    The guy in the cube next to me still texts using a T9 phone....jesus it's so goddamn annoying when I can hear it

    I for sure still download music, I didn't think that's that old school.

    #3 86 days ago

    I recall playing outside... last night.

    Odin, who is your avatar? Some reason it reminds me of Billy from a Twilight Zone episode...

    #5 86 days ago

    It's Billy alright, but not from the Twilight Zone. Care to guess?

    #6 86 days ago

    I believe that's from an Alfred Hitchcock presents, although I don't know the episode name. I recall the kid thinks it's a toy gun but it's his dad's real revolver. Definitely Bill Mumy. Nicest guy in the universe. Has the funniest Jonathan Harris stories I have ever heard.

    No idea other than what rdoyle mentioned.

    Yep, it's called "Bang You're Dead" and served as a public service announcement about handgun safety in regards to children.

    Must have been a real shocker in it's day.

    A lot of the stuff on this list is stuff I still do from time to time. Sometimes you still have to burn a cd or dvd, I still download music although not as often and never with limewire. It's been a while but you can still go buy a cd, and you can still use the headphones at the record store.

    #10 86 days ago

    Geez, some of those ones in the list got me right in the feels. The Last one OMG. killed me. The Gameboy one made me laugh out loud IRL.

    I do some of the other ones occasionally - I DO like printing directions out. My wife thinks i'm crazy. "Why don't you use WAZE?!" then her phone dies.

    #11 86 days ago

    I still have a landline and have never owned a cell phone.

    I like writing down directions, just a list of highway numbers usually, just in case.

    Same here , I would write out the mapquest directions. Not sure why ???

    GTFO

    #15 86 days ago

    I also write down directions.

    #16 86 days ago

    I did about half of these things in the last week, now get off my lawn while I yell at the clouds.

    #17 86 days ago

    Not on there, but I still write out checks and mail them in envelopes.

    as does every PBR customer!

    REMEMBER WHEN YOU DID THIS?

    Buying used games cheap: Picking up/buying most EM games for under $100 and most WPC Bally/Williams used games were under $800.

    #21 86 days ago

    But do y'all still do this?

    I mean we'd call that a girls bike out here so not exactly the same but close.

    #23 85 days ago

    I remember making popcorn & melting butter before this came on

    A high rise handlebar and banana seat do not make a bike a girl's, that was the style in the late 60s & the 70s. I wish I still had mine, with flecked green metallic paint and rear racing slick!

    #27 85 days ago

    I watch those old Alfred Hitchcock presents if I'm up real late. Comes on after Twilight Zone. Rarely are they as good. But there are quite a few gems like the one Peter Lorre bets Steve McQueen his car for a finger.

    #28 85 days ago

    I remember changing batteries on my Game Boy. I think it was 4pm, yesterday. Was showing it to my kid for the first time

    Quoted from DanQverymuch:

    Yes I know when you old guys grew up it was more of a don't ask don't tell thing and there's nothing wrong with that.

    #30 85 days ago

    At least we didn't ride bikes colored like some j-pop game.

    #31 85 days ago
    Quoted from o-din:

    I still have a landline and have never owned a cell phone.

    I was pretty much forced by peer pressure to get a cell phone to send text messages. I thought cell phones would be a fad. I still refuse to turn on the "data" button. Some invisible person always wants to update some app or add some feature that I don't need or want. My friends told me that I was living in 1976 before I got a cell phone and I just laughed at them, but I did get a flip phone. Sometimes I wish I had not purchased it.

    #32 85 days ago

    If I cringe almost everytime the phone rings at home, especially when I answer it, why the hell would I want to carry one with me?

    #33 85 days ago

    1) I burned a DVD last week. Still do CDs once in a while, but usually it's easier to use a memory stick
    2) I only have a land line. Never owned a cell phone
    3) Took the package off a CD about 3 months ago
    4) Printed out mapquest directions in October
    5) Drank out of the hose last summer
    6) Played outside Sunday

    When I was a kid I cut the grass with one of these for awhile. I was super excited when my dad finally got a gas mower and couldn’t wait to use it. I would lay money down that kids don’t get excited over mowers these days

    My neighbor is like 85 y/o and still kicks it what that shit, dude is a beast.

    Honestly I wish I still had one. They are actually great for quick touch ups between weekly cuts as long as you keep the blades sharp. Also, get off my lawn!!

    I mowed grass for money as a kid with a push mower. My dad refused to buy a self propelled lawn mower. Now, I own a riding lawn mower and I refuse to ever push a mower again...

    #38 85 days ago

    The changing battery on Gameboy was a dumb one. May as well said played my NES for the last time. I'm constantly changing or charging batteries for controllers/tablets. AA/AAA batteries are still here.

    #39 85 days ago

    The last time you rubbed one out to National Geographic or your mom’s Cosmopolitan magazine. What?

    My late Dad had a semi-automatic sharpener for those types of lawn mowers. Made in Lindsey, Ohio.

    #41 85 days ago

    I can remember going down the road with a beer and not worrying about a thing.

    #42 85 days ago

    Technically, it was Lorre’s wife’s car... great episode.

    I still watch shows like this...

    And that story was told again in a "Tales from the Unexpected" episode, hosted by Roald Dahl (who wrote the original story!)

    Quoted from JayDee:

    I'd almost bet most have never seen a lawn mower up close other than on a commercial.

    We have 2 of those mowers at our camp. Last summer my boys (5 and 7 years old) hounded me to get them out so they could use them. Blades haven't been sharpened in maybe forever, so it was tough for them to use, but they loved it. You can mail the check and make it payable to cash, thanks.

    I think you're right, it's the lower crossbar ("stepover") from the neck to the vertical seat support (or lack thereof) that signifies a girls bike. They were designed that way back in the 1800s when women wore dresses, so it wouldn't show too much leg when they hopped on.

    Mine had blue flecked metallic paint - damn I loved that bike! I can still remember seeing it for the first time on my birthday - thanks again dad!

    I use Bill pay thru my bank, they write the check, not me.

    I just get a money order for Steve.
