Makes it a little hard in the Harry Potter one when you cant be seen by anyone, so....in addition to not being seen by the Past Harry as well as the person you're saving, you have to stop them from being killed without them noticing.

I always thought Hermione gave it back to dumbledore before they went home. judging how hard it was for them to do it once, if they did use the time-turner in the rest of the series, the zombie apocolapse would have happened early.

I know the Time-Turner shouldn't/couldn't be used for all the reasons, but your logic is flawed.
They.
Have.
The.
Invisibility.
Cloak.

That gremlins one isn't a plot hole, it's like you showing up 4 hours late to work and telling your boss it's 8 Am somewhere. It's relative to the amount of sunlight OP.

Harry Potter:
1) Time Paradox and all of that debate.
2) Maybe it only works for about an hour or so? Like it can't go further back than that?

The time turner doesn't "change" time technically. Everything that happens when Harry and Hermione use the time turner was always going to happen in some roundabout way or in other words the time turner shows how things actually happened when you might have thought they happened differently. i.e. Harry and the gang though Buckbeak was executed when in reality they actually saved him and the axe they saw brought down was aimed at a pumpkin.

Hmmm...never thought of that. So, you're suggesting that the time travel in Harry Potter works more like it did in 12 Monkeys?
User avatar #371 to #369 - projectcrypt (01/31/2013) [-]
I'm sorry I haven't seen 12 Monkeys, but that's the way I always thought it worked.
#407 to #364 - anon (01/31/2013) [-]
Yes. But the timeline can be changed it's just that once it is people dont remember it before it was changed. They can pick up the time turner anytime and use it.

#2. She watched her infant son grow up her whole life. It's far better explained in a Terry Pratchett book called 'Night Watch,' but basically it would take a genius of detachment and observation to permit the possibility that the person you watched grow up and develop your entire life is identical to one that you met in the past, before the current person was even around.

Thumb up for the Night Watch reference, We need a book/Terry Pratchett fad one day. But too lazy to actually log on

Aladdin: He didn't want to keep the genie to become a prince again, he didn't think he could pull it off by himself, and wanted to keep his last wish just in case something went wrong and he needed it. and He didn't worry about marrying Jasmine, he worried about lying to her for the rest of their life and her finding out and hating him for it.

#2- Maybe Marty's mom forgot what he looked like. He was the third kid in the family, and it had been like 30 years since she was in high school.   
   
#3- Why does the Kevin Costner movie suck dick? Because of Kevin Costner. The gods hate him and so do I.   
   
#6 The internet, most likely. Plus, who cares, I just want Amanda Seyfried to touch my wiener.    
   
#7- Because you don't 			****		 with Pat Morita.   
   
#10- Because it's Harry Potter, not the next installment of Back to the Future.   
   
#11- Maybe there was a cliff we didn't see. Stop ruining my childhood!

For the Mean Girls thing, they knew Cady didn't make the book on her own, but no one else would admit to it, so she got all of the blame.

You can't use the time-turner to go back in time and alter things in the past.
Did you read the book?

Cough* Buckbeak. *cough
#185 to #136 - anon (01/31/2013) [-]
Buckbeak never died ******* . In the movie when it shows the axeman swinging his axe down and crows flying away, he's actually splitting a big ol' pumpkin.

Buckbeak never died?
#94 - fuckilostmyaccount (01/30/2013) [-]
#10 is not possible. in book 3, when harry and hermione went back in time, they did not intervene with anything their past selves did. they saved buck beak when their past selves were walking near the whomping willow and did not get to witness any of what has happened to buckbeak. after whatever happened with the dementor, they woke up and all that they knew was that buckbeak was killed and sirius was trapped, which led dumbledore to walked in to the Hospital Wing and tell them to go back in time. their past body still had one purpose- to travel back in time, because they believe that sirius is captured. Now say my father was killed by a bus at 8am. At 10am i went back in time to 8am and stopped him from getting hit by a bus. Now that my dad is not dead, my past body has no reason to travel back in time anymore, which lead to two of me existing at the same time, and you can't have that. Time travel logic. Sorry for the long post
#151 to #94 - aiicii (01/30/2013) [-]
otherwise good, except you can have two of you existing at the same time
User avatar #99 to #94 - mylazy (01/30/2013) [-]
So put simply, we are already feeling the effects of any time travel that has been done. We can't go back and change anything, because everything has already been changed and we are just going back and doing the things that have already happened (assuming we could go back in time)
#105 to #99 - fuckilostmyaccount (01/30/2013) [-]
had to read that twice, lol. i mean it is said that the universe will do anything to stop a paradox from happening, like you traveling back in time to stop your father from marrying your mother. but if we assume that time traveling is possible, then we are feeling the effects of the time travels that has occurred- just as you've said. but those that has traveled back in time must be really careful. on the other hand, if someone wanted to **** up and change history, we might have felt that as well (i.e: WW2, G.W Bush voted as president-TWICE)
User avatar #206 to #105 - mylazy (01/31/2013) [-]
Bush being voted as president wasn't that bad...I mean I am told the reason he was elected was because the alternative was worse than him (not old enough to remember). Choosing the lesser of two evils is a worthy decision I think.

for harry potter ibelive it can only go back a week in time not years or decades
User avatar #380 to #376 - fishtacos (01/31/2013) [-]
Actually, it's because they a)didn't need or have one in the fourth book, and b) it says in the sixth book that the entire Ministry stock of time turners was destroyed by Harry and co. fighting the Death Eaters in the department of mysteries. finally, with Cedric's Death: How do you plan to prevent that without meeting yourself and/or making Cedric realize there's two Harries, and thus going stark raving mad? Yeah, didn't think so.
User avatar #396 to #380 - beamersmack **User deleted account** (01/31/2013) [-]
Ok, so I mostly agree with this. But you know, I don't think a ******* wizard would get that tripped out by telling him the words 'time travel"
User avatar #460 to #396 - fishtacos (02/01/2013) [-]
Good point. But, Time Turner rules state that you cannot meet yourself, or the fabric will slip and everything could possibly be destroyed. The only chances they would have of saving Cedric would also involve Harry meeting himself.
