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.

The Harry Potter one was pretty interesting.

I think the reason that they dont use time turners for large past events is because they only work one way, so say if you used it to go back 2 months, you would be stuck in that time hiding until your future self goes to the past

didn't they say that they destroyed the timeturners in the harry potter books? i havent read them in a while, so i could be mistaken

@ #10: Taking a page from Doctor Who, it would be disastrous to cross your own timeline. Also you have to live through the time you went back to.   
So in effort the current you would cease to exist the moment your past self saw your current self (In this case you being Harry) because since that event hadn't happened in your original timeline, your timeline would change and the current you would be non-existent. Of course there is ways to make sure you (past) don't see yourself (current), but again you would have to live in hiding until the moment you (past) goes into the past. Effectively taking off that much time from your life.   
   
tl;dr Don't go back in time to change your own timeline

...i'll give this a try

1. maybe the whole "come to life" thing only works when no one is noticing (except for rare ocassions)

2. because there IS a chance that the child will grow up to look similar to their parent

3. there are other things you can roll cigs with, and water alone doesn't do much to clean dirt

**jorgefuber rolled a random image posted in comment #91 at lil wayne . facewall. ** I watched knocked up yesterday, what always confuses me is how Steve Carell is obviously a famous actor in their world (just like ours) because the main character woman interviews him for e! . but throughout the movie, we see actors from The Office as bouncers and gynecologists and what not. So in this world, does The Office just not exist? Or is Steve Carell on the office, but Darryl and Ryan are played by different actors? ??? pic probably unrelated, to lazy too pick one

#10: A. Deaths are fixed points in time and B. It creates paradoxes that makes preventing the death from happening unpredictable anyway.
If you really want a Harry Potter plot hole, there is this one: Hermione had a purse that was bottomless and weightless no matter how much was stored inside of it. At the beginning of the deathly hallows, she could have stowed Harry away and travel without any issue. George didn't have to lose his ear and Mad Eye didn't have to die.

Number 1: He doesn't want to blow his cover as a Space Ranger. The natives to the planet (humans) are very big compared to him and they could easily kill him if they ever found out he was invading Earth. The toys are more on his level, so he interacts with them.

There are two schools of thought concerning time travel. The more traditional approach would be that when a time traveler goes back, he can change the events of history. In this version of time travel, there never was a time traveler anywhere in history until the first one moved from his own time period. This would be exemplified in Back to the Future.

The second theory would be that the events of time cannot be changed. The time traveler tries to prevent or cause something, but inadvertently causes history to repeat itself in the exact same manner or fails to change anything at all. The time traveler was always present at this point in time, as well as their starting point.

The Time Turner is based on the second theory. Buckbeak was saved the first time around, but they had to go back in time to be there. The Potter's deaths were in itself proof that no one used a time turner to save them, or no one succeeded in saving them when they did use the time turner. Therefor, it would be useless to try to use the time turner to save them, as it would be theoretically impossible, even with magic.

There is a reason they let a young student use the thing. In all reality it's just a toy.

5: He never freaked out about her not being able to marry a prince. They even made plans to get married THEN he freaked out. Through the whole movie they kept mentioning that the only person the law said she COULD marry was a prince. I just honestly wonder if the person who wrote that even saw the movie.   
10. After they used the time traveling device they learned that they COULDN'T change the past, only realize how they altered things to make the reality that they already lived through.

because t-rex is awesome and he can do whatever the **** he wants

I always thought the T-rex pushed them off a cliff that was on the opposite side of the road as the T-rex enclosure. because i dont think think the camera ever shows that side, since its always focused on the rex.

Waterworld #3:
1. maybe the cigarettes were the reason it was valuable? Because they could use it to make more cigarettes? Or maybe the cigarette paper was too thin to be valuable, like how 24k jewelry is ******** of cash, but 10k is near nothing.
2. all of the water is saltwater, meaning that all freshwater sources on the planet have been eliminated. The only way they can get water is to:
-collect it after a storm
-recycle urine
-drink animal blood
