Say you were dropped off in somewhere in Europe a thousand years ago (give or take) by a time machine.
You have no way of getting back to the present time.
You have nothing with you but the clothes on your back.

Keep in mind this is the time period just before the Crusades, the 'Viking Age.' The Holy Roman Empire is in full swing, and gunpowder has just been invented in China.


What can you do to that would help you survive/prosper?

I can do long multiplication in my head. Seriously.

And I can run a 100 meters in 11 seconds, that'd be faster than those guys I think.

I seem to attract girls.
Which is annoying, cos I'm a girl and I like cock.

I know that there's an entire other half of the world that I would have some king pay me thousands of gold (which back then would be a shit ton) to discover, and be rollin' in 11th Century bitches.

I would have the knowledge of the future.

I wouldn't want to mess with the time-space continuum, so I would use the knowledge I had to put myself in a place where I could flourish best.

I'm persuasive, I have knowledge of technology that the people of that time wouldn't have even dreamed of, and I have the will to survive.


I'd say that just about ANYONE from this time would do well in the past.

Singing ability would impress church bitches and i'd work my way up to be the new pope.
And then wreck havoc from the inside bringing an end to the religious influence of the vatican and bringing rise to a new religion of tree worshipers.

I'm taller and have better teeth than everyone is 1000AD plus I can speak Latin. I would fashion myself as God. I either will get killed (very likely). Or because of my devine looks (for the time 6ft tall people with good with don't just happen), I will be like a demi-god, or something.
#23
I'm with the one guy who said he'd be a prophet. In 1012 years people will worry deeply about the world ending, but they should fear not, for I have seen the day that people will say the world ends, and nothing will happen.
And if it does end in 2012, what do I have to lose?

I can headbutt a pig to death. This would help in say, Viking raids where the livestock is causing a fuss, but is too valuable to abandon, so I can turn it into less annoying deadstock without spilling too much of its blood and ruining the meat.

I'm fairly handy with a knife, and locks were simple enough to pick, so Thief, I guess. That or I could be a troubadour. I think I could make a fair killing in a big city.

I don't have many useful skills. I'm not very smart or athletic but what I have is a chart, and with this chart I could jump start humanity. Take a look.

There is a war going on for your mind.

If you are thinking, you are winning.

i'm alright at hiding, i'm pretty good stealing, and i know things that people in 1000AD couldn't even be able to begin to comprehend. but i don't know how to hunt, i'm not what you'd call "strong" or a "good fighter", i'm pretty damn unmotivated, and i can't function properly without pills. so i'm pretty much screwed for the time being
#35
Well since it's what I got on me now I'd have a vibration tongue ring which they would probably think I'm some kind of wizard or something after I got with my first wench but I could persuade them otherwise withe some lute shreddage. Or I could be an artist or prophet or carpenter. Or be a viking and have some fun.

Let's see:

- I can hunt using a bow and arrow. I can also prepare dead carcasses for meals.

- I can read and write, and I can read and write in Latin too. So I could read manuscripts of the time.

- I can play the lute (badly). So I could be a musician.
