Quoting Clarabell

I've often wondered if I'd be burnt as a witch if I went back to the wrong time....

I don't have to wonder... I know they would have roasted me over an open fire!

I think I would like to do a lot of skipping around...the 1920's, 30's, 40's, 50's, 60's (Already saw the 70's, 80's, etc..)
Turn of the centruy would be pretty awesome too...the 1400's, 1700's...too chicken to hit prehistoric times (would rather not be a T-rex treat) And I wouldn't go forward too far, because I really don't think the human race will still be here.

Reckon the 1920's was fun and the 1950's. Kind of after the big wars when everyone appreciated being alive and discovering leisure time again!

To be in the era of Karl Marx & Martin Luther.

thats an interesting one.. I'd either want to go back to middle ages and wander around europe, just to see what it would've looked like back before industry and such, but i do think that it was hard as hell living back then, it wasn't all gallavanting around on some hero's journey where everything's poetic and romanticized, i think it was brutal as hell to try and survive, and death was probably more like a sometime in the next week thing rather than sometime in the distant future. but i'd still do it, i'd just wander around playing my flute at inn's and doin whatever i could to survive.. i know i could do it, i prettymuch live by instinct anyway. everyone always tells me im stuck in the past anyway. hell, i make wooden bows and have a sword and axe in my room hahaha.

But i think what would really be sick would be to go back pre-A.D. pre-Roman power and go train under the druids in england and ireland. to think about all i could learn, i would easily spend years becoming a druid, the only reason we dont know the extent of what they knew is becuase they did it all by memory, they refused to write it down. to be a part of that legacy would be the most amazing thing ever. that information and experience alone is worth more than anything else in the world. besides, im a tree-huggin naturalist anyway.

ok thats it for me, thanks for the thread kelly, it was fun figurin it out peace~
