If you could would you?

I want to bring someone back from the 17 or 18 hundreds [no one important just someone] and show them all we have now. Seems fun to me. What would you show them now, if you could?

  • One of the first things I would probably show them would be television. It'd be fun to see their reactions when they see people and animals actually moving and talking on a screen. :)

  • I think if they just stood here for a few minutes they would see plenty to amaze them. Maybe they would just be curious more than shocked. Think about all those growing up in the 19th century saw. Trains, telephones, indoor plumbing, electricity. They saw plenty of things invented too. I would think they would be interested in technology but also in the advances in many people died from Diabetes, apendicitis, TB, all kinds of things that are cureable or treatable now days.

  • LOL Great question!!! That would be so fun... until he/she had a heart attack! We could explain what happened after the doc saves his/her life, which would probably throw him/her into another heart attack!!! lol

    buckler - I'm with you. I'd like to go back and visit and see their ways, THEN bring somebody back here. I'd be sure to do my best to prepare them for what they were going to see.
