How about we go back in time to before gunpowder and start swinging swords and dirks?

How far back. Sparta would be good, get you into shape by tossing you in the wilderness and if you passed you're trained to be a warrior. I can see you now, totally ripped, liberally marinated with olive oil at the side of Gerard Butler. Off to fight the invading hordes of Xerces at the pass of Thermopylae.

Or part of a well trained Roman Legion of the Ninth. March from Rome to York like a walk in the park. Only to vanish without trace like Malaysian Air 370

But I think you would be best in the Middle Ages. Ravaged one plagues after another without lockdown. Smitten by one ailment after another, but who needs a vaccine. Serious injury a death sentence. If you survived you would be ripped and fighting fit and tend to be a little blase about death as you approach old age at 30. And why not, you had the church who had the power to give your soul eternal salvation or damnation. Confession of sins is way overrated when the quickest to salvation was to die heroically in battle, especially against heathens.

Release the Kraken. Sorry this was just a drill. Put the Kraken back in its cage. Gulp
