Back in my Day...
« on: May 27, 2010, 06:34:20 am »
So, as you may or may not be aware, one of these days, we are going to be the older generation.  We will have young whippersnappers looking up to us and not getting off our lawn.  So what will our tales comprise of?  Thinking back now already I'm amazed at all the things that have changed in my 20 years.  So, I figure we should start planning ahead and start considering the topics of our crotchety old guy rants.  So post here about the things you remember that are not as they were, regailling in the good old days.

Examples for you!

Back in my day, Pluto was a planet and water was exclusive to Earth.

Back in my day, raptors were lizards, not chickens.

Back in my day, the number of Pokemon was still in the triple digits, and we didn't have no pure Flying types neither.

Back in my day, they still showed new episodes of Digimon, YouTube Poops were generally frowned upon, Weegee was still popular, and people played good games like Haven and Hearth.
Who are you again and why in the world would you expect anything resembling rationality or civility in youtube comments?

Back in my day, wood wasn't invented and people didn't have names, they had numbers.

Back in my day, not everyone had their own cellphone, or their own computer.

Back in my day Nsync and Backstreet Boys were cool.
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

Back in my day, the television on the internet made by a few people in a basement wasn't better than the nationally syndicated crap with milions of dollars behind it.

Back in my day, this happened.



Okay, seriously now...



Back in my day, there weren't so many networking sites and most people still typed legibly.

Back in my day, CBBC was just a thing in the mornings and after-school, not a whole channel plus Cbeebies.

And there was a puppet aardvark named Otis.
