What would you do if you had a Time Machine?

If I had a Time Machine then I would probably won't ever use it because it will affect my present if I tried to travel and altered my past and future. What I have now, I may not have now as you have to give sacrifices to achieve in life and you learn lessons when you make mistakes and improve further. At least that's my way of thinking.

So if you had a time machine then what you would do?

If you will try to change the past It will not effect your present It will create alternate timeline.
It will also explain Time Paradox.

Absolutely. Check out dark on Netflix if you want to get your mind blown by the whole time travel concept.

  • Go back in time 1 day and take all the closing stock prices with me, you could make billions in just a single day

  • Go back to the day twitter launched and reserve my 1 lettter username (might be an ass and just reserve all 23).

  • Also reserve the handle @israel (the state of Israel allegedly paid the owner of the handle 1 million dollars for it)

  • Go back to WW2 and kill hitler

Obviously go into the future to get an almanac of all the sports results for the next 100 years, go back to just after I left and use the book to make money gambling.

Just call me Biff.

With the power of the Time Machine, I envision the Hà family, my family, rising to unparalleled prominence and shaping the course of history. Instead of remaining an obscure family in North Vietnam, the Hà family will become renowned as the architects of civilizations, the guardians of knowledge, and the catalysts of progress.

In this alternate timeline, the Hà family will use their influence and wisdom to guide humanity towards greatness. Rather than resorting to violence or manipulation, we will employ a different approach. Each generation of the Hà family will select a member to serve as a Mentor/Helper, working alongside influential figures throughout history. These individuals will acknowledge the invaluable contributions of the Hà family, recognizing them as the driving force behind their achievements. It will be a recurring sentiment in the memoirs of these historical figures: "I owe everything to my mentor, the esteemed Hà family. They are the true architects of greatness, and I am merely the instrument through which their vision is realized."

While the Hà family will accumulate numerous accomplishments and earn the respect of many, our aspirations extend beyond personal achievements. Throughout time, humanity has held a deep reverence and fear of the gods. In our quest for transcendence, the Hà family will dare to challenge and triumph over the divine beings, becoming paragons of wisdom and strength that surpass even the gods themselves.

Across diverse pantheons, from the Hindu Triad to the Greek deities Chaos & Nyx, from Norse mythological figures Ymir and Surtr to Egyptian deity Ptha-Nun, and even the supreme ruler of Christianity, God, the Hà family will emerge victorious. Yet, rather than seek dominance or annihilation, we will demonstrate mercy and compassion towards the defeated gods. Some of these divine beings will become students of the Hà family, humbly receiving their teachings and guidance. Athena, the Hindu Triad, Buddha for wisdom and knowledge, Prometheus and Jesus, along with his father, for love and compassion towards humanity, Morai for the arts of prophecy, Hecate for the methods of witchcraft, Hephaestus and Cyclops for craftsmanship, and Ares for the art of war—all will benefit from the profound tutelage provided by the Hà family.

In this extraordinary narrative of history and myth, the Ha family's scale and influence will be unmatched. Their legacy will endure as the founders and destroyers of nations, surpassing the gods themselves. They will be known as the miracle-makers, the protectors of mankind, and the wise leaders who govern the three realms—heaven, hell, and the mortal world. The Ha family will be revered as the custodians of prosperity, the creators of laws, the embodiment of wisdom across the realms, and the epitome of respectability.

Probably tell Justin Wong that Diago is going to parry his super combo if he goes for it.

Make good profile always since young.

Technically, that should be impossible, as if you haven't perceived, how did you learn?

Well, it cannot be done now. There are very few youngsters who utilize their time to learn more.

I would have picked up coding a lot sooner in life and pushed harder at it while I was younger.
