if i had to choose past. not before the 50's though, without modern medicine, u could go to the morgue from a fuckin scrape. 50's, 60', 70's, 80's. everything just seemed a lot more laid back, people were more free spirited, and i'd wanna try quaaludes.
Re: Would you rather go back in time or forwards in time?
Past. Definitely. How cool would that be, especially already knowing some of the history of whatever time you're going back to. I feel like the future might be a bit overwhelming, although it would be pretty incredible.
