I assume we're stuck in that new time.I assume we would retain our current-day age. (Being 20 versus being 60 might make a difference in deciding which time-frame one might choose, assuming a 90 year life span.)I'd go back to 1972. That means I'd probably die a natural death around 2010.I'm a car guy. 1972 was a major year in automotive history, some calling it the last year of the classic muscle car era. It was also a year when a person could have bought any number of those cars at prices that seem ridiculous: GTOs with trip 2-barrels, Chargers and Challengers, Chevelle SS, Mustangs, including Shelby Cobras, even some early 1960s and late 1950s, 55, 56, 57 T-Birds, 409 Chevrolets, some Studebakers and Edsels, and possibly even a few '48 Tuckers could have been found for a reasonable amount.With knowledge of what was to come, I'd easily get employment as an investment advisor - buying all of my own recommendations, of course. In fact, In no time at all, I'd go from being an employee to the employer. Warren Buffet - move over. With knowledge of the IPOs of the early 1980s: "Sure, Bill, I'll buy 10,000 shares of your little start-up company."I could raise a lot of cash really fast by placing well-timed bets on football, baseball, and other sporting events. What kind of odds were being offered for a bet that the Dolphins would not only win the Super Bowl, but go undefeated in 1972? 100-1? 200-1? I'd parlay those winnings and let it all ride on Secretariat to win the Triple Crown. Another 200-1? MAybe more? I could go on.Earning (or winning) money would be no problem. Buying the right real estate at the right time. One could have bought the entire southern half of the Las Vegas strip for peanuts, being worth tens of billions only a couple of decades later. I'd start buying all those muscle cars I could find. A lot of people didn't know they would become the classics they did. Especially in 1973, when the Arab gas embargo and gas lines caused people to dump those gas guzzlers in hoards - and for pennies on the current-day dollar value. "Sure, dude, I'll give you $800 for your 1968 Chevelle SS." And I'd have the real estate to keep them all safely stored.I'd be the best and most accurate business investment advisor on the planet, the best sports picker, the most savvy real estate investor, and I'd have the best classic car collection one could possibly imagine. And I'd be more generous with that wealth than one could imagine, knowing just how I could recreate it. Tip a couple of hundred for a $10 lunch. Handing out thousands, tens of thousands, or even millions to people. Imagine how fun that would be!In short, knowing then what I know now, I'd simply live the last 40 years all over again! And with my massive amounts of wealth and incredible insight, I'd be at the time in history when Liberty in the United States was at the beginning of its end, and would be in an absolute ideal position to influence the political future of the United States, stopping a lot of stuff from ever happening.Other possibilities: I'd love to dine with Presidents Washington, Adams, and Jefferson - or even before that when they were drafting the Constitution. "Thomas," I might say, "consider how folks 200 years from now (from then) might interpret General Welfare. For clarity, you might want to consider.....

The music was great. Disco was still around too. I loved to dance and life was so much more carefree than it is today. Of course, I was much younger too. Hopefully, if I went back, I would be young again too.No internet. No cell phones. Just peace, love and rock and roll. Cool cars and good times. Companies you worked for offered you training and a career path. You could retire from a company after a lifetime of service.I didn't have much money and didn't care. Still, I could do that again, just for the concerts.AV + 0 Votes For me... NexS 3 years ago I'd be very interested in seeing the past as it was in the 15-17 centuries.
