    The temptation to fix a bunch of crap would be

    strong as hell! Damn butterfly effect. With my luck, I'd make sure certain things never happened and I would come back to a current timeline and find myself in a coma. lol. no good deed, as they say.

    Long ago and far away, in a land that time forgot. Before the days of Dylan or the dawn of Camelot. There lived a race of innocents; they were you and me, long ago and far away in the Land of Sandra Dee. Oh, there was truth and goodness in that land where we were born. Navels...
