...anywhere in history, that is, where would it be?
On Friday, we take you to what's billed as "virtual Rome" - a virtual-reality exhibit that aims to show tourists what Rome was like when the Colosseum was new. Really cool idea, though I wondered why all of the characters in the exhibit had British accents. (Shouldn't they have had Latin/Italian accents?)
Anyway, it got us talking about where we'd go if we could virtually travel to any city in history. And that got us wondering about where you'd go if you could virtually travel to any city in history...
Carl Azuz, Anchor
If I could virtually travel anywhere in the world i would travel to the set of cnn student news.
IF I could virtually travel ANYWHERE in the world, i would travel to the Medditeranean Sea and have a picnic with John McCain.
Since I was in 4th grade I've always wanted to go to Pompeii, in turn I would want to travel back to when Vesuvius erupted. From safe grounds of course.
If I could go anywhere in history it would be the place where Jesus Christ died.
I would go back in time and watch the very first olympics.
if i could travel to any city in history i would travel to acient Ciro, Egypt. I would choose to go there because todays scientists don't know everything about them, and going there could really help us. I would be able to learn about the ancient Pharaohs and their styles of life. It would be so intresting and cool.
I go to Thomas Edison's lab and give him a florescent light bulb and tell him to make the first light bulb like that to help the environment.
I would go back in time and invest in Microsoft.
If I could go anywhere virtually I'd go to Egypt, and Greek. I want to know what really happend back then and how many things were created. It would be a whole new learning experiance because you could see it instead of being told it.
If i could go any were i would go to paris, France because it is very pretty and i realy want to see the Ifle tower and Arc de Triumph
I would want to go back and see one of Jesus's ministries
I have always wanted to see the roaring 20's. I would love to see the speakeasies and the welldressed mobsters with their flapper girls on their arms. I love the clothes from that time period and the movies make the early Mafia look so romantic.
If i could go any were i would go to mars and i want to be the first per son to step on it to
It would probably be around the American Civil War because I reenact that time period and it would be interesting to see the real thing instead of just actors and actresses or I would go to the time when my ancestors were alive because it would be neat to learn where they came from.
If I had the luck of going somewhere in the past it would be Ancient Egypt as it seems to be a fascinating place bescause of all its arts and stuff. I would like to experience the constructions of pyramids and see how they created them in THE OLD DAYS .
I would go back to see a play by Shakespere. I really like his plays. If not, i would go see a play by Homer.
If i could travel anywhere virtually I would most likely travel to ancient Italy
I'd go back when the Statue of Liberty was built. I'd just like to see how they got it to New York and how they built it.
l love the ancient Greeks and Romans, I would love to Virtually travel back to that time period and see what life was really like for the common people.
I would go back to world war two and see the nazis and jews ans americans battlineg it out !
I would travel to any where the cave man where just to learn more about them
I would go to Iraq and watch the war, I would also like to go to Poland to see the castles but because, My family is Polish I went there in my 3rd grade to see relatives then went to Kracow (Name where castles were from mostly!) Also I have to say... They have lots of history!
I don't know! There's so many interesting places and events!
I would love to go Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome. The elaborate buildings and structures that they made would be amazing to see in real life. I'd also would want to learn so much more about the goddesses and gods that they worshipped while I was there.
I would go to egypt because that is one of my intrest. If i could i would study everything there is to know about egypt. I also would lik to see the amazing structures that they have built.
Call me selfish, But I'd go back in time before Google was invented and invent a magor search engine called Infinity. Then, I'd go back further and, like Merrill said, invest alot of the money I made from my search engine in Microsoft. I'd then come back to the present and buy a really fancy car, like a Lamborghini Murcielago. Then I'd hire really good scientists to turn my car into a time machine, like in "Back to the Future" so I could travel anywhere or anytime. Then, to make up for my selfishness, I'd go back in time and try to stop alot wars from happening. Then I'd invent alot of useful things before they were invented, this time not for the money, but for the good of helping people. But above all things, I'd go back in time and save myself from making a fool of myself sometime in my life.
texting while driving is not smart. you should have some in the car with you and tell them what to say. PEACE
If I could go anywhere I would go to the Greek time to learn about the devices they used and how they lived considering they created most of the things we have now or at least the idea.
