When did the Sixties end?
Certainly a long time before I was born!
January 1, 1970 :tongue:
In reality I couldn't even say I know what the culture in the 60's was like. Putting grease in your hair?
Start: Oct 4, 1957
End: July 20, 1969
"The '60s ended for me that day....in 1978."
It ended for me around 1976, around the time disco started.
WRIF and DREAD?
A sentence in the preface of Rudy Rucker's Infinity and the Mind prompted me to ask this question.
"I started having ideas for it in that most Sixties of years, 1972."
On the one hand I can understand how, for some people, the Sixties extended into the seventies. Check out the clothes and hair of, for example, Dave Arnott, Stu Brown, Virginia Trimble, Catherine Cesarsky, zuma-beach-73, http://astsun.astro.virginia.edu/~rtr/photos/pasadena/ [Broken].
On the other hand, I can understand how July 20, 1969 is a fitting end date for the Sixties.
Which Oct. 4 event?
Over the last 20 years, I haven't watched much TV, and I have seen only a handdful of Simpsons episodes. Was Homer talking about a real event.
If you could understand how July 20, 1969 could be a fitting end to the sixties, then how could you not guess which Oct 4 event?
Premier of "Leave it to Beaver", of course! :rofl:
No, technologically, the 60's spanned from Sputnik to Apollo 11.
Culturally, the 60's spanned from Aug 2, 1964 (or May, 1961) to Aug 9, 1974 (or Apr 30, 1975).
when most of the losers got jobs and figured out the real world didnt work the way they wanted it to.
July 1971, after "number three" Jim Morrison passed away, following the deaths of Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix...
How about Aug 30, 1970, on the Isle of Wight?
There are some people still living in the 60s.
You do realize that physicists are a bit slower at catching up to trends right. When it comes to trends, they travel at near the speed of light. :surprised
April 12, 1989 the day Abbie Hoffman died.
It's all in the mind, you know.
