What would you do if you had a Time Machine?

If I had a Time Machine then I would probably won't ever use it because it will affect my present if I tried to travel and altered my past and future. What I have now, I may not have now as you have to give sacrifices to achieve in life and you learn lessons when you make mistakes and improve further. At least that's my way of thinking.

So if you had a time machine then what you would do?

If you will try to change the past It will not effect your present It will create alternate timeline.
It will also explain Time Paradox.

Absolutely. Check out dark on Netflix if you want to get your mind blown by the whole time travel concept.

  • Go back in time 1 day and take all the closing stock prices with me, you could make billions in just a single day

  • Go back to the day twitter launched and reserve my 1 lettter username (might be an ass and just reserve all 23).

  • Also reserve the handle @israel (the state of Israel allegedly paid the owner of the handle 1 million dollars for it)

  • Go back to WW2 and kill hitler

Obviously go into the future to get an almanac of all the sports results for the next 100 years, go back to just after I left and use the book to make money gambling.

Just call me Biff.

Probably tell Justin Wong that Diago is going to parry his super combo if he goes for it.

Make good profile always since young.

Technically, that should be impossible, as if you haven't perceived, how did you learn?

Well, it cannot be done now. There are very few youngsters who utilize their time to learn more.

I would have picked up coding a lot sooner in life and pushed harder at it while I was younger.
