Your local electronics store has just started selling time machines, anywhere doors, and invisibility helmets. You can only afford one. Which of these do you buy, and why?
A time machine, a time machine for my entire fortune. For that matter an anywhere door is also great. But traveling back in time or forwards into the future would be just awesome. I wanna see what it was like 2000 years ago. Or go even further and see what the dinosaurs were upto. Maybe even kill and eat a brontosaurus and make some brontosaurus burgers.
Check out the evolution of man from ape like creatures to modern man. See what it was like during the middle ages and maybe kill a few religious figures and dictators or tyrants before they can come into power and influence. Romance a few beauties of the past, check out Marilyn Monroe. Do a lot of debauchery and revelry with the Romans at the height of their powerful empire.
And the future, well that would be interesting. What will the world be like in a 100 years, a 1000 years? 5000 years from now, will we still be living on this planet? Or do we just have some off world colonies and stations? Will space travel be as easy as taking your car and going for a ride? Things could be exciting.
