I thought of the grandfather parodox before I heard about it and it helps me too feel smart when I'm acting dumb. The parodox states that you can not go back in time and kill your granfather because then you would never have been born and never have gone back in time. My original question was if I overslept and work called to tell me to travel to work at a speed above the speed of light and go back in time so I would go back in time and arrive to work on time wouldn't they have no reason to call me and tell me I was late? I don't really think it has a viable answer but any comments might be ammusing
