Hypothetical: Get your time travel assignment here.

Here's the situation: you show up for work on Monday morning, and as you're drinking your initial cup of coffee or Dr. Pepper, an e-mail arrives from your CEO with one of those red exclamation points on it. You open it up.

In a surprise move, your company is moving all operations to the Central African Republic. You can relocate there at a wage of 50 cents per day, plus the company will cover the cost of your first 100 rounds of self-protection ammo, or you can get laid off. You take the second option.

You start browsing through the job ads and come across this one:

Local community college seeks documenting historian. Must be open to new cultures, foods, and experiences.

You answer the ad and you get an interview immediately once they see your resume line item about proficiency in the Microsoft Office suite. You go to the interview and they ask questions about how much you need coffee and electricity and indoor plumbing. They seem satisfied with your answers.

A few days later, you get the nice e-mail that you’ve been accepted into the Twin Pines Community College Time Travel Project as a documenting historian. As it turns out, one of the dental technician students wired some machinery together oddly and created a time machine, so now Twin Pines is the world leader in time travel.

Your assignment will be to go back into the past, live for a year, and document what you see. You can pick your landing location anywhere on the earth. The only challenge is that the time machine picks a random year and no one can control it. You’ll arrive on January 1st according to the Gregorian calendar and depart on December 31st, but no one will know what year until you arrive. The machine overweights more recent years, so the odds are 50 percent that you’ll be more recent than the year 700 AD, and 80 percent that you’ll be more recent than 1,100 BC, but conceivably you could go all the way back to the earth’s beginning.

If you accept the job I’ll randomly assign you a year, and you’ll have to report back on where you would go and what you would try to document. Assume that you will be equipped with a translation device and that you will not change history if you interact with it. Any people or creatures will merely see you as an oddity and minor annoyance, kind of like Michael Strahan on TV shows.

Who wishes to enter the Twin Pines time machine? Volunteer in the thread and I’ll assign you a year.

Doesn't seem like a whole lot went on in 927 BC other than a couple of solar eclipses. Think I'm just going to throw on a leisure suit and catch up with Dartgod in 1973.

I bet there weren't terrorists there then, though.

Oh, who am I kidding? There's probably always been terrorists there.

Of course, you didn't have Islam so they were probably blowing up stuff for some camel god or something.

Really? I was kind of hoping for something before I was born.

If I was allowed to change history, the Miami Dolphins would no longer have the only perfect season in the NFL.

There was a solar eclipse that year. You could watch all of the tribespeople freak out when you make the sun disappear.

And King Solomon was alive at that point, so you could hear him espousing wisdom. But maybe that's not as good as understanding the life and times of a 26 year-old Farrah Fawcett.

How does 2287 BC sound? I bet you could find some free time to bop back for Bono.

That sounds like good pyramid-watching years.

This is pretty fascinating.

Thutmose I, Pharaoh of the 18th Dynasty of Egypt, died in 1482 BC. He is one of the more popular candidates for the Pharaoh of Egypt depicted in the Bible.

The Battle of Megiddo is thought by some to have occurred in 1482 (though this is not the most mainstream date, apparently). This was the first military engagement formally recorded by history and the first reported use of the composite bow. (This site is traditionally considered synonymous with the valley of Armageddon)

Thutmose I may also have been the first Egyptian ruler buried in the Valley of the Kings. You could go and perhaps see pyramids being constructed.

I'm sure my skills as a lawyer and with no mechanical aptitude whatsoever will be of tremendous use in whatever year you put me in. Hopefully I can bring an assistant -- someone that gives me at least some chance of surviving more than three days -- but assistant or not, I'm IN!

(more adventuresome than smart, at least here on Fantasy Island...)
