If I were to create a pie chart on my motivations for time travel, a small, but not un-substantial proportion would be devoted to wanting to see another time or place in the past… or the future, depending on which way down the time circuits this machine was traveling. A bigger, proportion, however would be spite. I aspire to time travel for some excellent comebacks and, of course, do-overs!
The Other AC posed an interesting question, related to being disappointed that his Smart Phone wasn’t yet smart enough to handle this time traveling business. What if you could text your past self, send only one message of 120 characters or less. His response was a lot more clever than mine (“Powerball numbers and a date” as opposed to my suggestion for lucrative careers, revealing what a whipped little worker I am).
What would you write in that one message (120 characters or less) to your past self?
