To the 1820's. No foreknowledge or preparation, you could bring nothing from the present with you. Would you have an edge over the current 1820's population? What would you do? (Saw this topic on another forum and thought it was worth sharing.)

Go to California, get rich from gold, set up drygood stores, become part of the 1%, change my name to Madlove and become POTUS (Bill Clinton style).

Would you have an edge over the current 1820's population?
-Yes, much of the population - if it was currently the 1820's .. there's a play on the wording "the current 1820's population"

What would you do?

- Wouldn't get much sleep between industrial chemistry, the petroleum/oil industry and electrical engineering. I'd toss in some Anthropologist work in there, too

I would be a full foot taller than most people of that day. They would probably string me up and burn me for being a Warlock or Wizard.

If they didn't, I would dominate the 3 on 3 basketball games after I invented them.

Start filing patents. Of course they would only be good for so long, so get busy building stuff too.

I just finished Calc 3, and I would definitely be burned as a warlock for meting their fuggin minds with math.
I say its only fair that I melt someones mind with math as mine was thoroughly melted.

So, no concerns over contracting dysentery or smallpox or some nasty thing, and die horribly?

I would be active in the abolitionist movement and the women's rights movement. Hopefully, my contributions could get unenfranchised people the rights they deserve as citizens of this country.
