If you could do one totally irresponsible or even bad thing with absolutely no consequences, what would it be and why?

I would alter the course of known History with deliberation and malice aforethought. Without any regard for Temporal Law or the consequences on the Cosmos, I would intervene in events that, in my concerted opinion, should have ended entirely differently. Take your own Terran history, for example. I would literally change the course of the Titanic by means of a timely warning to Captain Smith that there were icebergs ahead. Think of all of the lives that could have been spared that night! No one need ever have died. Or what if a meteor had never hit Earth, setting in motion a chain reaction that would result in the demise of the dinosaurs? Not that I have any particular affinity for dinosaurs, other than they're quite fascinating creatures – from a distance. You see, it wasn't a meteor that created that cataclysm. It was a spaceship with a friend of mine trapped inside it. A young man I was responsible for. If I cared nothing for Temporal Law, I would return in the TARDIS and change that event in order to save Adric. And if I did, Earth as you know it would not exist. For all I know, the dinosaurs might be roaming there still. Not that I would care. The end would have justified the means.

But then, that would make me The Master.
