fickenchucker: Anyway, I'm teaching my boys what "Dancin" said. I told them they will feel the need to break away, try stuff, and generally grow up. Just grow up smart, like don't try to drink a whole bottle of Jack in one sitting and get alcohol poisoning, don't drive drunk, and stay away from the weird party drugs & meth they have these days. If they fark up, call me to help fix it. They'll have to face the consequences, but probably lower consequences if an adult shows them how to navigate the system.


Exactly. I was a major farkup in school. My parents are saints for how well they handled me. They were at their best when I was at my worst. My Dad never gave up, never brought down the hammer when it wasn't warranted, never made excuses for me (a major plus) and most importantly never gave up on me.

He died two years ago. God, I miss that man every day.

Jeezo. Well, enjoy!

I have a pal (we are both class of '72) who is on his fourth wife and third family - he has an 18-month old in the house. His oldest has done two tours in Afghanistan in the Marines.

I told him it was just fine to marry the younger wimmens, but, man, you don't have to have kids with EVERY wife.

We had smoking areas in the mid-1970s and you had to have a permit. Teachers had their own lounge, but the vice principle was on patrol looking for weed. So we eschewed weed at school for shroom tea.

fickenchucker: Dancin_In_Anson: RickN99: Wow, they sound like every generation since the dawn of time.

Citrate1007: These stupid farkers created the snowflake generation(s)

This is my generation too (I'm almost 50). That's what pisses me off. Sure I may have coddled my kids more than I was but I'm never thought that I was going to prevent my kids from participating in sex, drugs and rock n roll.

My statement to both Boys when they became teenagers was "There is NOTHING that you can say, think or do that I myself hasn't said, thought or done. If you fark up, don't be afraid to face it and deal with it, that's how you learn. Don't lie to me and I'll be there to help you through it."

I have a couple of pretty well adjusted adult children now.



Pretty much THIS. I was fairly high-strung in high school because my brother was a hard-core trouble maker (stoned on weed, hash, booze, and coke most of the time and putting my parents through hell) and in the middle of all this my sister was killed in an unrelated incident. I didn't want to cause trouble, but at the same time I held myself back from a fair amount of fun.

Anyway, I'm teaching my boys what "Dancin" said. I told them they will feel the need to break away, try stuff, and generally grow up. Just grow up smart, like don't try to drink a whole bottle of Jack in one sitting and get alcohol poisoning, don't drive drunk, and stay away from the weird party drugs & meth they have these days. If they fark up, call me to help fix it. They'll have to face the consequences, but probably lower consequences if an adult shows them how to navigate the system.

My wife was a little bit of a trouble maker in school and is way more high-strung about the boys than I am, so go figure that one out.

Also, everyone should teach their kids one thing--IF ARRESTED, NEVER TALK TO THE COPS. Say nothing except to demand a lawyer and phone call.

/Cop friends teach this to their kids, and said I should, too.


I wish you were my dad. quite possibly the worst day of my life - my best friend tried to prove his manhood by finishing three quarters of a fifth of Jack ( does that add up?) in two minutes. then proceeding to sit in the street daring cars to run him over. then had his head in my lap, then me taking him to the ER me trying not to make it a bon scott moment. - allow your children to experiment. but...do it responsibly. I know it sounds counter-intuitive. And don't fark-up your friends night by drinking a fifth.

/good advice in the PD thing

Harry Freakstorm: Clayton, who was principal from 1976 to 1983, said taking a look at what his students included, he could take a guess at who left what. For example, he knew the cutoff denim shorts belonged to one of his former students and current bus drivers, Shawna Allen.


She must have had a nice little ass back in 79. Wonder how flat and wide that bus seat has made it?

stevetherobot: I was born in '68 and the '70s were my childhood. It was the most godawful decade in all of history. Tacky clothes, tacky cars, tacky furniture, tacky hairstyles. And everything was dirty, falling apart or on fire except the things that were dirty, falling apart AND on fire. And as for those of you extolling the freewheeling sex and drugs vibe, well you guys ruined everything. If you'd shown a little farking self-restraint we would have things like AIDS and the war on drugs. You dug too greedily and too deep.


'64 here, but I place the Boomer vs. X dividing line at November 5, 1962. Anyone born then or later was too young to be eligible to vote in 1980. Being an early X'er is like arriving late at the party only to find that the keg is down to its last dregs, the furniture is smashed, the attractive women are gone, the host wants you to help clean up, and the cops are on the way to break it up.

