   School opens time capsule buried by H.S. class of '79. Doobie Bros tickets, cutoff jeans, Fleetwood Mac album, empty Jack Daniels bottle. Unlike today's CYA and PC administrators... no one has a problem with this

Not any more. These are the same people running the show like a bunch of farking tightasses. It's like they think they can keep their kids from doing the same shiat they did.

My sister was class of '79. In my state, it was legal to drink at 18, so virtually all of the graduating seniors could.

Or perhaps Their parents just didn't give a fark. Which would explain a lot of boomer behavior .......

Class of '82.

Sounds about right. Those seniors were the best. Even when I was a fish.

First thing that came to my mind as well. I would have been a junior in 1979.

So yeah, the 70's rocked and then 1-21-1981 changed everything.

Well I'll be damned, drinking Jack Daniels in high school does have consequences.

My older brother went to high school in the mid to late 70s, and I went in the mid to late 80s. All things considered, his pre-AIDS, pre-Just Say No, pre-PMRC high school experience probably had a bit of an edge over mine.

My buddies and I buried a time capsule in 2003 at my high school. All I can remember is a copy of Ween's Quebec, a PS memory card, a Bud Light, a Sharpie marker, a note with contact info if found before we dug it up, and my contribution of a racket ball. There was more stuff but I cant remember. Fun stuff.

This. Before 1984, it was left up to the states to determine the legal drinking age.

That said, I get the impression (from the ads on the page) that this took place in Indiana, where the drinking age at the time was... 21.

leaving the next generation an empty bottle of jack is a good analogy for baby boomer operating procedures in general.

You can keep all the other crap in the capsue, give me the '79 Stevie Nicks and Christine McVie and I'll be sporting that same goofy face as Mick Fleetwood.

It really was a pretty incredible reproduction of that era (I graduated in 1975),from the cars to the clothes to the music and dope.

Ah Yes...1979...the 18 year old drinking age...GOOD TIMES INDEED!!! Too bad our good partying spoiled the fun for the future generations...oh well...we had fun times!!!

Nowadays, those kids would probably be charged with terrorism, placed on the sex offender registry, and ordered into counselling.

I guess you have to be trolling because this was 1979, not 1969.

Whiskey does not "age" once bottled. There is nothing alive in it and there is no wood to interact with.

People were still definitely listening to music on vinyl back then; 33rpm was standard speed for an LP. Other than that, I have no idea.

Try again sport. I lived through it.

I watched the helicopters land on the roof of the embassy in Saigon. I also watched as they pushed aircraft off the carrier decks to make room for the incoming refugees.