I would want to go to when the Earth was first made... and be the first human there!
I would go to..Rome.
All the ancient stuff there are really amazing!
I think I'd like to go back to my own past before we moved.
if i could go ANYWHERe in history i would shose somewhere like pompeii. i think it would be really cool to go somewhere that experienced a tradgedy. the story of pompeii really fascinates me and i would love to visit there and meet some of the people.
If I could go back in time I would go back to when Anck su Namun and King Tut was around.
If I could go anywhere I would go to the first gladiator fight. It would be cool to see a man fight a lion or tigers, bears even. It would be so awesome!
I think that if I could go anywhere in history I would probably go back to ancient Egypt. I would want to go there so that I could see what it was like there. I would like to see the Pharaohs. I think that it would be really cool there.
If I could virtually travel to any point in history, I would go to the first Beatles concert.
Personally, I think I would go to korea. No particular time. Just want to go there because my dad went there for work. While he was there he went to a museum like deal with the main idea of their history and from the pic's it was awesome!
If I could go to anytime I would go back to when there were dinosaurs. I would try to communicate with the dinosaurs and tell them that they were all going to die. If they knew they were going to die then they could try and prevent dying. I would be just like the flinstones. It would be cool to live with the dinosaurs.
If I could go anywhere back in time, I would go to the 1812 war. The main reason is because in the beginning of the war, we were DIEING!!!!!! I just want to see the part where we turned around and sent them flying! I love war movies, so actually seeing the British run for their lives would just make my day!
I would go back to the ancient Mid East. I want to witness what life was like for the nobles. I also want to see the Jewish prophets to see what went on. What I would want to see most of all is all of the things Jesus did. This would be a good experience.
Wow if I could go back in time I never no where I would go. I would go back in time when chocolate was made. I would go back there just so I would be the first one to try it because.... well I really like chocolate. That is the tastiest time EVERRRRRR.
I think I would probably go to Rome back when it was being built. I would like to go there because it would be cool to see the collosium and be in there. It would also be nice to see what Rome actually looked like before it was destroyed. That is why I would like to go to Rome
If I could go anywhere than I would go back in time when Abraham Lincoln was president and see what he did to break the slave trade and how he got shot. I would want to see him because he seems like a very cool guy and I would like to see how smart he was why the person that shot him did it and see why and maybe change his mind.
If I could go back in time to any period, I think that I would want to go back to when the American Revolution took place. My reasoning for this would be because with the election just taking place and a spiffy new president elect in office, we kind of forgot what our country is about and what kind of virtues it was founded on. We get so caught up about what is "politically correct" and get so angry with our fellow citizens because of their political views that we forget about what makes us so great. We weren't founded on a "democratic" or "republican" discipline. It makes me sad, and I think that if everyone went back in time and learned to appreciate all of the hurt we had to go through to get our independence, we wouldn't get so caught up in the upcoming culture.
If I could go anywhere in history, I would want to go back to the time of the ice age. I think it would be cool to experience my home town back in the time of no electricity and when the first humans evolved. Maybe I could show the cavemen civilization how to hunt and survive. Upon being in the time of the ice age, I would also do a little hunting. I love to hunt!
I would like to go back to colonial times. I would want to go back to colonial times just to experience what everything was like. During those times there was no t.v's, video games, or any technology stuff and it would be so different. I think it was so interesting back then with all the pretty dresses, and I think it would be interesting to live in there houses and go to those schools.
I would want to go back in time to when I was born that way when ever something I did was bad or that I didn't like I could just go up to myself and say don't do that. People are always like oh I wish I hadn't done that. I could also like school myself and become the most smartest kid in the world. That would be really fun.
I think that I would want to go back to the Civil war time. I want to go back to that time because the women got to wear hoop-dress (which is a really puffy dress) and because they got to go to royal dances (balls). This is the time period that I would want to go back to.
I would want to go back to where i was five. I miss them times. They were the bomb my and my ex-boyfriend/best friend never faught hes different now.I would tell him how it is then come back to 2008. this would rock!
