Time traveler wins big on stocks
This guy peddled $800 into... yes you read right... $350 MILLION dollars via stock trades. When captured he said he is from two hundred years in the future.

I have no doubt if they free him, that Carlssin will disapear in the future. Carlssin is not is real name, it's a scrooge , a lame one. His place is in jail or in an asyleum.
anyway that story sound more like a first april joke, than anything else.

Thanks for posting the second, Urban Legends link! I'd read about this a few weeks ago from Yahoo, and was wondering what the outcome was.

This story was discussed in this thread
that wasn't about the war.
I was hoping it was real (I'd like some stock tips), but alas, it's just a good story.
