Upon awakening, it seems like I could have done better. Especially because I just looked up the history of IBM and they were already a long thriving business by 1927.

What would you have told someone from that era?

I'd tell people how to sell short. They'd have made a fortune.

RE: What advice would you give in 1927?
Id be a bit wary how my decisions would affect the future.

I did originally think of going back to September 11th 2001 and ringing up airports where the planes got hijacked from and telling them I have planted bombs in some pathetic way to try to keep the planes grounded.

For no matter how much I use these symbols, to describe symptoms of my existence.
You are your own emphasis.
So I say nothing.

That thought crossed my mind when I woke up that I should have suggested that.


Or MAYBE it was a true story and the person I was talking to was Joe Kennedy. Consider
