The Great Time-Travel Swindle.

I started Robot Marge's story line yesterday and had just completed "Judging Day" pt1 as I was about to turn in for the night.
A quick look at part 2 revealed a 4hr job to: "Send Robot Marge back in time 5 hrs".
Perfect! I thought, I'll put her on that and she'll have been finished an hour ago at which point I would've had decided to start her off on part 3, and she will have had been finished by this morning.
(Phew! These time-travel tense changes are exhausting.)
Imagine my surprise when I woke up this morning to find she'd only just finished part 2, What?
Clearly some kind of temporal anomaly has occurred during the night and I've woken up back in 2021, back when the whole world was still in lockdown.
Help me Professor Frink, I'm thoroughly confused..... And that's before you started talking.

    You have discovered the flaw in traveling back in time. She would/will pass herself going the other way in time which, according to Steven Hawking, means going back in time won’t work.
    I haven’t the time to explain this, look up his discussion on the subject.

  • Nice one @wadebear, you nearly caught me out, I was half way to flipping my screen over to read that but just stopped myself in time. 😀
    Guess I thought I was in "Expanse" for a moment.

    "All right, this next test may involve trace amounts of time travel. So, word of advice: If you see yourself on the testing track; don't make eye contact. Lab boys say that'll wipe out time. Entirely. Forwards and backwards. So, do both of yourselves a favor and let that handsome devil go about his business." ~ Cave Johnson Portal 2

    I didn’t figure it out.
    When @TheRealTiminator said about flipping it, I did flip it, and had to read @wadebear ‘s comment to understand, still started reading it just to make sure though.
    I wanted to do it yesterday but I will invariably do it tomorrow (ish).