I would definatly go back to the Dark times. It would be awesome to go back and see all of the castles and other things that they had back then that we don't have now. Also maybe I could find like a missing ancient weapon like a flame thrower from that age, and bring back the design and and get a lot of money for it. Maybe I could see if dragons actually existed at that time. Basically I would go back for my own purposes.
I would go back to when civilization first was created and I would invent everything that doesn't pollute the air and helps us. Then, we would be more advanced in technology. If I invented everything, we would be dead by now.
if i could travel to any city in history i would travel to ancient Ciro, Egypt. I would choose to go there because todays scientists don’t know everything about them, and going there could really help us. I would be able to learn about the ancient Pharaohs and their styles of life. It would be so interesting and cool.
If I could go back in time, I would go back to the prehistoric time. When there i would purposely get eaten. So then when archeologist discovered me they would think that people actually lived. I would make life confusing.
If I could go back in time I would go back to when the earth was first made so I could see like all the things that were there. Plus it would be cool to b the first human being to like walk in the planet.
If i could go back to when the civil war took place i would. I would like to go there for many reasons. first of all i want to go back in those times to see what those people were like and how people lived and compare them to us and how we live and how we are like. I would just get a lot of my questions answered. Maybe i would see my some people that i know that aren't alive now just like my grandpa. if i were able to go back in the time that the civil war took place then i would be as happy as i can be only because i would have experienced a lot more than my friends and family that are here today. I would love to go back in the olden days. You know we can if you want to get a time machine(ha, ha) that was a joke. But like i said i would love to go back when the civil war took place.
If I could go back i time, I would go back to when I was very little and I would like to see how I acted, and what I did or said when I was little. Like all the time people are like, "Oh I wish I wouldn't have done that or, I wish I would have done that different." If I could go to another place, I would want to go back to egyption time, because that time in history, I think is so cool, I would live in a pyramid and I would rule a place in egypt and with other stuff like what they wear and what they eat, and other stuff like that.
Where would i go if i could go back in time? I would go back to the time of Rosa Parks. I would go because back then blacks were forced to do things they did not want to, like give their seats to a white person on the bus. I don't think that is right they should have never made them do that. I would have done the same thing as her if i was in that situation and was her. If i did go back to that time period i would stand up for her and all the other people that were forced to do what they didn't want to. I would have did my best to help them even if that means me getting killed or something like that. Also i would like to go back to the time of the slaves. I would go back then because i would like to help them escape or i would make sure they were never slaves ever again. i don't like the way the people back then were treated it was not right and if i was there i would have done something about it or at least tried my best. I don't like people treating others like garbage, it is not right no one is better then anyone else. So i would love to go back to the time when the blacks were treated like they were bad people.
If I could go back in time I would choose to go back to where there were not a lot of electronics invented yet. Like, computers, i-pods, MP3 players, and game systems. My mom always tells me to go outside to find something to do and to not watch T.V. or stay on the computer all day because she never had any of the the things all the teens have now these days and the fresh air is better for you. If people were back in the old days and didn't electronics they would probably be more active.
IF i could travel anywhere in the world it would be Paris or Germany Paris to see the Eifel tower Germany to see the new band TOKYO HOTEL
If I could go back in time, I would go to the 1800's in London or somewhere over there and go to the balls they used to have and wear those huge and elaborate dresses. I would also like to go back to the 20's in the US and be a flapper. They made society fun and broke out of the traditional way of life for the women back then.
I would go to the avergla to cash allgter to rush hunt feed.

A city that I would like to travel to in history will be to the Mayan Civilization. The Mayans are said to be peaceful accept for some aspects, I would like to see what that was.

I would want to go to Nagasaki, Japan on August 9th, 1945 at 11:01a.m. because that is when the United States dropped "Fat Man" on Nagasaki during World War II. I would actually like to see the damage and explosion because no one ever gets into the bombing of Nagasaki as much as the bombing of Hiroshima. Plus I would want to warn the people so that their would not have been as much bloodshed. No country deserves to be bombed by atomic bombs twice!
I would like to go to the lost colony of Roanoke. It would be awesome to uncover the mystery of what really happened to those settlers.
