u could do whatever u want... whether or not it ruins the future u cold still do it, now if the future doesn't change then either means the universe is paradox free or what u did and that u went back in time was meant to be, or u making a choice helped another universe to its future

You can't really say what you would want to do if you time travelled backwards as you would create a paradox when you did it and eliminated the desire to travel. You'd have to go back and wait till you were in the past before deciding what to do.

Time travel is obviously impossible. We know for a fact it wasn't possible in the past or the present. And it obviously will never be discovered in the future either. Surely anyone in the future is going to wish like hell they travel back to this point in history. Just before Dec 2012 and correct a few things, make some adjustments to the time line, so to speak.

I think you would be confused.
Not knowing where or when you were.
What would you do, what would your purpose be?
How could you not be noticed?
You would end up in the current time equivalent of a mental institution. People would think you are crazy man.
What if you went back in time and made a gambling bet on a sure winner with outrageous odds. Then instead of spending the money there, you put it somewhere so the current time " you" could retrieve it and become wealthy. You would never change the timeline from then until the "now". And the future really isn't details used yet so it doesn't matter anyways, due to the spontaneous ability to change ones mind.
On second thought, you winning all of that money just means that someone of the past does not get that cash. What if someone borrows money from the mob, and your bet somehow lowers his odds and he does not win enough to pay the mob back the promised amount. In turn the mob whacks the Guy and he just so turns out to be the Guy that saves your dad from a burning building when he was a baby...
My head hurts.....lol

If I could travel back in time I would go back to 1928, and pull out a cell phone while someone was filming the people walking by the premier of a Charlie Chaplin silent movie.
