Test Your Chronological Acumen



This YouTube clip (thanks Adam) contains fairly ancient Super 8mm footage of the high school where I work . . . and the question is this: using only hairstyles, cars, and clothing . . . what year was it shot?

1974?

I think I saw Randy Floyd in one of the football sequences.

It looks like 1975 to me, but god only knows what goes on in central Jersey. It could be 2005.

I vote 1976 based on my hairstyles and technology of the camera.

1969.

i will do some leg work and try to find out the actual year it was shot. maybe i can simply ask in the comment section on youtube.

Wait, you posed a "Test" question to the masses and didn't have the answer??? Unreal.

Nice work, quizmaster.

Squeaky said...

Crowd-source for the answer can be a good idea. Too bad for you this crowd is clueless.

'78 is my guess. too bad i'll never find out if i'm right. that was fun.

I think the guy in the "Michigan 75" jersey has the answer.
