    Post In What Time Period Would You Like to Live?

    Have you ever thought about living in a time other than the present? If so, what time and for what reason?

    If we went back in time, we would gain:
    * More freedom
    * Lower population density
    * Less crime
    * Better environment

    But there would be a trade off of less technology; we would have to give up all the gadgets that were made after the time you chose to live.

    So the question is: In what time period would you like to live?

    The poll is multiple choice; you can choose more than one time period.

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

    The only think that would really bother me about going back in time is my strong, outspoken atheism probably wouldn't be taken too kindly. Still, I'd rather have lived back before the government got to be the size and abusive as it is now, when things were well more free. That, or an old school pirate. Cause those guys were cool.

    I'd probably go back to the time they wrote the Constitution for the United States and made sure they put some important information in there (and took out some other things).

    Or the sixties. That would have been a helluva time.

    In the future. I just have to go there first to make sure it's okay. I don't want to get stuck in some world war or nothing.
    Is what you're living for today, worth dying for tomorrow?

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

    Since, using my time displacement device (which doubles as an alternate universe transport), specially fitted with a temporal envelope, protecting me from paradoxes and other dangerous anomalies, I have traveled to many time periods both past and present, choosing one that I particularly liked is difficult. I must consider this question, carefully.
