Inspired by iteach's time machine poll. Would you bet on sports games and play the lottery knowing the outcome and numbers if you went back in time?
You assume that you didn't change the future by going back and a completely deterministic universe. I'd bet but wouldn't bet everything on one game.
Ya have to pay for the time machine somehow, don't ya? I'd do an awful amount of good w/those winnings. The "Mystery Philanthropist!" strikes again!
Why wouldn't you. This is one of the reasons why I wish I could see 4 hours into the future.
Technically it's not being dishonest.. So yes
The devil on my shoulder says of course! The angel is telling me it might be unethical. Not sure who I would listen to.
Yes, wouldn't most people? Is there a downside I'm not thinking of?
Nope. Some folks might think its dishonest or cheating. Not me.
I'm with you!
Yep. But I wouldn't win billions in one shot or anything. I'd keep my winnings small enough to get by, but not extravagant. And I'd lose occasionally so nobody suspected anything.

No, but maybe I should. Haha
