Suppose time travel were possible and you could either go forward in time or visit the past, we asked our staff would they rather go forward or backward a century. Here’s what everyone said:

“Due to my time spent in current society with the great advances in technology we have, I don’t think I would be equipped to adapt well or enjoy my time in 1900. I have no idea what technological or social constructs will exist in 2100, but I find the thought of time travel to the future more intriguing than going to the past and potentially disrupting what happened that led to this point in time. I just hope that radio broadcasting is an available career choice in 2100 because I’m sure my IT skills will be slightly antiquated. Furthermore, I’ll cross my fingers that sports are mostly intact as they exist now; if not, I will have some major adjusting to do before hopping on the air again.
Counter question: Can I just have the DeLorean and go back or forward to when I wish? I know I’ll end up in this area each time, but if I’m going to time travel, why not do it with some style? ”
Sikeston Sports Broadcast Announcer
I would rather travel back in time to 1900. The country was doing well. Industries and many large businesses were being created or improving. American sports Baseball, Basketball, and Football were just taking off and hitting their stride. I would love to have seen a baseball game back then! Watching guys like Honus Wagner and Cy Young, would be amazing! That would have been neat. Seeing different events and movements play out before my eyes would be fun. I have always thought about what it would be like to have the foreknowledge. To know what is going to happen before it does. Getting to meet my great grandparents would have been a blast as well. Going back in time would be my answer. If only I could get the DeLorean off “Back to the Future” to do the trick. Plus, I guess the uncertainty of the future is a bit…..well, uncertain. I like the idea of knowing what will be going on.

While the romanticism of the 20th-century history intrigues me, I am much more inclined to visit the future. I love science, space, and technology and would be very curious to see the surprises.
I would rather visit Earth in 2100. I’d be very curious to see how the human race has evolved, for better or for worse. This is an especially interesting question, considering our current day and age. We seem to be on the brink of enormous change, and I’d love to see how it all pans out. A big reason I’d choose to visit the future is that it would be temporary. If I were to move to one of these points in time permanently, I think I’d have to choose the past, because at least I know what happened. Who knows what the future holds.
Hope you enjoyed this weeks post. A special shout out to our General Manager, Christy Benton, for submitting this question. If you’d like to submit a question, just leave it in the comments below and don’t forget to join in on the fun and comment below with your answer!
