Hmm interesting thought experiment

You have a time machine that will only work for 3 trips (returning to the present doesn't count as a trip). What 3 events would you witness?

The birth, death, and resurrection of Christ. I know that it's all religious... but I'm super curious.

I just want to know if he really was black... or slightly burnt sienna, haha.

Pack well and you can probably just hang out for a week and check the tomb. That gets you another trip somewhere!

Death of Christ would be on my list as well (even though you'd probably have to be pretty sharp to catch it.)

ummm... my other two off the top of my head would be Hamlet at the Globe, and (if I could swing it) some way to see but not participate in the Battle of Agincourt.

Without giving it much though: Woodstock, Marilyn Monroe's death, A Pink Floyd concert, either The Wall or Dark Side tour.

How does this sound?
1. Visit the new world and do whatever is needed to make sure the British maintain control.

2. Visit Hitler as a child and kill him in his sleep.

3. Visit Japan during the Tokugawa Shogunate.

i would like to see the burgess shale, or cambrian life while it was alive.
i would like to see real dinosaurs, but picking a time and place would be hard.
take a long vacation and travel the world of 1901
