    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    How far we have come



    I just wanted to start a thread where we take a look at how things have changed with in our various life times. So here I will post a few things as they where when I was born and how they are now.

    Here is the computer my parents had when I was born.


    Here be the telephone of the day


    Here be the Television of the day


    The gaming console of the day


    and last the car


    I actually do miss that car, but to be honest the modern day equivalents of it still blow it away in almost every way.

    We had earlier cars, but I remember when dad bought this new. 65SS Chevelle. Mom hated driving and later traded for a Nova.

    I do remember these.




    The little "chad" bin was great for pouring over siblings' heads.|


    This stuff makes me fart just thinking about it.






    Yum.





    Hello? Hello!?




    Learning to ride a bike was better back then.




    Zero tolerance? **** you!




    Everything was waaay cheaper, and you could order anything from the back of a comic book.
