It's Monday morning and our last OFFTOP is about to hit the magic 1,000-comment mark, so here's a nice fresh OFFTOP with a new set of prompts. This time, the prompts have a historical bent:
- In which historical era would you want to live? Or if living is too big a commitment, which would you want to visit?
- If you could travel to the past, would you work your knowledge of future events to generate huge profits? What would be your preferred method?
- If you could bring any object into the past to blow people's minds, what would it be?
- What is the most dramatic thing any of your ancestors has done?
- What's your favorite classic movie? (pre-1970)
- If you could live through a historic sports season first-hand, with no pre-knowledge of what would happen, which league, team, and season would you choose?
- What are your favorite fashions from the past? Do you prefer 1980s pastel? 1970s tie-dye? 1910 broadcloth?
- Do you have a favorite little-known and underrated historical event? It could be funny, unexpected, ridiculous or inspiring, but obviously events of a political nature should be avoided. Extra imaginary points are awarded if your answer prompts many hours of Wikipedia exploration.
I'm including quite a few prompts, because I'm guessing quite a few people will pass on some of the weightier questions. And, of course, all of the normal topics and general discussion are welcome.
