What would time travel really be used for?
 
Shutting off Scooter Brauns internet during the entirety of 2008.

Through judicious abuse of Quantum Duplication, create an alternate universe where you single-handily built the Egyptian Pyramids.

Turn the Flying Spagetti Monster into an actual, institutionally recognized religion.

Bring about world peace led by the Flower and Kitten lovers Republic of North Korea.

Find out what would happen if Chuck Norris and Bruce Lee really did battle each other.

Create a world where the Rambo movies were made in the 50's and watch the conspiracy theories explode.

Convince the world you're a wizard.

I essentially believe it could only be used to re-enact the plot of Terra Nova, the Back to the Future Franchise and possibly Terminator.

Stock market manipulation, obviously.

And buying coke in the 1880s when it was cheap and legal.

Taking the meaning of the phrase "spreading your genes" to a whole new level.

As an excuse to murder each other. Like everything humans do.

Winning the Lottery would be the first use. Second use would be going to the future to acquire future technology like that TNG episode.

If time travel was possible or ends up being possible it most likely be used to,
A: used to make sure history that is being taught is historically correct;
B: used by some mad man who terminates all origins of life;
C: once discovered it won't be used since it's unstable/highly dangerous to use.

Well, nothing at all. Why? The act of time travelling will loop around and undo the reason you went back in the first place, meaning you never time travelled at all.

Going to the future, coming back and spoiling many movies.


Go back and invest in Google, and Apple.

Create Google

claim gold mines.

Go back and make a country after me.

Go to the Americas before 1492 with advance technology to spice things up.

Take over Rome with a handgun.

Put my name on the moon.
