I’d probably exist in the future where a lot of things would float and be silvery

utopian future, ala Superman or Star Trek.

I would exist in the future. The bizzaro Sin City where everyone was happy.

This is a tough choice. My gut says wild west- just because the lure of nature and exploration of a landscape unmolested.

But then there would be no Fluther thus intelligent conversation would be next to impossible to find.

So then future? I am not sure I can live without trees, open spaces and nature.
I have to think more about the pros and cons.

Medieval fantasy would be beautiful and I could ride around on a unicorn.

Dog's avatar

After weighing all the possible choices I will go back to the Wild West.
~There if someone is annoying enough you can just shoot them.~

Wait- Medieval is an option? Hell- now I have to think again.

The alternate universe in which I am a buff, beautiful, kick-ass, goddess-like warrior woman. (I’ve always wanted to wield a sword.)

Utopian world village

I’d have to pick Super Hero world. I don’t know what Dark Cyberpunk really means, Medieval Fantasy clothes would be uncomfortable, and the rest of them sound too dangerous and/or smelly. You know, those cowboys and pirates didn’t have deodorant or proper dental care.

Futuristic Star Warish. Would never want to go back before the invention of penicillin. Too many people dropping dead for getting a scratch.

one where i’m attractive and popular, because if i’m gonna live in an alternate reality, it’s gonna be the most far out one possible.

Probably a hybrid of Bag End and steampunk. I want my little round house, with lots of little, barefoot, round children who help to grow our own food. But I also love the Victorian aesthetic with futuristic possibilities. With a little Guillermo del Toro action thrown in for the occasional harrowing adventure, just to keep things interesting.

Authentic Aboriginal Native Indian culture and society, before the white man came to spoil it. (preferably as Chief)

@syz Perhaps one of the famed Amazons? Known for legendary beauty and warrior prowess. Note I am not referring to the Hollywood version ala Raquel Welch.

I am still in flux regarding my answer but it would be in the past. The question is how far in the past.

Porn World, where I would happily be a pizza delivery man.

@Dog As long as I don’t have to slice off a boob.

@AstroChuck copier repair guy. “looks like something is jammed…”

Dog's avatar

@syz Gads- I forgot about that- stay away from archery!

The one where everything is made of motzerella sticks and marinara sause.

I really shouldn’t be Fluthering on an empty stomach.

raptorum's avatar

I would live in a star warsish universe were I am the leader of a powerful organization. And were I have many different powers and powerful allies and enemys.

The one in my head.

augustlan's avatar

I like my current life an awful lot. Maybe I’d just zip a little into the future, where the economy has recovered and we’re earning sufficient money. Oh, and the war(s) were peacefully over. :)

AstroChuck's avatar

@auggie- There’s always another war on the horizon.

augustlan's avatar

@Chuckie Way to harsh my mellow, man. ~

Easy. The wonderful world of Harry Potter!

I am the Mother of an Autistic young Man. I would like to live in a reality in which Autism was cured. In which people against research saw the truth as Nancy Regan did. That would be a more moral and fear world. Sadly it is far from reality. People are to self absorbed to empathize with others.
