    like say....go to the 1980's and introduce to console makers the idea of flash based carts, downlodable games and maybe even the dpad before nintendo makes it.

    what would you do or change?

    If it were anything, it would be medical.

    I'd bring medical advancements and space travel to as far back as I could. Hopefully by the new 2013 was we would be far more advanced creatures.

    Go back and give automatic weapons to the native americans? Hmmm.

    Nah, I'd just go back a few years and patent "my" ideas for the iPod, iPad, Facebook and Twitter, and live a life of wealthy, degenerate hedonism.

    I would go all Forest Gump and invest in this juice company, Apple.

    Okay, Bono, with my immense wealth, all my servants/human chess pieces will be well paid and have a great healthcare plan. Now where's my Nobel Peace Prize? :cmad:

    I would supply modern military and communications technology to the Roman Empire so that they might conquer the entire world and then colonize space.

    Because it would be cool.

    I'd engineer microphones and speakers not to function when in the presence of boy-bands.

    I'd send a terminator to mark zucherberg. Sure there would still be the old social media sites, but I'm pretty sure the world would be so much better sans facebook

    Take a helicopter gunship to one of the ice ages and and wipe out the humans present so that all the species that we have obliterated would be restored. Since it looks like we are going to wipe ourselves out by one means or another anyway the other species should be given a chance. If paradox prevents racial self extermination then I would introduce scientific methodology to the ancient greeks.

    Kill Hitler.

    Oh with technology. I guess I could beat his brains out with a titanium laptop.

    Leave an Ipad in a forest and leave it as a mystery to the people living in the mid 1900s.

    That's why when you go back, you take a list of top 20 Nazis, and kill them all.

    Then hop on a train and go kill a few other monsters before they get into power.

    If Hitler had been killed then the next in command would have just taken his place & carried on with the mission.

    I don't think Hermann Goering would have been able to command ****. It takes a very, very rare charisma for a brutal dictator or enlightened despot to rule a nation with undivided loyalty. Hitler was the only one capable of that in Nazi Germany. Once he died, whether it be in 1945 or any time earlier, the Nazi infrastructure would have died with him.

    I don't think killing Hitler would be any easier just because we're from the future...?

    I think the rise of a fascist regime in Germany was inevitable. But Hitler was a fairly charismatic figure. Hitler is Germany, Germany is Hitler and all that.

    So, they might have ended up with a Mussolini, or a Franco, but Hitler was a unique kind of crazy.

    Still, just to be safe, like I said, kill all the top Nazi leaders.

    I'd take a collection of science textbooks, a laptop and medical technology back to before religion was created.
