Which historic event would you attend?

Recommended Posts

If you had a magical time machine and had the chance to go to and be a part of one historic event, which one would you choose?

 

For me, I wish that I had been in Berlin on November 9, 1989 to witness the fall of the Berlin Wall. To see the old videos with the dancing and sheer joy in the streets still to this day gives me goosebumps.

 

What's your choice?

I would have attended the last Redbird ceremony. Or just looked back at 2006, my favorite year.

I would have been in NY when the Giants won the Super Bowl in 2008 B)

 

Missed the best of the celebrations being in Rhode Island for school (gag)

 

The only good part of being in RI was watching the news that day after the game and the newscasters looking like they wanted to cry. If I didn't speak any English and I turned on the TV, their somber faces would have made me think a space shuttle exploded or something.

I can't decide between these 4:

 

Pennsylvania station opens to inter-city electric trains after electrification from philadelphia complete.

 

Golden spike driven at promontory point.

 

Wright brothers fly for the first time.

 

VJ day, times square.

I would have loved to been on board R.M.S.Titanic; Whether I would've survived or not, I would want my name to be remembered that I was an important figure on the boat (Passenger or Employee) that helped others survive before me.:tup:

No no no, can't interfere. Naughty boy. You can only choose what you can attend or witness.
