The 1960s and 1970s look like the most interesting decades. Of the two, I'd probably pick the 1970s.<br />
<br />
It was a world of exuberant colour, style and unbridled excitement. It seems like a universe away from our sterile, bland, colourless and cynical internet-obsessed world of the 21st century.

I'd want to live back with the Spartans and Ancient greeks because back then, they worked for what they want and lived as if everyday was their last. Today there are to many selfish people expecting to get everything handed to them...

I'd want to live back with the spartans and ancient greeks, the lifestyle was alot better in my opinion as today there are to many people that dont work for what they want and expect to get everything handed to them...

I want to live in a hippie nudist colony</p>
<p>
and wear flowers in my hair</p>
<p>
maybe then I wouldn't feel so naked</p>
<p>
maybe the substances take us</p>
<p>
to places we did not plan to be-</p>
<p>
sometimes the bars are like prisons</p>
<p>
keep drinking like you hold the key</p>
<p>
&nbsp;</p>
<p>
the pre-hipster hippies of the early '60s had love and peace in their hearts, not written on their tie-dyes or mixed in the patchouli</p>

<p>
i dont want to live drems..... i want to live more decades if possiable?</p>
<p>
bcz&nbsp; i want every thing unexpected</p>

<p>

<p>
19th c. - 1840</p>

<p>
17th c. - 1620</p>
<p>
16th. c.- 1500</p>

<strong>Definately the 60's free love, sex, love, peace, girls burn your bras, hippies, flower power, loads of LSD (acid), the nation was at peace, apart from the vietnam war, so many young lives lost for nothing, what a great shame..i live in the UK so wasn't in anyway involved but my heart goes out to the families of people who fought and died in that horrid conflict!!</strong></p>

<p>
If we can just get through this one I'll be glad.</p>

<p>
I think I'm going to be the rarity here. I want to live in the 1940's. It's a long story but the short of it is I've always felt an affinity for WWII and that era. Other then (as crazy as it sounds) a link to a past live existence have no reason other then that but I've always felt drawn to that time period. The uniforms, the women in dresses, the silk stocking with lines, German Lugar pistols. It's like looking towards a lover's picture years later and you remember how you felt. Something inside me feels this warmth and sense of belonging when I think of that time period or I'm around anything having to do with it.</p>

<p>
The 60's, so I could&nbsp;go to&nbsp;Woodstock this time, and get enlightened. ; )&nbsp;</p>

<p>
The 90's so&nbsp;&nbsp;I&nbsp; could have so I'd have a second&nbsp; chance&nbsp;with my love</p>

<p>
The 60's I really cant remember the last time.</p>

<p>
Which ever one that trust nobody is not in. Sure filth!</p>

<p>
the 1920s where women could be sexy and work at the same time. where women were getting a chance to be more than beautiful. you can still be tuff stuff and be curvy, no rules and all the perks.</p>

<p>
The 60's and 70's are what I miss because people were more closer,they were more nicer. They had more trust.&nbsp;Kids played all day in neighborhoods. Remember playing&nbsp;under&nbsp;sprinklers, tree houses,&nbsp;&nbsp;camping overnight in the back yards&nbsp;during the summer?&nbsp;Snowsuits in the winter sledding and ice skating..... then hot chocolate with your friends. Playing board games,&nbsp;Barbies, marbles, pixie stixs, jacks, Slinky, Old Maid cards, GI Joe, those little green plastic army men, Lincoln Logs, chemistry sets,&nbsp;erector sets, pogo sticks, penney candy, Beeman's gum, Kool-aid popsycles, peddlepushers, tandum bikes, 45's and the top 10 lists, and the beat goes on by (Sonny and Cher).&nbsp; The decade I would&nbsp;wish i had lived......the 40's because&nbsp;I like swing and the big band music....like " In The Mood" by The Glen Miller&nbsp;Band.</p>

<p>
The 60's "peace out man, peeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeace" !</p>

