it was funny my sister said she'd like to live back in the middle ages. now, of course it would be cool if it were like the movies, but she is, uneducated and forgets the many diseases, low life span, and the fact that anyone who wanted to slash you prolly would. but besides that stuff i prolly would want to live back then too. learn to use a blade, go on crazy adventures through unexplored europe, all that good stuff.

Well, you yourself would be fine. Your medical knowledge would surpass all those of that time, You would know about how to cook food and store it properly, you would know to bathe, and you would be educated more than probably anyone around.

plus there would be a good abundance of wild things to eat that arent diseased or any thing and the water would prolly still be good. i thought it was funny how my sister wanted to go there tho, shes so, unintelligent, that shed prolly adapt to their ways pretty fast, forgetting all she learned in our time. (even tho she didnt learn much)

I would love it. If I survived the plagues and murderors. Two corrections for Scipio:

You would know about how to cook food and store it properly,

They knew how to cook already. An example would be some dead thing thust on a spit and put over a fire. They had moderate storage capabilities.

you would know to bathe

They also bathed in the Middle Ages. Though it was only the rich and powerful people who got to (usually).

well, the stored food in open air to prevent the plauge, but it really made it worse. And bathing was frowned upon.

You are correct abbout the food storage, but it still was storage, and not always outside in the open. The Greeks bathed 500 years earlier and they were looked up to for it. With thier beautiful big baths. I don't think it would be considered witchcraft by most people in the Middle Ages.
