I don't mean this to be mean, but folks who born in the 40s-60s don't have the corner on the market for all the nostalgic things you have mentioned
here. I was born in 75, and experienced all that you described, except I didn't eat any worms, that just gross no matter when you were born.
Please stop making out like older folks are the ones who experienced this. Everything, and I mean everything, I also experienced. Yeah I had a
friend who ate worms, but I wouldn't.
Maybe I'm a special case and growing up in the country with old school parents made me different, but I don't think I am. Those of you here on ATS
who are born in the 70s or after, and have experienced all the great old school stuff mentioned here, stand up and say so!
And stop with the whole, things used to better routine,I remember a lot of old school things that we're not so cool, and while I do miss some of the
old school stuff, I appreciate some of the awesome stuff that we have currently.
Example: I'm on an iPad right now typing this using a touch screen. Even though I'm now used to this tech, and am good at using it, I am still
in awe that it's even possible. I mean wow! Would a young whipper snapper as you described be amaized by this, I think not.
