If George Washington threw a silver dollar across the Potomac (wasteful rich guy), and somehow it hit a space-time vortex and caused a wormhole ripple and he time-traveled into your living room, what fact about the Year 2006 do you think he would find most surprising or shocking?

I remember a while back, I put this link on my AIM profile titled "Please End Womens Suffraging All Around the World!". About ten or so signed it because they didn't even know what suffraging meant. When I told them about it boy were some pissed. Sign away, only 210 signatures so far. Let's get with it.

I would imagine the fact that the U.S. is the world's foremost superpower would surprise and please him. I bet back in his day, he would've never dreamed that we could compete with England and France.

Good question, Mr. Rain Man.

I think alarm clocks would freak him out. Especially the digital ones with the flippy numbers.

He would be amazed that people still juggle.

Oh. And microwavable pancakes. He wouldn't like the taste, but he would be awestrangled by the concept.

Women's sufferage, the outlawing of slavery, and that senators are directly elected by popular vote. :shrug:

I think he would be amazed and ashamed at how low the standards of the American people have fallen when it comes to electing a President.

I'll bet that cell phones would freak him out, too. Especially the ones with cameras and video. Can you imagine how that would've helped him if his scouts had had those during the war?

He'd be shocked and disappointed that the nation did not heed his farewell address but instead saw 140 locations with our troops on them, our current intervention...as well as the wholesale break down of federalism,direct election of Senators, the 16th Amendment a "supreme" Supreme Court and an executive branch that acts as CeePee !

Absolutely. From his pictures, he appears to be the kind of person with an appreciation for gadgetry, Mr. Rain Man.

And, now that you mention it, modern weaponry would likely be a big turn on for him. He would love jet planes and 500 lb bombs and machine guns. He'd be thinking, "Man, with one of those machine guns, we could have won the RW in about a friggin' day."

Bassboats crossing the Delaware at 60mph. And good aged bourbon whiskey. All he had was Monongahela rye whiskey, they hadn't discovered that corn whiskey aged in charred oak barrel = delish bourbon yet. And Victoria's Secrets advertising.

I wonder when they named the capital after him. I seem to recall that originally it was just called the District of Columbia.

That might surprise him a little. The whole state in the northwest thing, too.

I hadn't really thought about it, but people all over the world talk about "what's happening in Washington". His name has really become a global synonym for America and geopolitical power.