<p>
<strong>WHAT IDIOT WITH AN I.Q. OF A PEANUT, WOULD WISH TO LIVE IN A PAST DECADE???!!!&nbsp; YOU FUCC'N CONFORMIST!!!!!!!!!!!!!<br /><br />
</strong></p>
<p>
ME AND THE HANDFUL OF GENIUSES WOULD PICK THE YEAR OF 3000 or WAY beyond. An advanced planet, utilizing over 70% of its brain power, no classism, racism, no wars, no crimes. Unlike this bullshit full of fake *** conformists.</p>
<p>
I detest these stupid *** people who think they know **** (ULTRA PRETENTIOUS--FAKE IT TIL THEY MAKE IT) and don't know ****. dumb smart fucc's!!!! i wanna new drug who will get me high 24/7 (ONLY you can get prescribed), but not thrown in jail for running over old people shuffling across the street--basically old people should not be put in homes, but taken very good care of with love and have fun. i want a REAL MAN that can fucc me like no other, i want a man with no sissy in him who is just as real/crazy/funny/clean, and have the TRUE gift of discerning. Someone who loves me/himself/family to death. We'll travel to wherever we want; curse out mothafucca's who do/say dumb **** immediately. Take one look at each other and know what we're thinking. We'll lay low, use our intelligence and make **** loads of money, being great humanitarians quietly; laughing at these retards--never inviting them to our house, only 1% who we've observed, conversed in every form and eventually never trust but let them come on in. Above all praying that a higher being curse our enemies. OH also have my own damn bedroom/closet/car/account, and bathroom. We will fucc, but sometimes I don't want to be bothered, and neither does he. So, 50's (FAKE), 60's (FAKE AND FAKER--MAN HAS NEVER BEEN TO THE MOON--YOU DUMB FUCCS!), 70's (BULLSHIT AND A SUPER JOKE), 80's (ILLUMINATI/SECRET SOCIETIES PROGRAMMING TO THE 33RD DEGREE), 90's (LETS PARTY AND FORGET OUR TROUBLES), 2000's (GET READY TO DIE, DUMB *****--TOOK YOUR 1HN1 FLU SHOT--ROBOTS--PREPARE FOR THE RFID CHIP, AMEROS, BLACKWATER CREWS KICKING IN YOUR DOOR 3 AM SNATCHING YOU AND YOUR KIDS UP, RED/BLUE/YELLOW LISTS ARE READY FOR MILITARY PERSONNEL TO FOLLOW ORDERS AND TAKE YOU TO THE OVER 120 EMPTY PRISON FACILITIES TO THROW YOU IN A PLASTIC CASKET AND INCINERATE YOU/BRAINWASH YOU INTO FOLLOWING).</p>

The 80's. I loved the clothes, the raves and&nbsp;the way of thinking that they had. They had the best party music. I'm pretty much and 80's kid stuck in an 90's kids body.</p>

<p>
the beauty of the 1920s is just delightful!</p>

<p>
BC 1269</p>

<p>
The 70's to be with my husband who passed away, I would love to be with him just one more time</p>

<p>
I'd trod back to the 70's in my Earth shoes and bell-bottoms.</p>

<p>
The 1950's.&nbsp; I love real nylon seamed stockings.</p>

<p>
The 40's .. when Americans backed the troops and the president. Movies were great!</p>

<p>
In the early 1600s, there is much to be experienced then before computers, electricity and dare I say it?&nbsp; *gulp* plumbing</p>

<p>
The 70s were that last of the old ways and the beginning of the modern. I'd go back if I could.</p>

<p>
I wish i wish i was in the 2000's wait...I am in the 2000's i'm a cybor robot from the future that came back..&nbsp; so i guess i answered the question by traveiling back in time in the first place!</p>

<p>
80's fashion music.. inteio design.. love it!!..</p>

<p>
i go with lilyofthenile....couldnt have said it better...well said lily :)</p>

<p>
The 40's.....would have wanted to be a pin-up :)</p>

<p>
Todays!! With all the advance there is in technology & medicine, who in heaven&acute;s name, would choose another decade??? Yay for technology!!!!</p>

<p>
If were up to me the 70's, that way I could remained my mother and father, of things to come.&nbsp; Like eating right for(him), and for my mother, not for laying in the sun, and using the suntan beds, because you'll develop cancer, and that's what she died from. And for myself, I would have tried to stop from begin raped, from a classmate.&nbsp; And would have studied harder, so I could have been better in school and better educated.</p>

<p>
The 90s......it was a personally turbulant time for me at times, but it was also life changing, personal growth,&nbsp;memory making&nbsp;time for me as well.</p>

<p>
i think the 80's was a great decade. lots of variety in music and clothes. no STD's to worry about, and life seem to be a little simpler and of course i would still be in my 30's lol</p>

<p>
i would like to go back to the 60s and 70s i liked the music and the fashion</p>
<p>
&nbsp;</p>

<p>
I would of loved to live in the 1920's Flapper era! But of course I would want to be wealthy during that time period or it wouldn't be so much fun! I love the fashion, the music, and there were great dances like the charleston. And it seemed like back when times were so much simpler....</p>

<p>
i want to live in the 70 s&nbsp; so i can be a teenbaby and wear diapers</p>

<p>
I want to badly to live in the 1980's. I love the clothes and the hair. Nobody cared if you looked tacky!! Hey the tackier the better!</p>

<p>
<strong>definitely the 60's.&nbsp; i was a young teenager then, living just south of San Fransisco.&nbsp; Haight/Ashbury was my old stomping grounds.&nbsp; it was an exciting generation, with the hippi movement, and the best music ever made.&nbsp; i fancied myself to be a hippi, but i wasn't promiscuous, and i didn't drink or do drugs, so i wasn't a very good one.&nbsp; the clothes were so beautiful in the 60's with British Invasion.&nbsp; the Beatles ruled!&nbsp; between the race riots, and the Viet Nam protest marches,&nbsp; and the assasinations of the Kennedys and Martin Luther King, the 60's were dramatic and amazing.</strong></p>

<p>
Like to live in the NOW era.......</p>

<p>
Hard to pick just one. Each decade had its share of troubles and glory. If there was a decade where mankind treated each other with kindness, respect. Then that's the decade for me!</p>

<p>
The 60's!</p>
<p>
Simon Cowell move over, Beatle mania looks so much more fun.</p>

I must admit I loved the TOP gun era. The 80's.

The decade when pandora was yet to open th box of troubles ;P
