    There’s a parallel world shown extensively in videos where every simple pizza delivery, straightforward fridge repair, plumbing job or business meeting becomes a fairly ritualised sexual encounter, which seems pretty popular. But on the other hand, as it were, could become a bit knackering after a day or so and not much would get done so yeah, Culture.

    (Though for all its utopian aspects, actual culture citizens seem not much happier than the rest of us. So perhaps Brave New World world, as long as I can keep soma’d up.)

    Culture is pretty popular with good reason. The thing is, you’re still you when you get there…

    There was a series of fantasy/sci-fi books I read in my youth by an author named Piers Anthony. They were probably quite lame, but I liked them then, as I found the juxtaposition of his sci-fi world – with its “companionship robots”! – and a medieval-like fantasy world, very appealing.

    So I guess I’d choose to be in the world of the “Adept” series.

    Hazzard County; the one I spent many an enjoyable 23 minutes at a time of my early life thoroughly absorbed by. Nice weather, fun in cars and mild peril of being chased around by a corrupt but incompetent sheriff and his deputies.

    I had NO idea about the racism and sexism inherent in the show. Pity; looked great fun from my then innocent eyes.

    Nah, I wouldn’t be in SC. I’d just be living on a wilderness world somewhere on my own, but with a Mind somewhere accessible. Like the woman in the beginning of whichever book opens with her rock climbing and talking to the Mind.

    Either this

    The village of Danebury, from the Detectorists.

    Mornings spent in sunny fields surrounded by chirping birds and bees buzzing. Afternoons eating sandwiches and drinking tea under big trees and nights spent in the pub with pals…. just about perfect.

    or Lower Tadfield, pre-arrival of the 4 Horsepersons of the Apocalypse. The weather is always perfect for the time of year. Long hot sunny days in August, snow on Christmas Eve….

    Iain M Banks the world of “the culture”

    That or the star trek universe, probably TNG era…

    Basically I likes me a bit of late 80s early 90s sci-fi.

    Star Wars probably, or The Matrix looks nice

    A socialist paradise.

    After the purge the emerging STW benevolent dictatorship.

    I long for the days of being patted on the head by the grand high wizard Bazza (arms length manager, possibly living in Spain, the people are so nice there) as I agree with and echo everything he says. After all we are the most tolerant, live and let live people in the world, aren’t we. The papers say so and I’ve got a black gender fluid best friend (sock puppet) as proof.

    He will allow me to rent one of his wonderful terrace houses in Moston (no children or dogs) and I will be eternally grateful and work, for the people, for free. Either that or join the peoples army (allowed to drive base model VW’s as a perk), compulsory palace and public space gardeners, house servants to the great and the good (a pooled tandem as a perk), pot hole menders and litter picking teams.

    I notice no-one has chosen Midsomer .

    Weather always seems decent, but life expectancy is questionable.

    Hmm. The Discworld is pretty cool but I’d have to be a witch cos I don’t fancy being a seamstress…

    Star Wars. I’d be a super awesome Force using bounty hunter with a belter ship.

    Nirn (Elder Scrolls world) would be great despite strange physics issues. A life spent dicking about, stealing everything that’s not bolted down just because you can, generally acting like a **** and having magic pockets that can hold endless supplies of anything would be great. Only downside would be cliff racers and that “Arrow to the knee” guy who is everywhere.

    I think a boring truthful answer would have to the socialist paradise from Star Trek TNG. Everyone living in peace and fulfillment furthering the endeavours of human race.

    So on further deliberation and knowing my pox ridden luck (Rincewind has better luck than me), I’d chose the ST TNG universe and end up at Wolf 359 or Ceti Alpha 5.  If I arrived in the B5 universe I’d be dropped off at Daltron 7 or Z’ha’dum.

    The Culture wouldn’t have me, either that or I’d have an overbearing snobby drone or knife missile following me around lecturing me on good behaviour and manners and generally stopping me doing what I wanted to do.

    Other places I think I would end up; Geidi Prime, home of House Harkonnen, maybe dropped off at Tyco Crater/Moonbase Alpha on September 12th 1999 and I just know I would be a Broadleaf Farmer on Trenco in the Lensman Universe.
