Default A What If Question

After watching my favorite SG episode I came up with a question. Here is the plot of the episode which I got this from.

The team meets up on a planet, a man is missing with a time machine that puts you in a time loop, now only you and your best friend get stuck in this time loop. Every so often it resets (it did it every 10 hours) now you and your friend are the only one who remembers the last loop to everyone else its completely normal because they do not reliease that they are in one.

Now a question in the episode was brought up, if your in a time loop, it repeats itself every 10 hours on the dot, and you go back to where you were at 10 hours before that moment, you could do anything you wanted too, and not have to worry about the negative sideaffects considering everything you broke, destoryed, broke, or w/e you did in the next time lop never happened.

Of course the team was able to break this time loop, for the sake of the question lets say you can break it at your will.

What would you do? Lets say your in a time loop with your best friend you can do w/e you want in 12 hours, and you can repeat it as often as you'd like. You will never get in trouble for a long ammount of time (at least less then 12 hours) me I would do the following.

1. Go on a high speed chase (be awesome eh)
2. Fly a plane (i have a airport near me i'd steal it and learn how to fly it through trail and error)
3. Knock out a few poeple which I really don't like (prob do this several times over)
4. Study and learn about somthing new.
5. Learn a new skill
6. Do a bunch of other crazy, extermely reckless things which normally i'd never dare to do because of teh pure stupidty of doing it due to the negative sideaffects which will follow after i'm done.


Remember whatever work you physically do such as writing, and stuff will be gone, however what you learn will be with you. You also never age regradless of how long the time loop is.

Sooner or later i'd turn it off, because it'd get really boring you could only do so much with 12 hours. But think of the fun you could have

lmfao, did you ever see that movie called "Groundhog Day" with Bill Murray? its the same exact concept except for 24 hours he awakes on the same day.
he kills himself, steal the groundhog and drives off a quary, and does all this crazy stuff. lol, great movie.

idk what i would do. after a couple of years i would get bored.
1. steal a lambrogini and run it into a the ocean on a ramp doing around a buck 90.
2. ummmm, kill myself just for the hell of it.
3. reliev myself in the middle of the street in NYC.
4.Play ding-dong ditch

Yes, you cannot die, if kill yourself for "shits and giggles" you will come back alive when the time loop repeats itself.

So if you ever had the thought of "Erm I wonder what taking a shotgun to my back of my head would feel like thought" and figured its not worth doing since its sideaffects (mainly dieing) you could do it in this time period and come back alive when the time loop repeats itself. You could even kill other poeple if you really wanted too, they'd never know it and they would be back too.

Remember you only have 12 hours, i'd prob raid microsoft several times, maybe even take hostage of CNN and moon the world (litterally), or maybe take over the BBC and moon the world that way too

I'd fly back to the states (10 hour flight) land in DC, and attempt to take over the white house for shits and giggles then of course prob die and get the crap beat out of me, but heh if I do it withonly 30 mins left it can't be too bad.

My fav part of teh epsidoe was where Jack and Teal'c went golfing with the stargate and the the general went "JACK WHAT THE HELL DO YOU THINK YOUR DOING!" and Jack goes "Ah come on general right in the middle of my backswing!"

Or when Jack was golfing, and he went "teal'c how far your reckon that planet is" Teal'c went "I believe it to be several billion light years" Jack went "Thats gotta be a record"

For those of you that don't watch the TV series the Stargate is the device that makes a worm hole so you can travel to other worlds that are inhabitable and explore them.

Could you just imagine that, hitting a golf ball and making it go several billion light years in a few seconds
