    I've been thinking about this one for awhile.
    Haven't come up with a good answer yet.
    Because I can't really judge what the change will cause.
    My idea might just fuck this world up more then it already is.

    Have the hijackers get caught prior 9/11

    Around 3,000 died that day and the death toll in Iraq/Afghanistan is almost to 4,000 I believe.

    Not to mention the civillian casualties as well(I have heard many figures - 100,000 was the last I heard).

    I would hmm change the way the Presidental Vote went when Bush won..
    That was biggest load of shit I have ever seen..Things have been on a
    downward spiral ever since..I'm not much of a conspiracy theorist but
    I do think there is alot the public doesn't know or the Gov. doesn't want you
    to know..I feel like we have been lied to for years now..It's not just the movies
    and theories..It's the way this Pres. came into Office.. it all started with him
    winning Florida which btw just so happens to be the state his brother is
    Gov. of? Somthing never was quite right..Just my .02 looking fwd to the 08

    If I could change anything about my specific past I would have made myself work harder in high school. Be one of those kids that finishes early and with a good amount of college credit. If I had done that I think my life would have ended up differently. Who knows?

    Truth right there, brother. My best friends dad, (who ran the youth centre) was like a father to a lot of us. He was a taxi driver and got killed on his last call of the night by a drunk bitch in her SUV that ran a stop sign. EVEN though she was drunk, she got off vehicular manslaughter because the stop sign was partially obscured by a branch. She did get charged with D&D causing death, though.

    Still, people who D&D should be shot on sight by a police officer. One of the most irresponsible crimes out there, if that makes any sense.

    I'm sorry for ya man, I really am. I know what it's like to lose a family member, but I can only imagine what it would be like to lose my wife like that. It must be insane.

    This is going to sound really out there- but stay with me:

    If I could change one thing in the past that would have the best result for where we are in 2007, I'd go back and rewrite the resolution of the Cuban Missile Crisis to include direct, *limited* military conflict between US and Soviet forces.

    None of this pussyfooting around with client states- bring home to the general citizenry of both nations *exactly* what the consequences of pseudo-colonial pursuits like arms and influence peddling in the third world engender.

    The UN could have stepped in, brokering a cease fire after a few hundred sailors were killed, and maybe -just maybe- the cold war would have ended a quarter of a century earlier than it did; and without utter the utter economic devastation wrought by Soviet reform: Complete laissez faire capitalism in the name of 'freedom' and 'democracy' saw the farm sold out -stolen- from under the feet of the Soviet people for kopecks in the rouble.
