It's funny how most people say back to the past, I've asked and been asked this question many times. Why wouldn't more people want to go to the future? We know what happened in the past, if only vaguely. We have no idea what happens in the future, yet. Of course, I guess if you go back to the past then you know what happens in some future heh. Maybe more people are afraid of what they will find in the future because it's new and unknown and we fear what we don't understand. If it were up to me I would go to both, but I'd wanna see the future first.
I really have been asked this question many many times so I've had plenty of chance to think about it. Lol..
