Default If you could pick another time to be alive...

If you could pick another time to be alive, when would it be? I'd like to see how things will be 100-500 years from now. Technology will be much more advanced and I think we'll have people on other planets but I think the planet will be much worst to live on.

Be in my mid 30s when cars like the 300ZX, MK4 Supra, FD RX7, MR2, C5, and NSX were all brand new and affordable (relatively) and the economy hadn't tanked yet

No other time. Just my time in a different direction. I've often wondered what it would be like if every zig was a zag. If I chose differently at every critical fork.

For how long we thinking, day, two, a week?? Give me Roman times, the Caesar times B.C. Just a day, maybe two. Even the dinosaur error, that just a day. I thought of being chased around by a PIA dinosaur will aggravate me.
