A man started trading stocks two weeks ago with $800. His portfolio is now worth $350 million. Of course, he was promptly arrested for insider trading. When the authorities questioned him, he gave a four-hour confession.
He claims that he is a time traveler from the year 2256 who came back to get rich off the stock market. All he wants is to return to his own time. He will not give the location of his time machine or discuss how it works, but he has offered to provide “historical facts” such as the location of Osama bin Laden and a cure for AIDS if they will let him go.
The really interesting part is there is no record of this guy anywhere before December 2002.
