Top Ten Things to Do If You Could Time Travel to the 1970s

I'm not going to ask why you are in the 70s, but assuming you have seen this list, you will be able to prevent mistakes of the 70s and future decades. This is a list of things to do if you have somehow been magically or scientifically been transported to the 70s.

The Top Ten

1 See Star Wars In Theatres

For fun, call it by the name that it is known as now: "A New Hope."

When people look at you funny, point out to them, that in the opening credits it is called "A New Hope." - clusium

I would be a regular at the cinema... - DieGedankenSindFrei

2 Prevent the Three Mile Island Disaster
3 Meet Richard Nixon
4 See the Soviet-Afghan War
5 Save Gerald Ford from Being Shot

He wasn't shot.

6 Prevent Disco from Happening

Ironically, the vast majority of "pop" today is just disco by another name.
All EDM, all Trance, a lot of Hip-Hop, and around 80-percent of Pop are just Disco, but with more explicit lyrics than in the 70's.

7 Have Disco Flourish

9 Become college buddies with Bill Gates and Steve Jobs
