A recent conspiracy theory has begun to circulate online with a video from Mike Tysons’ 1995 fight with Peter McNeeley showing what some people think looks like a modern day camera phone, when there were no camera phones available at the time.

As this article points out, there were camcorders that looked similar to what we see in the video, but we won’t let that sort of logic get in the way of a good time travel conspiracy. 

So, despite logic trying to ruin the fun, what would you do if you could time travel? We took to twitter to find out.


Most of the responses involved visiting a particular time or place. 

Some had specific goals in mind for their time travelling escapades.

As many films, books and tv programmes have shown us, time travel could offer as many benefits as it offers drawbacks, we've all heard the warning that making any changes in the past could drastically alter the present. How many of us have thought about going back in time to stop ourselves or someone else from doing something stupid? Or how about travelling to a time when you were making a big decision, and afterwards wondered what the alternative would have been like?

The Kettle server was hacked recently and nearly all of the content was deleted. We have managed to recover a lot of it but we are in desperate need of a new website. Can you spare a few quid...?
