19. If time machines were real, and you could choose just one - to travel forward or backward - which would you select and why? Forward – backward is in the history books – the future is unknown.

20. If you could pick one person, dead or alive, and ask them just one question that they had to answer honestly, who would you pick and what would you ask? Jesus – why do bad things happen to good people?
