    If you could travel back in time, knowing you couldn't come back, what year would you choose?

    I would choose the moment when it all started with a big bang. As I know I would not be coming back to present, so I feel it is the best place to be, to be able to watch the genesis of our universe. I always have this fascination towards this unending space.

    The another option would be those times when life was not as complicated as it is today. With so much going around, we hardly get any time to rejig ourselves. So, any year which can provide me with an unending sense of freedom and bliss would be preferred, what about you crankalicious? Would love to hear about your answer too?

    if i cant back to the present, i will choose the year 2005, where i have a wrong man who ruin my entire personality....so that i can change it...so that i will never be like this....so that maybe, i will be happy in the future.. i chose this also because i wanted to be the best i can be which i never did before.. so that i have options - to be happy.

    Well, if I had to choose, that time would be the era of classics, i.e. BC period. Every one was shepherd with no worldly worries to nag you and the ambience was peaceful at large

    I would choose the 70´s for then I could change some things that I did not really want to do and I could change from a very shy one to the person I am now. Besides that I love the Bee Gees and the ABBA´s.

      Ya, Krrish, witnessing the big bang would be an ultimate experience, to be at the moment of divine genesis. What do you say?

    If I get to keep my knowledge I would probably take the 70s.
    But am I going to be my current age? or am I  starting over in which case I would take the late 50s.
    The question isn't very clear to me.

    I would love to go back to the period when I was growing up between the ages of 10-20.
    My grandparents always took my sister and I to DeRuyter Lake in New York State on the last day of school.  They rented a cottage for the full 10 weeks of our summer vacation.
    I LIVED for the last day of school, I actually got homesick for the lake. 
    This was, for me, the very best time of my life.  Things were so simple then, unhurried. 
    Today is rush, rush, rush.  The age of technology has advantages, but it has made life busier and less private.  I so miss the simple times.  Blessings, Sparklea smile

    I would go back to Atlantis because I believe that the Continent of Atlantis actually existed. All we have to so on are myths, but so much of our old cultures such as Egypt of the Bible and the Golden Age of Greece are based upon remnants of those myths. Atlantis is said to have been a very spiritual age where everyone enjoyed peace, tranquility, and beauty until it was disturbed by the Sons of Belial whose evil destroyed it. I would love to visit Atlantis before the Sons came.
    If I couldn't go back to Atlantis, I would like to go to Savannah or Charleston of the 1840s, but only if I could be an aristocrat.

    I would grab some military sonic weaponry, a proximity alarm, one fresh steak, a comfortable saddle, a big bottle of off spray, a water purifier, my cellphone loaded with music, a knife, and a kinetic/solar generator.  Head back to the upper Cretaceous Period 66 million years ago.

    Spray myself with some off, battle away a Tyrannosaurus from its young with the sonic hardware, and befriend the young with the steak. 

    When it became old enough to saddle I would and explore a beautiful world with commercial free tunes.  Use the proximity alarm to help with camp defenses while sleeping.
