A daily dose of sci-fi - Day 10

Which sci-fi universe/reality would you most like to live in?

The apparent explosion in popularity of MMORPGs in the last decade suggests many universes that masses of people would like to live in.

But there's a difference between wanting to spend far too many of your waking hours gaming in that world and actually living in that world. The universe of The Matrix may look cool, but if you were actually there you wouldn't be Neo, you'd be some lowly chump. Blade Runner may be massively popular and influential, with a huge amount of visual Cool, but would you really want to live in that dark, downtrodden world? Really?

So where might I actually like to live?

You might be a mutant with some amazingly cool superpower! Or you might just be a regular bloke -- but hey, it wouldn't be any worse than the world you currently live in.

Except for the insane levels of jealousy, I suppose.

Still, better than somewhere that looks cool but is actually miserable to exist in.
