View Full Version : Then & ......

1930's 40's, 50's, 60's and 70's !!

First, we survived being born to mothers who smoked and/or drank while
they carried us.

They took aspirin, ate blue cheese dressing, tuna from a can, and didn't
get tested for diabetes.

Then after that trauma, our baby cribs were covered with bright colored
lead-based paints.

We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, doors or cabinets and
when we rode our bikes, we had no helmets, not to mention, the risks we took hitchhiking.

As children, we would ride in cars with no seat belts or air bags.

Riding in the back of a pick up on a warm day was always a special

We drank water from the garden hose and NOT from a bottle.

We shared one soft drink with four friends, from one bottle and NO ONE
actually died from this.

We ate cupcakes, white bread and real butter and drank soda pop with
sugar in it, but we weren't overweight because......

We would leave home in the morning and play all day, as long as we were
back when the streetlights came on.

No one was able to reach us all day. And we were O.K.

We would spend hours building our go-carts out of scraps and then ride
down the hill, only to find out we forgot the brakes. After running into the
bushes a few times, we learned to solve the problem.

We did not have Playstations, Nintendo's, X-boxes, no video games at
all, no 99 channels on cable, no video tape movies, no surround sound, no cell
phones, no personal computers, no Internet or Internet chat
rooms..........WE HAD FRIENDS and we went outside and found them!

We fell out of trees, got cut, broke bones and teeth and there were no
lawsuits from these accidents.

We ate worms and mud pies made from dirt, and the worms did not live in
us forever.

We were given BB guns for our 10th birthdays, made up games with sticks and tennis balls and although we were told it would happen, we did not put out very many eyes.

We rode bikes or walked to a friend's house and knocked on the door or
rang the bell, or just yelled for them!

Little League had tryouts and not everyone made the team. Those who
didn't had to learn to deal with disappointment. Imagine that!!

The idea of a parent bailing us out if we broke the law was unheard of.
They actually sided with the law!

This generation has produced some of the best risk-takers, problem
solvers and inventors ever!

The past 50 years have been an explosion of innovation and new ideas.

We had freedom, failure, success and responsibility, and we learned

With the exception of the lead painting on babies (wich is horribly dumb for anyone who has access to information) i've done all of those things in the 80's and the 90's. It still happens in the "3rd world" countries.

02-11-2006, 01:58 PM
Hey, isn't your generation the one that's babying us anyway? I mean, if everything you did was so great, why aren't we doing it today? Because the older generations are the ones shielding us, and turning us into what we are today.

Seconded. Much of that sounds like parts of my childhood and that was in the early 80's and 90's.

If Maria hasn't gone tally schizophrenic (wich i seriously don't see it because there are no true remarkable psychotics on this BBS), please tell me wich one of the Duskygreens is the real one? Please fucking say it, because as much as i could hate someone, i would never be enough of a chicken shit to block it as long as what i'm reading is real.

02-11-2006, 02:57 PM
I expected stupid replies like the ones above.
Thank you for not disappointing me.

02-11-2006, 03:23 PM

consider the option of meeting me in person, you pile of shit. I'll love to show you what i'm made of, you useless fucking son of a whore. That neurotic useless whore that made the catastrophe of shitting you into this world can bend in her knees and beg for a pitty that'll never come for all i care.

02-11-2006, 03:27 PM

02-11-2006, 03:35 PM
were you expecting love from me? i'd love and hate anything real, but not something that won't even show me a nearly real facade.

02-11-2006, 03:38 PM
Loving ur grammar it's tik init, an yo threatening is making shit run down the side of my right leg.

02-11-2006, 03:45 PM

02-11-2006, 03:49 PM
Oh no Orange, i want to kill a loser. And this tool is rehearsing it for me.

02-11-2006, 03:53 PM
No, you're basically rehearsing how to feed trolls.

02-11-2006, 03:58 PM
My pal is here and i'm gonna watch MoskitoMan with him. Let's see if this shit goes anywhere.

02-11-2006, 04:31 PM
Y'know, for someone who constantly corrects spelling, you don't capitalize for shit.

02-11-2006, 04:35 PM
So is spellchecking.

02-11-2006, 04:39 PM
Oh, and you forgot a question mark. Also, spellchecking can also be one word.

02-11-2006, 04:39 PM

02-11-2006, 04:42 PM
spelingz fer selloutz. ghey selloutz.

02-11-2006, 05:01 PM
ur teh ghey selloutz lolz

Actually, I've seen this list posted in a bunch of places. It's true, to a point. It's not the kid's fault his or her parents are paranoid. It's not the parent's fault, either, 'cause the media spouts all this stuff and uncovers all these horror stories about kids swallowing whole bottles of Flintstones vitamins and sticking forks in power outlets and stuff.
I was my parent's fourth kid, so they were experienced with the whole thing and just went "whatever" and let me roll around in the mud and swallow pennies and walk alone to the playground and talk to strangers there - they didn't worry that I'd get kidnapped. They figured they already had three kids, so losing one wasn't much of a problem. It's a wonder I managed to live so long. :rolleyes:

02-11-2006, 05:07 PM
What if they accidentally held the "o" key too long? There's nothing wrong with that. I do it alll the time.

02-11-2006, 05:08 PM
& I care ?
We know you do.

02-11-2006, 05:09 PM

(count to ten)

02-11-2006, 05:10 PM
You appear to care, since you brought it up in the first place.

02-11-2006, 05:12 PM
You appear to care, since you brought it up in the first place.
Plumey knows her(it is a her, right?) shit.

02-11-2006, 05:14 PM
I don't care about your gender & the way you masturbate.
You sure? Because I am privy to dish out advice.

02-11-2006, 05:14 PM
Good. I don't want you to care how I masturbate. That's the way things should be between us.
And yeah, I'm female.

02-11-2006, 05:16 PM
the point I left to the point where I seemingly returned.
I wish I knew what that meant. And I should take this opportunity to say that you always sided against me, so why shouldn't I return the favour?

02-11-2006, 05:19 PM
Do I? Awesome. I never thought I was capable of scorn. :cool:

02-11-2006, 05:24 PM
Yes, you are touchy. And that's why we love you.

That and your tits.

02-11-2006, 05:31 PM
I love it when people don't understand me. It makes for a much more exciting life. Maria, I'm not attacking you, I'm just arsing about. I am not capable of hate; least of all on an internet bbs!

02-11-2006, 05:41 PM
Bat. Shit. In. Sane.

02-11-2006, 07:15 PM
Your leaving might not be in the best interests of the board, but perhaps it would be in your best interests.

02-11-2006, 07:22 PM
I don't mean to kiss ass with this post however, Per speaks true words.
