a-hard-days-night-ringo-8Dragonite's cool and all, but Drampa's where it's at.

It may look soft and cute, but one of its Pokédex entries is absolutely insane:

"If a child it has made friends with is bullied, Drampa will find the bully's house and burn it to the ground."

That seems like a bit of a disproportionate punishment. It also affects the kid's family, who presumably did nothing wrong. ahdn_paul_01

I asked this in the discord a couple hours ago but I wonder how the general BB population would answer

Here's the situation, you are teleported to Pierre, South Dakota except it is 10,000 years in he past.

You are immortal and you know the language of the local tribe. You have the resources available to you in the New World.

Could you prevent the European take over of America? And if so how would you go about this?

My answer is the same as it was a couple of hours ago 😉

I wouldn't stop it. It'd be inevitable. If Spain didn't get America, UK would. If they didn't, France would. Et cetera, et cetera, et cetera.

Depends. Can I bring some smallpox vaccines with me? Blueprints for tanks? If not I don't think I could do much-- knowledge of the future wouldn't be enough unless I had technical knowledge as well.

I don't think I would. It's a bit like playing God – you think you know what will happen because you're from the future, and you think you know how to prevent something bad, but there's no way one person could know or be capable of affecting everything that would produce the desired outcome – and even if you did, what would be the desired outcome? How do you know there's a preferable alternative to the way history did happen, and what would that be? You can't control every little thing throughout the last 10,000 years single-handedly, and if you could, would that be right? I don't think so.

While it's definitely true that the white settlers treated the natives like shit, the real bad guy was the monarchy. If Britain had a democracy instead of a monarchy, the Europeans would've never felt the need to run to America, so if i was able to do so, i would fly to London and give all the pheasants guns to take down the monarchy and establish a democracy.

I'm immortal so I don't care what happens to everyone else. Plus, if I did stop them I would never be able to meet all my fave people (my great grandparents, grandparents and parents) when they're born because they wouldn't be born. And then me when I'm born. Also, I always really wished I could have known my great-great-great grandma because I've heard a lot of good things about her.
