the written word and eventually.. BAM. Thomas Aquinas.I get the feeling the written word would've survived just fine without the bible and the church...The monasteries of the time represented the vast majority of people who could actually read and write. It was pretty rare.Oppression does that...
bighoss: kellynoel: logistic: kellynoel: I'd stop my parent from getting pregnant with me.I'd stop the first person who ever fished for compliments and hope it stops the trend from ever starting.That's not fishing for compliments.I, for one, am happy you are here. The world is a better place with you in it.

Alpha Sierra Foxtrot: we'refromthesamestory: Genocide, all of them. Ever./I'm including the Armenian Genocide too///Go ahead, hate.I had that thought, but that's not really one thing...I mean, like, it's not just one event that you'd be stopping. I don't know which genocide I could possibly actually choose.
