Poll: If you could buy a round-trip ticket to travel through time- but as a "time-tourist" you would only be able to observe events, not alter them- which direction in time would you travel?
  • 41.8% - To the past! 254
  • 58.2% - To the future! 354

Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

The past... the future... they might both be equally depressing.

Thanks to up-to-the-minute tracking, I don't track my package so much as stalk it.

Neither, the past too sad to lose my family again and the future? ......No.

duh, I would go to the future to see what corporations are doing well, and then come back here and buy stock in them.

I'd get my round trip ticket with a stop on the way so I could go to both the past AND the future!

Definitely the future. We know about the past. The future is the great unknown.

Go to the future and observe some winning Powerball numbers.

Gotta go with the future. People in the past were universally horrible people.

There is practically no period in the past where I wouldn't throat punch folks for being genocidal asshats.

Past or future does not matter if you cant alter it just observe. I would watch the moon landing from the moon.

Neither, because the past can be so depressing, and if you were to see the future, you could lose everything. Overthink things, try to change things, try to fix things...but essentially... you just can't. So the future is pretty depressing too.
