Revolutionary, which is true. I passed on the peace-love stuff and studied electrical engineering. I worked to change the world, and did it. However, I'm retired now, living a lifestyle familiar to very few of my contemporaries, except my old college roomie.

I'm with you. Mostly I listen to music on my cell phone. My ear buds are flat from 20hz - 20,000hz, and can crank out an ear-destroying 108dB at 1mw. When I was in college I was labeled a square, any time I wasn't sitting at the nerd table. All my friends loved SF (nobody did back then). One of my best friends (also retired) has a solid role in the new https://www.facebook.com/BrowncoatsIndependenceWar fanflic, and has just been cast in a new zombie flic. She was heavily involved in theater as a college student, but made her living as a medical imaging tech. Now that she's retired she finds there is good demand for almost 70 female actresses who can still memorize their lines.

Yeah, we're still in touch. Is that "square" or is that "square?" Now where did I put my pocket protector...?

Ha, I was surprised to find that I'm a Revolutionary. It's what I'd secretly like to be, too!

half the questions I didn't even know an answer to. Still, it claims I'd have been a 'revolutionary', which is just not true as frankly I don't care about what happens in the world. I would definitely have been a tripper though, just like I am now, probably even more so.

Most of those questions would have to include "none of the above" for it to actually rate me. Very BAD quiz!

I may be a square but i love classic rock. I'm a libertarian and certainly not a social conservative. Why I'm square: 1) I hardly watch television and movies so I don't know what those shows are about or the stars names, 2) I measure my nutrition contents in my daily diet, 3) I wake up very early - 4:30 a.m. weekdays - to workout and have done this for over 35 years and 4) I hate to spend money but like to save and invest. Had this habit over 25 years. In other words I have a regimented lifestyle. My dad was in the armed services and a disciplinarian

Square for sure! Some of this I don't even know such as the "Breakfast Club" So I just went ahead and improvised. I knew I would be square LOL.
