    Time Travel - Where would you go? What would you do?

    If you could travel through time and space to the past, the future (trippy), or even the fucking present (WAY trippy) , what would you do? Would you go back in time to kill Hitler or Payton Manning before they could do so much damage? Would you go see Mozart rock balls, or maybe go to the...

    Giving blood
