Oh, and by the way, that photo is wrong.  People have been photoshopping it and passing it around every so often.  The real date is October 21, 2015.

I would love to have been around during the filming of "Hard Days Night".  They looked like they had so much fun filming that…and they were all so young and gorgeous…heart  Oh yeah!

We realized this last night during our Back to the Future marathon!  If all it did was get us to watch it again, it was totally worth the "prank"…  because those movies are so effing awesome.

I would want to see them in Hamburg, pre Ringo. 

Same here. I'd go on a different night and we could compare notes: how many guitar solos in Roll Over Beethoven; how many fights there were; the many ways that the 5 (would need to see Stu playing) insulted the German audience. I'd need to go with either a couple of burly minders or in a impenetrable bubble to ensure i came out alive.

I'm sticking with these two. We will tell John, Paul, and/or George to look for the others of you who want to seem them at a later date.

If only one person can go to one event, then my second choice is to go to the recording sessions of "A Day In The Life" to find out who sang the aaahhhs. I would do that for all of you.

If I had a time machine, I'd go back to December 8, 1980, to the Dakota Apartment building at approximately 10:30 p.m., find Mark David Chapman and inject him with a fatal overdose of heroin, check his pulse to make sure, then get back in my time machine and come home.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 Good idea. You do that, and I'll go into the future, get some sort of cancer-curing miracle medicine, go back to whenever George was diagnosed with cancer, cure him, and come back to the present.

Very thorough…no loose ends.

Yes, I wouldn't have wanted (what's the proper grammatical tense for time-travel?) him to survive and likely try to kill some other time. 

On a general P.S. I think some people who seem rather strangely neutral about Chapman's crime (or subsume it under some general abstract pacifist principle they think is honoring John or something) don't factor in the fact that Chapman not only cut down Lennon and stopped him from possibly decades of life and artistic exploration, he also could have injured or killed passers-by.  But a stand on gun control and pacifism is more important, of course; we must have our priorities in life.

You could just chop his hands off, he doesn't have to die. You would also be punishing him for something he never did. Why not just take his gun and scare him off?

The premise is having a time machine, which means the benefit of hindsight.  Knowing what we know in their future, we know that he would likely try to kill again if given a chance.  If not John, someone else would be his victim, perhaps multiple victims.  (And a person crazy enough can still kill without hands.)

It would be hard for someone with no hands to kill. I find that very unlikely.

You could trip someone over and kick someone in the head until they were dead. Creep into their apartment and sit on them. Using your mouth pour poison into their food. Drop something on them from a great height thru pushing it over the edge. Blow them up. The options are numerous.

 

The old age time travel altering events problem returns as as far I can understand it if you stop John being killed then everything else changes so now would be different meaning you wouldn't be in the position you are in at the beginning to be able to alter the events that need to be altered to keep John alive. It becomes a whole loop that cannot be broken. A rip in the time and space continuum. Its why Meet The Robinson's makes no sense, irritated the living daylights out of me and kept me shouting at the tv for 70 minutes.

But why did you watch Meet The Robinsons? That's a little kid movie, and it has that terrible song Kids Of The Future in it by the Jo Bros. 

and I didn't say it was impossible to kill somebody if you have no hands, I said it would be harder and less likely.

I watched Meet The Robinson's one night when nothing else was on and fancied doing nothing. I wouldn't be able to pick out Kids Of The Future or the Jo Bros on a cd, never knew the song existed or its inclusion in the movie.

Only showing examples (or heldful suggestions).

Talk of no hands brings reminders of Monty Python's Black Night (warning: contains scenes of a violent nature).
