Where would you live? You can live in the past in any place, can't choose future or present.

I'd choose Ancient Rome, what about you?

I wouldn't mind seeing the first half of the 1990s (I was around back then, but I was too young to really know about the world).

In the list of best animes by the japanese citizen it was voted the number 99.

It shocked many people this was in the list and that Slam Dunk was number 10, above Sain Seiya and other animes people often say are bigger.

:I don't know about top 10, but it would definitely make a top 100.

its just a plain fun anime. especially if you like cars.

Of all the "sports" anime the only real one I like more is Eyeshield 21. And that's because Hiruma is a bosssss.

Not so many people like it, they feel its too simplistic, i liked for how siple it was, besides it leaves a less macho hero and a more like apathic one.

@deathpoolthet1000: I mean, I don't know how complicated you can get with racing in the first place lol.

But yeah Takumi is pretty cool. Its so refreshing when the protagonist isn't your typical "try hard outcast, that's had a tough life" etc etc. That stereotype is over used sooooo much in anime. Its probably the biggest negative of it really.

@chibi_cute: Atlantis never really existed, in the first book that ever mentions it Plato stated very clearly that it was a purely hypothetical (Not Real) place. Basically it was like Narnia or Latveria.

Being black, I don't really have that many options. About 300 years are a total no-no, and before that is iffy at best. For the past my best bet would probably be around the time of ancient Greece. They were far less racist back then

Were there even black people IN ancient Greece?? And don't forget, slavery existed then too, you just have to pray you were in some what of an upper class.

Slavery was more an everybody thing back in Ancient Greece, pretty much if you weren't rich and lived near a hostile village there was a good 50/50 chance you could end up a slave back then.

Yup, that's why I said you better pray you were in some type of upper class, which honestly, I myself probably wouldn't be in. Plus, I wouldn't wanna live in any time where people thought the world was flat and you could die from a paper cut.

Yes there were. And slavery was different back then, it was no where near as cruel and brutal as it was in recent times. Compared to the 1800's or so, slavery in ancient Greece would be like being a Butler. Also, whites were slaves as much as the blacks back then and blacks weren't necessarily looked down upon

Why wouldn't you? With the knowledge you have now you could easily become one of the best scholars in the world. You'll be rich, famous, most likely immune to all disease, taller than nearly everyone, and you could fake being a clairvoyant lol

I really don't think anyone would believe the 'future knowledge" I would have. The whole "Heliocentric" model that the sun was the center of the universe to ages to catch on, many thought it was crazy. So here I come, out of nowhere, claiming that sicknesses actually came from tiny microscopic organisms, that the world is round, that the universe is endless, that the gods aren't behind natural occurences etc, I'd be labelled a heretic or a madman. And immune to all diseases? I would know what I know now, and that ain't much about medicine.

Know, oh prince, that between the years when the oceans drank Atlantis and the gleaming cities, and the years of the rise of the Sons of Aryas, there was an age undreamed of, when shining kingdoms lay spread across the world like blue mantles beneath the stars.

Nemedia, Ophir, Brythunia, Hyperborea, Zamora with its dark-haired women and towers of spider-haunted mystery, Zingara with its chivalry, Koth that bordered on the pastoral lands of Shem, Stygia with its shadow-guarded tombs, Hyrkania whose riders wore steel and silk and gold.

But the proudest kingdom of the world was Aquilonia reigning supreme in the dreaming West.

Hither came Rising Bean the American, stubbly beard, shifty eyed, rifle in hand, a BAMF, a warrior, a slayer, with profound sadness and merry wiles, to tread the jeweled thrones of the Earth under his booted feet.

And if that isn't possible, I'd go to ye old Wild West. Where the dames are swell, the firearms not generally so accurate, and the heat sure is hot.

@the_stegman:

As long as you passed high school without too much difficulty, hell middle school even, i'm sure you'll still be smarter than 99% of the people back then. And I didn't mean go back and ruin their whole way of thinking as far as religion goes, but the ancient greeks prized knowledge and if you go back and present a scholarly case as to why you think the world is round i'm sure you'll be respected....somewhat lol

Or burned at the stake for heresy. Whoops! wrong time. But in ancient Greece the entire justice system revolved around suspicion. Someone could literally move from town to town mass murdering for years without ever being suspected by authorities.

@buttersdaman000: Actually the Ancient Greeks were the people who first brought up the concept of a round Earth and despite common belief by the time Columbus sailed to the new world almost no one actually thought the Earth was flat anymore.
