Seems to me that $20M is a little steep for a time machine. Can I get a cheaper "SE" version without all the bells and whistles? And I don't want to go too far into time in either direction. I don't care about dinosaurs or Jesus.
I would like an autographed "John Titor," though.

You go back in time and buy shares of Microsoft off of some guy and return to the future to find that your investment caused a chain of events by which the time machine never got invented....thus you are not able to travel back in time to make the investment and it turns out that nothing changes and you end up with a time machine that works but doesn't.
Each instance that you travel back in time to try another change, you find that you create another chain of events that prevents the time machine from being invented thus negating all that you thought you did.
The end result is that the machine doesn't work. Use of the time machine to travel back in time creates a series of events that prevents it from ever being invented in the first place.
