What was the most rebellious thing you did as a teenager or young adult? What were you rebelling against?

    I was the first one in the school's history to wear blue jeans and a tee shirt. It caused quite a buzz, but there was no dress code. I wasn't really rebelling against anything, I just wanted to be different.

    Probably perfect proof of one of the best ways to reduce rebellion; provide as much freedom as possible.

    Not sure exactly how old you are.
    Were jeans the symbol of laborers back then, or had they already become a widespread fashion?

    I am 67. We didn't have a lot of money and jeans were cheap.

    I guess going all goth. I was just being an edgelord because I didn't like being seen as a sweet mousy girl.

    Was always curious - what is goth all about?
    Does goth have a philosophy, set of beliefs &/or values, way of life? 

    "Edgelord" is a new term to me - suggest someone in leadership on the fringes of bohemian or non-mainstream society.

    I had a student who looked like this. They no-so-politely kicked her out of a Catholic school.

    Just doing a service,  not really being rebellious.. I found out I could order condoms through the mail on pretense that I was adult and selling them to the guys in school  'Everybody' wanted a couple mostly I think just to show off and have fun blowing them up.  
    Had to quit doing that when I got a warning. This was in early 60's. I was just ahead of my time, now there are condom vending machines in high schools.

    Yeah...It was kind of a status symbol back then to have that circular pattern on your rear pocket.

    So you were a precocious entrepreneur, hey?
    Did it lead to you later going into business - adult shops maybe?

    No never got interested in selling adult toys kind of stuff at all but I had been in business selling magazine subscriptions, all-occasion cards, 5 year guarantee light bulbs,  etc. door to door. Getting into selling condoms was a bit of a fluke.

    'Course I should have and I think I would have but back then we were still getting rum issue and that -I think helped me develop addiction to alcohol and getting in trouble.. Anyway I got out of the Navy after 9 years -before I was kicked out. 
    I finally quit booze about 3 1/2 years ago because I 'had enough'  could not enjoy doing booze anymore after about 45 years.
