And .. I don't know. I suppose I might go for nineteenth because it's the nearest but still, there was a good deal of suffering in the nineteenth century, especially for those of a 'lower' social class - which I guess my family was. Even the upper classes did not always have much fun . So maybe a different era? Perhaps Roman? Though then I might have been a slave which would not have been fun either
I heard a bird cry, sharp and free. My name is Jordan.
That doesn't make much sense to me without a geographic referent.
I would like to have been around for the erection of the Ring of Brodgar, for instance. That is around 2957 BCE. But, not just anywhere. 2957 BCE in Patagonia might not be a real smart selection, if you get my drift. So, I'd select 2957 BCE in Orkney, which, as I understand it, would have been at the northern end of the British peninsula, northwest of the Doggerland marshes.
I'd rather just stay where I am anyhow. There's enough discovery and excitement in this era to be honest. Though I would like to make a quick trip to the future to see if and when we finally get rid of Trump and how far he managed to **** up the world before he left...

There's widespread support for Brexit and so I don't think it can be undone unless it's a disaster. A soft Brexit will not be a disaster but a 'no deal' Brexit will be. So do we pray for a disaster so that we have a chance of rejoicing Europe or do we just accept that the British government has messed it up again?
