Ok, I’ve never done one of these “ask a question” type of posts, so bear with me.

I love technology. But I also miss certain parts of the years when I grew up. I also wonder what it would be like to have lived in another time. So with that, I thought… “Hmmm.. I wonder what it would be like to be in another time with something modern to take with me?”

Now I know some of you are now saying, “Hey… that sounds like some scene out of Back To The Future!”. And you know what, you would be partially right. I love that trio of movies and there was some melding of modern items that got transported between time continuums, which pretty much was the basis for the entire movie series.

So, ok… I kind of “borrowed” the idea. But hey, it’s cool to think about so let’s have some fun.

Here’s how it works:

  • Pick a time that you would want to live in.
  • Pick a modern device or item that you want to have in this other time.

For me, it’s the mid 1950’s. Hip music, cool cars and the start to some modern inventions. And to have a cell phone with full texting and internet capability, sending back messages to the present day, logging in to the web on my phone and looking up information. Retro time, modern device.

Pretty simple. Now you try it. Feel free to go into more detail if you’d like. I’m curious to read the responses.
