    The present or future. Why would you want to live in an era where life was worse than it currently is? That would include...well, every single decade before this one since the beginning of humanity.

    I'd like to live in the time period at some point in the future, when we are exploring the universe on inter galactic spaceships. So long as I wasn't made into the Borg.

    If thats the case, send me back to a few days before Super Bowl III. I'm about to get stinking rich......

    Re: In What Time Period Would You Like to Live?

    If I can go back and live with the benefit of the knowledge I have today, and with any materials that I can bring back from today... any time in the past before last century would be good, though the further back the better.

    I cannot dream of a better accomplishment in my life than ensuring the survival of Vinland as a free and independent nation into the modern day.

    Otherwise, future. Always forward. I want to live to see integration of electronics with the human form and human mind. I want to colonize distant planets and see my people live among the stars. I wish to see the triumph of medicine over old age and disease, and live in an era in which people only die violently. I want to watch the evolution of my species into something better, and see what kinds of accomplishments my superhuman descendants are capable of.

    Sometime in the Mid-1800's America... I'd brave dysentery to pioneer across an unravaged land as a hunter and trapper or a caravan member.

    Make-believe is fun.

    Future, of course. We already know about the past, and my curiosity compels me.
