    Fer me, purdy sure I said it a bunch already in various threads and whatnot.
    Early 1930s, in or just outside the small rural town I live in now (the place I live in's practically already there (30's) now... 2017 is outside my front door) now.

    How 'bout you ?

    That's a tough one.

    With all of the modern conveniences and social progress we have now, it's hard to say that the past could possibly be better.
    Then again, who's to say the future is or is not going to be significantly better? Who's to say there's even much of a future at all?

    Despite that, I think I'd honestly want to live in prehistoric eras. I know life would be hard and harsh, but I think that it's humanity in its natural habitat, and that would be cool to experience. No cellphones and shorter lifespans, sure- but I think they would be more natural and maybe even happier lives than what we have now.

    In the 1950/60's, though I admit I have been drawn to ancient Egypt most of my life.

    I like the prospect of living beyond 30, so backwards really isn't something I'd do other than read about it.

    I like this era. Because i am allowed to be myself. Speak what i want. Wear what i want. Eat what i want. Have opinions and share them. My freedoms are very important to me.

    But sometimes I wished i lived in MiddleEarth LOTR era. Where I would be a Strider.

    Oh boy....thats just....sad that you dont know that. Read the lotr books. Dont jyst watch the movies. There are original books behind the movies you know?

    http://lotr.wikia.com/wiki/Aragorn_II_Elessar

    "Suddenly Frodo noticed that a strange-looking weather-beaten man, sitting in the shadows near the wall, was also listening intently to the hobbit-talk. He had a tall tankard in front of him, and was smoking a long-stemmed pipe curiously carved. His legs were stretched out before him, showing high boots of supple leather that fitted him well, but had seen much wear and were now caked with mud. A travel-stained cloak of heavy dark-green cloth was drawn close about him, and in spite of the heat of the room he wore a hood that overshadowed his face; but the gleam of his eyes could be seen as he watched the hobbits."

    "As Frodo drew near he threw back his hood, showing a shaggy head of dark hair flecked with grey, and in a pale stern face a pair of keen grey eyes."

    I know what's shes saying though. The 30s was cool I like that whole art deco period. Cool cars, buildings, the people were hard working. However the Great Depression is something I wouldn't want to live through. Then WW2 sucked.

    Today's world has many problems, but so did every other. Might as well live in the now.

    Between 1650 and 1720, I think. Living on a mountain somewhere beyond the American frontier, married to a native woman, happy to be away from civilization, surrounded by endless forests, unnamed mountains, and rivers no one has crossed.

    I often find myself lamenting our conquered frontiers. I would have liked to see the world as it was before we came along putting our filthy, smog-filled cities on it.

    Wait... like, there's more than one? ;)

    Kidding, but that's an interesting thought. Maybe we should make a "Which fictional universe would you want to live in", too! I'd put mine now, but I'm not quite sure. Definitely not Game of Thrones.... I'd say Star Wars, but when you get down to it, Star Wars is probably as bad to live in as GOT, probably even worse, really. Maybe during the Republic things would've been better, depending on where you lived.


    Anyway, back on topic- another time I wouldn't mind living is Ancient Rome, in Rome itself. Bonus points if I get to be Emperor or a high consular.

    For me it would ether be late Anglo Saxon Just for the experience even if I probably wouldn't last long.
    The other time period I would love to visit would be late 16TH or early 17TH century so that I could see my house being built.
