I prefer the present, in the medieval era we were all threatened with death if we didn't follow a certain hate religion, now the only things threatend are large buildings and tube trains.

Oh man, so many people have those romantic imaginations about how medieval times were. You wouldn`t wanna live back then. You really wouldn`t.

They're called periods. <---- That thing there.

And, after five minutes of smelling shit sitting in the middle of the street, you woulden't want to live in those times ever, ever again.

I would like to live in Roman times, if and only if; there was no famine, no crap stuff that smells bad (Romans had sewer systems...), If it was fairly peaceful, If I lived excluded, by myself, and etc (And more)...

If you were to live anywhere, just make sure you were from the upper class.

As for the Medieval Era... no. There are a lot of romantic notions of that time era, and it was just terrible. Sure, it may've had more wilderness, but rampant diseases, unclean cities, peasant revolts, abusive landlords, etc...

I'm thinking you're wanting a fantastical medieval age, but you can't have it both ways. Can't edit out some part of it. Lets just see the wonderful times of the Medieval Era (and I'm guessing you are referring to Europe).

-Most of the European continent was stuck as peasants, situation got worse as you went eastward. -Wars revolving around sieges and slamming peasants into one another -Pillaging by warlords -Huns -Mongols -Peasant uprisings -Quartering was all the rage -Heretics -Lack of true education

I wouldn't mind living in the upper class say in Charles I and Henry IV, and such (expand this to other areas like Harun al-Rashid and Selahaddin, ... but nothing there really was exciting. I will admit some fortress and castles like Mont Saint-Michel were impressive though.

I would personally like to see how things were at the turn of the 19th century as it got into the 20th (before WWI), but again, as a man of the upper class. Sure, it was polluted, but there was a certain charm back then as the world seemed to be shrinking and the spirit of adventure, balloons, mystery, and mustaches.

I'm much happier with this centur or the last one. Medieval times might have been less spoiled when it came to landsapes but with the way the under classes (peasants) lived etc. THanks but no thanks. IN the upper class it might have not been so bad but to live in that era... nah. Maybe for a week or two as a nobleman traveling the country with his guards and such, kinda like a holiday and a handy escape/reset button incase things go wrong... and with such an option I wouldn't min traveling back to the time when the Roman EMpire still stood strong and such.

But overall, I'm happy enough living in this era. ANd I guess people in the future wil think the same (the20- 21st century was interesting but I like things better now). Giving up all the technology and class structure (liberties and such) would probably be difficult for anybody from "any" era that would look back. Hell, some might not like it because the god/religion they believe in wouldn't really be much appriciated in an other era...

Hey! If the Hobbits could do it after Sauruman Scoured the Shire, then we can do it too! Bob the Demolisher can we do it! Bob the Demolisher yes we can! Anyway, I believe that giving up industry would be a great move. Also, advanced life support that keeps people with very fatal diseases that will die anyway need to go. That way, the population will be lower and less fraught with genetic diseases. Basically, think the Middle Ages with non-insane rulers and proper immunizations/basic medicine. Oh yes, and no religious beliefs, as they tend to kill millions of people.
