    Is there a limit on how many times and how often we could use it? (I'm presuming this would be a round trip, right :wink:)

    First, I would go as far back into the past as possible to see the beginning of everything.

    Then, I would go as far into the future as possible to see how it ends.

    And I would because I could. Also, because I'm curious.

    I would travel into the distant future, gather technology and bring it back and disperse it. I would then travel forward and examine the effects of the new tech and perhaps bring some more back - but to a time perhaps only 50 years from now, etc.

    Basically I would set about trying to manipulate our species' history into interstellar travel on a short time-frame.

    I would go back to the point when the inventor of the machine had the idea, and kill him. thus creating a paradox where I never went back, and saving the timeline from tampering.

    Nope. Come along and join the fun. I hope you're okay with our time travel machine being a robotic unicorn, though. :)

    what would you talk about?

    i'd go back about 20 years to talk to my grandmother. i think about my memories of her a lot, i feel connected to her somehow, and wonder what it would have been like to talk to her as an adult.

    I'd go back to about 1974 and meet with myself who is in Junior High, (Middle School) to impress upon me what truly is important in life. [​IMG]

    We would also discuss my education and what line of work to go into among many other things.

    Then I think we would go and get stoned together. [​IMG]
