Murder. If you kill your PAST self it would be suicide as you yourself would cease to exist, hence killing yourself.

Well I'd say it would come down to intentions and situation. Say you go back in time, break into your own house and are shot dead in the dark by your past self. That's not really murder, but it could easily be suicide. On the other hand if you purposely kill your future elfins some kind of climatic gun fight where you've both got opposite intentions then its murder. Of course it gets more complicated when we move into killing your past self, where depending on how time travel works it could be murder (independent timeliness, stranded future self) or suicide(unraveling timeliness)

Personally I prefer rubber time. go back, kill Hitler and some other vegetarian asshat will fail out of art school and try to conquer the world by killing everyone he doesn't like. You can change the details but not the big picture.

That's pretty simple.

Tomorrow I won't be the man I used to be.

If I kill Tomorrow Ourchair, then that's murder.

It's murder.

The moment you travel in time, you create a whole new alternate universe. So you can theoretically kill yourself in the past, and still live, cause you didn't kill you actual self, merely this new timeline's version of yourself.

Dig?

but what if the Lost/fate theory of time travel is true?

it's both, It's murdercide.
wouldn't that word technically mean "the killing of murder"? like pesticide is the killing of pests, genocide is the killing of an entire race (greek - genos = race), suicide is the killing of oneself (greek sui = "of oneself")

I assume their time travel theory is that if you try to kill your future self it should take 6 years and then turn out you were dead all along and then you run away with as much money as you can put into your trousers.

This makes me ponder my idea of Power Girl making out with Supergirl. Is it incest or masturbation.

I'll be in my bunk.

It makes me angry when people say that they were. But then I push that anger away and just LOL at their stupidity.

It makes me angry that the writers lied that they had a plan for their show when they made it up as they went along, but then I push that anger away and just LOL at their stupidity.
