benny the elephant entered a raffle for the prize of 1 MILLION POUNDS and he won but he wasnt aloud the money until he was 55 years old. benny the elephant is a scientist and once before he made a time machine so he used it to go into the future to when he was 55 years old. he saw himself with the money in his old wrinkly hands. he mugged himself and got back to his normal time.

he spent his money on a sweet shop and ate all the sweets in 5 minutes. but he felt bad because the money was a waste so he went back in time to stop himself buying the sweet shop and the went forward in time to stop himself from mugging his 55 year old self.

it was a success and he completely ignored the fact that he got smacked in the mouth for mugging himself. oh well maybe next time benny.

cracking story there .. i always like the Time Travel theme because when you strat to think about it, it *really* messes with your head. there are so many paradoxes involved. if you change anything past or present then, in theory, it would create cause and effect. for example, the character steals the money from himself in the future then spends it - therefore the "new" future would see the character without any money, so he *couldnt* be mugged for the money in the first place, as it has already been spent in the past..... er...

of course, if you *really* wanted to play, it could be suggested that time travel is really just a way of opening a doorway to an alternate universe/multiverse where the character *did* have money, doing the mugging and then coming back to the original universe..... *then* you would be into string theory and quantum physics :)

yeah, i think i might have looked just a bit *too* deep into this :)
