If you could choose to be a master (or mistress) of any skill in the world, which skill would you pick?
To be a world class goalkeeper. Or to be fluent in German and Russian too if I’m being greedy. Though with season 3 of The Bridge not coming on UK TV till spring 2016 I should pick Danish.
None of them are my real choice. My real choice is the ability to manipulate and travel through time. Then you could go back and change things in history. And no I don’t mean things like changing the results of Euro 2008 so Spain didn’t win it, or changing Joachim Löw being sent off in the Austria game. Not even Freiburg’s draw against Hannover before Christmas, or Stuttgart losing 1-0 to Chelsea in the European Cup Winner’s Cup final. Though I would be tempted to erase Mathias Ginter’s mistake against Frankfurt which resulted in Weidenfeller conceding an embarrassing goal.
I mean really important things, like killing Hitler, or even better stopping WW2 from happening at all. Better to prevent the Allies appeasement of Hitler and to prevent all of that bloodshed from taking place rather than revenge after the fact. I wonder if WW2 didn’t happen, how different the map of Europe would have looked. If WW2 had not happened, would that have prevented Stalin from gaining a foothold within Europe? I love historical alternate fiction, I wonder if there’s any books like that, something to add to my list.
