Pragmatic Time Traveler Abattoir

Lure meddling would-be modifiers of history to their doom

This invention is an advertised time traveler destination, with all the amenities, as described by [Blumster], except with the addition of the (non-advertised) rotating blades.

This would require multiple locations, as the time travelers will eventually catch on that a particular "destination" is one that their fellow travelers never return from.

It should serve to at least reduce the numbers of meddlesome history changers and stock market cheaters.

       I like it. The only problem is...all the time travelers I know return instantly.

       Who are you to judge the future motives of time travelers? I, for one, welcome our futuristic overlords.

       Keep the same destination. If no-one ever comes back it must be really nice there.
