Would you rather go back in time and meet some of your ancestors or go in to the future and meet some of your descendants?
What? Do my kids turn out to be assholes or something?
Well, they start out that way...
I completely plan on not having descendants.
Descendants. I know I have ancestors, but descendants means wife and kids at some point.
Get to the future, no one's there.
I don't plan on having descendants.
I won't have any children of my own, but I would like to see the impact my works will make on future generations of leaders and families..
Can I tell my ancestors to invest in apple?
Hey Emily, good job on SOH On Air!
My great great grandmother was a Civil War widow who died just short if her hundred and third birthday. It would have been so interesting to of met her.
Wow, that's awesome to have had family that goes back that far! I hope old age runs in the family, you'll have many more years to enjoy those adorable grandkids!
Emily, you're at 50/50, you should take a pic and post it to IG. Good job. ;-)
I missed it :(
Researching my family history is a hobby, I'd have to go back & meet a bunch of people! I think my boys will take care of the descendants part pretty well, I'm not worried.
I've got some pretty rad ancestors. I'd pick them.
Ancestors, for sure.
I would like to meet my great great grandfather who immigrated as a 17 year old.
Not sure I'll have any descendants. I've got at least one historically significant ancestor.
Ancestors. I'd like to know where I really come from.
My mom is adopted and its hard to trace my ancestry far...I'd love to see where I come from
I don't care either way about people related to me or not. I just want to talk to anybody from the future. We already know what happened in the past.
Not everything though.
Enough for me ;)
Descendants, just to make sure there's no dee-dee-dees. And to make sure the movie "Idocracy" isn't a prophecy...
Dumbasses, morons, dipshìts, etc...
Few of my ancestors spoke English
Great question!! I said ancestors but that has more to do with my history obsession.
Thanks! Me too :) I'd be interested to see there thoughts on "current" events of the past
I'll go forward in time to see what my legacy is.
Interesting male vs female stats :)
Males are obsessed with their legacies.
I would love to go back to Sicily 300-400 years and meet who came before me.
Cool! Just a bit farther back in time, and you might bump into Leonardo da Vinci! That is most excellent!
An amazing time to be alive!
How cool it'd be, if we could communicate while you were back in that time, and I jus' kind o' hung out in this time! :D
Just don't get sick, though. "Doctors" had weird ways of treatin' people, back in the olden days! :-/
Who knows Gonzo - it is my belief that souls travel in packs and perhaps we knew each other in another time and SOH is our way of meeting up in this time again? I like to think that. Ive gotten attached to some here i cant imagine not knowing.
Do you live near Sedona? Is that near you? Spooky place.
As if right now descendants could be a very lonely trip. Past for me please.
I'd go to the future. I have a feeling I'd want to back and punch some ancestors in the face...or elsewhere.
Ancestors, I guess, since there aren't going to be any descendants. My only child does not have children.
Awwww! You would have been an amazing grandma, though ;-)
My ancestors were either Vikings, or slaves of the Mongol Empire, So Im just gonna play it safe and see the future
I've done humanity a huge favor by not reproducing.
What if I go back in time and accidentally kill my grandfather or fall in love with my grandmother? Yikes!
I'll play it safe and go to the future.
Well that would be bad. We'll just say hypothetically that your time travel wouldn't change the past or future in this situation.
I'd probably still travel to the future. That way, I get the added bonus of seeing all the wild technologies they develop between now and then.
Or fall in love with -gulp- your mother!...
Thank you Miss Em, GREAT question!! I think I know about as much as I need/want to know of my kin, present and past. I wanna see what happens in the tomorrows, to see that the seeds sown now, bore beautiful fruit! :D
Thanks gonzo :)
I don't anticipate direct descendants, but I'd like to meet far-future people to see how much like the Borg we become. I'm hopeful.
I wanna meet my Grandpa Adam and Grandma Eve
I want to go back in time.
Me too! But I think both would be very interesting :)
Ok, if I ever get a real offer to go back in time, I'll bring you with me :)
Sounds like a fun adventure!
I agree, it really does! Fun to think about.
You always post the best polls!
Dah dada dun dun ta dah!
Thanks EB :)
Wanna come along MisterE?
How far back?
I don't want to go back further than 1800.
Are you in or out?
I don't want to mess with the time-space continuum...
Why do you have to make it so complicated?
Because I'm a complicated person. =)
Yes, I suppose you are :)
Assume it's like in Harry Potter. the events that happened in the past happened because you go back in time in the future.
Kudos has just managed to split my neuro-processors. :-/
