This and every Monday, the Bweinh!tributors, having convened in secret for hours of reasoned debate and consideration, will issue a brief and binding ruling on an issue of great societal import.

This week’s question — Where and when would be your first destination in a time machine?

The council was unable to reach a majority ruling on this issue, although a plurality would travel to the past.

Josh offers this opinion, joined by Job:

The year 2000. I hear they’re going to have flying cars and everything.


Mike offers this opinion, joined by Erin:

To see my parents just before I was born. Haven’t you ever been curious what your parents were like before you came along?


Chloe offers this opinion, joined by David:

I would return to the Grecian Gold Age, where there were democratic city-states, which is the best form of government. And I would hang out with Aristotle.


David offers this opinion, joined by Tom:

San Francisco area in California, 1847. Only I wouldn’t be stupid enough to tell everyone, “Hey! There’s gold over here!”


Kaitlin offers this opinion, joined by Steve:

A few decades into the future — it would be nice to know what’s going to happen, since I spend an awful lot of time trying to figure it out.


Steve offers this opinion, joined by Kaitlin:

The original Resurrection Sunday. Seeing Him first would hopefully keep me from using it for mischief.


Djere offers this opinion:

If I had a time machine, it wouldn’t matter where I went first. I would be everywhere at the same time.


Erin offers this opinion:

Ancient Egypt, during the reign of Hatshepsut . . . because of the fascinating culture, architecture, and people.


Connie offers this opinion:

It’s too much power for me. No thanks.


MC-B played no part in the determination of this issue.
