    Myself I wish I could've gotten to experience the 30s-mid 70s here. The rise, high point, and decline of Americana.

    I wish I could've had my best sexual years in the 70's all that free love and no aids :(

    It was every bit as wonderful as you suspect it was. ;):D

    I am confident that I am in the right time and right place to do what God expects me to do in this lifetime.


    I used to think it would be fun to live in the world of Laura Ingalls Wilder's childhood (the 1880s). This was mostly due to my childhood love of all "girlie" clothes, especially granny dresses. They looked much cuter on elementary school girls, like me in the early 70s, than on the dirty hippie adult women that made them into a fashion trend. I like electricity and running water too much to want that now.

    I always have the feeling that I'm living in the wrong present. That is to say, I always feel like this reality is actually a crazy twilight zone alternate-reality.

    It's like when people write alternate history books, what if's, and the scenarios are always insane and ridiculous. I feel like this history I am stuck in is one of these crazy alternate histories.

    It's just too bad that even if this is a crazy alternate reality, there is no such thing as a "correct" version of reality.

    What present do you think you belong in? Or what time period?

    guess it depends on what theory of reality you believe in, Many Worlds theory or not

    I sometimes feel like I've died or something and this is Limbo or something, or I just respawned in another universe. I also mind fuck myself with those "What is your life is just a coma dream?" kind of lines of thinking. There's a lot of times where by all means, I should've died but somehow survived.
