Another poll found that 29 percent of all Americans wish that they could travel through time, and one in ten Americans wish they had their own time machine. That same survey found that people under the age of 50 are much more into the idea of time travel than those who are over 50 years of age. The idea of traveling through time has been made popular for decades by such shows as Dr. Who; Quantum Leap; Outlander; and others.
Interestingly, many time-traveling wannabees tend to say that they would go back in time and give advice to their younger self. Of course, the lesson in most time-travel stories is that the smallest changes yield unpredictable consequences -- sometimes making things in the present worse than they are. Even if time travel were possible, adapting to the future is easier than messing around with the past.
As Doc Brown told Marty McFly at the end of the Back to the Future trilogy, "Your future is whatever you make it, so make it a good one!"
