While Mackenzie and I were on the road this weekend, we had a long discussion about the best pranks to pull if you had a time machine. Here were our top three:
3. Dress as a Native American and when Lewis and Clark come to your village, helpfully show them a large full-scale modern topographic map of America, conveniently printed on Tyvek that they can take with them.
2. Be sitting at the top of Mt. Everest munching on a PB&J when Sir Edmund Hilary and Tenzing Norgay arrive. Bonus points for having planted the flag of some tiny country like Liechtenstein prominently on the summit ahead of time.
3. After Neil Armstrong utters his famous "One small step for man..." speech, jump out from a crater wearing a green bug-eyed alien suit.
