If You Could Go Back In Time and Prevent the Premature Deaths of Six Artiistes Whom Would You Save?

And as many as you like about whom you agonised, and those whom you believe had no more to contribute.

AND - MORE IMPORTANT - I WAS ABLE TO MOAN ABOUT THE SODDING SCARF TWICE AND MAKE YUUUGE $$ FOR IT FROM MY FANS.

NoobRomeo - 13 Jan 2022 16:09:00 (#229 of 246)

YOU'VE OBVIOUSLY NEVER OWNED A SCARF SO YOU CAN'T UNDERSTAND THE PAIN.

TheFLUFFIESTKittenEvah - 13 Jan 2022 16:49:46 (#230 of 246)

True. I also haven't made a career out of dating people and then wailing about how badly they treated me by, uh, having their sisters not return a scarf, or something.

Good call -> Lowell George

Does anyone have any idea what those two old washer women Noob and Fluffy were prattling on about?

Lagopus - 13 Jan 2022 18:05:07 (#233 of 246)

I think it was scarves.

If you went back in time what makes you think you could stop a death (natural or not)? You'd be given a beating by security and left in the gutter.

TheFLUFFIESTKittenEvah - 13 Jan 2022 20:14:53 (#235 of 246)

That's what you think.

*taps nose*

From the fiction I've seen, every time you go back in time to change things with good intentions, you end up making things ten times worse.

steps out of time machine after returning to present. faintly heard from kitchen radio, announcer says, “next up, Ebony and Ivory by the great Hendrix and Lennon”.

Banks and Pratchett sorely missed. I thought that Ian M Banks in particular had scarcely begun. A devastating loss.

We had a thread here called "gasping for hydrogen" where we were anticipating what turned out to be his last book in the culture, The Hydrogen Sonata. And then he was gone. Bugger.

Tagyourit - 17 Mar 2022 06:54:44 (#245 of 246)

I choose to believe that his "death" was a Special Circumstances cover up as he was returned home after preparing Earth for joining The Culture.

angelico - 17 Mar 2022 06:57:34 (#246 of 246)

Heh! I'll choose that too, Tag!
