The Nostalgia Thread
« on: October 06, 2010, 11:02:30 pm »
I am in the process of nostalgiaing so hard right now.  The last time this happened, I made the back in my day game, which turned out to be a resounding failure as people missed the point.  This time I'm going to make it more straight forward.

This is your place to post about memories of yesteryear.  Things you miss, things you remember, things you long for from simpler times, things that blow your mind because holy carp the 90s were 10 years ago!

And on that delightful note, I reitterate what I just mentioned in the Offtopic Topic, about memories of 60 cents a liter gas.

Also, dinosaurs should not have feathers.

Wait what? Why not? And I don't mean ALL dinosaurs, but some theropods probably did.

I hear ya. I feel that way all the time. Time goes way too fast. The crazy part is when you mention something like a few months ago and people say that it was "ages ago". Its gets even worse the long time passes.

I remember that one time Marty came to the forum drunk. It reminded me of all those times I came to the forum drunk.

Get ready for the "regret thread". You'll be posting it tomorrow.

Pat, I'm nowhere near drunk enough for that.  I'm serious with this thread.  It's something I've been thinking about for a while.

There were nine planets in the solar system.

Only Saturn had rings.

Cartoons were only on on Saturday morning.

Libraries had advanced data storage systems called microfische.

There were four television stations, and they were on for almost 18 hours a day.

Saturday Night Live was funny.

Na-noo, Na-noo!

I remember playing Theme Hospital every day, and never getting bored.

I also remember when I could play games over and over again without getting bored.

Also, I remember watching this really great movie about this mouse trying to find some rats who were hyper intellegent and I can't for the life of me recall it's name and would be very, very happy if someone reminded me.

The Secret of NIMH, good movie, though I always get a little bit disappointed when I realize that the super intelligent rats used magic instead of SCIENCE!

Speaking of, I miss the days when science was cool.  Remember when rockets were awesome?  Why don't people think that rockets are awesome anymore?

And just the other day I watched one of those DC animated movies, and now I miss Justice League.  The movie had the original voice actors for Batman and Superman, but that just made me miss it more.  I gotta watch the Question Authority arc again, if only for the Superman VS Captain Marvel fight.

A really nostalgic thing for me is going to one of the local railroads. My family used to go there all the time when I was really little (which fostered my inordinate love of trains) and seeing all the steam locomotives going from here to there is always a great thing. And their sheer size is absolutely mind boggling.

On the movie front...

Alien and Jaws were the scarriest movies.

Kelly LaBrock was hot.

Jabbah wasn't in Star Wars:A New Hope and Greedo never got off a shot (screw you George Lucas)

On the railroad front...

Watching five or six big old GE diesels pulling a coal or grain train belching balck coloumns of smoke in to the air.

Cabooses !  (Cabeese?)

Every year there would be a model train show at the Northtown shopping mall (back when 'malls' were a new thing). You could get anything you needed at Sears

I remember that game.  It always seemed vaguely racist to me.  "Only zoombinis with certain traits can cross the bridge."  "Make sure only similar zoombinis sit next to each other."

Winning made me feel kinda guilty <_<
