News Flash: A Time Machine Has Been Invented!

Wow, I bet you never thought you'd see this happen during your lifespan: it has recently become possible to travel backwards in time! I and many others have been experimenting with it over the past few months. At first I just tried some short hops backwards and forwards, sometimes only by a month or so at a time. More recently I took a much bigger leap back by a couple of years! I am currently living somewhere in mid-2006. Another personal finance blogger, Moom, has been even more adventurous-- he's managed to turn back the clock to late 2004! But I guess Boston Gal's time travel experiment made her a bit queasy, so she only went back to about January 2008.

Here are some photos from our fantastic voyages:

How about you? Are you living in the past?


*BostonGal hasn't updated NetworthIQ lately, but the red horizontal line indicates her current net worth.

Thank you to the folks at NetWorthIQ for the charts!

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

I guess that's one way to look at it! I have't been tracking net worth that long, but I'm probably back 2 years or so.

Well...for some reason the time machine doesn't work if you kept your cash in your mattress...or bought a scooter! Oh, and bought a cool car for an amazing $500. So, somehow I'm still up here in 2009. But i was just over at Savvy Saver this morning, and had noticed the same time-jump phenomena in her NW and thought, "Wow! She kinda went back in time!" -even before i looked at your fun post! *Sigh* This is definitely not a good time to be watching the charts...
