    … what age or decade would you like to have a butchers at?

    ive just been reading up on Viking times and it seems really interesting times. but i think i would probably choose victorian times to go back to. the culture, art and design of the victorian era fascinates me.. if not scares me a little.

    I’m liking the Victorians too. Something about the way they carried themselves, and their trailblazing in all the available technologies of the time age gets me. Those are things you can get your head around…big machines full of pistons and cogs and so on, you can see how they work.

    Not like today with all these smooth little plastic boxes full of witchery…g’ah!

    But if I had a choice, I’d go back to when ships were made of wood….I’m thinking Treasure Island type stuff…Harrrrrrrr!

    For this time travel, do you get protection against all dangerous situations, like a sonic screwdriver / invisibility cloak / bullet, flame and explosion proof Union Flag underpants made from organic fair trade cotton and sewn together by a multicultural workers co-op in Hove (or all of these things?)

    without them TBH I’d rather stay in the present day (though the 60s seem the most promising, but I’d not want to be a ethnic minority in them days, life was way harder than today)

    Hi All ,
    I would go back to the time Jesus was ment/was around , find out the truth of what really happened and then come back and tell the real story and not the one that religion would have you believe . So next time some religious fanatic started spouting their usual hate or what you should live like etc , i can come back and say ” your talking shite and ” . Pike Tom Us whens the time machine gonna be ready ? i feel the need to give it a spin ๐Ÿ™‚

    I would not wish to go back in time unless I was invincible and could leave whenever I could, then, probably the Victorian age. Possibly Tudor.

    Hi Lt Luna ,
    Those Capitalist bastards even changed how history was told !!!! , oh your better of now than you was when you were a peasent in the field . Really ……Funny how the truth isnt always told when it may put a dimmer view on life today and its working practices !!! . LT Luna just clear your desk and go to sleep and if your boss says anything just show him the link ๐Ÿ˜‰ .

    less work but that don’t mean their life was any better! they wouldn’t have shops full of any food you like, games, films, internet, healthcare etc…

    Hi Poly ,
    I think the point of what LT Luna was saying is …..back then they worked hard but had more rest breaks and life was less rushed . As opposed to how things are now !!!! .
