Time machines don't make sense. Why not? Step in the machine, press a button, go to a different time. Suppose it works like that. What happens if you put one machine inside another and have the outer one go back while the inner one goes forward. You end up with two devices, one of which is supposed to be in the other. But which can't be because it's not at the same time. Stupid. Well, okay, what if the outer machine creates it's own internal time while it's traveling? Then, the inner machine only travels in internal time. Suppose you put a person in each of those machines. The outer person doesn't age while he goes back in time and the inner person doesn't age going forward. Then the inner one gets out. Now they're from different times and traveled different ways, but now share space, time, and age. If that's the HRKKG Dammit. They always have an aneurysm before I hit the really weird stuff.
