If one day a random time machine appeared and it only gave you the option to live in the victorian area, would you take it? I know that if you're my race then you would probably be a laborer or servant but in this hypothentical world everyone would be middle class or wealthy regardless of race. I really like the victorian era so I would obviously take that chance. If you had a different era that you prefer then feel free to add that.

I would love to travel through time. It would just be amazing to be able to go back and see the world as it was in times gone by. I imagine it would be an eye-opener too, we could certainly learn a lot from it. As for whether I would want to go back and live permanently in the past, no thanks and not least of all the Victorian era. No modern technology and conveniences, no modern medicine, if you're a woman you would be a second class citizen, if you're not heterosexual you would be marginalised, most food and drink items available today weren't available then, the list goes on.
We tend to paint a romantic view of the past but if you were to go back and actually experience it reality would kick in and you'd see things weren't so great. Now if you were to ask me about living in the far future, that would be quite tempting.2
