On this sunny Friday afternoon, The New York Times Magazine inexplicably decided to poll its readers on whether or not they would go back and kill Hitler as a baby, given the option (worst "Back to the Future" brand tie-in ever).

Ultimately, 42 percent of readers said they would, 30 percent said they wouldn't, and 28 percent said they weren't sure. Meanwhile, a seeming 100 percent of Twitter users found the whole proposition ridiculous, and chimed in with droll 140-character rebuttals to that effect. Take a look!
