Tell Me Something Tuesday is a weekly discussion post here on Rainy Day Ramblings where I discuss a wide range of topics from books to blogging. Weigh in and join the conversation by adding your thoughts in the comments. If you want to do your own post, grab the question and answer it on your blog.

I am continuing with the Halloween theme posts this week. Last week it was all about paranormal gifts. This week let’s talk super powers:
Would you rather time travel or teleport?
Ahh.... this one is actually a tough choice for me. If I could time travel, I would so love to go back in time and see my parents and grandparents when they were younger. Wouldn’t you like to catch a glimpse of your mom and dad when they were in their teens, twenties? Maybe attend their wedding? I would love to see what they were like, and what the world was like. The same goes for my grandparents who lived through the Great Depression and World War II. So much history to see.
I would also like to check out some other stuff, and perhaps sneak a peek into the future. Most of all, if I could go back in time to some of those great days in my memories, just to relive a day with my grandparents or my mom, I would so do it. However, time travel comes with all sorts of problems, and I would hate to mess up the space time continuum or something like that. I think good old Doc Brown explains it best:
So maybe time travel isn’t such a good idea... but still...
That leaves me teleporting. I love the idea of being able to teleport anywhere in the world in the blink of an eye. In the middle of winter when it is raining and the skies are continually gray and cloudy, a quick trip to the beach would do wonders for my soul. Not to mention, trips to see friends and family without having to deal with the hassle of airports, security checks and the length of time it takes to get there. Plus, there isn’t a chance of messing up the space time continuum and ruining the world with teleporting. So even though I am tempted with the whole time travel idea, I think if I had to pick and choose, teleporting is the way to go. Anything to avoid travel lines!
What about you all, would you time travel or teleport?
Next week’s question:
What books would you recommend for Halloween reading?
