    Did anything good come out of the 70's?

    I just demolished 3 layers of the most hideous 1970's linoleum. How could they possibly think these were nice patterns I've still got the original 70's toilet, tub and sink in our bathroom ... and they're purple What the heck?

    So I pose the question, was there anything good that came out of the 70's?

    I must be like that. Someone has to hold the hippies from the 70's responsible for my toilet.

    When we were house-hunting one of the ones we looked at had a bathroom with Pepto-pink, Mint green, white and black tiles. If I remember the tub and toilet were a brownish-pink color. I wanted to gouge my eyes out.
    Everything I can think of that was made in the late 60's and early 70's was complete junk, including the cars.

    BTW, pink, purple, baby blue etc tiles and bathroom appliances were earlier than the 70's. The 70's colors were harvest gold, olive green and chocolate brown. Patterns were big and bold and US cars were crap. The glory days of AMF as well....

    30 to 40 year old styles are the most despised. Just wait 10 more years, and it'll be collectible. In the 1980s, everyone was sick of ranch houses and 1950s design. Now they are hot.

    In the 1970s and 1980s, Victorian houses were dirt cheap, because few people wanted them.

    Of course, Sturgeons Law says that "90% of everything is crud" which probably includes your vinyl floors.

    I would gladly trade out the purple for the mint green.

    Good choice in music, bad choice in Comedy. I agree he's better now.

    Hey, I see you're in the area. If you want it, come on down and pick it up. The flooring is all in bags, but I'm sure you can still salvage a few nice pieces

    The original hippies held a funeral for hippie-dom somewhere around 1969 give or take a year. Of course, what you call hippies
    continued to spread.

    I suggest reading up on the 70's

    For me, it was awful. But a lot of good came out of it, as well. Apple computers, pollution controls, seat belts.
    Let me think a while, maybe I can think of something that would be a good read.

    I debated calling them hippies in the 70's, however trust me ... there were definitely hippies left in the 1st half.
