set the date to the time when Nikolai Tesla was in his lab and ask him for his death ray schematics
It occurs to you to use the time machine to glean Tesla of whatever information you can.
Alas, the machine only allows you to travel backward or forward a month. Furthermore, your supply of fissionable materials can only produce the energy required for perhaps a decade's worth of jumps. Theoretically, you could travel as far as ten years back using successive jumps, then steal some warheads or scrape some radium off of old toothpaste, and continue on, but calibrating it so that you don't end up inside a wall after a long series of jumps is another matter entirely.
travel back to the time when that guy you hate walked by a huge mud pit and push him in
You think back.
Ah, yes. There's this annoying asshole. Craig.
The other day he was standing by a window.
Just outside and down one story, however, is this huge puddle.
You set the watch to take you thirty-four hours in the past, in the same room where you stand.
It's a fairly routine 30 March.
You can't wait to get home and finish that time machine of yours.
There's Craig, the annoying asshole. Man, wouldn't it be nice to just push him out the window?
push him, your making a time machine, no one can stop you now.
You push him out the window and are then arrested.
Your time machine is not done! How can you escape without a time machine?
kill yourself to avoid punishment or go down fighting
actually no run home and quickly finish your time machine damn it!
You quickly finish what you're doing and head straight home to your basement.
There's nothing there! It's gone!
It couldn't have been stolen. All that was there was parts for your time machine, and those weren't too valuable. No one knew about the machine. It was a complete secret and you don't recall talking to yourself over the matter, either.
You check your watch. Your time machine was so close to being finished, it only lacked the fuel and a spring!
Crikes! It's like a day ahead!
open up your watch to see whats wrong with it.
You open the watch, and find it to be completely assembled.
