    I'd like to live in Middle-earth, though there's no internet, no TV, no Orlando Bloom... but Legolas!! Yay! If I lived in Middle-earth, I'd move to mirkwood just to see him. ^.^
    I just wonder if I'd be a man, an elf or a hobbit. I look like a hobbit, but I'd really like to be an elf.
    Well... never mind.

    ME: Peaceful, clean air, ELVES! Can kill orcs :)D).
    Cons: No plumbing, technology, or Halo 2 :)()


    I'm pretty comfortable here, but I would like to visit at a peaceful time. Now if you'll excuse me, it's only 58 minutes until H2's release. I must continue looking at a clock.

    Well, I can obviously say Middle earth because Id rather live at any time then now. I really dont fit into my generation. Infact, most of my generation doesnt care about the enviromen, heath, other people etc.

    Anyways, I think I could servive in Middle earth, I can think and fight. Just give me a sword and some ale (coke a cola would be better) :D

    Oh Bliss, bliss and heaven !
    Just thinking about it makes me one of the happiest man on earth.
    Oh, i would love to walk in the virgin lands, live as a ranger, hunt some orcs, take place in a battle, visit the white city. And the shire...
    That would be awesome !!!

    That would be quite awesome. Just think of it, riding out with the Rohirrim to Minas Tirith.

    I'd love to live in middle-eath because of that beautiful landscape and because of the elves(Yay,elves!).
    It would be so cool to hang around with the Followship.
    And of couse I would want to kill some orcs.
    Yeah,that would be great!

    I would be an elite ranger/assassin/mercenary, who only hunts orcs, haradrim, easterlings, and other unsightly vermin.

    Okay, now while it would be cool, what makes you all think you'd have the skills to be 1337 orc hunters ? Orcs maim and kill TONS of people, what happened if you got captured and taken to Barad-dur ? You wouldn't think Middle-Earth was so fantastic then, would you ?

    I'd choose our time, even though its very violent its alot less war-torn then Middle-Earth, and there are no evil Maia's trying to take over the world. Now, the Fourth Age, that would be a lovely place to visit.

    Excellent point grabsteinkraut, I could most certainly compare Middle-Earth to some places in this day in age.
