    Eep, time to start my physics project ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Reading all this reminded me I need to get started on it. (To bad I couldn’t make a time machine, and we could put all this to rest 8) )

    So, why not steal our lego collections from ourselves, and have twice the Legos! And when we steal them from ourselves in the future, we will have the set we stole from ourselves in the past.

    Ah, but this will cause a feedback loop which will destroy the fabric of time + space, thus:
    When you steal your own Lego, you will then later have twice the amount, granted. But then, when you come to the future to steal it you will steal that double amount, and then end up with 4 times the Lego… but then you’d have stolen that amount, + thus actually have EIGHT times the Lego! And so on until the entire universe is solidly filled with LEGO and all other matter is extinguished!

    BUT!
    you would eventually have to stop,because (judging by the fact that your time travel machine isnt the size of the universe) you would run out of room to put all the lego you took from the future.

    also another theory on that:
    That wouldent happen.You would take that lego,so when you got to the time that you took the lego,your lego would be taken.Then taken again.and again and so on………….
    so,you’d just have no lego at all when you take it!!!

    That, is why you only take one set! That way, nothing can happen. (Geez, I just thought about it, and it confused me. I just got home late and Im going to bed, and I have to goto work tommorow :?)

    I would go back in time to when the first bank opened and start a savings account(5% intrest ๐Ÿ˜ฎ )…..then go to the year 999999999……..use the money that has been compounded for a few mellinia…….AND BUY A STAR CRUISER…..A GUNDAM and a SPACE FIGHTER…….AND A PLANET………POSSIBLY the moon…..and then i would take all of that back to this time and era……AND BECOME FILTHY RICH…(and hire scientists who could build a time machine that can go 1,000,000,000 years +/- ……..and sell that to someone…….get them rich……create a company better than microslave……AND LIVE FOR A LOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG TIME………..(nothin major …maybe a few melliniums….)…

    There is a cool part in an adventure computer game I played (escape from monkey island) where you have to navigate in the ‘Mysts o’ time marsh’. Basicly in every different place you go in the marsh the time changes. In one scene you see yourself on the other side of a fence(actually the RPG person called Guybrush Threewood: the game is a comedy) and you help yourself by giving yourself a bunch of stuff that will help open the gate. Later you find yourself on the other side of the game with your ‘old’ self in the place where you once had been. You then have to give yourself what he you need to open the gate. If you say the wrong thing or give yourself something out of order the you’ve broken the fabric of time and you have to start all over again.
    I hope somebody was able to follow that ๐Ÿ˜€

    If it was ever going to work, surely we would already know about it.

    Unless there’s a government cover-up

    Wait a second..how could you go backward in time with something bigger than your time machine? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    If you try to place it on something like a cog,it’ll snap between the two.Then the Machine can’t go forward anymore.It’ll malfunction untill the counter reaches 999,999,999.All the digits will start going forward or backward,or a combination.If the time sheild fails to get to it’s regular position,the machine will explode.That means anything in the blast radius will be warped to that time.
    OR..
    The thing stuck between the cogs will be pushed out.But if this happens,the counter may be off a couple of years.If the machine says it this year but the counter says it 999,999,999 ,they will keep “fighting” until somethin goes BOOM.
