    Default You know that you are born in the wrong time period when...

    This Topic is more dear to me than many will ever know. Before Guns and modern technology everything was so simple, wars were won via skill not by bombs etc. (Though I do love playing computer games and I do not see myself being very entertained without one or a TV [alas what has become of this hedonistic society we call modernisation])

    This is for all of you to have fun with

    You know you are born in the wrong time period when you order your men to charge against heavily fortified trenches armed to the teeth with machine guns and the only protection they have is the clothes on their backs and a suspect quality helmet, and they are fighting in the Somme region.

    yeah i often ponder this sort of thing myself.

    I'm not sure i was born in the ideal time, though I cant really compare. I intend to spend a few years of my life in the Army, to see what its like. I'm quite good at history and I kind of know what it was like to fight back then. Notice "kind of"; the emotions are probably immpossible to reproduce.

    You know that you are born in the right time period when you can live through your life without being forced to fight and die for the petty ambitions of some inbred monarch.

    RTW, 167 BC: Rome expels Greek philosophers after the Lex Fannia law is passed. This bans the effete and nasty Greek practice of 'philosophy' in favour of more manly, properly Roman pursuits that don't involve quite so much thinking.

    You know when you were born at the wrong time when you are forced to become a eunuch at birth. Or even worse, in later life.

    When you design tanks, machine guns, cluster bombs, parachutes and an underwater breathing apparatus, but were born in the 15th century.

    If you can't guess who that is, shame on you.

    You work out that you can't send swordsmen into battle because nobody uses swords anymore.
