If you were to travel backward (or forward) in time, which time period would you choose and why?

I would go back to the '80s. Fashion was all about experimenting back then and it was awesome that people weren't afraid of trying something new!

yeah but everyone was discovering that they all had aids from the swinging 70's! the 80's was the downer after the high! but we did wear some fabulously shitty clothes.. so fashion wise it was all good :-D

1888. Why? BECAUSE IT'S 1888, GOD DAMNIT. I'd wear pretty dresses and dance like a fairy.

@David M.

it's also totally illegal D: (well not really. but it's ethically questionable)

any power that doesn't expressly belong to the national government, goes to the states, and the legal drinking age is not the federal government's prerogative, but they told the states if they didn't make the drinking age 21 they would lose their highway funding...

haha amsterdam :)

i hate you.

i know. it's really not worth coming here until you're 21 xD
there's nothing to do...
at least most places. and even places like new york where this IS something to do, it's more fun with that stuff....

well buying alcohol underage isn't hard, but it's more expensive and you have to know the right people

you probably wouldn't if you were traveling and knew no one D:

well, i'll turn 18 halfway through my final year of high school....

i can see having 19 as your age, like canada, because then people couldn't buy alcohol in high school. but it's really stupid to have it so high

oh, and also you can be drafted to fight in a war, but can't drink.

(well, you can't because that's only for men >.<)

Definately the decade mid-seventies til mid-eighties. About 1974 til 1984 would be about right I think =)

I even did a look practically named after this topic (but before it existed... time machine?!)

If I had a time machine I'd pick me the late 1970's

Upper-end interior design (particularly around California) was awesome, great music (bring on the smooth jazz), uninhibited fashion. I reckon it just seems a whole lot of fun =)

If anyone actually *gets* a time machine, gimme a shout - you can come wind skating with me!

the 50's.
the birth of rock and roll, the integration of white and black, the first teenagers.
idols like elvis presley, chuck berry, fats domino, little richard, james dean, marlon brando,
teenagers were so free, a new generation, new fashion, new words, new attitude, new lifestyle, new technology,
ohhh, i could go on.
it speaks to me.

i'd go forward 50 years at a time, just to see the little things that are changing.
if i was to go back in time, i'd just like to go back to when i was small, or re-live certain years of my life.

travel back to each decade of the 20th century. only for a day each, i'd like to see the society but not live in it, no time should be greater than the present for women. or if i had to choose i'd crash a hollywood party in the 50s
