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

Yup :)
And, in Canada at least, there were two entrances to most taverns: Men's as well as Ladies and Escorts... LOL

Yes, and there was a cigarette vending machine at the entrance to every bar and every restaurant (except fast food restaurants).

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).

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.
