Wellon Dowd: JMan245: #8.... holy nipples batman...

Nipples were no big deal in the 1970's. We'd seem them all the time. It was a freer time.

man, back in the 70s, every body had nipples.
Your teachers had nipples.
Nuns had nipples

No one could escape the nipples.

I was a kid in the 70s.
lessee what we have here.
Starts off with Matt Mcconaughey,  gay, cruising for boys.
Next pic, Ah yes, children smoked back then, I do remember that. I did, too.
And there's that kid they made all the "big eyed kid" paintings of.  That is Iconic 70s shait right there.
Moving on..
Next pic: Excellent. This is choice. Slutty middle schooler with her defiant friend shooting the photog the finger.
That is Iconic, and so much like every night of my 13 year old summers.
Next pic: Scary Adults. Probably perverts.
Next: Yeah. Big kids didn't know not to wear horizontal patterns back them. they looked like a TV on the fritz.
Next: Skank. Her boyfriend's a mechanic and they live together in sin.
Next: He knocked her up. That's subby's real father.
Next: Pretty typical of fashion for girls back then, and very very sexy.
Next: Why, Miss Cyrus, who are your friends? Are they rock stars?
Next: Looks like the Schnapps paid off.

Yep. classic stuff.
Makes me look back and cry.

Ah, for the good ol' 70s. Young boys were so much easier to pick up back then before all this 'Stranger Danger' sh*t got started.

Betep: Gene Rayburn owned the local roller skating rink.

Is that where he gave Charles Nelson Reilly piggy-back rides?

Hey kids, look at what YOUR PARENTS were doing when they were young. Isn't that WILD? Who could have possibly imagined that your parents were once teenagers TOO. You are hooked on crack and pregnant at 18 but your parents were doing roller derby. OMG. Roller derby. OMFG. Roller derby.

BTW, mom and dad the name of your grandkid is Aristotle Camus McPherson. They so thought of that name before you.

downstairs: vudukungfu: naughtyrev: My high school had a really nice outdoor area right off the cafeteria for smoking. Later on, they painted a line through the middle of it and said you had to stay on one side (furthest away from the doors and windows) to smoke, before banning it altogether.

We had a student strike, walk out - in order to get a smoking lounge.
We got it.
It was a great place to take a drink

I'm curious... around what year?

We too had an outdoor smoking area outside our cafeteria.... that was 1981.

My nephew graduated from the same school a couple years ago. When I asked him if they still had the smoking area outside the caf, he looked at me like I had lobsters coming out of my ears.
