So imagine time travel to the future and past is possible.

You take out a life insurance policy on yourself.

You write a note saying that you are going to kill yourself
and have taken a life insurance policy out on yourself.

you go back in time.

There are now two of you. You and Future you.

Future you has killed your future self.

You go to the future and collect the life insurance on yourself.


If possible would this be legal?

Debate. :)

Should work if there are alternate time lines.

Wooster stole my line, but if this were the case. Wouldn't you be depriving your alternate self's family of you? It's just murder.

There are alternative time lines but only when convenient. :)

Well it's basically suicide if you eventually end up killing yourself on the same time line. After all, convience is not a luxury that is a given.

Gah, I really do hate this time travel business - it's probably one of the only things that makes my brain hurt...

That's why I post these. :cool:

Oh and since I posted it I don't need to actually debate the topic.

Go me. :)

It might work. By changing the past just by going there it could change time enough that the life insurance wouldn't work anymore. But you would also risk the chance of killing your younger you. But if you try inposibly hard you still would likely change the future. But more than less it probobly would't work.
