    Never seen it, but when ever I hear" Easy Rider", I imagine "Queasy Rider" for some reason.

    Great movie but pretty depressing.

    The Navy base I was at 1969-1970 was on the fence about running it. They eventually did.

    I've got to say that I loved the film when it came out, but really thought the acting was pretty bad when I watched it recently. The best thing about the movie is the soundtrack.

    Let's try this: Who's going to be running in the next presidental election and why will they be the front running candidate. Answer this adequately and we'll figure out how much you've seen.

    Some of the more famous ones running are Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, and Chris Christie, and I want none of them to be elected. There has only been a few good presidents.

    Again, who will be running (the final dem and rep candidates). Your above answer rates a C- for a grade.

    I don't take government or politics, too much pressure! I never liked politics.

    Easy Rider is a classic, and even more of a cult classic. Produced on a shoestring budget as I recall. And sent Jack Nicholson's career soaring.
