    If you could choose to be born 10 or 20 years earlier, would you go ahead with it? Or are you happy with the year you were born?

    I personally would want to be born 10 years earlier. Seems like life would be easier.

    I would have to say I happy with the year I was born. 10 or 20 years before weren't really interesting if could go back further in time period then probably would consider it as it would have been more interesting and a proper life rather than what this modern life is like

    No, why on earth would I want that? I'd be 41 or 51 by now! Hell, life goes by fast enough as it is, without cracking an extra 10 or 20 years onto me!

    Would I like to have experienced different periods in time? Sure, but not at the expense of now being 10 or 20 years older haha.

    I'd like to be born during the war so I could get a nice job during expansionism of 50s/60s rather than worrying about my future today

    10/20 years ago no, though, no real difference. perhaps a cheaper house in mid-90s but that's about it

    If it meant better health, then sure, otherwise definitely not - t'internet breaks the social isolation/inertia imposed by chronic illness and broadens horizons

    Maybe 5 years, then the pressure of A-Levels would be lower. January resits + generally lower entry requirements for unis

    If I was born just a year earlier I would have been paying 3k uni fees instead of 9!

    If I could I would choose to be born one year earlier so I could be done with A-Levels by now and be in uni already.
