Writing: Would you rather?

Would you rather go 100 years in the past or 100 years into the future?

I would like to go 100 years into the future because it can be more exciting. Bring in 2122 will be awesome because the technogy is fun to use. School will be different because pencil and paper will not be used. Business will get wealthy because the worth of the dollar will increase. If I travel to the past, it will be unsafe because it will be common to the executed.So it would be safe in the future.
