Just to be clear, do we arrive naked or do we have everything we are currently wearing and carrying?
Assuming you mean 1 AD or 1 BC, I would have less than 28 years to get to Jerusalem to witness one of the two greatest events in human history or die trying. First I would need to travel to Alaska and cross over to Asia hopefully without getting myself killed or enslaved by the various native tribes. After traveling to a more civilized part of the world, it would probably help being a 6’6” giant among the predominantly shorter people of that time. I’d bet I could work as a servant/slave to some rich guy just due to the novelty of that while I learn a language used at the time. Then I could begin travel to the Roman Empire where it would take me a bit of time to learn Greek, Latin, and/or Aramaic while probably working as a servant/slave again. After I get Greek or Latin down, then I can start heading to Jerusalem.
And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him.
As for being a slave, I guess it depends on your ingenuity.If you know enough about modern technology or even enough to build yourself a plate armor and a voice amplifier with a potato battery. You might be able to convince people that youre the messenger from god or something.
Thats actually the point of this thread. How much you know and how much would you be willing to risk (your actions might change history). If you play your cards right, you might end up a god but if you do it wrong you will be a slave or dead.
Unless I can treat my Type I Diabetes without insulin. I'd probably just go ahead and die :/ Might as well be a death sentence!
First I'd find a leaf and some cordage to fashion myself something to keep my junk in check, then I'd make it my life's mission to ensure religion never gets as much of a hold on the world as it currently has.
the logistics of this leave me w/ some questions like would i magically be transported to some part of the world with people. nobody would be speaking english so that rather limits any interaction w/ the people of the era. if you just appeared infront of a crowd of people in modern clothes and speaking a strange language you'd probably be mistaken for some kind of witch or demon.
i feel like this magical trip would just end in death and not accomplishing anything.
I would drown myself the first chance I got.
That is if I don't get executed for being some demon like above poster mentioned.
Hmm 0 A.D here in America? Maybe ill try to advance Native American technology so we can one day cross the ocean to Europe and wipe them out before they wipe us out. Would be interesting to see how the world turn out that way.
Depeneding on the calandar you use there is no 0 A.D. so Ill use 1 B.C. and Since I live in America Id run around having the Native peoples create massive works that leads people in the future to believe ancient aliens visited us. Id also try to die in a place my body would be discovered in future to mess with people even more.
There is no 0 AD. The 0 wasn't around yet when the Julian calendar was made.
'Twas a cutlass swipe or an ounce of lead
Or a yawing hole in a battered head
And the scuppers clogged with rotting red
And there they lay I damn me eyes
All lookouts clapped on Paradise
All souls bound just contrarywise, yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!
i'd be lost since my current location was not founded before the 19th century and my house was build in in the late sixties.
