First thing that came to my mind as well. I would have been a junior in 1979.

So yeah, the 70's rocked and then 1-21-1981 changed everything.

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.

My buddies and I buried a time capsule in 2003 at my high school. All I can remember is a copy of Ween's Quebec, a PS memory card, a Bud Light, a Sharpie marker, a note with contact info if found before we dug it up, and my contribution of a racket ball. There was more stuff but I cant remember. Fun stuff.

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

That said, I get the impression (from the ads on the page) that this took place in Indiana, where the drinking age at the time was... 21.

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."

Went to Army basic on 1 June 79. I 'graduated' a semester early with the preggers. The school was trying to stop the baby boom by getting the pregnant girls out of the school before they could convince the next bunch to keep the kid. Prior to this, the pregged girl disappeared for a year. If she returned, she was no longer the party hardy type. Just sullen and morose.

The school said that if you had 16 1/4 credits, you could walk on January. So the end of first semester after a class load of Building Trades (build a house from 8 to 11 am), Basic Electricity, Woodworking and Basic Auto Shop (never left the shop teacher's classroom) I graduated. I then spent a few months working for a pest control company spraying diatholon(?) under people's homes before reporting to Basic training with horribly swollen feet and hands (from using the aforementioned diatholon(?))

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.

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!

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 not have things like AIDS and the war on drugs. You dug too greedily and too deep.

Thats right, I said TEACHERS and STUDENTS...I cant even fathom that now...Good times indeed...Fast Times at Ridgemenot High and Dazed and Confused are the best movies reflecting that era.

Class of 77 and yeah that was a great time. The fundies were still the "silent" majority unlike the "belligerent" majority they are now. No such thing as AIDS (as far as we knew) Muscle cars.(I had a 69 GTO judge at the time) Cheap gas. Drinking age was 18 and we had open campus at school.

I went to an all boys catholic school. and yes, teachers and students smoked during breaks. picture is true, sans hair at the private school. amazing how much boys tried to hide their long hair. biatches. at my twenty year the same "dean" of students was still telling alum to cut their hair.

Ah. Thought you were talking about diazinon - which we used to spray under houses for ants and fleas. It gave me headaches like you wouldn't believe.

Had it been my high school - well, I went to a military school. They played hard ball about drugs, including bringing the dogs around randomly to sniff for pot in the lockers. But, in true military fashion, they didn't give a shiat about alcohol or underaged drinking so our time capsule would have been filled with Bud tallboys, Boone's Farm, and "Military Special" vodka, which was also good for getting bugs off your windshield.

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.

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.

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.

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.

'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.
Pot smells and is hard to hide.

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.

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.

The drinking age should be 18. If you can

-marry
-sign a legal contract
-join the military
-fight and die for your country
then you should be able to drink.

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 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.

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.

My brother was '79. I was '82. Whole lotta nothing in my white-bread suburbian shangrai la of the San Francisco East Bay. Back then we still had real-life cowboys and cowgirls, though. A handful of frontier holdouts that ran the cattle ranches in Contra Costa County. It's all million dollar homes and office parks today.

Never cared for the Zepplin or the Foghats or Whatnot. I was into the Reggae, Punk, and New Wave, though none of us ever dressed the part much. We'd ride BART into Berkeley to go to the used-record stores and second-hand clothing stores to feel Bohemian. Most of the kids at our school had pretty wealthy, upper-middle class parents with professional jobs in Oakland or San Francisco. A handful of us had parents who were schoolteachers.

Funny thing about our teachers, most of 'em were old hippies from the San Francisco/Berkeley hippie culture of the 60's and they just didn't understand why we wouldn't get all riled up and protesty when Reagan got elected . Why, most of us didn't give two shiats about anything and were just waiting until we could go away to college and get drunk/laid/etc.

My brother's class was all corduroy bell-bottoms, hiking boots, poofy down jackets, flannel shirts, and John Denver haircuts. Groovy California Granola. By the time I was a senior the Preppy thing took off and it was all Levis 501 jeans, topsiders or penny loafers, polo shirts, oxford shirts, all that LL Bean and Land's End stuff. Haircuts tightened up. What a stupid time. I couldn't wait to get away and go batshiat irresponsible stupid. It was unfortunate, for if I'd done more of that in high school I might have avoided more serious trouble later.

My asshole brother ruined that era for me. My siblings were '77, '79, and '81, with me trailing along at '87.

