and kill hitler as there was no boogieman named hitler (outside of some baby that died long ago)...so you wouldn't go back and kill him..which means
he would be born and do his thing, which means you would go back and kill him, which means you wouldn't, etc etc etc..infinite loop

Christ supposedly resurrecting the dead, etc. Woodstock maybe
