    Too sad or me. I have 2 sons. This is nightmare stuff for me. I won't be able to stop thinking about it. I'm sorry. I can't finish watching. I'll go find something else that's better, by DUST of course.

    his brother's death is what supposedly caused him to make a time machine. If he saves him, he would never have made the time machine, and thus never saved his brother. That's why there's no way out

    Shitty ending, wold of been better if he accepted it and stayed to visit and listen to his brother and then he didnt die. Moral of story being no matter how you try to change shit, it will still happen but if you just let life happen and live it, then it has a way of working itself out for the better... when you have no control over it, and just let it happen.

    But I guess you wanted the negative speculation ending instead...seems endings are always hard for people to conclude in any meaningful thoughtful way.

    "That's very progressive pronoun use."
    Yes would be too obvious and simple to use "it" for a thing like time.
