    Yeah, I suppose you could do that, but I'm pretty sure this plan worked out splendidly.

    I'd go back to 2001 and invest in Apple and Google.

    THEN RULE THE WORLD!!!

    You guys are still thinking too small. With a time traveling Delorean, you could be the new Messiah! You could shape the world however you wish. YOU. WILL. BECOME. A. GOD!

    That's a little too late to invest in Apple and Google.

    Yeah, I'd travel back in time to the middle east and travel the land, claiming my mother was a virgin and doing basic magic tricks that 5 year olds would understand these days, but spooked people out back then, then i'd pretend to die on a cross, use a basic lever to open the stone to my crypt thing and then i would take off in my flying car toward the heavens, making it back here.

    I think some people wrote a book about me, i'm not sure.


    I'm fine with 10,000,000 from my 250GTO, but i suppose i could be greedy and get 15,000,000 for it, go back to August 19, 2004, invest 5mil in Google, then travel to October 2017, grab some of the latest hardware (Intels new 16 core CPU, a couple paper-thin 70" motion sensing, voice activated screens, a few laptops, etc).
    I would then live awesomely.

    actually googles IPO was in 2004, and I'd guess apple stock has risen a bit in value in the past decade

    I remember when Lt. Dan invested my money in some fruit company...later he called me and told me I didn't have to worry 'bout money no more. And that's good...one less thing to worry about.

    Lt. Dan was smart in 1984.

    Why invest in two companies if you're from the future? Invest in the one with the biggest returns. Invest all of your money.

    The one rule of long-term investing is Diversify.

    Plus, who knows what kind of butterfly effect you'll have.

    I think that rule only applies when you can't time travel.

    ^Yeah, but see my 2nd statement. Who knows what some guy privately buying up a bunch of stock and then disappearing into the wings will do? Who knows when it comes to the Time-Space Continuum?

    Oh yeah, this guy.

    In all seriousness though, I agree choose one and get ready for fun.

    I would also want to go back to 1996 to check out The Nutty Professor in theatres. I want to be part of history.
