Set the time machine two years into the past.

Start lifting weights.

Crush your past self with superior physical strength.

The screwdriver is in an infinite loop. The scientist grunts when she sees it. She can deduce how many loops have happened, roughly, by the blood which dries and then gets a new layer every 10 minutes. She knows she's just at the beginning.


The metal, though no doubt stronger and more durable than flesh, is not more durable than time itself, and it will wear down imperceptibly with each murder. Observing the wear on the screwdriver could tell the scientist how many thousands of loops she has seen the murderer go through, even though each time it is the first time she sees it.


At some point, the screwdriver is so worn it is no longer capable of being…

I love this sort of thing: where does the screwdriver come from?

I prefer By His Bootstraps by Robert A. Heinlein, and is from 1941, so like 3 years older
