"Time Traveller" rakes it in

A pretty amazing story which looks totally bogus, but you can’t help but wonder if there’s some possibility it’s true.

“But the fact is, with an initial investment of only $800, in two weeks’ time he had a portfolio valued at over $350 million. Every trade he made capitalized on unexpected business developments, which simply can’t be pure luck.”

Carlssin declared that he had traveled back in time from over 200 years in the future, when it is common knowledge that our era experienced one of the worst stock plunges in history. Yet anyone armed with knowledge of the handful of stocks destined to go through the roof could make a fortune.

  1. The article link is busted … but my question is: If he really did travel back in time, why would he tell anyone? Wouldn’t that break the space time continuum even further?

    I learned about time travel during an episode of the Simpsons, and it seems pretty dangerous.

  2. Sorry guys… I fixed the link. Yeah, I know it’s from a tabloid but I still think the article is compelling to read. I’m sure it’s totally bogus (but doesn’t a part of you want to believe…)

  3. Compelling to read?? Are you fucking serious? It’s a damn post from a tabloid, you moron. I KNOW it’s totally bogus.

  4. I guess when I said “I’m sure it’s totally bogus” you took that to mean “I definitely think this story is true.”

    It’s certainly not impossible for a piece of fiction to be compelling to read.
