SFSignal.com today posted a link to a story on the Marginal Revolution blog which answers a question about what would happen if you suddenly time-traveled back to 1000 AD Europe. Read that article HERE.
I think this is far too softball a question. What if you got suddenly transported to somewhere else on Earth? Why do those pesky time travel machines always send you to Europe? Don’t we already have like a thousand answers to that question already?
I mean, just read Mark Twain’s A Connecticut Yankee In King Arthur’s Court for one!
Why not go for something or somewhere we are less familiar with here?
