This part was funny, it's "what Hollywood thought teenagers looked like at the time you became a teenager":

60's fashion (when I was a teenager) was like this...in fact I had a crocheted dress very like the white one in the pic.
We liberated all the women who came after us. cheers

You click on the link in the OP and put in your birthday and it gives you a picture of what your teen years were predicted to look like.

I already photo linked the pic. It is a John Hughes movie, Some Kind of Wonderful.

Deliberately so. I'm not into these kind of games.

Idea

IN the economics section of the timeline,  I reckon they are being much too kind to some of todays leading Western economies --  particularly in relation to the future for Italy, France and Britain...

I can see Italy dropping out of the top 10 well before 2050 rolls around..
Quite possibly Italy could be behind Canada, South Korea and Australia well before then.

Italy, shortly after Greece IMO, is likely to go down the pan within the next five years as the utterly dysfunctional European Union implodes.

At the risk of being condemned to eternity as a sexist male chauvinist pig, I'll bet you looked better in your rah rah skirt than I ever looked in my 1960s RAF uniform!

Adam Ant? I'm more of an Acker Bilk, Lonnie Donegan and Monty Sunshine groupie!!!!!!!

My late wife knew Lonnie and a lot of the celebrities of that era including people like Norman Wisdom. Her brother was an F1 racing driver and she used to get invites to a lot of parties and receptions. When we were first married I was a bit overwhelmed by it all!
