How about buying 2 VCRs and hooking them up in tandom in order to get a grainy copy of Star Wars because buying a used grainy copy of Starwars on VHS from a rental store was more expensive.And buying a new grainy copy was obserdly expensive.

Where is putting the needle down on your favorite (and irreplaceable) record and praying you dont flench and scratch it up, listed? Or this one, having to log off the online mmrp game/internet inorder to make a phone call? Or hear this "WELCOME, YOU GOT MAIL!" when you go online.

is still better than the switch activated power windows which almost always breaks and very expensive to fix.

Waiting for a commercial to run to the kitchen for a snack & running the hell back when they were over.

Little kids today will not know the wonderful world of Mr. Rogers.

They should re-run his shows.

Spending the weekend typing a program from Compute-Gazette Magazine into a Commodore Vic20 or 64.

Maintaining a dirty magazine stash.
Steamer trunk full of 2600 game cartridges.
Quarter-per-game arcade machines.

Gerry, I read something a teacher wrote about giving a lecture, referring to TV snow while talking about the Big Bang. He realized no one listening was old enough to understand the reference.
"Professor, when the cable is not connected, the screen is blue!"

It was a rotary phone and your hard drive was a metal cassette tape and movies were on VHS, cigarettes were 23 cents a pack, gas was a buck and a new Les Paul was $500. We wore out vinyl records playing them over and over to get the lyrics wrong.

Run to the store to buy your parents cigarettes - when you are only 10.

Adjust the aerial antenna for better reception.

I used to do the record (12"vinyl, mind you)to tape thing with a handheld tape recorder. My Mom decided to throw in a random offkey "la la la" in the middle of a song. To this day, I hear it in my head whenever I hear the song.

Thanks 5cats...Our town didn't have touch tone service either. Our only phone in the house was a rotary dial wall mounted phone with a coiled handset cord about 30 feet long stretched. Does anyone recall living in a rural area where some people were on a party line?

If you wanted to "download free music", you called the radio station DJ and made a request, then sat patiently beside your radio and tape recorder.

#15: Phones with buttons? When did THIS sorcery begin?


#23: Vinal records had things printed on the paper sleeves sometimes. Large enough to read, unlike CD's micro-print!

Winding one's wristwatch, or alarm clock...

My kids friends have to speak to me first. I got so fed up with losing the cordless phones I insist on having one corded one- which means when all my free usage allowance runs out I hide all the phones but the corded one...works fairly well!!
