In England we beat our children with long sticks.. and they turned out allot better because of it! >_>



Yep they must have turned out a lot better especially when you consider they've raised such a productive and respectful generation of "young punks".

Remember when kids wore really baggy pants with their *bleep* hanging out? Now they wear 'em skin tight. Funny how 'style' can change so quickly.

Remember when google didn't exist? Maps were used for directions, phone books were used for contact information, encyclopedias were used for information... and that was only 12(ish) years ago!

I have to say, I greatly rely on google nowadays.
May you live all the days of your life.

I remember when a Jägerbomb used beer instead of Redbull.

I remember 8 tracks and then the gadget that came out that you could play your cassette in an 8 track player.

I remember no seatbelt laws, sometimes our cars were filled 2 kids high....squeezed in as many as you could.

I remember having a smoke in the 'smokeroom' in the hospital after my now 30 yr. old was born.

I remember having to wear tights under my pants and an undershirt on cold days.

I remember when rollerskate girls actually came to your window at A&W.

I remember when A&W was depicted as two guys named Albert and Walter on their commercials on TV.

I remember when my skates had 2 blades and had to be strapped on to my winter boots.

I remember Stompin' Tom Connors and The Irish Rovers.

I remember the Friendly Giant and his friend Rusty.

I remember The Tommy Hunter Show, Sonny and Cher, and I Dreamed of Jennie.

I remember crazy carpets and super-slider-snow-skates.
