People talked to each other, instead of texted to each other.

This. One of my friends texted her boyfriend from a separate room the other day. One goddamn door away.

I remember when everyone was a Pokemon trainer. Everyone took their Game Boys everywhere. Walk to the shop to buy some stuff, and get challenged or something lol. People sitting on the curb battling or trading, or the cards to when you'd shuffle through each ones deck like "got, got, got, got". It was good way to meet and just interact with others.

I remember how when in the back seat of my parents car I'd always have to wait for the streetlights to be able to play on my Game Boy because the screens didn't have light themselves...

I remember when the internet made a ghastly noise before working, and if mum picked up the phone the internet stopped working...

ha yeah when other people in the house would get annoyed that they couldn't use the phone becasue i was on the internet.
When we had to actually all get together to play video games with each other
When you would go to the video store and hire movies
Playing arcade machines and being wowed by the amazing graphics
When you had to get up and walk over to the tv to change the channel
When i had to get photo's developed and had a limited amout of photo's that i could take and having to wait until i picked them up to see if they turned ou any good or not.
When buying a magazine was how you found out about new music or new video games
Having to organize meeting up with friends and actually meeting up/finding each other with no mobile phones
Having to use the street directory/maps to find where your going
Been restricted to the length of the phone cord as far as talking privately.
When games took forever to load.
Having to complete a game in a single play through/no save points
Playing for fun and not a KDR
We all used to collect cd's
having to rewind the tape to hear my fave song or fast forward to skip a bad one.
Recording music off the radio.
Using a key to open my car.


That'll do ^^;

Simple idea, abet fun. What do you remember as a child that isn't true now?

I remember when...
...I actually had to "roll" up the windows in a car!
...The Oregon Trail was a ground breaking game!
...You knew friends were over when there was 6 bikes in your yard!
...The original phone symbol would be understood!
...Computers had 32 mb of RAM!

What are some things you remember?

I still have to roll up the windows in my one car. So, there's that.

I remember that too.

I find this fun, considering my kids will grow up in such a different world than I did...

I remember when
...the only people with cell phones were Doctors and the wealthy
...pagers were a thing a lot of people had
...pay phones were on every corner, and in my school growing up!
...you had to wait until Saturday morning to watch cartoons
...vehicles with a stick shift were common
...you backed up your computer information on a floppy disc
...America Online's 3.5 inch floppy discs were super helpful when re-written over to do what I mentioned in the previous bullet

I mean really, how many people under 25 realize what this symbol actually is:

Cause I used those growing up to save files...

I remember when "White Fang" and "Arachnophobia" came out in the movies.
When the only video games you could play while camping was at an arcade.
When the San Diego Zoo had a sea lion pit.
When Super Nintendo came out.
When forests in Yellow Stone National Forest still looked like a burnt cookie.
The 1st He-man series was on tv during the afternoon.
Floppy drives, cassette tapes, and A tracks were in use.

I remember when I used to go out every evening at 6pm to meet with my friends and just be there talking about random stuff. We didn't go anywhere, we stayed outside the house. None of us had cellphones.

When I didn't have a cellphone and a computer, I would spend my time better, socialize more and I wasn't as lazy as I am now XD for the record, I had my first computer at 19 and my first cellphone at 23.

Now you just text your friends and hardly see each other...:[

I remember when Beanie Babies were really popular. Heck, I still have my collection (even though I haven't collected any new ones in years).


I also remember when Konami made great games and were a well respected video game company. Too bad they drastically went downhill!

I remember when

- There were no cell phones / pagers
- There were no personal computers
- There were only 4 TV stations (ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS)
- Typing meant using a mechanical typewriter.
- Pong was cutting edge
- Kids were allowed to play outdoors unsupervised
- You could buy cigarettes from a vending machine, and smoke them anywhere.
