    such as the 60s 70s Spartan, viking, stone age
    is there a time where you feel this is soo my ways of life, such as the music generated, the way the laws were, the way life went about etc etc,

    random i know just i always felt if not born now, i should have been born in the spartan times, and not just because of the naked man wrestling, blood wanting fights, even though seeming like a technology free life i still think living in that time zone would have been good. Also sleeping with guys or girls was not judged upon, even though i want to sleep with half the gods :-)

    I don't think I would have liked to live in any other time than the one I am living in. I like the advantages we have now that did not exist in the past, and I am not so sure the world in the future will be such a pretty place.

    Now is fine.

    Only if we could subtract all the conflict.

    I'd have trouble living in other periods.

    I love toilet paper, antibiotics, mp3s, airtravel and gay rights far far too much.

    Much as I think turn of the century (last one) would have been amazing...

    Renaissance - assuming I was in the middle-upper or upper class and I was straight...because you know all wealthy people back in that time were religious zealots icon_smile.gif ...early Renaissance that is.... late Renaissance gets to conflict-y

    All of my life I've wished I could have been around during the Hollywood Glamor years... 1920 thru 1940's...the studio system, Louis B. Mayer...

    Right now's not a bad time to be alive, all things considered. But, I think I wouldn't mind living:

    (1) in ancient Greece, as long as I had a good station in life, and some really good homosocial/sexual relationships; and

    (2) in the future, when society's (hopefully) organized with more appreciation and protection for all kinds of people.

    Several periods in history have always fascinated me and I would have wanted to live then:

    Ancient Greece,around 600-300 B.C.;all that creativity and homoeroticism/sociality.

    Renaissance Europe,1400-1600,especially Northern Italy;again, such a creative and revolutionary time as European society awoke from the sleep of the Middle Ages.

    Nineteenth century Britain,anywhere from the 1830s to 1914,with all its Victoriana;or America,being a pioneer westward to a new,better life.

    I have a very strong feeling of having lived previously,particularly the American one;and in a remote,space age future(hundreds of years hence).

    I am trying to write a novel to include all these periods.

    The here and now. When I think there may have been some idyllic time in the past in which it would be great to live, one word comes to mind: "Dentistry."

    There's always been conflict and most likely will always be.

    I'm happy with here and now, but if I had to choose something different I think it would have been cool to have gone to college in the 90s.

    For some reason I have a liking for the prohibition era. The eras following (depression, WWII, 1950's) not so much.

    Fifteen minutes ago was a Golden Age. Life was so much simpler then.

    I would have loved to experience the excess of Studio 54 and live to tell about it. 70's for sure.

    Now is great.
    'Yore' might have been interesting though.

    Shit was definitely worse in the past. All of that simplicity--ahem--but lack of medical care. But then the future has all new bugs, radiation, petrochemical spills and growing deserts. I'm going to jump in the pool and sip a margarita.