My own high school was uptight and fascistic long before "zero tolerance" became a buzzword, and an empty booze bottle would have never made it into a time capsule. Even a T-shirt that mentioned alcohol would get you suspended. I'm glad I was done with it in '82. There was some pushback from the students, though - my jaw dropped one morning when they announced intramural volleyball scores on the PA and "Yellow Jackets" vs. "Purple Microdot" was one of the games announced. The whole homeroom LOL'ed. Needless to say, the teams were forced to change their names...

I was in college in NC in the early- and mid-70s, and North Carolina then and now has always been a nexus of the pot trade.

We had Mexican weed for as little as $8 an oz for everyday buzz. For parties we had Columbian, and for special occasions we had Thai sticks and Hawaiian bud. The Thai sticks went for $60 each and the Hawaiian was $30 for a half-bag.

Things went to hell in the late 70s and early 80s when coke hit. Prices went up and people started carrying guns, so that's when I lost interest in the whole scene.

Ah yes. Redbud. I loved it. It was plentiful in my area because it came in on USAF transports. Going price in 1977: $25 for a weighed oz. All buds, no shake. We'd get Thai stick and Hawaiian sense sometimes, too, but it ran about $35 - $40. If you could get a couple of buds to go in with you, you could get a quarter pound for about $80.

BTW, the genie is out of the bottle now. As pot becomes legal around the country (and it is going to) the price is going to start falling back to reasonable levels again.

I wimped out and bought a Rizla machine. I never did get the knack for rolling joints.

I grew up in Louisville, Kentucky, so even homegrown was decent weed. The imported stuff went for $35 to $45 per ounce, but you could get a quarter-pound for $120.

CSB Time..

When I was in the Air Farce, the my base had two security police squadrons. One was for the SAC wing, which guarded the bombers, etc. The other was TAC wings, which provided police services because it was the host command. The TAC SPs were a bunch of dicks and were constantly doing "health and welfare" "inspections" (aka drug busts) on the SAC units. One day, my First Shirt was tired of this BS and went to the base commanded. He obtained approval for the SAC SPs to do a health and welfare inspection on the TAC SP's barracks and perform an audit of the police property room. So at 9:30 pm on a Friday night, the SAC team raided the TAC SP barracks. We were given a heads up and waited outside to cheer as the dicks were brought out in handcuffs. 40 people were busted. In the police property room? No dope was found, though the records indicated that there should be some 20 lbs of pot there. Whoops.

well it doesn't have an odor like pot.
it's small so it's easy to hide.
you can do it in a bathroom stall and no one would know
you could "maintain" in public unless you just did a lot.
and the high was brief.

LSD it's hard to maintain composure in public and it lasts for a long time.

/get off my lawn.....punks.


1979...

I recall wearing a 'Disco Sucks!' button on my varsity jacket, listening to Ted Nugent, Bob Seger, Led Zeppelin, The Eagles, Foghat, and being introduced to the music of some guy named Jimi Hendrix. No self respecting album rock fan owned a Kiss album, or if they did it was one of their live albums and they never played it. I actually allowed my mom to perm my hair (though admittedly it was a pretty nice looking white man's afro).

I also recall not having a girlfriend, hating how tongue tied I got around women generally, and zits. We bought cartons of 16 ounce soda pop in glass bottles, all with real sugar and never diet. Right around this time they introduced the 8 pack carton and you made sure you returned the empties to get your deposit back. My family rarely ate out except on Sundays when we'd load up in the family station wagon and go to Ponderosa Steak House. There was no salad bar--you told them what kind of dressing you wanted (no fat free, no "lite') and they handed you a small bowl full of sliced iceberg, carrots, radishes, and tomatoes. You got the chopped steak, we used coupons, and we were happy.

As a nation we loathed Jimmy Carter, hated Iran, actually thought Middle East peace might be possible for a few days, still laughed at Gerald Ford tripping down stairs, and Saturday Night Live was still relevant and funny. Everyone found out where Three Mile Island was located.

Looking back and knowing what I know now, there's some things I'd do exactly the same, many things I'd do again but perhaps a bit differently, and a few things I'd not do at all. But it was good times on balance.

I thought of that almost immediately. Not even clean alligator clip with a couple of little feathers glued onto a piece of string on the end? But then I realized it was still a felony back then.

Sybarite: My older brother went to high school in the mid to late 70s, and I went in the mid to late 80s. All things considered, his pre-AIDS, pre-Just Say No, pre-PMRC high school experience probably had a bit of an edge over mine.


This is why we shouldn't begrudge the kids the really cool toys they get at xmas, ones that didn't exist when we were growing up. It's only a fraction of compensation they deserve for having to deal with all that crap now.
