    1) Work for countless hours and save up as much money as possible for 2 years
    2) Gamble it all on the exact date and reason for the death of King William III
    3) Retire with plentiful wenches and mead.

    Die.

    Your body has no natural resistance against the minor diseases from 300 years ago, so you'd almost immediately die of a virus the locals can shrug off. Also, the food would be packed with more bacteria and pathogens than your pansy modern FDA-approved body could handle, the water would give you cholera, and if you set foot within 50 yards of any town or city you'd go down with camp fever quicker than you could blink. That's assuming your funny clothes and accent don't get you immediately hanged for being a witch, or a heretic, or a spy for whatever country your country is at war with at the time.

    The second thing I'd do is start to decompose, I guess.

    Default creepy is good, right?

    1) Take passage on the first ship crossing the channel.
    2) Hope Harley isn't working in a field.

    Attempt to flee via Underground Railroad.

    If I fail, become enslaved and/or kill self.
    If I succeed, get married and have kids because that's what most women did back then.

    You know, I can't figure out how I'd do it, but I know the objective would be to establish credibility as a guy from the future who knows more stuff than everybody else without scaring the living shit out of everyone.

    If this worked, I'm sure I'd have no trouble getting laid. That might be weird though, because these would be people who are actually dead. And who don't shave their armpits. Or shower daily.
    When they said "sit down", I stood up.

    The dinosaurs were well dead by the 1700's.



    What would I do?
    Suffer under the British.... haha, no. I'd visit as many places as possible to see what they looked like back then compared to now. Very exciting.
