No problem with single wides. 1.5's meant Cheech and Chong size.

Too bad the the Jack bottle wasn't unopened. Being aged 30 years might have made it a tolerable drink.

Hobodeluxe: MFAWG: The beer can thing I learned in the military.

Can still roll a serviceable doobie, using a single wide Zigzag

paper is bad for you and wastes product :) too much escapes into the open air.


But a pipe would break your Marlboro Lights, and there was nowhere else to carry small amounts of weed because the jeans were skin tight and had only2 pockets.

Look Of Disapproval: My sister was class of '79. In my state, it was legal to drink at 18, so virtually all of the graduating seniors could.


The drinking age should be 18. If you can
-vote
-marry
-sign a legal contract
-join the military
-fight and die for your country
then you should be able to drink.

The 21 year old drinking age is stupid.

Now see? That's a regionalism as far as I can tell. A nickel bag was about two. A lid could have been an ounce - for $25 in this area around 1972 - or so I'm told

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.


Farking baby boomers screwed everything up for everyone after them. Got theirs and left a mess.
-Screwed up drinking. (Raised drinking age)
-Screwed up drugs. (Everything got too hard.)
-Screwed up sex. (AIDS, Herpes and Safe Sex")
-Screwed up the economy. (Great Recession)
-Screwed up the future. (Global warming, Social Security etc)

brantgoose: The Class of 2012 will be paying it forward by including all of those items in their time capsule.

However, they will be adding the following items to represent hopey-changey: a 4 Gigabyte thumb drive of web memes, an Obama HOPE t-shirt that got 17 class members expelled from school, a plastic cop-killer gun that did not get anybody expelled from anywhere, and enough bath salts to make kids of the future wonder why the kids of 2012 wasted so much water, dooming the kids of 2062 to taking one minute sponge baths in mass detention at the Obamaland HSC (Homeland Security Centers). Messianic Obama is God! God proposes but the class of 2062 disposes!

Class of 87 here.

In the late 70s, me and my friends were afraid of you guys.

We'd be playing in the woods and first smell the smoke, then hear laughter (nothing like the way our mothers laughed either) and we'd warn each other in hushed voices... "teen-agers" and we'd be gone.

We were there though.

Huh. That's a new one on me.

We used a chillum mainly because the only guy in town who had hash (Dave C, popularly known as "Half Man, Half Reefer") wouldn't let us "buy" any from him because he thought if he didn't sell us any, it wasn't illegal. And he only had a chillum.

So you'd fall by his place on the way into town, maybe leave a few bucks "for the rent" on the table, and then hit the chillum.

When you could no longer hold it straight, it was time to go downtown.

We did this with a piece of cardbord and a pin and a Big Coke glass from work

i.ebayimg.com

My folks had a white acrylic kitchen table we were smoking on.. we had like a HUGE like Gram on the pin and 2 or 3 of us were smoking at the same time using the straw and after we were done, there was a MAJOR BROWN STAIN on the table. We freaked and since it was nice hash smoke oily stain, we practically had to use steel wool to get it off.

Nice! My man Woody had one similar to that, it had been his grandad's.

I had a blue ceramic pipe with Gandalf's face on it (it was the early 70s, OK?) that I bought my first week as a college freshman in '72. When my first child was born in '83, I was already getting wary of the drug scene for a number of reasons, so the night my daughter came home from the delivery room, I took one last toke, wrapped it up in a Chivas Regal bag with a couple rocks, and tossed it off a fishing pier into the Atlantic. End of an era.

hogans: Before 1984, it was left up to the states to determine the legal drinking age.


In Colorado back then, anyone over 18 could purchase and drink 3.2 beer and 3.2 wine coolers. Anything that encourages weak fermented beverages over strong distilled stuff is a plus as far as I am concerned.

Actually I think the drinking age is still state mandated. The problem is the Feds basically said if you don't raise it we yank your highway dollars which amounts to a truck load of money the states are not about to lose.

Biness: Saberus Terras: Biness: that was a really shiatty time capsule.

I know one that will be shiattier. Opening next year, sealed in 93. My 6th grade class buried a TC. I dropped a deuce on it as I was tasked with burying it after hours as part of a disciplinary action for a stunt involving 1,000 ping pong balls.

you sir, are an american hero.

perhaps even a Bud Light Real Man of Genius.

i love time lapse pranks. I still have some out there I think.


About ten years ago the landlord of the apartment I was renting hired some
plumbers to repipe the whole place, so I was left with a giant hole in the bathroom
wall for a day or so. This was around halloween. I found a great little skeleton with
a big head - looked a bit like an infant. I wrapped it in some cloth, built a nice
little basswood coffin for it and dropped it between the studs. The drywall guy
came by, sealed it up and as far as I know it's still there. I'm really hoping
it scares the crap out of the next plumber in 30 years or so.

Born in '82, and I grew up as an 80s kid with a relatively stable house. I feel like I walk the precipice between that era and the tech era. I love the simpler times when people were left to their (often f#@^*&! up) designs. I love Dazed and Confused and feel like I was born in the wrong era, I hate the PC society that we have become. Dont get me wrong, I love the internet, tech, and all that stuff, and it has made us better overall, but it also has presented us with additional issues. Most kids are dead behind the eyes today, and cant even hold an intelligent conversation without looking at their phone. Just go over to an 18 year old, start an uncomfortable conversation, and see how quickly they whip out that safety net and try to block you out. My youngest brother was born in 95 and I do that to him all the time, as he flips his one direction hair cut.
