Some of those thing applied I guess, and I have a feeling many kids would've been better off wearing helmets back then.

I think "Remember when people weren't too lazy to Google the answer" should have been included on this list. I mean, seriously, "I don't know what that even is". How is that an acceptable answer when you have a smartphone?

Most of those things only apply to children of the early 1980s. That's when Hee Haw and Dukes of Hazzard was on TV. Only having 5 channels was in the 1970s.


I was around for all of the 70's

Not old enough to remember everything, but I was there.

Having to pick a switch was the worst, dude. Instinctively you go for one in the "small" category... but those suckers fly like the wind and sting like hell.

Hee Haw https://youtu.be/1FcUc2Tk0GQ Check!
Dukes - I had a crush on the General Lee but not on any of the other characters. LOL!
Wasn't allowed to watch cartoons on Sabbath.
Played in the dirt.
Folks never paddled me except with a bare hand.
Had rotary phones until mid-1990s
Had 3 TV channels & you might get lucky and tune something in on UHF if the weather was right - TV was black & white till the mid-80s when it finally had to be replaced.
Always said the Pledge.
Rode in the back of Ol' Lulabell the retired Navy ammo truck.
Recorded songs from the radio to make mix tapes for friends.
Played in the creek and never wore a bike helmet although I wasn't doing the wild riding my cousin and his buddies did on their mongoose dirt bikes.
