This has nothing to do with doesn't answer the question but ngl I forgot the Dakotas existed is that bad

yes
Edit: I got 44/40 on that quiz in 4/7 minutes


I got 46/50- I missed Mississippi and New Jersey, which doesn't bother me that much, but I'm disappointed that I missed Louisiana (I clicked Alabama instead, smh) and Colorado (I clicked New Mexico).

50/50, easy clap

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.

You have questions in here and I'm have so little to do I might as well respond even though they are rhetorical.

Preventing the European take over of America.

How do you know there's a preferable alternative to the way history did happen, and what would that be?

This wouldn't be about what is better overall, which is very subjective, but is more about if this specific goal could be accomplished. For the purpose of the question, the preferable outcome is for Europe to not take over America.

You can't control every little thing throughout the last 10,000 years single-handedly, and if you could, would that be right?

You wouldn't be able to control everything, even with your immortality you can only be in so many places at once. Plus you have no other special powers other than immortality. As for right or not, that is subjective.

If you had 10,000 years to prepare, then you'd probably be able to defeat any invasion, but in doing so pre-colonial America would probably become a colonial power itself.

There is no final victory, as there is no final defeat. There is just the same battle to be fought, over and over again. So toughen up, bloody toughen up.” - Tony Benn

Can't see and don't care about a poll. I'm just curious how old every one is.

I suppose I'm quite young, at the ripe old age of 18 this year - 17 if we are going by birthdays.

Fixing a hole where the rain gets in during my spare time.

Fixing a hole in the ocean if I'm daring enough.

Doesn't really stop my wandering mind.

I just really like repairing stuff

How does that work? Do you turn 1 when you're born, not 0?

For anyone wondering. Dingle Lad's post here (#5844) is in reference to a thread that was discussing and polling forum user's ages. As this can be covered in here I have moved his and all replies so far (up to #5853) over. I don't believe in editing posts others write so have not.

Isn't there a thread specifically about ages?

Oh there is, it was just locked. Due to that policy.

Anyway, I'm six years old and was born November 1st.

Ah no, I mean that I am at the age of 18 if we are counting the age of an invididual by year. However, as I haven't reached my birthday yet, I am at the age of 17 if we are counting it by the birthdate of an invididual.
