This would be the best way to do it if you are canceling at the last minute. I mean, who sits by their computer or cell phone all the time? (who? no I don't~~~~nope~~~I do not)

The test indicates that the '60s influenced today - the music, the movies, etc. So these are not necessarily things from the '60s, only influencers. And if you haven't heard of the people or groups in the poll, you must not have grandchildren!

I'm a hippie.

I chose Depp because I recently re-watched 'Finding Neverland' and enjoyed it, but couldn't remember the last movie I'd seen Jones in, LOL

I'm certain that even if they'd had my "real" choice options, I'd still have ended up as a Square. ;-)

*sings "I Enjoy Being a Square" to the tune of "I Enjoy Being a Girl"* ;-)
Same here. Have to say, I was shocked when "square" showed up on the screen. Something's wrong with that test I say. It must have been the disk/cd music choice, not like they gave a really good selection I don't think of my phone or ipod as an elaborate music setup

That's what had me confused. I thought the questions were supposed to be about what I thought/did in the 60s. Then I saw choices for current entertainers and shows. Made no sense to me at all.

Then there was the question about your trip of a lifetime. What are you supposed to answer if you've already been to 2 of them and the other 2 don't interest you? This little quiz is sorely missing "none of the above" choices.
