    Either out west circa 1870 or in the future, about 3500 or so.

    Depends. Do I get to come back and bet CF credits based on my knowledge gained in the future? Granted, I'll stilll probably lose.

    Re: What century/ year would you live in

    I've always been fascinated at two periods 1) the old West and 2) the 60s/70s. Seems like it was a fairly simple time with not too many worries; aside from the fact that a common cold could kill you. However, I think it would be neat to see how things were done back then without all the technology now.

    I've always seemed intrigued by the 60s & 70s as well. Other than the Vietnam War, it seemed like it was pretty much a free society. Maybe some of the people on here who were old enough to remember that time can elaborate. But it seems like people were so care-free. I mean, there was a period during the 60s when they thought LSD was GOOD for you! Obviously, that's not true, but those years seem like a time before we had all the stresses about society, money, cancer, etc.

    I believe the 60's and 70's were decades. And I'm guessing you did live in that century.

    I would go with 1500's or something like that. I've always wanted to just carry a sword around. And plus it would be funny to tell them about the light bulb and Ipods.

    But, I did have my appendix removed when I was 12 . That means I would have died early. So I'm kind of torn.

    Yes, I am aware that the 60s/70s are decades. I guess I picked up something when I got my degree. However, the title of the thread was century/year. So, since I was not alive the 60s and 70s I was saying that I would've like to have been old enough to live in that society.

    Thanks for the clarification though.

    I was just messin with ya.

    You know, I don't think things were better or more laid back then. I just dont' think we know enough about the times. Kind of like when you're in elementary school and junior high. You really have no idea what is going on in the world and it seems really great. Then you grow up and watch the news, read the paper and find out what kind of dump we're living in.

    Re: What century/ year would you live in

    After watching the show 1968 on the history channel with my dad a few weeks ago I was amazed. Our country was a totally different place then. Civil unrest was common, assassinations... all kinds of crazy stuff. I would like to go to then.

    Re: What century/ year would you live in

    I would pick the 1960's or perhaps the frontier days.

    Sometimes I think I lived a past life as a hippie or a hipster n the 1960's-1970's, pretty much all of my favorite music comes from that era, my favorite cars, etc. I was born in 1978, so maybe I died my former life of an OD that year.

    Of course, this is all flawed because I don't believe in reincarnation.

    1967-1975. Summer of love to mid 70's. The music from that time period is easily the best imo.

    My friends and I have this conversation all the time.

    The year that Microsoft went public.

    We DO get to keep our current knowledge, right? So we could take a few Wall Street Journals and make some prudent stock trades.

    If not then, then whenever the free sex pre-aids era was. Good times, good times.

    Around 1000 so I could tell Mohammed that he may want to rethink how he presents his beliefs and how some of his future followers will go about their business in the future...just thinking out of the box again.

    Jumper is a new show on TV that addresses some of the travel in time qwuestions.
