You just need this t-shirt: https://topatoco.com/products/qw-cheatsheet
>From the description: "This shirt has how-to information on all of the low-hanging fruit of our modern age. Go back in time wearing this and you'll invent heavier-than-air flight! YOU'LL discover penicillin. YOU'LL be the first to isolate aluminum. Did you know aluminum used to be more valuable than gold? YOU'RE GONNA BE RICH. SPECIAL BONUS FEATURE: this shirt also doubles as an "holy cow if this shirt somehow got sent back in time EVERYTHING WOULD BE CHANGED" item. This one garment - YOUR SHIRT - can/definitely will/might have already change(d) the entire course of human history. Wear it with pride!"
Of course, you would have to be wearing it when you were transported back in time. (Maybe you need a whole wardrobe of these shirts, to wear at all times?) I did buy one for my son.