'77 and '79 were cool, but not trouble makers. '81 was an epic stoner with no self control, intelligence to hide his fun, or human enough to not get in trouble with the cops or try to punch my parents. My whole life up to this point has been liking certain parts of my childhood, but hating that stoner culture because '81 couldn't handle his shiat. He's still a massive social retard with serious obsession/alcoholic-style-lack-of-moderation issues. He's clean now, but cannot do anything with any common sense.

So, with that leadup, was that era really that free-wheeling, even by the "good kids", or all of you guys just the burnouts who knew how to grow up when you had to?

AngryDesertDweller: You early 70's High School guys are slippin' , don't forget the chicks wore HOT PANTS !!!


Alas! Not in my world. When I was in HS, girls could not wear shorts to school. No girl's mother would allow her to wear hot pants. They could wear culottes, but only if they had those flaps on them front and back (my sister got the kind where the flaps could be removed). I guess the school officials knew how easy it would have been for us to surreptitiously finger-blast girls so clad. In my sisters time, just a few years earlier, girls couldn't wear pants at all. Dresses and skirts were required and the hem could be no more than two inches above the knee. Things were more liberal in my day. The hem could be - oooooh racy - three inches above the knee, but still form-fitting sweaters and pull-overs were verboten. We boys were not allowed to wear jeans in my freshman year, but this was later relaxed. But we could not wear tee shirts or sweatshirts and our shirts had to be tucked in. No one was allowed to wear shorts. But this was the era, too, of peasant blouses and granny dresses, so no one much cared. The cooler guys wore suede or leather jackets with tassels - al a Jimi Hendrix. A lot of us wore stash bags, which were routinely searched, which is why we wore them -- to fark with the man.

Actually, the disco crap aside, the 70s were a pretty awesome time to grow up.

fickenchucker: So, with that leadup, was that era really that free-wheeling, even by the "good kids", or all of you guys just the burnouts who knew how to grow up when you had to?


Yeah, it pretty much was, but very different than later years. You see, we didn't have helicopter parents then and were not scrutinized the way kids are today. The rules we lived by may seem stricter, but we had more freedom, too. Oh, we got in trouble; you can bet on that. But, for the most part, our parents knew we were out doing shiat they would not approve of and didn't ask too many questions unless things weren't going right. You just knew not to push the limits too much. Dad getting a call from the police station to come bail you out on a Saturday night meant that there wouldn't be anymore Saturday nights for a long time. As for sex, the only thing my dad ever said is "you get that little girl pregnant, I'll kick your ass. Go by some rubbers. If you are too embarrassed to do that, you have no business showing it to girls anyway." The girls would get up off of it for a steady boyfriend, but things like a FWB didn't exist. You had to make an investment. No girl would give it up for just anyone and risk getting the slut label, though a few girls went through boyfriends like underwear. All of us had curfews and they were strictly enforced. My curfew started at 11:00 when I was a freshman and was extended to 1am by the time I was a senior. My town imposed a curfew on anyone under 18; you had to be off the streets by midnight and if you got caught with a 15 year old in your car after 10, you were in trouble. So we cruised and did "street things" earlier in the evening, finished out at a friends house, and then took the back streets home. Better was to tell the parents you were sleeping over someplace, get out of town and have an all-night party in the woods.

Few of us became burn-outs, though some did go down in flames. Many of my HS friends are still in my hometown living what to me would have been an incredibly boring life. The rest of us understood that there was nothing there worth staying around for and left.

Andrew Melin, Greater Clark superintendent, said while he wasn't living in the area at the time, he graduated from high school in 1978, the same time a lot of the items in the time capsule were from. He said one thing in particular sent him back in time.

"The Fleetwood Mac 'Rumors' album because I remember listening to that one," Melin said. "I remember throughout my whole high school experience listening to that album."

Which means he is full of shiat because Rumours wasn't released until he was more than halfway through 11th grade.

Nike high tops (HAD to be leather)
Shirts with the little alligator logo
Parachute pants (the ones with all the zippers, not the MC Hammer variety)
Flipping through imports and EPs at the Heavy Metal Unlimited
Piecing together the 'Mother of All Pipes' at the Rock A Rolla cuz I couldn't roll a joint to save my damn life. Came out looking like gum balls when I tried. Had a friend whose oldest brother was the biggest dealer in our area at the time. Remember sitting at his house playing Nintendo and got up to get a beer. Opened the wrong fridge. Damn thing was PACKED!! Never saw so much weed in my life.
Spent the summer between 11th and 12th grade getting baked to the gills almost every day. Got to the point where all it did was make me thirsty and tired so I lost interest.
