How growing up in the 1970's was different from growing up in the 2020's

When I was a kid, mint chocolate chip ice cream used to be green. Now it’s white.

Soft drinks and such had flavors. Now drinks have colors! I’ll have the blue powerade please. :slight_smile:

That is a big difference. And one that is likely to shape the very fabric of a persons being.

Trying to think of something about the seventies I didn’t eventually hate outside of select musical groups.

Nope, can’t do it.

It was about the mid seventies that the sexual revolution began. About 1975 magazines like Penthouse started showing full frontal nudity. Things took off from there. … The acid wave finally died out in the early seventies. Before that everyone was seeking enlightenment by doing LSD. The Grateful Dead did a song about that called “Estimated Prophet”. In 1973 America pulled the last of its troops out of Vietnam, and that chapter in history came to a close. I think it was in 1975 that Saigon fell, and the Vietnamese “boat people” desperately tried to get out before the communists took over. People stopped doing acid and started taking Qualuuds and Seconal - sedative hypnotics. About 1976 Colombian marijuana started to reach Oklahoma - much more powerful than the Mexican weed we had been getting. In 1977 I joined the army, but that is another story.

I was born in 1973 but don’t remember much of the 70’s. I mostly “grew up” in the 80’s.

In the 70’s, sour cream & onion potato chips actually used to taste like sour cream & onions.

Now they taste like cardboard.

In 1970 I was eleven years old.
