Drunks are rarely funny. They just think they are. TV and movies are pure fantasy the way they glorify booze and drugs.
The first major movie to stress the downside of booze addiction was 1945's "The Lost Weekend" which won 4 Oscars. The only thing remotely funny about the movie was how drunk the lead actor could get on $10
I'm so old that I remember when bars were smoky.
And, in Canada at least, there were two entrances to most taverns: Men's as well as Ladies and Escorts... LOL
lol I'm not that old.
Neither am I but my great grand pappy told me that...
Me too. Well my favourite restaurant/bar I went to with parents growing up was smoky.
Yes, and there was a cigarette vending machine at the entrance to every bar and every restaurant (except fast food restaurants).
I'm so old that I know what LSMFT means.
I thought you looks familiar! Ha!
I'm so old, I forgot what this post was about.
My wife tells me I'm showing my age, but I don't know why.
I'm so old I learned how to code using punched cards.
I remember the tape with holes in it for running programs. 😉
Maybe I should've patented fire, right after I invented it... Now it's open source and the history has forgotten about poor old me.
Don't be modest .... I bet the wheel was one of yours as well!
That was Bub. He is such an all-rounder.
I'm so old my clothes say "Made in the USA."
I'm so old I remember when Walgreens had pay toilets.
I remember when most houses did not have color TVs.
The first microwave ovens were sold after I was a teenager.
We made home movie with real film and had to take them to the photomat to be developed.
Music was recorded on reel-2-reel (before cassettes).
Cars did not have seat belts.
Roller skates needs a key to tighten them to your shoes.
Telephones had dials - and 'party lines'.
I'm so old I remember everything you listed, and also besides recording music on a big clumsy tape recorder, the pre=recorded music was on 78 RPM discs which required a 78 RPM turntable to play them. And not only did cars not have seat belts, most cars did not have automatic transmissions or air conditioning (and you even had to order a heater if you wanted heat--those heaters were only offered in cars sold in the northern states).
Yes I remember.
I'm so old, I remember a time when the U.S. didn't drop a bomb / launch cruise missiles at another country every other week.
I'm so old I remember when republicans loathed the Russkies
Remember the don't put it in your mouth commercial for kids?
Here is a list of a few things that I am old enough to remember seeing in my lifetime:
Newspaper deliveries were made to homes by young boys on bicycles
There were movie theaters where you watched the movie (if you were so inclined) from the front seat of your car being shown on a giant screen at the front of a huge parking lot
Gasoline for your car was 25 cents per gallon
There were only three TV channels to choose between, the ABC, NBC, or CBS channel. But I lived in Detroit, so we got a fourth channel broadcast from Canada that you could watch if you had a good TV antenna
There were only 6 National Hockey League teams, 16 Major League Baseball teams (and no playoffs, just the World Series), and there was no Super Bowl in football because the American Football League hadn't been invented yet.
I still use words like bejeepers,son of a gun, man alive, and oh shoot which might get me killed nowadays!
