After analyzing your answers, we've come to the conclusion that you're either not a Baby Boomer at all, or you've learnt to let go of the past and have moved on with the times. You enjoy the world as it exists today, and have decided to live in the present and to let the past lie in the past. Good for you!

Not bad! While your memory of some things is still a little blurry, you managed to get quite a good portion of the answers correct. This shows that no matter how much you grow and develop, a little piece of your heart will forever remain in the past, which is both a beautiful and admirable thing. Good on you!
