    I would go and meet my great grandfather. And get him to change his travel schedule. so he and my great grandmother could be happy together for a long time.

    I would go back in time and meet my dad, tell him to go to the hospital and do the heart bypass fast.

    I would go back in time to see my real mother.
    She gave birth to me and died.

    If the universe ended would time end or would empty space still count as 'something' and be bound by time?...

    Another trick question? You're really on a roll, dude. Or should I be asking, what are you rolling? :D

    What was my last trick question?...lol

    I was serious about his one, I guess another way of asking is, does time exist with no one around to gauge it?...

    Could a time traveler travel so far into the future of past to where there is nothing but empty space, would time even exist then?...Could a time traveler travel so far ahead or behind that he or she inadvertently leaves the boundaries of time and space?...

    I watched a Doctor Who episode where his equipment malfunctioned and the Tardis took the Doctor a trillion trillion years into the future...All the stars were almost gone, almost all life was gone, could he have traveled further into the future than that to where there's nothing left?...Unfortunately for him that far point into the future is where his arch enemy and friend the Master was hiding away...

    They dealt with that on an episode of Red Dwarf once. They went back in time to before the explosion happened. They thought the machine was broken because they were in exactly the same spot. In other words they went back in time but they were still in the middle of nowhere.

    my take on that is that reality is a construct of consciousness.
    the same sort of question would be to ask if something like a math equation or a work of art has meaning if nothing ever sees it.

    Perhaps over trillions and trillions of years black holes will gobble up most matter and each other, unless there is a mechanism in place that replenishes, then perhaps all collapsing on itself and recreating a big bang, life starts over...Would the counter of time continue to tick or does the ticker get reset with the birth of a new universe?...
