lennavan: No, I'd probably spend some time trying to identify the key players in continuing various religions and stopping them in some manner. Religion is the basis for pretty much all of the bad things in our world.Of course, without all of the killing in the name of religion, we'd have overpopulation issues.
lewismarktwo: TomD9938: Assuming that a dead Hitler = no WWII, I probably am never born.My grandfathers work schedule increased drastically in the late 30s due to the country gearing up for war (he worked in the aviation industry), and his window for plowing my grandma and conceiving my mom in late 1939, was made much narrower as a result.Probably a different son or daughter would have been born to them around that time, but it wouldn't have been me.So thanks Hitler!No the way to stop WW2 would be to lessen the punishment exacted on Germany after 'The Great War' aka WW1.
Skyd1v: fickenchucker: I'd go back to June 1st, 1983, the day before my sister was killed, and warn her not to go home that night./fark Hitler--I had no-one from my family die during WWII.There is enough there in one sentence to give a person chills./Please tell me that is a reference to something I am missing.
DubtodaIll: It does make sense though, you kill Hitler (before he comes to power) and America doesn't have the Baby Boom.
studebaker hoch: You can't take "your time" with you to another time any more than you can take "your space" to another location.You leave one, and go to the other.In our case, the only way we have to know what space we're in is our eyes. The only way to know what time we're in is our memory.If you travel distance, your eyes see the new space and can longer see where you were.If you travel time, your memories are now in that time frame, and you can't remember any other timeline.If you travel in space, you get "there".If you travel in time, you get "then".
derio42: No one has mentioned wikihistory yet? I am disappoint.
studebaker hoch: Spatial correlation wouldn't be a problem because time and space are linked.People only think it's a problem because they're looking from the wrong coordinate system.If you time travel back to 1930's Boston, you'll be in Boston, not space. You would also have no idea you had time-traveled to get there.
DubtodaIll: Something I've never seen anyone incorporate in to time travel is spatial location. Say you have a machine that can travel time. It had better be able to handle the vacuum of space because if you go back a few hundred years and you'll be millions of miles away from Earth if you arrive at the same spot from which you leave.

ArcadianRefugee: Nonsense. There are far crueler men in history. Like the asshole who invented the tie. First trip I make, I'm gonna choke him to death with his prototype.
The Southern Dandy: Look. I've been thinking about this. Nobody will ever time travel (in a significant way). If they had, we would already know.
Stephen_Falken: If all we're allowed to do is kill someone, I'd go back to Persia in 630 BC and kill Zoroaster instead.
Cthulhu_is_my_homeboy: You need Hitler to bleed the Soviets dry and make sure Stalin doesn't take over the world in the 1940s.You need Stalin to make sure Trotskyism doesn't cause a worldwide communist revolution in the 1930s.Why you need Trotsky, I don't know, but the alternative version of the 1920s has to be worse.
And do you know who else had a time machine?
You've got a time machine, I've got a gun. What the hell. Let's kill Hitler!
