A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!

How about this: The moment you alter the timeline, time splits - the timeline which you left continues on unabated, your absence
not affecting it in the least.  BUT, from the point you interfered forwards, you create a separate timeline, in which the consequences
of your action ripple forward, changing small things at first, and then greater and greater things, until you forge a future vastly different
from the one you left?

If I were going to be marooned in the past, I think I MIGHT prefer ancient Rome to 19th Century America.  At least, an ancient Rome
where I was a friend to the most powerful person on earth.  Plus GJC would probably have taught those rascally Parthians a lesson
in humility had he lived . . . .

Or he might have taught a whole different lesson of the divine that exists in each of us, and how we all represent Creation by our natural beauty and differences. That we should seek the divine in everything around us and not in structures built to honor religion. I wish that lesson could be taught and learned by everyone. Then we could truly love one another.

Never mind me. I just had a friend deal with Family Services because some psycho neighbor jealous of my friend decided to try to ruin her family.

I would want to be a follower of Jesus Christ in his lifetime or possibly an actor in 60's sex films they seem to really have a good time.


Re Hendrix/ Lennon et all they were musicians. Hendrix may well have ended up making bad jazz fusion or something. or had a Clapton like career arch / songs that mostly conveyed how rich he is

Lester, those are two VERY different takes on "loving your neighbor"!!!

Java - I just don't see Gaius Julius Caesar teaching the Parthians that kind of lesson.

Sorry, thought you were talking about Jesus. I suppose I should read back further.

Ceasar wouldn't have taught that kind of lesson. He'd be better at military tactics and how to undermine a country to make it ripe for conquering. He was a fairly smart cookie, from what little I know.

Abe Lincoln.

I'd kill Stalin and let Trotsky take over.

Randy Rhoads might have gone on to do some great stuff if he hadn't died.  That whole blending of classical music and heavy metal guitar...would have been interesting to see where he would have taken it in another 10 years.

RC - I don't know. the legacy of Trotsky lives on in the neoconservatives, the warmongering DC based worst thing that ever happened to this country. Stalin at least was at least not an elitist.

Also, another good era would be to have been a silent film actor they didn't even have to learn lines and they partied like crazy.

Uh, dude...Stalin murdered about 20 million of the people under his power. THAT is the worst kind of Elitist...as HE is the most important thing in the world- only the tyrant's life matters.
 Other people are just pie crusts to be broken.

I'm certainly not excusing Stalin's crimes, but I think Trotsky may have actually been worse. Trotsky vs Stalin is a common argument in commie circles and I think Trotsky was more neferious in some ways. he was an internationalist and not in a good way, whereas Stalin at least mainly killed his own people

Communism itself was the main evil, IMO.

Lenin, Stalin, Trotsky - human life meant nothing to any of them.  Everyone was expendable as long as their demise
served the rise of the proletariat state - especially the lives of the proletariats themselves.  Stalin's crimes were enormous -
I think 20 million may well be lowballing the death toll he inflicted on the Russians - But Lenin and Trotsky would have
done just as bad if not worse had they been given 30 years in power.

Any ideology that regards human life as a disposable commodity is dangerous.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
