*Wretch*. I don't get how so many people can worship that decade.

From my perspective, nothing good occured in the eighties except for the NES, the Reagan Revolution, and SOME _meta_l bands.

Oh... And KISS was still cool after all of those years (don't want the Gene Simmons army stealing my kidneys while I sleep).

I think at least one cult would start up, believing that the world had actually ended, and that some supreme being had given them another chance to make things right. They would fervently believe that they were rolled back exactly twenty years for a reason, that they have to start changing the world immediately to avoid the apocalypse.

I anticipated that as well -- and a similar idea gets a brief mention in the stuff I haven't posted yet.

As always, you bring up plenty of good discussion fodder. Thankfully, I have neither the time nor the will to examine all the chaos the plot would produce. I have the feeling it would take a novel, or perhaps a series of novels, to do any justice to the questions that have been posed.

On a more entertaining note could you imagine the level of sports we'd be able to witness? College athletes and rookies with the experience of 15 - 20 year professional veterans. (But would Testaverde still insist on throwing deep versus Penn State? RUN THE BALL!) Professional drafts with no bad picks. Dan Marino with another 15 years to win a Super Bowl. Barry Sanders on a better team than Detroit so that he actually wants to keep playing and break the rushing record. Jerry Rice drafted by the Cleveland Browns? Michael Jordan drafted by the Clippers?

Ya gotta admit it'd be interesting.

PS Piper: Jack Chalker came up with a similiar idea in his 'Wonderland Gambit' novels. Virtual world gone bad where the participants no longer recalled the real world.
