1. Buy 50 BTC on Mt.Gox during crash at very low price. 
2. Withdraw BTC up to daily maximum. 
3. Wait for MtGox to reverse the trade and give you a negative BTC balance.

Well, that's a slap on the knee.

Can you find a method that doesn't involve time travel and/or exchange-wide misfortune please?

I'm not terribly bright.  Only figured out that method because it happened to me.  I realized I suddenly had limited unlimited potential losses.  Wink

this implies you consider yourself somewhere in the range of 100% dim right up to the edge of terribly bright, I'd think even you would be able to narrow the range down a bit more than that. maybe more honest would be, "I'm not at all bright".
