There's quite a few big problems with the old time travel theory in my opinion.
Say you were to go back 1000 years in the past. You aren't just going back into the past of the earth, you're going back into the past of the universe. Therefore you're going back 1000 years into the past of other planets too (that may have advanced civilisations living on them - who knows).
You see the way I see it is that during time travel you are in control of time, and hence, the universe (The two are the one and the same thing in my opinion, its like a huge incomprehensible clock - The Mayans did a pretty good job at figuring that one out).
The universe ain't something that can be controlled.
Just my 2 cents anyway
I was think that if you could time travel you would be in your own universe so to speak.

As for destroying the time machine when it all becomes too much, I suppose that if the past were flexible this would be a valid possibility. Remember kids, when a genie grants you three wishes, save the last one for "I wish I had never found this accursed lamp!!!"

A really weird thing to think about is, ok when you die, you're dead, and gone and no one really knows what happens but lets just say you slip into eternal darkness or your in heaven or whatever. So someone goes back in time to when you are alive.. do you get sucked outta heaven and go back into your body to live in the past or what? Or do you stay dead and a different 'you' somehow is in your past body, but then it truly wouldn't be the you. Haha because there would be 2 of you. I don't know it's weird.
