Provided you had the choice, where would you want to live: in the past or in the future?

I'd go with the future. I wouldn't mind either but I'm more partial to finding out 'what may be' than reliving 'what already was'.

The future,because I'll probably be living with someone very special to me and they may have a cure for a certain body problem I'm having.

We already have a general idea of how things were in the past, so I'd say the future would be more interesting to visit.

Hmm, if I could keep my current salary, probably the 1950's. War was done, people coming off the "high" of that victory, it was considered the golden age in television, it was still extremely cheap to live even though technology was advancing fast. Men wore suits all the time, the cars still had creative design and you can get a cheeseburger for a nickel.

I'm fine with the present right now. I'd take the future if I had a job.

This is unquestionably the best time to be alive (well, in the US). I'm very curious to see where the future will go, but I can predict a lot of not so good changes coming up too. I'd rather play it safe and live to see it unfold.

If I had to choose, I'd choose the past. I'm unsure of the future. Although I'm very comfortable living in the present.

The present, really. I can't really know for sure because I have no other time era to compare my life to.

Future. The past would be incredibly interesting to visit no doubt, but not to live in unless it was quite recently.

I would say about a decade ago, so I would be born in the early 1980's. I think that technology nowadays has ruined much social interaction among teenagers, and i kind of want to live my teenage years when social networks, texting, FPS's, and computers weren't that big. I feel it would better friendships everywhere if facebook didn't exist.

It depends on a lot of things. If I were rich, it wouldn't matter, past, present, future, the rich live pretty comfortable lives. If I were poor, no way I would ever want to live in the past. Poor people had it even worse in the past. Then there is the aspect of what the world will be like. If the world is a totalitarian 1984-esque dictatorship in the future, I'd like to stay away from that. But if it is all Jetson's-like, that would be pretty neat. I guess the present is the only sure fire one though.

Lets see. In the past you've got poorer standasrds of living, worse technology, much more racism, sexiasm and homophobia.

I can't think of a single reason why someone would want to live in the past.

Since the quality of life is always rising, I'd prefer the future with access to a time machine whenever I want.
