    i feel like iif a time traveller far from the future came and brought technology to any point in the past after 1900 he'd be better received than if he traveled to a time before 1900

    I think the best would be to travel to a time where people had already started telling stories about time travel. I guess stories where people fall asleep for a long time, then wake up, count as time travel. How long have people been telling this? I mean Rip Van Winkle is pretty old.

    but what about the salem witch trials? and that time period you'd have to consider that if you traveled to certain time periods people would accuse you of being a witch and burn you at the stake because you can turn your urine into candy bars.

    Rip Van Winkle was written after the Salem Witch Trials, so no fear there. As for turning urine into candy bars, I have no such power, and may either be disgusted or delighted to learn of such abilities.

    i was refering to a time traveler that is more in the future than us. I have no clue what technologies there are but i'm sure if i put it on the internet someone will begin the process of figuring out how to so. i like to consider it my contribution to the future.

    I'd be most interested if they figured out a way to make round hot dogs that fit on a hamburger bun.

    You inspired me to look that up. Turns out sleep-related time travel a la Rip van Winkel has been around for a very long time (definitely over 1000 years). There is also a French novel that's similar to Van Winkel but 50 years older
    Time machines are a product of the industrial age (which I find highly interesting, technology replaces magic) and started appearing in literature shortly before Wells popapularized the concept.
