    This is the truth.
    My high school ripped out the stalls and urinals in 4 bathrooms and gave us coffee cans for cigarette butts. They actually gave us a smoking lounge and the teachers did not enter them.
    There were lots of drugs passed around and smoked in those bathrooms.
    Looking back on it it seems incredulous but those were different times.

    70s-you were sent home from school if you wore pants.

    You were suspended if they caught you singing the theme song from M*A*S*H.

    Dress checks-they measured the heighth of your skirt above the knee. Thank goodness for skirts that could roll up afterwards.

    64' Chevy Nova with mags, that cruised on Whittier Boulevard. A hottie that could outbeat every boy's car there-dangerous pursuits in the mall parking lot, about 50 mph between the metal poles to throw them off and get back on the Boulevard first.

    High school friends coming home in flag drapped coffins from the war.

    Women beginning to enter male fields in college: 50 to 1 ratio. It wasn't good for my grades, but I had a great social life for awhile.

    Music that held meaning about love, war, and other social issues. Something I see sadly lacking this time during war.

    One good thing came out of the 70's for me.
    In 79 I met my current wife.

    I still have fond memories of the 70"s, I mean I was still a kid - but it wasn't all bad. Back in the day when we had to use a camera for taking pictures and a phone on the wall with a cord to make phone calls....

    Re: what do you remember about the 70's?

    The 70s were the beginning of a lot of things for me, so they weren't all bad. My Daughter, my first divorce, discharge from the Navy, [big empty spot here] my life after drugs and drinking, My first career, my second divorce, and it capped off with me meeting my current wife, and starting my second career.

    Though the best part of the 70s for me remains, New Year's Eve 1979 at midnight.

    Sounds like you made some major life changes in the 70's. I graduated high school in 81.. So basically all I can say about the seventies is...I grew up...lol
