    I would like to see a movie about 1920: how life was like without internet, cell phones, and computers.

    Imagine being born to our new exciting world. New born children this year have so many more opportunities than their ancestors

    Equality, education, understanding of our world - yes I would pick 2020

    1920 would mean going through a World War, so 2020 would be the better option.

    Neither. Being born in 1951, give or take a few years, was as good as it gets.

    If I had to chose, I’d go for 2020 and take my chance. 

    My mother was born in 1919, and she thought her time was better than mine, so it’s all subjective. There again, she’s the only person I have ever spoken to who says they enjoyed the Second World War.

    Why not ask which leg I'd rather cut off?

    So long as I was born British I dont think it matters an awful lot. A while ago I would have said 2020 but in our present position I feel life was better for them born in an earlier age,so long as it was in England.
