Naah.
The historical/attitude side to the 60s has been outlined by moi. Its an observation. The word history come from His Story...... and Ive given my understanding of it. You can see now why history is not as reliable without accurate facts to back it up. I try to do that, but in any summation, its still the individuals viewpoint.

The rest is politics.

Thanks, Becky. We had a C25 from 1987 to 1998. Loved that boat. I still have the C25-stoop!

Re: What did we Learn from the 60's?

Fastinating. (to quote one of my favorite 60's characters)
How a thread starting by observations of how we see each other evolve into a thread about our interactions with government. Please:
This is about lessons learned and shared. Not about Politics. Lets keep political parties, religions and things we cannot control out of it.
BTW- I did not take my name from Newt Gingrich. I took it to support my medical students who were being abused and called names(newts) by a particular academic surgeon. But that is another story.

Spock says to Kirk
"Captain I don't understand why when I asked the humans What did we Learn from the 60's? they all went nuts. It is not logical."
Kirk says to Spock
"Well your Vulcan side wanted to learn , but your human side just wanted to put a piece of cheese in a maze and watch while the humans ran around clonking their heads on the walls.
Dammit Spock your half human don't you feel anything!"

A couple of posts have been removed. There are other places to visit if you want to rant on only about politics . Thanks guys, there is a limit.

Re: What did we Learn from the 60's?

So then:

We are all agreed on the following points.

  • Catamarans are better than Monohulls/
  • Lambrettas are way better than Vespas.
  • English soccer is much better than American football.
  • Ice Hockey is overated.
  • Any decade in history is like any other decade in history except for the differences.
  • Sonny and Cher sucked.
  • Tiny Tim was the best.
  • Rowan and Martin were weird.
  • Captain Kirk and his crew will live in memory forever.
  • Eric Burdon is much better than Hermans Hermits.
  • Guano is unappreciated by certain mods.

Probably because I have to deal with it everyday, in one form or another.

Its a funny thing. I have an interactive chat forum for a project that I am involved with, about 5000 members, and the abuse given and taken on there is perhaps 10 times higher than here. We have moderators on each board who have different levels of reactions and squeamishness to certain comments. After a period of time, the mods develop a 6th sense of what to clamp down on and who is losing the grip in a discussion.

Its a fine balancing act. Given that my board is medical, the abuse is wrapped in verbal eloquence that is insanely sarcastic or just plain anatomically accurate.

I appreciate the work you guys do.

It also is strangely liberating to be able to let loose on a subject and containing it in respectful terms but allowing the Brit sarcasm to flow for those that recognise it. On my board..... I find it best to have no opinions.
Guess C.F. drew the short straw.

You would not be surprised then at the little pm messages that I get in the morning when I log on. Animosity on toast is a daily breakfast.

No sir, I would not.

I knew when I burbled on the 60s, it would be a fine line between a political discussion and an observation of what triggered changes. Any one 55 and over on this board would have experienced the 60s... in different ways and chemically enhanced or not. I experienced the 60s as an army brat in many countries, and saw the results through the eyes of the military and first hand observation of armed reaction to the political tensions of the time.

The most facinating thing was that each time we were posted overseas, and then returned to the U.K. it was in our face noticeable the changes in dress, culture attitudes and respect. Britain kind of led the vanguard of fashion in those days... It went from short hair to long hair and weird clothes on the street. It was perplexing to me as a youth trying to find a place in the world. I wondered why people were doing all these things. Its something that cannot be answered except through hindsight and evaluation of all the events of that time period at a later date.

It is what it is.
