    I would like to know what actually happened in the past, maybe like a "visitor". I would not want to be born in the past. And to be honest, who know's what the future will be.

    @nilex If you were born "in the future"  it will be present for you, and you would not know "what happens" because you do not have the perspective of the past, hence the future for you now it will be present for you then. Maybe you are already "in the future" smile

    I think it would be terrific to time travel. If I was born in the past it would not be too long ago as I like comps. ..and mod cons. Think I would quite like the future:)

    I think it'd be cool being born sometime around the renaissance.

    Yes, all the time. I'd like to have enjoyed the sixties, and the twenties as a teenager. I think being a teen around 1976 to 1982 would have been fantastic for the music. In terms of other times ... well, I'd love to find out who, if anyone, King Arthur was and meet him, but I expect he'd stick a sword through me.

    I've felt many times that I was meant to be a child of the sixties. My way of life and mindset lend very well to the world in that time.The music, love and psychedelic lifestyle is alive and well in me today But at the same time, IO was meant to live in the world today, so being born at a different time would destroy my whole plan. SO in the end I am thankful that I was born exactly when I was.

    I used to, but not so much any more. Just imagining going to a doctor at any point in history other than the last 50 years is enough to make me grateful to have been born in our time.

    It would be cool to go back, however, and do some quick visits to other times. It would be interesting to hang out with Jesus and the Buddha, see the Beatles before they were popular, or see my parents when they were young.

    Definitely the future! I would want to see us find out more about space, and perhaps encounter another sentient civilization (aliens!). Space is the final frontier, and it's also by far the biggest...there's so much knowledge I would like to know.
