i will try to stop the event from taking place when we thought of making money. because that is the biggest and the most dangerous thing in the whole world and if that can be prevented then a lot of other catastrophes can be stopped. this is because if u see almost all man made catastrophe are for power or for moeny

well, money or at least a commonly agreed and approved mode of payment is essential in some ways... like how many coconuts do i exchange for your mac air laptop? if money or currency wasn't invented and developed, we might still be doing that

i'd want to prevent hitler's rise to power or the 9-11 attack or the bombing of hiroshima and nagasaki... but to choose just one, i'd go back in time to prevent Ferdinand Magallanes in 'discovering' the Philippines or having Legazpi set foot in it. basically, i'd try to prevent any instance of colonization of my country... i feel as if our own culture got choked in too much western exposure and slavery, i want to give a chance for it to flourish on its own... though it might affect my being born since there is some spanish blood somewhere in my ancestry...

this is personal, i would have kept my sister from getting killed in a car wreck when she was 17. in other matters as in history i would have prevented the sept 11th attack on the twin towers.
