If I had a time machine I would visit these days where nature was still unspoiled by human being. Where men go out for fishing and hunting and women for berry picking and seed searching.

Hello
I don't understand when Carolina said "I like fish and I like chips, but not like that. It's so...heavy"
What does "heavy" mean in this curcumstance?

Hello trang avril,

'Heavy' in this context means fatty, very filling and possibly hard to finish. The opposite (light) would describe, for example, a salad.

I got it, thank you

I really want to see pete's watch ! Where can I find it ?

Hello Chickenteriyaki,

It sounds like a beautiful watch, doesn't it? Unfortunately, we don't have a picture of it. The description is quite detailed, however, so I'm sure you can imagine it.

Best wishes,

But Tess said she will put it (picture) up on the site. And in former episode she had promised lots of picture that will put on the site. I really want to know where the site is ?

Hi, everybody! If I had a time machine, I'd like to go to the begining of XX century. Because I'm interesting in cars I'd like to meet Henry Ford - one of the pioneers of automotive.

Hi everybody. I want to talk about "if I had a time machine, what time would I visit?"

If I had a time machine, I would like to visit the time of Sultan 2 th Abdülhamit. He is an Ottoman Sultan. He is the greatest sultan of the World. If I could talk to him, I'd say the names of the traitors inside. This would change the history of the world. Still, we should not forget that, maybe there is another man with a time machine waiting to disrupt my plans.

If had a time machine I would like to go ancient greek times.I would like to see a play in an antic theatre for example Sofokles or others.I would meet Aristo,Socrates,Platon.I think nature was beautiful and excellent in that time.
