If you could have lived in any place in time, what year or years would you choose? Why would you choose that time?

Yep I think there is a lot to be said. I know that the reality would be hard, but oh what an opportunity!

There are no past eras that I would prefer to live in; I like modern comforts. I would, though, like to pop back to various times just to take a look & maybe meet a few historical people.

Yeah the romantic part would be shortly overshadowed by the amount of technology I would be missing for sure .. LOL

We are all products of our time, of our society - I doubt many of us would ever feel comfortable in another time, neither in the future nor in the past (just as I would imagine those born in another time would have difficulty adapting to our time).

 There are always negative and positive aspects to the many times in history as there would also be in the future. You would always be trading off one thing for another and it would be difficult no matter what era!  One can always pick out the romantic  or sweet things they want to see , and turn around and find the negatives that would cancel them out or even make them less appealing..LOL I do it all the time.. I think wouldn't it be cool to be there then then I think Hmmm was the source of entertainment back then.. LOL It may have been seeing someone beheaded or perhaps a duel to the death or on and on.. Need I say more.. I find many of the old entertainments quite barbarian.. to say he least, not saying that all was bad.. but alot of what was seen as entertainment would only serve to make me sick and make me want to go home!!! LOL

But what if you find out something unpleasant about the future?

Besides which, it really does not take the mystery out of your future at all, because your future now has itself moved into the future.  It might take the mystery out of everybody else's future (so, when you have moved into the future, you will be able to find out when your parents and your siblings will die, etc.), but you will now be living in the future, not in our present, so you will still not know your own destiny.

Oh sure, confuse it all. It would still be cool in the future. Despite anything unpleasant.

Hmmmm, where would I go, what would I see.

I think I would just like to travel back and fourth, be a little like Dr Who, although without having to solve any mysteries ;)

I would definitely want to experience the 50's and 60's, be present at the Martin Luthor speach as well as JFK's. There is so much I would want to see though.


...............Oh, I would definitely have to try and slip myself some winning lottery numbers ;)
