My great grandmother was born in 1888 in Marshall, MI and died in 1986 in Birmingham. I have always thought that kind of stretch would have been the most amazing. To go from horse and buggy to landing on the moon and personal computers and everything in between would have been an insanely exciting lifetime. She took a trip around the world in the 1910s and saw the pyramids, married well and got to spend WWI in Hawaii, had her daughter disappoint her by marrying a polack from Hamtramack who made good anyway by becoming an engineer and fighting in Patton's army, was part of the first female class at MAC...saw three generations follow her to MSU....on and on. So much change must have been astounding to live through.
It's weird having been a kid with an atari 1600 and pre-cable to the smart phone age, but that ain't got shit on no electricity to the space age.
Just wait. some really freaky technology is gonna happen in the next 20-50 years if u can stay alive to see it.
Nanotech, robotics, genetics, and artificial intelligence are gonna f*** sh** up.

Draymond Green, Magic Johnson, and Oscar Robertson are the only players to have two triple-doubles in the NCAA Tournament.
A nice thick thatch to play in.
I thought he was here now? Isn't his last name McGary?

As a baseball fan I'd love to have lived in the 50's to watch guys like Ted Williams, Mays, Mantle, Aaron, etc play.

It is ALWAYS a great day to be a Spartan!!!!
Like yesterday? That would be cool because I would put my life's savings down on Illinois to win.

Your a retard.
Nuh-uh. There aren't any butterflies in Illinois during the winter, dummy.

The last thing I want to do is hurt you. But it's still on the list.
no worries if you are gay!
I'll take the gamble and go with 10,000 years in the future.
Born in the early 40's
Grow up as a kid and see some of the best baseball players of all time
Move to New York
Catch the bebop era
See Miles and Trane in their primes
Tour and see The Dead, plus a bunch of other solid rock acts
Born in the Early 40s, go to College at MSU in the Early 60s to have enough money to buy a brand new Car of my choice during the golden age of muscle, attend MSU games during Championship era, have an awesome job in the Automotive industry and try to prevent the fockups that ensued in the 70s..
High School in the 50s would have been fantastic in the right neighborhoods/towns. Plus I'd go back and collect/save the most awesome cars ever created and packed them away for today while I'd be in my 60s and be able to buy the little blue pill if necessary
There is romance in all of us
I don't know why anyone would want to live in an old time period just because its interesting now. Its interesting because people were dying and things sucked. No thank you.
I wouldn't mind being around in the 60s-70s when music was great, my research could have been something simpler and playboy would have been enough to get me off
Into the future or stay put. I wouldn't go back in time to a period of war or without modern medicine or when discrimination was the cool.
It's not like you'd go back in time and be a duke or something.
Sparty is our mascot, we are Spartans.
In my opinion, we are living in the golden age of muscle right now! Head down to the Ford dealership and pick you up a GT500. 650 horsepower with a factory warranty. Nothing from the 60's would touch it
