Go back in time and learn how to invent things take them to the begging of time and teach primitive man how to use it and how it works so the present would be super advanced. Screw up history, prevent the gun from being invented so everyone still fights wars with swords. Wait until people perfected there inventions kill and replace them and claim I invented it until I invented everything ever! Find out what really happened at Roswell just the typical stuff I guess...

i have such a long list it's not even funny. There are at least a dozen people i would save. Bonzo, Cobain, Hendrix, Bon Scott, Lincoln, Leonidas, ect... I'd buy the first 71 chevelle to ever roll of the line. I'd invest heavily in Enron just to sell out at the last minute. whisper in that snipers ear that it is ok to kill that german soldier, even though he's wounded (hitler). and deliver a shipment of AK 47's to the guys on bunker hill. then i'd start having fun...

I'd trade my money for old money.. Go back in time and trade that money for gold (or land)... Go into the future and trade that gold (or land) into money. Convert that money into present money and return to present. I bet my money'll increase. Inflation is a wonder if you have a time machine...

or get 800 dollars in gold, go back to 1835. buy half of california. sell it off piece by piece in 1850. you'll get your money back a thousandfold. then go buy somewhere like manhattan in 1700. Sell it off piece by piece and you'd make SOO much money. and you can do that over and over... 
 
or, be the guy that discovers gold in California, and mine the living hell out of it before anyone knows it's even there. one guy during the first months of the gold rush pulled 180,000 dollars in gold in three days. adjusted for inflation that's like 3.4 million dollars...

Is that really the way inflation works, if you had 180,000 dollars back then it would be more like 10 bucks today, because money is worth less now, or maybe I am confusing it with buying power, I admit I did not do well in those classes.
Anyways I am slow so I will move on, I like these ideas, land is the way to go, If my great grandfather could have held on to all his land he was forced to sell in the early 1900s we could sell it now for absurd amounts of money!!

that's really how it works. money today is worth less, so having any money then would be exponentially higher today. the value of the US dollar has fallen by a factor of 21 since the gold rush, so having one dollar then is the equivalent of having 21 dollars today. so if you want to know how much something was worth, just double the price and add a zero. what's surprising is how much relative inflation there was back in the goldrush, a single egg could run you up to five dollars. yeah, a hundred bucks for an egg.... and we think 4 dollars for gas is bad...
