    Only if there's a table of contents accurate to infinity. Only either one?

      Past and then buy a boatload of Apple, Google, IBM, Amazon and Tesla stock. I'd also save Hendrix's, Morrison's, Joplin's and Lennon's life.

        Yep.


        I have a buddy that was buying Wal Mart Stock back in the 80's at a like a buck or so a share. I said what do you want that crap for, get some decent stocks from like IBM, MS or GE.

        I'm not sure if he is a multi millionaire, but either choose was a pretty damn good investment. Plus the splits and all.

        My dad lives pretty well on stocks and dividends, plus a fat ass pension from GE. He was younger than I am right now when he stopped working.



        The way I'm going I'm in for a few more years of work, and then i'll probably collect cans and bottles for the returns. Early bird gets the work, so they say. I used to getting up early too.

          Far enough in the future that I wouldn't have to live on Earth.

            I'd pick the past because I'm always traveling to the future every day anyway. I don't really want to know what happens.
            It's not about money or popularity , although some money would be nice.

                Smart

                $$$$ isn't everything, many folks that have won big lottery hits in the passed have lived to regret it. I'm just sayin.

                I'd take my chances too.

                I couldn't even not just show up for work, I have a pension coming and health insurance. 90 mofo days I'd have to go in. However I have like 65 weeks ( yes weeks) of sick time tucked away. I could call in for a long time.

                  Money is only important if you don't have enough. Once you are comfortable, most people don't see the point in trying to get more.

                        Yet people with more than most of us can imagine are constantly trying to get more. Go figure.

                              Howdy folks. Just an observation from iggy. I see people here where I live chase money and have way more than they need and most are dysfunctional families. Some of them are scary. Regardless, Id go back in time and fix **************** as long as I didnt mess up the continum too badly...
