When would you like to have been born

We (people) have been around here (earth) for a while. If you had the choice, when and where would your choose to be born. You could be a knight or monk. Take your pick. Where would you be?


Personally, I think I would have done well in the states around 1970. That way, I grow up in the information boom.

I like living now since I don't have to deal with nazis, dictators, british empire, french aristocrats, the cold war, roman empire, persian empire, ghengis khan, crusaders, feudal japan, colonists, spanish empire or barbarian eras.

A thousand years from now. Maybe humanity will finally be extinct by then. (Except for the bloodline that led to my birth, of course.)
