    What if you had sunglasses that could time travel, you put them on and then can travel forward or backwards in time while wearing them. When you wear the sunglasses you see the light divide and you can step into another timeline completely.

    I would fight crime. I would tend to mostly go to the future or recent past (days, or weeks) as I wouldn't want to alter the past in such a way as to remove someone I know from existence. If I went to the far past I would want to witness major events. I would also want to know the price using this power/device has for the user. I would think if you spend a week in the past or future you age a week so every instance you time travel you add that age to yourself. This could cause you to age a lifetime's worth in a short period of normal time.

    They would have to be prescription time travel sunglasses. If I were to use ordinary time travel sunglasses, I'd never be able to tell when I was going. If you ever have had a stranger walk in on your dinner party, blink, then leave without explanation, it was probably me.

    The only time travel story I ever considered to have interesting potential is one about someone going back in time trying to prevent World War 2. He soon realizes that he needs to prevent World War 1 first but then ends up finding himself in a hopeless dead end because how could you possibly prevent a war that most people in power are looking forward to?

    I would go back to those moments in my life that have been most precious.

    Going forward would be interesting in a curiosity kind of way. But I'd have experiences there, at which point some would become precious, and I'd go back to visit those.

    I would pick a time and place I really liked and stay put. Possibly early or mid-Fifties California before the surf breaks were crowded. :)

    If I had time traveling sunglasses I would go back to high school and confess to the guy I liked, stuck with martial arts training instead of allowing myself to be bullied, get more help with math and English and I.T. In University, I would try harder to get my degree and maybe join the archery club like I wanted but I was too shy to go.

    After changing/trying out things for my personal gain, I would then try to stop big crimes from happening :(
