    If you could go back in time and give anybody (famous or just a person e.g Leper) something from modern times what would it be and why. Best not to go into the theoretical objects. It can also be anything ranging to medicine to a device (which hopefully is fully charged if needed) and maybe explain why you think that person would be better off (or worse off if you're going that way) with that thing. To give you an idea....

    I'd give Raphael the renaissance Artist a couple of bottles of cans of spray paint and tell him to go wild. I'd love to see what he would of come up with.

    or

    I'd give an umbrella to a medieval peasant living in Europe just cause i'm in a nice mood and giving them a day off getting feces poured on them while walking down the streets.

    Let your imaginations run wild.

    I'd give a light bulb to Thomas Edison. Wonder how that changes things.

    If you’d do that OP, there would be a high chance you would not exist right now and we wouldn’t be having this conversation

    I'd give Buckland's Megalosaurus a Nokia 3310 to eat to really confuse the early palaeontologists.
