I was thinking about it, and was wondering what would be better as far as lifestyle. Would you guys rather be a lower middle class to lower class person of today or would you rather be a wealthy person in the middle ages, and by wealthy I mean like a knight or a lord.

Define lower middle class.


Like how many of you guys live today. Like you have the basics of modern living but nothing incredibly amazing. Like internet, running water, maybe an ipod. Like you have cool stuff from today, but you don't have like a gold plated toilet.

Wealthy people in the middle ages lived like badasses, so that option, please.

With no running water, have to walk outside to poop. Have to hang out with people who wipe their ass with their bare hand. No meals in five minutes. I don't know, I think I'd live today.

I mean, I'm in America, but it could go for anywhere. When I think of the modern day I think like America, or the western world, same for Middle Ages. Middle Ages would also come with political responsibilities, and you'd probably have to attend church to appease the pope. Them Popes need appeasin'.

So picky are you?

Would suck to be in a country whose language you don't speak though. I could be in England and I could probably do well in Spain, but anywhere else would be too difficult.

I'd rather be a medieval knight or lord.
Since I started reading the Song of Ice & Fire series, it's been getting into my dreams
I read right before I sleep which is probably why.

In fact, I think I'd rather be a lower class (but not serf level) person in the medieval ages rather than a rich person today.
#18
I'd just rather be in the middle ages either way

Man's too technologically advanced for my tastes at this point, and don't know how to digest the insane amount of progress they've made.
Do you feel warm within your cage?

And have you figured out yet -

I want to make sure I can access healthcare in my hypothetical situation.

Really, says the guy sitting on a computer talking to a forum, and you'd just said you'd rather be a serf than anyone today.

That's correct. Since I'm a part of 'mankind,' I don't see how this is confusing to you.

That said, I hardly think using an old PC to send text based responses to an online forum is the pinnacle of technological development.

I just really don't think you understand how bad shit sucked back then without technology. Wiping your ass with your hand sounds great. Not being able to keep rats out of your house and getting the plague is awesome, not being able to fix the plague is even better. It just annoys me when people complain about our technological advancements.

I hate to break this to you, pal, but you don't 'really' know what it was or wasn't back then either, so let's come off the "I was there, bro, you don't want none'a that!" spiel. TS asked a question, I used my opinions on the world and society to form an answer, which remains unchanged.

And really, wiping your ass with your hand? How much do you even know about the time period in question if that's something you're honestly putting forth as an argument?

However, let's run with it, tit for tat.

1. Rats in the house.
Get a cat, kill them. Traps were functional back then as well.

2. Plague catching.
Terrible. I agree, but there are diseases today that are prevalent and lethal as well; see cancer, aids, and so on.

3. No cure for the plague.
By the way, there are no cures for cancer, aids, and so on.

You think they had toilet paper? Paper was expensive as ****. I'm also TS. And I'm not saying I've been there or anything. I'm just saying how nice modern living is. They didn't have wood pulp paper, and because of this paper was worth a ton of money.

Aids and cancer aren't as easy to catch as being bitten by fleas (which if you were a serf, you probably had fleas at a few points in your life).

Oh, so throughout history, your anal cleaning options were either A) Toilet paper, or B) Your hand?

Thanks for clearing that up for me

As far as the fleas part of your comment, you 100% missed the point.

No to the middle ages, despite the wenches. Too many "special" types of belts.
You are now using UG Black.

I'd rather be a lower class person of today, with the description you gave. Even if I was in the lower class of Mexico (or countries with similar class divides). If we were talking about being a lower class Somalian or a noble in the middle ages, it would be a tough question to answer.

Middle age.

I'd bang so many midgets.

Near absolute power over your decently-sized domain or the absolute powerlessness that is modern existence for everyone but the super rich?

**** advances in health, convenience, etc. I'd take the lord position 1000x over.
