- You could actually take your TV's somewhere to get fixed.

- You recognized everything under the hood of your truck.

- When you flushed something, it disappeared.

- You knew how much it cost to mail a letter.

- You could burn trash without the fire department and SWAT team showing up.

*Jelley shoes and parachute pants were all the rage one year..and the following year it was button up Izods and boat shoes.

*for the ladies...Wings (a la Farrah Fawcett) were in your hair...and not on your pads.

*You knew Mr. Rogers when he had dark hair.

*Bread was also considered a form of cash AND the name of a band

*You thought it was a possibility that the singer Madonna really was, "Like a Virgin".

*you owned an Atari and you felt luck cos you were the only family on your street who had one.

*you could watch fuzzy and stolen Showtime and HBO

* Playing kickball, hide & seek and kick-the-can were afterschool pass times instead of sitting and spending the afternoon in front of a computer screen.

*you remember Ma Bell

*You remember who Steve Austin and Jamie Sommers were.

*can remember that Sonny and Cher, Barbara Mandrell, and Donny and Marie were all prime time variety shows...along with The Carol Burnett show.

*If you remember a world without Sony products

Answer: First, for the names of telephone exchanges, i.e. PEnnsylvania 6-5000 (736-5000); then, to enable memorable 976 (premium-rate) numbers such as 976-TUNA (that was just a fishing-conditions report, you pervs!). Text messaging became popular before internet URLs superseded vanity numbers for marketing purposes, so the numbers persist.

You remember the Polaroid pictures that you actually had to "shake it like a Polaroid picture" as Andre 3000 urged us to do in the one-hit wonder, "Hey Ya" (later ones didn't require this, though I think they kept the idea as a marketing point).

Apparently the film (and cameras!) are once again available due to the efforts of The Impossible Project.

And dragging it off-topic even further, they're working on an iPhone adapter for their modular film processing unit -- yes, you'll be able to make instant Polaroid prints from your iPhone's display!

~Nods and smiles~

Yup, I remember all this stuff!

I didn't see STAR WARS on the day it opened but it was soon after.

I haven't found SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE watchable since 1980 (when the original cast left).

I remember being in my local comic shop a few months back and getting into a chat about the Pink Panther movies. The manager of the store is somewhere in his sixties and the day I was there, he had a young kid working there who was maybe 20...if that!

The kid was going on about how much he enjoyed the Steve Martin version of Inspector Clouseau and he honestly had no idea who Peter Sellers was...needless to say, the manager and I soon set him straight.


Dennis ... getting old and proud of it!

You remember when TV stations signed off the air for the night.

Or air conditioning being an option rather than standard equipment. Or, wing vent side windows! (You know, the small triangular panels that pivoted out, that were ahead of the part that rolled down.)

Cars that wouldn't start unless the seat belts were fastened (often leading to the seat belts being fastened across the seat, then sat on...) Later, seatbelts that were either built into the door, or motorized and run on a track over the top of the doorframe.

Cars with dashboards you could stick magnets on.
AM-only radios as standard equipment. Setting presets by tuning to a station and pulling the button out, and selecting them by pressing the button to make the pointer actually move across the dial to the station -- with a satisfying "chunk!" sound.

Ordinary cars that weren't front-wheel drive.

Having a 5-speed being important enough to deserve a badge for it on the trunk.
Or an Automatic Overdrive (maybe just a lock-up torque converter, but it sounded cool).
Or Fuel Injection.
Or ABS.
Or a Turbo.

Ah yes...I remember when TV stations used to sign off for the night. I knew it was time for bed when the Star Spangled Banner played and the station went to static. I used to like that.

Now, I'm paying way too much for dozens and dozens and dozens of TV stations I couldn't give a crap about ... I only actively watch maybe 5-6 channels ... and there's rarely anything I want to see on them.

Now, it's bedtime when the TV stations turn into various infomercials or advertisments for classic records featuring elderly rock/pop stars.

Sometimes I really miss the days when we had an antenna on the house and four channels on a black and white TV.

When I was in Atlanta, Georgia Public Television would sign off with "Georgia on my mind" - that was very cool!

And, I still drive a vehicle with vent windows - our summer 'toy' is a 1991 VW Westfalia camper. Must have been one of the last vehicles built with vent windows on the front doors!
