Despite what you might think, time travel isn’t just about hanging out with your teenage grandparents and knocking off would-be war criminals. There are some serious potential downsides to mucking about with the space-time continuum. You might be chased by a remorseless robot from the future, or be forced to experience your own death over and over. You might get stuck in a French bar with Woody Allen, or (horror of horrors) inadvertently end up seeing the movie ‘Jumper’ again.
But all of these pale into insignificance when compared with the ten mishaps on our list. So before you hop into that time machine, glowing vortex, souped-up phone booth, hot tub or other temporal warp device, take a lesson from these poor unfortunates.
