If you could go back in time for only 4 hours, where/when would you go?

Scenario:

You discover a time machine that can take you back in time, only backwards, only one single time and only for 4 hours.

Any time in this planets history, any place on the planet.

Rules:

There is only one rule; You can't come back. After 4 hours, you die and vanish along with everything you carried with you. There will be zero evidence left of your existence (even if you carved the future into the side of a mountain, it too would disappear)

You can tell anyone any thing you wish about the future. (Do not assume they will believe you and burn you at the stake instead).

You can dress in period, or wear modern clothing, you can even bring a laptop or smartphone, although of course, you could only show recordings etc, but not contact the present.

You could bring one small modern weapon and kill whoever you wish, but you are not immune from being killed in less than the 4 hours you were allotted by your target or his/her guards etc.

What specific place and time would you go to?

Could you change the future if you went to the right time and place with only 4 hours to accomplish your goal?

Would you go the the continental congress in Philly?

Would you kill Hitler?

Would you visit Einstein or Ben Franklin? Ceaser or Jesus?

Would you try and stop JFK's assassination?

Would you try and stop 9/11? WW1? WW2?

How would you change the future for the betterment of mankind in only 4 hours?

Or would you just go back to a significant event in time and try to find the truth of exactly what happened, just for your own curiosity?

Could be an interesting and lively topic.

Me? I might go all the way back to the very beginning of mankind and kill the proverbial Adam and Eve and do the planet a huge favor.

4 hours isn't very long!

"There is only one rule; You can't come back. After 4 hours, you die and vanish along with everything you carried with you. There will be zero evidence left of your existence "

With the 'rule' above since you die in 4 hours, the only thing worth while is to change, do away with a tyrant or cure a lost loved one. When first reading thought, Yeah, go back and when 1st husband asked me to marry him, would say NO this time........but I'd only have 4 hours of not having that memory so not worth it.... lol

Deekey

Go back in time?

I can't even catch up to it,
besides I already lived it and I still wouldn't have a damn penny to scratch together...

Father - Husband - Son - Spirit - Consciousness

One additional suggestion

You could even bring some modern medicine and save the life of a certain person if you wished.

One day, I'm gonna' change my name to Dale Lee Paul
