    Sprouts rock. I would use my time-machine to avoid Winter.

    Should be buried beneath rocks. Like the man says, they're awful on the inside and worse on the surface.

    I would use a time machine to go back and not have that argument with my other half that we had last night :(

    This implies he doesn't know that there are alternatives to boiling them and eating them whole. He's a philistine. :p

    As a mathematician I can say with authority that boiling a sprout does not negate its topology.

    I went for a second hand time machine when I bought it next year. They don't make them like they're going to anymore.

    Ha, no! The milk thing happened this morning and I just had to smile and say "oh well" when I realised there wasn't any because I didn't want another argument!

    Sprouts are icky.

    You could have used it to go back further to gather or fabricate evidence to prove your point in readiness for the argument that will take place tonight

    I would go back and remove the tissue that was in my gothic son's laundry-before I put the wash on.

    Quickest way to get a ride in a time machine?

    Bury an inscribed stone inside a sturdy earthenware pot in a place where it has a decent chance of being found in the future (ie a a reasonable distance away from the edge of a river bank or cliff). On the stone, inscribe the following: "If time travel has been discovered when you open this pot please come back to [insert tomorrow's date and your address] and take me away from all this. If it hasn't yet been discovered please re-bury the stone inside the pot."

    Worth a punt surely.

    What's wrong with his sleeves? Any real goth knows that green and black go together

    What if the sinking of the Titanic was actually caused by severe overcrowding caused by a load of people using a time machine to go back and try and stop it from sinking.

    Might explain why 500 of the lifeboat places were empty at launch.

    Or what about if loads of people tried to go back to kill Hitler, and then other people tried to go back to save him, and then whether Hitler lived or died actually became inconsequential because the fighting between the two sides started WW2 anyway.
