We're already three pages into this thread, old man, and not a single 'Back in my day' story yet for us whippersnappers? And I've already heard the one about the time you caught the ferry over the Shelbyville...

Pfft! You kids don't even remember the original Matrix! This one we're living in now - you want to have seen how it was in MY day! Sometimes you were an hour late for work cos the system kept buffering. And don't even start about the traffic on the way home! Matrix 3.0 my ass!

In Primary School, we used to write in pencil, but, first day of Secondary School we were inducted into the arcane mysteries of writing in ink:



Imagine 35 eleven-year-olds doing this on average once a day: every desk, book, pair of hands and uniform had its inkstains. The fingers I used to hold a pen were permanently stained for about four years - until I moved to a school that was so progressive in outlook that they permitted the use of ball-point pens.

Where I lived it was like most Streets


Almost nobody had a CAR....

Around the Cities it would be quite different, with lots of Buses and Trains + Cars.

Did they tell you ball point was bull**** and not used by reputable adults? Sorta like how they told us we'd have to learn to do math without a calculator cause we wouldn't have them at the grocery store or whatever BUT GUESS WHAT BITCHES EVERYONE HAS A CALCULATOR AT ALL TIMES NOW AND I AIN'T DOING MATH EVER AGAIN!!!

This is to sincerely apologize for all the gratuitous trash talk I hurled at Trollheart, lisna and rubber soul. I joined this forum to get a taste of 2005 forum culture, and that I sure have gotten, but when this (or anything else) is done at someone's else expense it just becomes pathetic. You are top blokes and I've been a piece of $hit.

Ugh... time marches on. I can still do quite a few of the things that I could do in my younger days, but they're slowly diminishing. At 55 I just have to work a bit harder to retain it.

This song gets more real to me every year:

I remember, back in my day, I used to go to a Five and Dime shop to get my Wacky Packages to add to my collection.

I also had quite a few bikes and they'd usually end up with a banana seat and chopper forks like this:



Thats all I can remember though because... you know... I'm old.
