Time travel! LOL Great top ten

Joanne said...

We're talking high finance here under the tiki-hut! Fun li$t going on ... and then comes the issue of $pending it! Happy weekend :)

VR Barkowski said...

Gosh, is there no way just to work and earn it anymore? There probably is, but I can see why it didn't make the top ten. :)

Mason Canyon said...

I think I'd be in for the time travel. Just image what else could be done. LOL

Laura Eno said...

Love these! Of course, some carry more risk than others... ;)
I'd like the time travel adventure. Is there a time schedule for departure?

Maryann Miller said...

VR, just working for it and earning it is so boring. LOL I think we could do a serious top ten list of ways to get money, but this one was more fun.

Talli Roland said...

I love the 'print it yourself'! Think I may have to do just that!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

I pick the last one!

Carol Kilgore said...

Summer - Thanks.

Joanne - The fun part!

VR - My take home pay barely takes me home.

Mason - Exactly.

Carol Kilgore said...

Laura - We'll leave as soon as I find a reliable DeLorean :)

Maryann - You'll notice I didn't say 'Become a Writer' on this list...LOL

Talli - Print a Get Out of Jail Free card first.

Alex - Sounds like fun to me, too.

LR said...

I would love to make a fortune - any which way.

Tonight I'll have to just settle for a pina colada. Poor me! ;)

Elspeth Antonelli said...

Love this, Carol! Each of these options is worthy of considerable thought. I shall ponder them this evening.

Arlee Bird said...

I am such a big fan of time travel so I love that pick. I've thought of that often. And I think it fits in the rules of time travel since you'd be bringing something to the present that already exists.
But I'll take any of them--I just want my fortune!

Lydia K said...

Here in Omaha #4 would also come with a "be friends with Warren Buffet when he was a nobody and give him a few thousand dollars."

Those friends of him now are all over Omaha--seems like every new building has their name on it!

Carol Kilgore said...

LR - Right now, a pina colada sounds perfect!

Elspeth - There may or may not be some I wouldn't ponder over too much :)

Arlee - Maybe one day.

Lydia - Oh yeah. Investment Guru of the first order.

Holly Ruggiero said...

I'll go for #1 too!

The Golden Eagle said...

Love the last one! :)

Sheila Deeth said...

I love it!!!

Carol Kilgore said...

Holly - We'll have enough to fill the entire time travel ship.

Golden Eagle - You'll be standing in line with everyone else to purchase your ticket.

Sheila - Cool :)

Medeia Sharif said...

Excellent tips, particularly #1. :)

Carol Kilgore said...

Let's all jump on the bus!

Aubrie said...

Oh boy! That #1 way is pretty cool. If only I had a machine....

Guess I'll have to create it myself.

Carol Kilgore said...

Do it!
You'll make a fortune - LOL.

Manzanita said...

I always like your lists and especially agree on this one of how to make a fortune. If you're a risk taker, way to go.
Love and peace

Stephen Tremp said...

I'll go out to the garage and blow the dust off my wormhole. Been a while since I used it. Think I'll go five years in the future and buy a Wall Street Journal.

Carol Kilgore said...

Manzanita - I'm sure there are one or two risk takers out there.

Stephen - I figured the time travel would get your attention. Very smart to purchase a future WSJ :)

lbdiamond said...

Lol! I like the time travel one, though could be tricky to carry out. ;)

The Words Crafter said...

If I could, I'd save a couple paychecks and time travel back and invest it all in apple or yahoo or google.....or merck! Great list!

Carol Kilgore said...

lbdiamond - Depends on what it is.

Words Crafter - All you need to do is invent a time machine :)

Janet, said...

Great list! We could pick a number at random, and use that way to write a manuscript about how our character gets rich and the book becomes a best seller and we make our own fortune.

Carol Kilgore said...

There you go. Do it!
