The real question is; if you could experience any historical period, which would it be? In which case I would go to ancient Athens to hear Socrates speak. Unfortunately I do not understand ancient Greek and it is possible that Socrates didn't actually exist. These questions truly are obtuse. In which case I would go to the London of 1870 to soak up the culture which inspired the creation of Sherlock Holmes.

My answer to the actual question set is that I would gather a large amount of patents and go to London of 1850. I would publish these many patents widely and in large numbers, then return to a far more technologically advanced future. At which point, regardless of paradoxes, I would repeat the process but this time going back to 1900. Then 1950.

I think I'd really have to go back, find Jesus, get him drunk, pose him in a compromising position with a sheep and then bring all of Jerusalem 'round to see. That should put an end to Christianity.

"We follow the words of our lord, Jesus!"
"What, that crazy guy they caught fucking a sheep in Gethsemene Park last week?"

Where did you think the Easter bunny came from? It gets lonely up on Golgotha.
