    For the lifestyle and the music I would rewind to the late 50's, for myself I would rewind to when my kids were small and not make the same mistakes.

    Rewind to when the children were very young and try to get it right a second time. Also enjoy what I did get right all over again.

    As long as I can come back to the present after a look around, I'd say rewind.

    I believe that covid will be with us in one way or another for many years to come.

    I wouldn’t mind going back to past decades but I think I would not want to live before 1950ish. I think before then things (specifically medicine and law and order) were not advanced enough and I would not feel secure. 1950-1980 I think I’d enjoy the way of life, the society, the politics and the entertainment. And of course not forgetting the cars back when it wasn’t considered taboo to drive round with a big engined vehicle.

    That said I wouldn’t mind being a Roman if I was one of the proper Roman citizens and not a slave. They were very advanced with their technology and forward thinking for their time.

    I honestly can’t really decide if I think things were better in the old days or not. Modern times has its flaws absolutely but I’m sure old times did as well.

    Not sure I’d want to go forward as I would be leaping into the unknown! At least going back I know a little bit about it as it’s history!

    Interesting poll @Tori_Scope, thank you for sharing.

    I agree with @Ross_Scope, as long as I could come back and live in the here and now. I believe we can learn from the past to change the future and it would be good to get a feel for how things real were in the past. Thank you.

    I loved my teenage years and the thought of a revisit sounds exciting. I suppose its a time when we I was young fit and healthy, and maybe I could just tweak a thing or two that I remember.
    The future is there for all and hopefully we will get to see a great deal of it and find it as exciting as we found our past. I would never had believed anyone if they had told me about all the Tech we have now, like mobile phones PC's and the internet. Who knows what next!
    We have memories and searching them is like going back. The present is what we make it, as is the near future. The further future is a mystery, but maybe exciting to discover.

    Press rewind, definitely.

    That's because nostalgia for the past gets me every time :)

    But there again, as the saying goes, the past is a nice place to visit but not always a good place to stay!
