I'd like to be there the night Alois Hitler had too much to drink at the biergarten and went home to Klara with lust in his eye. I'd keep buying him booze until he was too drunk to perform so that they couldn't conceive little Adolf.

Do you realize the butterfly effect of that MIGHT mean that YOU were not to be conceived ?

Hah! The world should be so lucky.

But do YOU realise the the time travel paradox would mean that if I hadn't been conceived I wouldn't have been able to go back and get the geezer too drunk to dance?

Big fleas have little fleas
upon their backs to bite 'em;
the smaller fleas have lesser fleas,
and so ad infinitum.

I guess the FLEA effect beats the butterfluy effect and the paradox. Billy Joel was right. "Since the world was turnin' it was always burnin'."

Of course, the butterfly effect may not have applied in my case. After all, I was born in 1937 -- long after Hitler's conception but two years before WWII.

I'd go back to 1980 !! And  witness my self sneaking out the house as a toddler and running down the sidewalk with all my clothes off any chance I got and see the look on my parents face when they got the call from the neibours... That's my personal historic event but I've heard story so much I'd like to witness it played out :)
