When I bought my first Manga, it was Naruto, so I tried reading it left to right. I was so utterly confused.

I remember thinking that using a rotary phone was the most fun thing ever, and wondering why we ever got rid of it. This was only alleviated by the fact that the next phone we had had a twirly cable that was fun to wrap around your finger. Speaking of phones, I remember when we got our first set of cordless phones and all the problems we had with the phones getting lost in my older siblings' rooms so we went back to the cord type phone.

I also remember my sister telling me that I was born in a toilet (she has later clarified that she only said that because I had broken one of her favourite barbies). The barbie incident, I do remember because she left her "skipper" doll right in front of the back door to the yard so I stepped on it and the head fell off.

If I have kids of my own, I have got to find them a retro rotary phone to play with. :3

I remember watching Disney movies that were old before I was even born(lion king, lady and the tramp,ect.)

At least the new generations won't have to rewind vhs tapes, that got old quick >_>

I remember eating cereal and watching Dragon Ball Z every single morning before going on the city bus for school. Coming home and watching anime and cartoon on Toonami for hours.

Not much has changed at all honestly.

Having to blow on gaming cartridges or cleaning them with Q Tips before playing them

Using the library or "word of mouth" to look up information or recipes

Walking around with a portable Walkman and using a pencil to fast-forward to a favorite song on a cassette

Recording songs from the radio using that cassette

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.


Pokemon is still big believe it or not, the Pokemon TCG is pretty fun to play; and there's a world championships coming up where you can win $25,000.
