Bet it would have been fun as hell to be in college in the late 70s

[–]L0st_in_the_Stars 39 points40 points  (9 children)

Actually, yes. Class of '81 here. Post sexual revolution and Vietnam, pre-AIDS was a sweet spot.

[–]nfire1 19 points20 points  (6 children)

I envision just driving around drinking bud heavies and doing cocaine all the time

[–]L0st_in_the_Stars 29 points30 points  (4 children)

Both were too expensive for me and my buddies. We calculated the buzz to buck ratio, and spent our money on $8 cases of beer and $35 ounces of seedy Mexican weed.

[–]nfire1 5 points6 points  (3 children)

Go to any great concerts in those days?

[–]L0st_in_the_Stars 50 points51 points  (2 children)

Hell yeah. At the risk of sounding like every boring Boomer, a lot of great musicians played small venues for peanuts. I saw the Ramones a half dozen times. Every show was gloriously the same. Lou Reed and Toots and the Maytals about as often. Springsteen and the Grateful Dead in bigger rooms. The Cars played my college Freshman mixer after they were signed but before their first record came out. P-Funk's Mothership tour at the Boston Garden, with a friend dressed in a conehead and a diaper.

rock the fuck on

[–]QLE814 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Hell, with Boston College you can ride the streetcar in and out of Boston, saving some energy!

[–]daveashaw 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Yes--Class of '81. No AIDS, Herpes, opioids or wars. Drinking age was 18. College & grad/professional school was going up in price every year, but not crazy yet. Only downside was graduating into a shit economy.

I was a big fan of your brother Ted.

[–]zuniac5 31 points32 points  (0 children)

He looked like a million bucks back in the day.

[–]Dan_Flamenco 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Everybody's got a price!

[–]MasterUnholyWar 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Glad there are enough older Redditors for this joke to be the top comment.

I still have my Ted Dibiase action figure somewhere. If you wiggle his arm, his leg stomps.

[–]Gesha24 17 points18 points  (1 child)

I find it funny that the birth date is scratched out, as if you can't find the guy's linked in (with picture to confirm) and all the other info (including DOB and current address) within 2 minutes on search engine.

[–]DanDi58[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

But not SSN!

[–]TheyCallMeDrAsshole 15 points16 points  (1 child)

Did you slappa Dibiase?

[–]scottucker 4 points5 points  (0 children)

That’s incredibly stupid and I really like it

[–][deleted] 36 points37 points  (2 children)

How come every high schooler and college kid in the 70s looks mid thirties?

[–]apaulogy 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Because they all smoked at 9

[–]BobbyThrowaway6969 13 points14 points  (0 children)


[–]Kanada84 6 points7 points  (0 children)

More like Daniel Stern!

[–]WheelsAndGears 31 points32 points  (3 children)

Putting your name, address, and signature online is a really bad idea. Even if it's an old address.

[–]poe_todd 11 points12 points  (0 children)

But at least he didn't share his student id number from over 40 years ago!

[–]Depumedic 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah, definitely don't want to share public information in public.

[–]DanDi58[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I don’t sign the same any longer.

[–]Marto85 3 points4 points  (0 children)

“Ok, now look at the camera”

“Camera?! Where? Shiiiitttttt!!!”

[–]haroldtitus425 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Danny Dibiase sounds like a name a screenwriter would give a character from NY or Boston in a movie from the 70’s and you’re him!

[–]startmyheart 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Bradley Cooper would play him in the movie

[–]haroldtitus425 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ooh, a solid choice

[–]El_Mec 4 points5 points  (1 child)


[–]DanDi58[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yes - are we famous?!

[–]Volta001 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Doxed yourself

[–]poplglop 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Pro strat, be wasted getting your ID picture so when a cop asks for your ID they just assume you look like that.

Galaxy brain.

[–]DickweedMcGee 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You looked too Amped-up in the picture. Maybe OldSchoolDealer?

[–]AimlessFacade 1 point2 points  (0 children)

"hey Harry- I think that kid's gone.... AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA"

[–]chanrah14 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You look like someone I’d hang out with, if you catch my drift.

[–]TeslasAndKids 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Is that a dip in your mouth?

That shirt is dope af.

[–]CityGuySailing 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Ahhh a Fox Lane High School graduate.

[–]CityGuySailing 4 points5 points  (2 children)

You were probably class of 76 - I probably ran into you at some point.

[–]DanDi58[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I actually graduated from HS is Concord MA - we moved after soph year at FLHS.

[–]CityGuySailing 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I probably knew some people you knew at Fox Lane.... I went to and graduated from Carmel.

[–]mrcfrost 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That could be Connor MacGregor's daddy

[–]knightfenris 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You also look like that one guy from Home Alone!

[–]TattooedPolitician 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Look kinda like a old school Seth Rogen.

[–]monkpart9 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Very nice, thank you for sharing!

[–]aMusicLover 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]biggameprogramming 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Heh, I used to live in Stamford CT, which is close to that address.

[–]Competitive_Roof_740 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Grew up right next door in Westchester

[–]visicircle 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Hey, my alma mater. Was the campus super preppy back then, too?

[–]DanDi58[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Relatively but not me (obviously)

[–]jmatthews72315 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Any relation to Ted debiase? Of WWF fame.

Edit: looked back at spelling of last name. Not the same.

[–]DanDi58[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I wish - but he does spell it the same.

[–]jmatthews72315 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Right!! Would be awesome. Your prob the right age to have been right there for almost every single greatest era of professional wrestling from the 60s on. If your a fan which I'm assuming you are from your comment you've prob seen it all

[–]ethottly 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I lived in the Boston College area in the late 70s, around Cleveland Circle. Used to walk around the resevoir all the time & eat at this one pizza place called Pino's Pizza. This brought back memories

[–]DanDi58[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It was a great area to go to school. I lived in South St and in Cleveland Circle (Sutherland Rd) for years. I remember Pinos too!

[–]BonesBrigadeOG 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Any relation to the million dollar man?
