Do you wish you were born in another time? Did you want to be born in the 70s? or the 1800s? I am a futurist so I want to be born in the year 2050 or even beyond that.

Nah. I was born in 1993, wouldn't trade it for another year or decade. I, and anyone else around my age, has gotten to see some cool things, and we're living in a pretty cool time.

yeah, i really like the past... how people travel by horses and stuff. and ships, and there were more natural views.
but i can't imagine living in a time with no antibiotics... or anaesthesia... or limited medical knowledge :S

i'm scared of the future because of global warming and pollution and overpopulation.

so i like where i am right now. it's not too hot and not too cold, it's just right.

I'm perfectly fine being born when I was. I get to grow up with some amazing technology and with some pretty awesome TV. Currently, we know a lot more scientifically than we did in past centuries which is useful. As well as, less racism and generally more rights and equality for everyone. In my opinion, the noughties had the best cartoons. Obviously, I grew up on them and not say, 90's cartoons. Don't get me wrong, Rugrats is my all time favourite show and I love Simpsons, hey arnold, recess etc. I could go on forever about the 00's cartoons I love though. I'd hate to be born in a time that is typically thought of as the future. Life would seem so artificial and easy. I'd love to see something of the sorts in my lifetime though.

I wish I was an actual 90's kid. I know quite a bit about 90's pop culture, and it just looks so cool that it makes me want to be a 90's kid. I'm also just kind of ashamed of this generation... (i.e. Turn Down for What, Twerking-- even though twerking was invented way before friggin' Miley Cyrus ever did it--, the "challenges"-- Eraser challenge, cinnamon challenge, Kylie Jenner challenge--, etc.)

Most people throughout history are going to agree that they were born into the best time period simply because that's all they've ever known. ... except for people born during wars or plagues.

It doesn't matter when you're born, because there's always gonna be that "I wish I was born earlier" crap.

Therefore, now is fine.

In a time where people aren‘t judged that much by their sexual orientation, identity, skin colour and stuff like that. I know there has to be people who are like that, but why could it not be the minority?

I am fine with being born now, even if I'm not really a 90's kid I just wish I was born in Japan, because the culture and anguage is intriguing, and not just what you see in anime

I would have loved to be born in a futuristic time.

Sign me up for the point where we've perfected human biological immortality and established a functional, sustainable post-scarcity economy.

I'm fine with the here and now but in spirit of the topic then I would have to go with the ancient Rome. I always love looking at the architect from that period.
