    A simple question here, but I'm sure it could be interesting.

    If you had the choice, in which time/place of History would you choose to live ? And why ?



    I would've liked to be born during the Renaissance. For the orgies. icon_twisted.gif

    Hahaha, no, seriously, I think I'd say the 1950's in the US, just to be 20 during the 1970's icon_biggrin.gif

    But I would also be tempted by 1500 in the precolumbian Americas, as a Native. They had a pretty nice "treatment" of gay people. icon_smile.gif

    Now your turn !

    Despite the romantic overtones of living in a Disneyfied version of the past, I can't bring myself to live in a time before toothpaste, running water, penicillin and an average lifespan of over 30. And an effective soap and deodorant. I suspect the past reeked like hell.

    Sophocles wrote his last play at 82 years old.

    Socrates was condemned to death at 70 or 71 and wasn't considered like an Elder yet.

    They might have been dirty, then, but there was no HIV or cancer. icon_rolleyes.gif Just barbarians and Obelix.
