    I was discussing this with my housemates last night.. Interesting to hear everyone's preference!

    So there we go, the question is simple; if you could have the choice, which era would you want to live in, and why?

    I would LOVE to have been around in Tudor times.. Completely fascinated by it! (My friends think that's mental; They all said the 50s or 60s!)
    Napoleonic era. I would love to be a colonel of the foot in the C18th!

    Definitely the Victorian era, since it produced some of my favourite literature.
    And I have a bit of an addiction to corsets

    I wouldn't have minded living through the 70's either though! Missed out on a lot of fun by being a 90's child...

    JAZZ AGE!!!

    late 50's... Miles Davis, Coltrane, The Bird, Duke. What the **** could be better!!

    I'd be in a Harlem jazz club drinking whiskey, smoking a joint, and listening to some smooth MD...

    Either Ancient Rome (bless those men in gladiator armor... yum!) or in the time of the Vikings. Anything in the BC's, really, when life was so different yet enchanting to us today.

    Um the 50s. People seemed to meet, get married, have babies and live happy ever after.

    That doesn't happen these days. Nobody seems to say together anymore, and the whole institution of marriage is given up way too easily. Tis sad.

    Yeah my parents split when I was 3/4.

    My Dads parents were celebrating their almost 50th I think (my Grandad died fairly young).

    58 years, wow, good on them!

    You've been playing Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood right? :teehee:
    Good thinking but no actually- I've never played the series. Just the general idea of living during the renaissance in the country in which it originated. But, come to think of it, America in the 19th century would be nice.

    My first thought was the Victorian era,as it has always fascinated me,from reading Oliver Twist to going to museums,but I dont think it was a great era to be a woman then,not one of the worst,but hardly the best either..so probably the forties.

    The 60s so I could be a hippy, experiment with drugs and have casual sex with various partners.
    Or maybe the early-mid 90s, I like most of the music from that era. Not like now when music is ****. I was born in 1992 so I'm not old enough to remember any of it. :mad:
