Default If I had a time machine I would...

A. Go back in time and shoot the fuckwit who invented welded plastic piping for domestic housing.
B. Shoot the fuckwit who thought it was a good idea to install the sodding stuff in my bathroom - er... that would be me.

If I had a time machine I would...

If you did A, there would no longer be any need for B, as the stuff wouldn't have been invented for the guy to install. Do B first.
