    Who else in their right mind is not going to choose a lifestyle where they are rich or powerful?

    I would live in the Georgian times (I think that's the Marie Antoinette one) and I'd want to be of royal blood. A princess or Queen. I'm in love with the dresses they wear. If not in France then I'd be a ancient Korean (joseon) gisaeng.

    Not in the past; everyone seems to romanticise the past for the music or fashion or whatever, but they conveniently forget how s***** it was for the vast majority of people. So, for me the future, as a scientist.

    This period. The 21st century.

    Anyone who say's otherwise hasn't actually thought about the question rationally

    Yep, but let's be honest here it was much worse in the past.

    The quality of life of someone in the past is likely going to be worse than any TSR user's life in the present, even if rich. For example, I heard it once said that everyone here is far wealthier than Elizabeth I by virtue of the things we take for granted each day. No matter how wealthy Elizabeth I was, she couldn't even buy a wristwatch.

    Average quality of life has improved reliably over time, which should suggest that you should choose some time in the future, although it's not guaranteed. A safe bet would be someone rich in the present.

      A Duke back in the 18th century sounds nice.
