    Is there any event/place that existed before your time that you feel like you would have really enjoyed, but missed out on?

    Not one bit. In fact, I was born too early.

    It would be nice to be a teen or younger now, since gay rights are close to the pinnacle of being approved. My first 20 years of being "out" were fucking hell.

    nope.
    I was born in 1993 and I like this number.
    People can consider me as a kid but I'll get old soon.
    Just enjoy all the event after we were born.

    Call me crazy, but I think I might have enjoyed a year in the Army when they had the draft but no war.

    I'd have liked to have been alive in post-WWII America. A time when American patriotism was alive and the country was thriving.

    I just read a article about how things are better now then they have ever been, but it just feels like twitter, email, phones have reduced the interaction of people and people have generally just become selfish and not interested in bettering the communal good of the world.

    FYI

    Swing was 30s-40s

    Your Barcardi guy was born in the 1970s....

    Don't be such a drag, be a queen! You were born to experience what you did to make you better for it. I'd loved to been born in the early 60's, or in Pioneer Days, but no such luck. Draw from within what you seek from without.

    No, not really. The past tends to be overly romanticized. I doubt it was really that great. It probably smelled bad too.

    Yeeesssss! It would've been cool to have been a young adult during the time when Pixar was being built up from the start. Then I'd find my way into the company, work on Toy Story, and be apart of the amazing company it is now!

    Personally, I would kill to experience New York in the 80's, but that's based mostly on cultural observations. I can appreciate the strides society has made towards tolerance, but otherwise I don't find the current zeitgeist all that interesting.

    I would have loved to have been around in the late 60s/early 70s when NASA was actually racing ahead with things. I'm pretty interested in the apollo and earlier space flight programs. It would have been nice to have been around to see man land on the moon.

    I really like where things are right now in a lot of ways though. I feel like we are the peak of western civilization but I have a sinking feeling we are about to go down.

    Spain pretty much sucked during most of the 20th century. Not sure I would've wanted to be alive during the Civil War and Franco regime. Life in Spain didn't really start to thrive until the '80s when I was born.

    There are a lot of things in history that I think it would have been awesome to be alive during and have that experience, but I think a lot of things have yet to come in the next several years that will make it an awesome time to be alive as well icon_biggrin.gif

    During my early teenage years, I had this major thing for Korn (yeah yeah...), so I imagine i'd be quite happy there as well.
