Les Femmes (et les hommes) D'un Certain Age - Baby Boomer Era Test

Real Estate Agent with Charles Rutenberg Realty Inc. 516-575-7500 NRDS ID#641625055



A good friend forwarded this Baby Boomer test to me the other day.  It was produced in July, 2010 by the good folks at stillblondafteralltheseyears.com.

I'm not usually one who participates in a lot of surveys, or forwards chain letters or jokes but I did think this was lots of fun to take. I didn't anticipate how exciting it would be to go down the list of questions and call out the answers without even having to read the choices.

I did manage to get two wrong, however.

Maybe, that's a good thing!  


(Have a paper and pencil handy to record your answers.. Your mind isn't as sharp as it once was!) 


This is NOT a pushover test. It's a Baby Boomer era test! 


Have fun, but no peeking!

Painful to admit---but I knew the answer to all but one of these :)  I wonder if there is a place for "Recovering Boomers?"

Kathy - Same with me  - pictures/posters, t.v. commercials and sitcoms

Charles - I think you may have started something - recovering boomers?

Ellen - Wish I could say the same. Boomer years are defined as 1946-1964 with the peak between 1952-1957.

Sheila - Sometimes if you have older siblings in the house, you have a leg up on these types of things.
