a few problems with your theory.... time travel back in time beyond the point when the machine was turned on is thus far mathematicaly/physicaly impossible.... another point made by another poster that said it would cause problems in the time line is also it seems nothing to worry about as it is now believed that time branches like a tree instead of flowing uni-directionaly like a river so if you do go back you arent actually acting in your own time line but another possible time line that you did not initially experience.... its a deep subject with lots of great physics and maths i suggest you do a lil research on it its rather enjoyable
the second and third videos are the best but watch all three to get a better picture from the real whackos to the serious physics.... ron mallet has the best theories imo hope you enjoy
and to the poster who says because we havent had visitors from the future it may disprove time travel but (there is always a but) all that really proves is if there are time travelers they arent interfearing directly or arent popping into our timeline from my time is like a tree example or and this is probably imo the most likely.... this is the first go round the future is out there waiting for us but we havent gotten there yet its weird to think about but lots of fun

On a side note, i once heard that Albert Einstein not only figured out how to time travel but actually built a machine capable of it. He then decided that the human race was not ready yet and traveled forward to give it to us later. Perhaps we are still not ready but this is more convincing to me than anything John Titor said!

No one's shown up yet, I don't think you guys are trying hard enough
I've convinced myself that if I heard a knock at the door and I opened it to find myself looking back at me, I wouldn't totally lose my mind
Just because in the future, I figure that would be on my mind. If meeting myself would cause me to freak the hell out, so now, knowing that I won't, maybe I'm more likely to visit myself...
I also wrote down a note to myself in a book I write in, a reminder to pass this on to my kids when I have them sometime in the future... as long as I don't lose it at some point, or forget, I will tell them to remember as well.
