If I Had a Time Machine

Where would I go if I had a time machine?

To the future?
I'd love to witness what point technology reaches, but wouldn't bear to see more corruption in the world.

To the past?
I'd love to go to the past and live a simple life, meet famous people like poets, scientists, messengers and my ancestors. But I'd miss technology, mainly shower and internet.



NO easy hot shower/bubble bath/jacuzzi



NO KD450 job, four walls, office, and PC



NO playstation



NO ipod



NO Marina Mall, NO Marina Crescent, NO Chocolate Bar


same crowd, same 7:30 am direction, BUT NOT the same cars :)


Where would you go?

I think I will go to the past and change some events that I didn't like and also be the one who started microsoft instead of bill gates and I will be the richest person now :P

I don't wanna go to the future I am afraid I won't like what I will see!

I would go to the past to correct my mistakes:)

I thought of just answering I would go back 2 the past...lets say 70 yrs back..I admire how life was simple with high morals n real beauty..but again I said 2 myself..I don't wanna go back nor go ahead that much of my time..i'll live my moment..n face the surprises..

Flamingoliya said...

poet,
change what?
"that is too personal" won't be accepted as an answer :p

bill gates marrah wa7da? do you have his brains? i'd rather inherit :p

Flamingoliya said...

Ghassan,
going for this reason only tells me you did huge mistakes, care to share? :p

no i'm not curious (don't believe me) but maybe sharing mistakes would make us learn from you :)
one thing you should be thankful for is that you had the chance to change your major :)

Flamingoliya said...

Armani,
yes they had their time :)
no curiousity for the future?

Purgatory said...

I would go to the future because there is nothing for me in the past nor the present, say 100 years ahead. why? dont ask :P

purg,
i know why. because the world would freeze and there will be alot of penguins :p

Hopeless Poet said...

I am smarted than bill gates yeah :P

And no personal things, I will just try to make the world live in peace :p

Flamingoliya said...

poet,
hmmm was he a virgo?
live in peace? you can't do 2 things at the same time. if you were bill gates you would be addicted to the internet and won't have free time to save the world :Pp

Armani.Lab said...

1 year back and the rest years before that I was so curious of what my future carries for me..but till last year..it failed my expectations..so I prefer not 2 expect or be curious of what will go on...

we always vision our future to be a happy perfect one with many surprises...I say allah kareem ;)

Flamingoliya said...

Hopeless Poet said...

Now flamingoliya will want to go back in time to prevent that post from being posted in the other blog :p

Hopeless Poet said...

Actually I will go to the past and I will start betting on some sport events that I already know their results and get some money :P

Armani.Lab said...

أسابق الساعة وتسبقني الساعة..تقضي وأنا توني بأول ثوانيها

ابشتري وقت وين اسواق بياعة..ياللي تبيع الدقايق حد واشريها

ونفسي مثل باقي الاجواد طماعة..ابي أجدد على الفرحة لياليها

----
دايم السيف

*whenever future n time r mentioned I can't think of anything but that poem*

Gigi said...

Purgatory said...

Flamingoliya I took the wrong path that made me two years behind my goals. Not interesting mistakes that you would really like to hear:)

Flamingoliya said...

Gigi,

Flamingoliya said...

Ghassan,
2 years?! oh well, that is what makes us what we are now :)

Desert Girl said...

GREAT pictures and comments! :)

However... no women in the pictures, so things were a little different back then.

July 19, 1980.

Flamingoliya said...

Amerab,
