While cleaning the cushions of your couch, you find an old gold pocket watch that you
don't recognize. Antiques Roadshow is in town, so you take the watch for appraisal.
You are shocked to learn that the watch's original owner was none other than George
Washington (apparently a former resident of your house). The expert tells you it's
worth $100,000. After an embarrassing victory dance on national television, you
trade in the watch for cash. Now what? It's time to play the stock market.
