    I'd choose to exist the exact moment the earth was created.  I don't even car how it was created.  As soon as life was sustained, I want to be there, so I can etch my name on a mountain side.  "The Jiggins was here, 01/01/00"

    I'd consider jumping into the future ( the year 3000).
    Most people are likely to want go backwards in time because they are pesimistic about the future.
    However history has taught us the future generally brings more good than bad overall. There is progress made with every generation.

    We're living longer, finding better medicines,creating inventions which no one dreamed were possible just 100 years ago.
    By the year 3000 we may be traveling back and forth to other planets, living in peace, and possibly evolved to using a higher percentage of our minds.

    The past may have been a blast but the unknown is where it's at! A positive person always looks forward!

    Mid Evil times, life was simple back then, not a rat race.

    I want to jump into the future maybe 100 years from now. I want to see the innovation of technology at that time.

    I would have to do some "time shopping".  The only time I have personal experience with in the past, that I would like to revisit, is the late 1960s.  As to  the future, who knows.  A time machine where you could check out various eras would be the way to go.  Be a "time tourist" visting many times, and pick the time you then find best in your personal experience.  Just like you would pick a state or country to live in, if you were able to evaluate many first, then pick.

    I would definitely stay in the Present, because it is actually not that bad if you compare to Middle ages with all the deseases and wars, as well as WWI&II and other time periods.... BUT...I would love to just check it out. To go back to 50s, 60s and 70s for example. I would love to see Beatles, Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry, Ray Charles. etc live. Also would want to visit Medieval Europe with all the crazy outfits they had.

    But I would live in NOW, thats for sure.
