And you, what would you do if you could go back in time? Amanda, 33: "I'd go back to June 12th, 2009, and this time, I'd agree to go out with Paul. At the time, I didn't know what I know now, and I wouldn't make the same mistake again." Bruno, 19: "I'd retake the Baccaulaureat exam that I failed last June. Now that I know the answers, I should get better marks!" Sébastien, 26: "I'd be tempted to try and change History, by going to 1889 for example, the year when Hitler was born, but if science-fiction has taught us anything, it's that the consequences would probably be worse!"

Getting that for you now...
