I can identify with your rant but wish it was 1986 , no good for you as you wouldn't have been born yet but the feeling is the same , back then everyday was an adventure and anything was possible where now the path seems set and resistance to it futile.
Technology was our saviour but now it's our keeper.
I've learned that looking back is fine but if it makes you feel sad stop doing it , I've tried to stop doing it.
Keep calm and carry on.

The more I look in stores lately, the more I catch 80's themed things. I bought a 3-pack of over-the-calf 80's socks and an 80's style sweat suit a couple of weeks ago. It's like people are missing the same decade I've reminisced about for a decade...

There was the ever arching 2012 date that even tho always seemed completely far away and fake, when the day came and went without much more than another Friday I must admit I felt cheated. Cheated hard. Then since then all the other possible alternative conspiracy’s especially aliens and the ufo question seemed to be thrown away for nothing but political insanity on my part. Looking at where my mind has been the past 2 years with the US political stuff, the Balkanization of American people’s and intense censorship rampant online on my mind actually upsets me when I put it into perspective for myself.

If we're going back in time, I'll take 1971. If I only knew then what I know now 😊
They say youth is wasted on the young. At my age, there is no greater truth.

2006 on ats was fun. I believe ats chat was in its infancy and I was around spewing my drivel. Yet we have to grow up.. It sucks being responsible and caring about others feelings, and realizing the world is not our oyster. Yet we still have the future, and I feel perhaps some of our drivel still has a chance to come to fruition..
Ps thank god for my wife, and some of the old dogs on ats for giving a crap about me all these years.
