Hi!   Are you a Baby Boomer? Or did you absorb so much from your parents (or grandparents!) that you feel like one? Okay, then you should recognize these classics from the '50s & '60s. If any of them evoke memorable moments in your life, please log in and post a comment!

Try our Baby Boomer Trivia Quiz!

The quiz has 1500+ unique questions, many of them devilishly tricky. You can try the easiest/hardest ones first if you like, and we keep track of the questions each logged-in user has seen, so you can play over & over and never get the same question twice.  Have fun!

Just wondering if you place a limit on the number of times you recycle electrons. Too many times, and they get worn out, right? A good example is the electrons in the atom at the bottom of your home page. I've been watching them for weeks, and they seem to be slowing down.

If you do limit them, you must introduce new electrons into the system to make up for the discarded ones, and that would make your claim, "This site is brought to you using 100% recycled electrons." false advertising.

Other than that, I enjoy your site very much.

I enjoy browsing the "Baby Boomer Museum" even though I am not a baby boomer.  I wonder what an equivalent site will be composed of in 50 years.  Will the idea of going to a theater to see a movie be funny, how about driving a car and then buying fuel, living in a private house, progress has not stopped and things we enjoy now will seem antique to young people at that time.
