You've got a time machine, I've got a gun. What the hell. Let's kill Hitler!
Oldiron_79: stuffy: I'd just ring the door bell as Hitlers dad is about to boink his mom.Hitler never born, and no one the wiser.Go back to shortly before the Hitlers meet and became a couple and seduce Hitler's mom
bratface: 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.Why?
DubtodaIll: It does make sense though, you kill Hitler (before he comes to power) and America doesn't have the Baby Boom.
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.
symptomoftheuniverse: Go back and find the very first critter climbing from the primordial ooze.. and squish it.
timujin: You know who else killed Hitler?
brantgoose: I always thought it stood for Herschel.
DubtodaIll: Sorta, they ended up like 10 ft from where they started. Even if you jumped by a day you'd be off the planet.
Serious Black: Now that you've changed things, time travel wasn't invented in your lifetime, so either you vanish and the whole thing is undone, or your time machine does. So now you're stranded in wartime Berlin. And you've just killed the beloved leader of one of the most powerful military machines in history.Doc Brown says that killing Hitler would have a ripple effect throughout time, so you could get back to your relative present before you lost the time machine to non-existence.
toraque: Meh. If I had a time machine, I'd use it to go back in time and loan it to my previous self, who would figure out how it works and patent it. Then I'd return to the present, where I'd be insanely rich from selling time machines, and someone else would have killed Hitler and had to deal with all the paradoxes and crap.The only problem would be if someone bought a time machine from me for the express purpose of preceding my patent, so I'd have to have a no-prior-invention-ganking clause in the TOS.
DubtodaIll: Red Dwarf was the best dramatic representation of time travel and its potential ramifications.
And do you know who else had a time machine?
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.
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.
