Two girls commit suicide over missing remote/attempt to time travel
 
12-year-old girls hoping to 'time travel' commit suicide in Fujian : Shanghaiist

Two 12-year-old girls in Zhangzhou, Fujian province have committed suicide, one of whom allegedly died for time-travel, local media reports. Xiaohua, one of the two girls, apparently was motivated to take her own life after being distraught over losing a remote control for the rolling door of her house, and planned her suicide on March 1st.
Her best friend Xiaomei decided to die together with her, leaving a suicide note which reads:

Quote:

My good sister has lost the key and was afraid of being scolded. She wants to die, and I decided to die together with her. Please don't worry too much. We weren't born at the same time on the same day, but we want to [die] at the same time on the same day. In my life, I have two secret wishes. One is to time-travel back to Qing Dynasty and shoot a film with the emperor, and the other is to travel to outer space.
The two girls committed suicide by jumping into a nearby pool and died before their families found them. more...
This is were the many worlds interpretation and quantum suicide come into play. We, or perhaps just me, are in the universe in which both of those girls died. But from their point of view, only one of them died, or maybe both of them lived. What I'm trying to say is that I have no idea what I'm trying to say. CHINA!

A recent survey of students at a Fujian middle school found that nearly 90% of the students believe time-travel is possible.

"Isn't what's shown on TV all true?" one pupil even asked.
Uhmm...what are they teaching kids over there?


And seriously, what did the parents do to that little girl that she'd rather commit suicide than admit an honest mistake to them?

Have you ever actually attempted to time travel? Time travel by suicide is actually very plausible.

nope, you can only time-travel when you can catch up with the speed of light

Technically you can sort of time-travel by just walking or getting further away from earth.
You can't actually go back in time, just that time moves slower for you.

and then when you travel at the speed of light, time completely stops
