This question has crossed my mind for the past few days. For me it was definitely the 90's because it was pure fun and there was no such thing as work or any of the responsibilities that come with being an adult, the world seemed like a happier and safer place then as well.

growing up in the 90s with no responsibilities other than the occasional dot to dot was magical. plus people who actually had life to live in the 90s bang on about how good the they were.

I really enjoyed growing up in the 2000s so I voted for that. I love the music and fashion of the 60s as well but the views in society wouldn't have been great. So 2000s, the current decade isn't over yet and on the whole I loved so many things about growing up in the 2000s. The shows that were around, the consoles and games, the crazes and the music/charts at the time for instance. Such simple times - I'm glad I had a carefree and fun childhood on the whole.

The 2010s as far as personal experience goes, I've been a lot happier during this decade than any other as far as growing up and feeling in control goes. The 2000s is good for culture that I enjoy, so that would be my second.

Other favourites include the 800s, the 1130s, the 1490s, the 1760s, and the -330s.

The 1970's. Great music, unlike today's which is mostly rubbish apart from a few artists/groups. None of this PC rubbish either, so we could call a spade a spade. Kids could play out without being snatched by paedos and we could leave our doors open without being burgled.

In terms of personal life, the 2010s has definitely been where I've grown as a person and had the best experiences, though that kinda thing will always be subjective.

The 1960s sound like they'd be a really great decade to be a part of what with the general optimism, culture, music, the 70s sound a bit of a comedown, the 80s had some fab pop culture trends, but nahhh at being in a world where Thatcher and Reagan reigned. I grew up in the 90s but culturally and politically, it just seemed so where it was at - Pokemon, Britpop, Millenium, Teletubbies, I could go on *_* I just wish I was a couple of years older so I could appreciate this decade fully and not just as an 8 year old. I will always hold the 00s in high regard as I grew up and had lots of school time memories and shiz, but I reckon that aside, it wasn't as remarkable as the decade before it (though it was nice having no responsibilties).

I'd say 90s OVERALL with 10s close behind.

Looking at the pros and cons of all of them:

1950s:
Pros: Rock & Roll! The first teenagers! Television!
Cons: Absolutely no gender equality. Rationing (early on). National Service. Thousands dead from smog inhalation.

1960s:
Pros: Hippies! Flower power! Revolution! Man on the moon!!
Cons: America a racist, president-assassinating war-causing mess. Tin baths and outdoor toilets still the norm. Cuban Missile Crisis almost leading to entire world's death in nuclear annihilation.

1970s:
Pros: Disco! Funky fashion! Feminism! Glam rock! Punk rock! HOT summers!
Cons: Power cuts. Strikes. 'Winter of Discontent' economy meltdown. Thatcher elected. Jimmy Savile.

1980s:
Pros: Computers! New Romantics! House music! Live Aid! Fall of the Berlin Wall! I was born!!
Cons: Thatcher. Race riots. Thatcher. Challenger explodes. Thatcher. Chernobyl explodes. Thatcher. Constant fear of nuclear war and the feeling that you, your family and the entire planet could evaporate any second in a horrible mushroom cloud-filled death at the touch of a button. THATCHER.

1990s:
Pros: End of communism! End of Thatcher! Raves! Britpop! World Wide Web invented! The best music ever! The best TV ever! The best movies ever! The best video games ever! The best everything ever!!!!!!!
Cons: They ended.
Oh, alright - still lots of war around the world (Eastern Europe, Northern Ireland, Congo, Sierra Leone etc), internet slow and expensive & owned by no one, and Diana dying was pretty crappy for some.

2000s:
Pros: Better internet! Buzzjack born! Affordable mobile phones! Obama! Facebook! Youtube! Twitter!!
Cons: 9/11. War. Tsunamis. Hurricanes. Recession. More war. Crazy Frog. Jedward.

2010s:
Pros: Christ knows.
Cons: Turn on the news.

Ok, I'm biased towards the 90s for obvious childhood-related reasons, but there's eras I'd love to have been part of - the rock & roll boom of the mid-late 50s, the forward-thinking 'summer of love' late 60s and that moon landing, the birth of house music and raves in the late 80s and generally just that 1989-2001 era all over again. I pick 1990s as I think most will for just the positivity of it all (at least from a England perspective), hopefully by the time this decade ends I'll be able to look back at it more positively.

Ah wait, gay marriage - that's one huge pro for the 2010s. Otherwise...?

The 3,000 BCs



nah but seriously, I can't decide between 90s and 00s*. I was only born in '97 so not a true 90s kid (would've been fun to properly live that decade - never got to though) so growing up in the 00s I am slightly biased towards that period.

*actually I can. 00s wins based on actual experience of it.
