If there were actually only one electron, weaving forward and backwards through time, what would happen if you could somehow catch this 'tron and not let anyone else use it? Would the universe cease to exist? Would it unravel, starting at the point you got greedy and spreading through time until nothing had never existed in the first place? Of course, that the universe seems to still exist suggests that doing such a thing might be impossible (because given the amount of past and future the universe is likely to have, pretty much anything that can be done, will be done).
Still, were I a more motivated mad scientist I would build a doomsday device around this concept and threaten to activate it unless my demands were met:
"Bow to my will, or I will not only destroy the universe, but I will arrange it so the universe never existed in the first place! Not only will you never use an electron again... things will change so you never had the use of any electrons... ...what? You're not scared? Look, all your stuff is made up of electrons. No, you won't still have fond memories of your stuff, becuase it never would have existed in the first place. Yes... your new iPod is made up of electrons too. Think about it: I will destroy your iPod before it was even made! So you'd better... <whatever>"
Mind you, demonstrating the effectiveness of such a device would be hard, since it too would cease to exist as soon as it was activated, and would never have existed in the first place. Hey... wait a second, if the device never existed then it would never have been activated, and thus the device would still exist... so it could then be activated... at which point it would cease to exist... oh, nevermind...
