About This Quiz

Ah, the good old days of bell-bottoms, vinyl records and television signing off at 1 a.m. No, really, if you're a Baby Boomer you'd probably agree that those were indeed the good old days!

Calling the era from the mid-'40s to mid-'60s the "baby boom" is definitely not misleading! The number of births in the U.S. continuously grew between 1946 - when World War II ended - and 1964, until gradually decreasing afterward. People born during that timeframe, the "Baby Boomers," made up a whopping 40 percent of the United States' population!

Some things that were commonplace back in the boomer period would seem unusual today, such as having the milkman deliver milk to your house, going through atomic bomb drills at school, and having to talk to an operator every time you wanted to make a phone call! Perhaps the most nostalgic stuff to boomers, though, are the then-popular musicians, games, and films. Do you know the name of the 1972 film that was the source of the infamous line: "I'm gonna make him an offer he can't refuse"?

If you're a Baby Boomer, get ready to take a leisurely trip down memory lane. If you're younger, then let's test your knowledge with this totally far-out quiz!
