    It's not much better in 2011 mate



    Yeah, you're right. Things like medicine, equal rights, access to decent food and water, the ability to travel more freely, modern entertainment, etc. That all sucks.



    People romanticize the past too much. Though I guess you can blame generations of historians focusing far too heavily on the 'elites' of societies for that.

    An imagination will do that, as it would everything else, bygone or present.

    Medicine and access to decent food and water? For how many of the global population though? Not nearly enough.

    "Equal rights"? Did you not hear about Troy Davis? Racism and sexism still very much exist today.

    Ability to travel more freely - the threat of terrorism has made airport checks more stringent, and there are hardly any cheap flights anymore. It's so difficult for a British person to get a US visa or the right to live in places like Australia.

    Modern entertainment - The X Factor, Justin Bieber, crap CGI Hollywood films.

    Yep, it's great living in 2011.

    20,000BC.

    As a caveman, in Southern Africa. Doing what the hell i want, when the hell i want. No routine, no stress, no bull of modern day life.
    Just me, my cave woman and my spear
    The cave woman would probably be bitchy and ruin it.

    How about any of the Religious milestones place and time. You get to go with a digital recorder and a ticket back. We'll sort out all the bull**** one way or the other.

    I would want to be born in about 60 BC, to a wealthy family in Rome. Then I would be 16 when Caesar got assasinated, would witness the civil war between Augustus and Mark Anthony, the foundation of the Roman Empire etc. Then in my early 50s move to the Roman province of Judaea, witness the birth of Jesus, then in about 10AD move to Athens and chill in Classical Greece for a while, before moving back to Judaea in about 30AD and hang out with Jesus and see his miracles. Then die at the old age of 95 in 35AD.

    It'd be quite cool to go live on the plains of Africa. But I still want a house. Can I take my house and all my stuff to a time before imperialsim and just chill there for a bit?

    7th century Arabia. The people at the time used to say that there was so much gold in the area that the people didn't know where to give their charities. People were also much kinder there
