1913 or 2113

If you had to pick to live 100 years in the past (any country) or 100 years in the future (any country), which would you choose? You know what the past was like, but the future is unknown.

If I'm going one way or the other, I'd like to go 100 years back. I don't like where things are going. I'm not sure I want to see what is 100 years in the future.

I think 1913 has a slight edge. Starting your life then would give you a change to see the fastest advances in medicine and technology, and periods of greatest social change in world history.

Past - I would be young when WWI occurs. A teen when the stock market crashes. If I got married, my family and I would live during the Great Depression and then enter a second world war. If my DH was still alive, we would live a nice life the rest of the time. Female rights would not be there for me until I got old.

Future - I do not know what lies ahead. I will get to alter the future.



I would want to born in 2013.

Future. I'm African American, Im very grateful for my forefather's who struggled, fought, and died for other AA to have the same rights, and be treated as equals. I wouldn't want to go back , and see the ignorance, and shamefulness of others. That's why I picked future because , I love where the world is going. We are truly starting to come together as one nation, where the color lines are trying to become non-existant for all nationalities. Especially with my man at 1600 Pennsylvania. I can't wait to see what the next 4 years, and beyond will bring.

I agree with this. I don't like the way our country is heading. I sometimes say that I think that I was born in the wrong time period. So, I'd choose 1913.

This exactly. 1913 is a little farther back than I would ideally go, but I am definitely a child of the past.

2113.

Although I love history, I wouldn't willingly want to live in a time where I wasn't allowed to vote (the tamer of the issues) all because of my gender.

I couldn't live with those "moral values".

I would probably died of gallbladder disease as a teenager had been born in 1913. However, I may never had gallbladder disease to begin with thanks to a diet consisting more of whole foods. Ultimately, I think I might've been happier with a simpler lifestyle with more stringent morals. There are so many options coming at all of us so fast that it can be chaotic and isolating. When it comes to dating and career I think I would've preferred yesterday's pace better. I would've hated the lack of medical technology and prejudice of the period though.

I choose 2113

Without modern medicine if I had another child I would die, without birth control I would likely have another child. I'm not keen on an early death.
