I'd go back 200 so I could relive my youth.

But actually, I'd go forward.

I would go back 200 years so I can experience the good times of that Era.

the future is too scary, I'd like to go back but at 51 years old I would probably be past my life span. I'd still go back.

I'd go back. I've always been fascinated with pioneer living. I probably wouldn't be good at it because I hate dresses and the lack of deodorant would bother me plus probably an inability to shave pit hair but I think families were much closer and morals were better, which is appealing to me.

cruxan you should have made this a poll. That would have been interesting. I suspect by overwhelming majortity the vote would want to go back. I do think 200 years is pushing it. 100 years would be a good number.

I honestly do not believe there will be a world in 200 years. Govt will get too big and explode from too much corruption and control over the people. It ain't gona be a George Jetsons world like some would believe.

At least there was a past and it was a good one.

My name is H.G. Wells and I came here on a time machine of my own design.

War of the Worlds. What a great movie.
