Writer's Block: Tales from the rift @ 02:07 pm

Right now I am annoyingly: okay okay

If you could travel back in time and ask any deceased political figure (famous or infamous) a single question, who would you choose, and what would you ask?
That would be hard to decide - although people in America today almost constantly argue about the stances that the Founding Fathers would have taken on particular issues, and I would like to settle one of those issues by asking George Washington about it, it would be hard to pick which issue to ask him about.

One of the problems of "stances that the Founding Fathers would have taken on particular issues" is which one you ask, they had different ideas among them selves back then.

Good point. I guess even if I could single out just one issue to ask them about, I wouldn't be able to get their majority opinion because I could only ask one of them.

Interesting question. I'd pick Anne Boleyn, but I don't know what I would ask her.

At least it would probably make a lot more sense than my answer to this question.

Yours made sense, I thought it was a good answer.

I thought it made sense, too, but it turns out it didn't make enough sense. Read foundunicorn's comment and my reply to it.

Nah, it made plenty of sense. I have no idea what I would ask Anne Boleyn, I'd just want to get to know her and see what she was really like. Weird.
