Ah HAH!!! I have longed for this day!

Beware Hilary. Your life, your sanity, perhaps your very existance is now in HER hands.

Go forth, Scarlet you adorable "Inadvertent Instrument of Divine Retribution" you!

$10 says that if kat finds out first she will wipe Hillary out of existence.

I'm wagering it'll look like an armillary sphere where Pip would step out into the middle of it and levitate while the girls work to zap him back in time.

But, considering how much overkill the girls put into their devices, he'll wind up 10,000 years in the past, yikes!

Maybe he'll run into those cute cave girls of the bear clan...

That's a good resolution to the grandfather paradox issue - literally whatever Pip does, he actually assures this outcome. Maybe, as he doesn't have the full story, he accidentally triggers Hillary's rivalry with Kit in a misguided attempt to make her a better person.

Pip gives Itty-bitty-Hillary the pink pony lunchbox, while the Squirelly Nutz Gang supply Kat's?

I would say either Pip creates the monster or he hides a camera in Hillary's bedroom. Or both.

Um, don't.

Reasons, Hitler was insane, but in all actuality a puppet being handled by his governing body, particularly Goebbels and Himmler. You erase both of those jokers and you'll get the equivalent of the old Prussian empire before WWI; a headless giant.

BUT if you insist, go back to 20 July, 1944 and ensure that Von Stauffenberg's briefcase does not get kicked under the table.

Then if Hitler does get erased, the world would have to deal with either Himmler, Gobbels, or worst case, Rommel.

Worst case, think of a Germany ran by Rommel....

Best case, leave the nutcase where he can do the most harm and wipe out his cronies.

This is relevant because if he goes back in time and un-fucks Hilary he'll just split the timeline. The side effect of this is that he won't return to a future he left, resulting in another version of himself. It wouldn't change the past for the pip time traveling but it would for the new timeline's pip.

This is also a fun concept because you can constantly change the future and bring the new versions of yourself into a different timeline and make INFINITE PIPS! Very Happy
Or what could be a dream for Art, Infinite Kats!

Or if you want to think of time as more linear, traveling into the past may cause the future instead of change it, somehow.
I love time travel and all the different ideas, shame we may never be able to do it like in Sci-Fi, but it's probably for the best.


Basically, time is sort of like this big ball of wibbly-wobbly...timey-wimey...stuff.

(I'm sorry, I just had to say that. Smile )

There's a joke here but I can't link to it since I'm a n00b. Google "Wikihistory Desmond Warzel".

Worse case scenario....Hilary gets a hold of the time machine.

@ Bunyip,

No the "worst-case scenario" is if the time machine works. Pip is smart enough to realise that a working time machine is a doomsday device in its own right, no matter who uses it.

@ BenRG...

I get what you mean...Pip Art and Kat are smart enough to not use a working time machine.
But given the lengths Hillary goes to control and manipulate people if she got ahold of it she would happily destroy all of reality if she thought she could gain from it.

A working time machine is a doomsady device....but someone willing to use it would be worse.

i think for the purpose of research time machine would be great would finally uncover all the great mysteries of the past. The hard part though is making sure everyone is responsible when they use it and does not try to do anything that would alter history. that is why it is so fatally dangerous.
