I would have liked to be in the recording studio when Jackie Wilson recorded "Reet Petite". Is that obscure enough for you? :D

I would have liked to have been at/seen Lincoln's Gettysburg Address. Also, I would have liked to have seen the arrival of the (parts of?) the Statue of Liberty...I would have liked to have been at one of the very first meetings with American Indians as well. Would have liked to sat with Fossey among the mountain gorillas, too...Another, would have liked to laid on the scaffolding with Michelangelo whilst watching him paint in the Sistine Chapel.

So many places/times/people/events.
I would like to have seen (from a safe distance) Jack the Ripper. And to be able to travel in time and stop him from completing his killing sprees.

If you posit that I can go back in time, then it stands to reason that I can go forward in time, as well. I'd like to be there when we land on Mars. It's been a dream of mine since childhood.

I would have liked to have been one step behind Neil Armstrong in 1969 instead of watching from my couch.

I'd like to see the landing of our shipload of immigrants here in Australia back in 1953.
EC; have you been reading April White's Marking Time series?

I think I would've loved to have gone to Woodstock. I was too wussy to do it back then.

I would have like to have witnessed the Mesozoic Era, especially the Jurassic Period, and then finished it off by witnessing how those magnificent animals actually met their demise...

This is fun to see what everybody else wrote. I don't know what I would have liked to see. It would have been neat to see Leonardo da Vinci carving the Pieta though. Right now, I wish we could have been in the stands watching the Cubs win the World Series. Sigh...

Whoops, got the name wrong. Had to Google it myself. I would have love to be with Judge Joseph Crater on his last day on earth.

G.B., I did google Judge Joseph Crater and found the amazing story of his disappearance. How has he been missed right up there with Hoffa and D.B.Cooper. Thanks for the reference:-)

Thank you all for your wonderful ideas. We've got a "lovely bunch of coconuts" among this group of bloggers:-) It makes the QofTW worth posting to read your great responses.

Well, I might have liked to have met and spent an evening talking with Jesus, Budhha and Mohammed...maybe as close in time as I could. I would have liked to have been at my parents wedding. Any future space aliens we meet would be cool.

  18. I would like to go back in time to see my home town, Milledgeville, Georgia, when it was the capital of Georgia in the 1800s. And then again to see it evolve as a town. And then to watch my parents in the late 1950s when they moved there.

    But I love all the things in the comments above, too - the possibilities are endless!
