Are You a Child of the 60's?

The 60's were a crazy time. Crazy music, crazy clothes, and CRAAAZY people! Sure, the Vietnam War was in full swing and people were scared of nuclear war. But in the end, was all good, at least, it was for many people.

Could you be a member of the Rucksack Revolution? Would you really be happier "trippin' with hippies" than "hangin' with your peeps"? Maybe this quiz will help you figure it out.
