Here's a great idea. Sell everything, get a shitload of cash, and travel back to the 19'th century. Because dollars have gotten cheaper, I'd be rich, and I could patent several thing early like electricity and telephone. Then, I'd put that money into high yeild savings, repeat the process for years, puttign more in savings each time, then open my money and be the richest man on earth.
Eventually, you will stop to enjoy some of this money, won't you? Also, Jeno makes a good point, the currency is dated so you may have some trouble taking it back in time. However, you could buy gold today, take it back (a currency that travels well) and invest it in property then. Over time, your property would be worth a lot more than the gold you bought today. You could also invest in stocks that you KNOW did well in the recent past. of course, you'd have to liquidate before current crisis. The patent idea is pure evile

What were you two up to that you don't recognize the source of major scars, I wonder....

When I was 18, I went to a movie with my friend Penny (we saw Rocky 3, or was it Purple Rain LOL?). I had the overwhelming feeling that I was supposed to go and buy a lottery ticket at the booth outside the theatre. The feeling was so strong and persisted through the night but I didn't follow up on it and walked right past the tickets. It felt like I was actually choosing a path at that moment. I knew I would be OK, but somehow I made a choice right then and there.
I wonder about that day sometimes, since I get intuitions that are strangely accurate, but never a feeling to buy a ticket as strong as that one and I haven't had another feeling like that on the lottery since ... 24 years to be exact!
Wow, Peacebaby. Why do you think you decided not to buy the ticket? It must have been a difficult choice since you still remember. I wonder what you were thinking at the time that made you decide against it, were you skeptical or consciously decided that you didn't want to make a fortune that way.

I second that thought, particularly high school although I really enjoyed everything else I did instead as well.
That is rather harsh on yourself. While I agree about my own existence what you said is extreme. I mean, I don't know you, but I suppose if I did, I would grow rather attached to you and if you weren't in my life because you aborted yourself, I would feel a great loss. A profound loss, most likely.
