    Mine:

    Don't yet have one. Timeless :-D.

    So what is yours? 50's? 70's? 80's?

    1800's?

    EDIT:

    I spelled 'favorite' originally in the title the American way . Changed to 'favourite'

    I love the '50s, that is, the 2050s. I love technology and can't help but get excited like a little kid on Christmas when I think about the possibilities on offer in the near future. I would gladly extend my life by a few hundred years if I could, just to experience the technology!

    Alternatively, I would love to be able to travel the world in ancient times and prehistoric times. I don't care that much about our recent history.

    I think i'd like the 1920's, before the crash. As long as i wasn't poor, black or female. Think it'd be much better if i was exploiting the above.

    When I was young I always wanted to be an archeaologist. That never panned out though. Just recently I began getting more and more interested in the nature of the universe, time and space and why things happened the way they did. Actually just the other day I was thinking to myself "What if I was given 1 wish?" Then I thought "Ahh that would be easy, I would just wish to know all there is about the nature of the universe"

    So basically I'm very interested in the future as well to see where things go and such but if I was only given a choice as to the past of what to pick I would probably have to pick the time period of Egypt or the time period of the Mayans/Aztecs/etc...

    the 1940's. The look of it all, the fashion, the hair, the architecture, the movies, the music...all of it.

    Moses and Akhenaten, that is an excellent book about the period. It theorises that Moses and the pharaoh Akhenaten are in fact one in the same.
