Time Warp Memories


The relaxed and laid back attitude of the 1970s fostered an almost Alien language of the Hippie sub-culture. Generally Slang serves two purposes; first it lowers the formality of language and secondly it is used to identify with ones Peers. The tribe mentality of the 1970s was prime breeding ground for some great slang. So do me a solid, take a break from working on that MBA online, and chill with this flash back. I'll catch you on the flip side!
