What is preventing you from buying a sports/farmers/wall street almanac for the year you're going to and taking it with you?

Well I don't know about proof, but I think I'd travel back in time and tell myself not to read this thread. Because I am evidently depressingly old.
Though honestly if it were me and I were traveling back through time...if I didn't have an agenda I would just live a very quiet life betting on events I already knew the outcome of.

As far as "bringing something back" I suppose I should have been more specific. The repeatedly banned member who kept coming back trying to claim that they were from the future and needed help, had supposedly been sent back in time suddenly and accidentally. In one thread they claimed that it happened while they were sleeping. So, let's run with that.
Like Terminator, you can't bring anything back with you. And even better yet, it happens unexpectedly. Marooned in time perhaps.
No rule here though really. Just some framework from my perspective, but feel free to add your own spice and scenarios here. Maybe we can create our own little multiverse of time-travel conspiracy, a spider web. Let's go crazy, like unraveling a big cable-knit sweater that someone keeps knitting and knitting and knitting. Oh flashback!
After his first full-length film, this character went on to start a truly disturbing children's daytime television show which begain airing in September of 1986...
