I'm happy i'm not older, 60's seemed good but the 70's very depressing musically and with lack of jobs etc.

I was a kid in the 80's and enjoyed lots of classic films, tv shows, birth of home computers which was great to be a part of, seeing it evolve from tiny 1k computers to 2 ghz PC's and more.

Then as a teenager musically it was great in the early 90's with lots of bands i really got into. The 90's with the internet arriving as well was again a good time to see that go from strength to strength

Seeing the lack of jobs for young people and the terrible music which seems popular i'm so glad i'm not a teenager nowadays.

80's/90's were great times

What's depressing about 70s music? People were gettin' funky in the disco scene and partying hard in the rock scene. Admittedly, bands suddenly felt free to actually cover topics other than the (ironically) depressingly generic "I love this girl so much!" staple, but there's easily enough choice to skip any negative themes. I was a teen in the 90s but actually went to 70s and 80s stuff to avoid the miserable whining of grunge/britpop and lack of inspiration in the pop scene.

You should attend to more historic lessons.

I do know that life in the stone age wasn't as I described it above. They lived in smaller tribes, that only had a few women. And the tribes usually fought each other for the other tribes' women. (or they made deals and traded their women for awesome lightsabers).

Conclusion: more man had to "share" the same woman, and not vica versa (as I sad above).

I also know that women didn't look like *that* in the stone age. Who would feed and drive them around? (she would have to eat a whole T-Rex to satisfy her hunger, right? And it was very dangerous to hunt T-Rexes in that era). Venus of Willendorf is just a small statue that is a symbol of fertility.

Now excuse me, I have to go learn about the French revolution, The civil war and about Reformation and Antireformation for the test.

Thank you for ruining my pun.

I always used to say the 60's, arguably the greatest time in pop music history. The Beatles, the Zombies, the Beach Boys (Pet Sounds and Smile anyway), etc. Those bands have a huge influence on the stuff I write. The 90s as well... there were some amazing pop bands if you did a little digging, like Jellyfish.

All in all I'm happy with the time I'm in now, though. More people have more rights and less prejudices, information is far easier to come by, violence is going way down (despite what you see on the news), heck, even TV is in something of a new golden age right now with shows like Breaking Bad, Louie, Mad Men, Parks and Rec, Arrested Development (returning soon! Yay!)... and of course iPhones and iPads are nice, too. : )

Regardless of the fact that nowadays we have all this technology which I love, as some have stated, I wouldn't trade when I was born for another time. My time was the 60's and 70's. couldn't have been better! Before AIDS and all, sex was free and easy with basically no worries! It was the absolutely best time for music (rock n roll), you could hitchhike anywhere you wanted to go (remember that?) for free, concerts were killer and how much of today's music do you think will still be bad-ass 40 or more years from now? Insane party-ables were totally rad (did more than my share of that ). Generally easier living with less stress, people were nicer to each other, kids didn't have electronics then, so we played OUTSIDE all day, sports, etc. we were always in better shape and not lazy. We appreciated what we got with none of this entitlement mentality. We worked for it. And, being too young to have gone to Vietnam and Korea and too old to have to go to Desert Storm and the others got us out of having to do that which was cool! It was the perfect time to be growing up! Local sporting teams were winning big-time, you could have big bonfires at the beach any night. I could go on and on, you get the picture. Baby-Boomers, man. The real deal.

I see that you've attended history class.

Let me just add that the right to have women applied in the first place to the strongest men of the tribes.

Well, at least one thing I wouldn't have to worry about.
