A single share of Coca-Cola stock, purchased in 1919, when the company went public, would have been worth $92,500 in 1997

I've decided if I could back in time I'd go to see concerts I can't see now...

Cool. I'm sure similar things can be said for various other huge companies like Microsoft and so forth.
Time machines: I'd like to be in the audience when The Beatles performed on Ed Sullivan.

For sure. I just thought that was a lot of money for one share of coke. :)


No, seriously. I'd be a Beatles roadie.

Don't forget Polaroid and Xerox.
Concerts? I'd be at the Monterey Pop Fest. where Hendrix first burned a guitar on stage.

I'd also like to hear what ancient Egyptian music really sounded like. And early Romani music, too.

Yes!

I'd like to go back to the days of Christ and see what really happened.

I'd take said time machine back, and poke really famous people in history with sticks. And I'd make sure to get all of the REALLY famous ones, so that children would learn that all the really important people in history were poked by a madman with a stick. I'd be worshipped as a god. Everyone would be clamoring to be poked by me and my poke-stick. It would be amusing to no end.
