    If you could live in any period in time, when would it be and why?

    Gawd, what I'd have given to be alive during the Silent Film era, when the movie industry was in its infancy!

    How about you, orgers?

    The 80's. MOTU, Joe Montana, Lakers vs Celtics and great music. The world was not as messed up as it is now.

    I have always been fascinated with ancient Egypt and would love to go back to the time of the Pharaohs and see the Pyramids in their prime.
    Etheria will be mine!

    The 80's? "The world was not as messed up as it is now"? I'm betting you did not live back then in the blizzard that was L.A. It was a time and place when the more successful one was, the more danger there was. I'm blessed to have been able to survive and tell the tale. But that's a story for another time and place.

    Well said. Took me half a lifetime to realize the wisdom of that. Still, the 80's were a different time -- home computers just coming into being and the internet not even a dream. To make one's mark in the entertainment industry one had to put in time in L.A. or New York. So I had little choice. It is one of the great blessings of my life that I'm now able to live in a small village carved from a forest on the shores of Lake Michigan. I only had to crawl over 3,846 miles of broken glass to get here, but I'm here at last with my angel-of-an-Irish wife and three amazing children. That said, I guess you've forced me to revise my answer to my own question and say "Right here and now."

    I would choose right now

    Because I like the stuff we have, the Televisions, game consoles, PCs, etc etc

    I couldn't stand going back to days since passed as they would certainly bore me to tears.
    Take a look at my attempts at coloring

    and if you get the chance

    My knee jerk reaction is that I wouldn't want to live in another time.

    But then I take a few seconds to think about it. And with each time I stop to think about it I'm more and more open to the idea.

    My two times/era are. In this order:
    1. Colonial Times
    2. Dark Ages

    And for both it's the same reason. Just to see what it was like. not to meet famous figures but just to see what the lifestyle was truly like.

    Not sure I could hack it but those are my choices.

    Second that notion! Even though I lived through most of the 80's, wish I could do it again, maybe just a little bit older.
