Awkward conversations at the newsstand purchasing porno mags and buying cds

It was awful.

I used a 5.25" floppy boot Sim City 2000, and I made a city that would run for weeks without intervention.

I had no car, lived in a shithole apartment that was 2 miles from my three jobs at the mall.

I was a malnourished, pussy slaying, narcissist destined to be king of the mall rats 🐀 one day.

Thank Zeus for that $300 Dodge Dart, Pell grant, and junior college library.

i read a lot more books back in the 80s, i even used to watch tav occasionally. i got bootleg akira on vhs at a comic con in late 80s crystal city Va., filmed on a camcorder from the audience bootleg & no subs. and of course back them my computer didn't have an internet connection.
the weirdest thing of the whole 1980s happened pretty early on. the gunman in the failed reagan assassination attempt was a close personal friend of the bush family but the media was completely quiet about it. the only way i ever found out was that i had read charles lindhberg's diaries which traced out the bush-hinckely family connection going back to the 1930s.

I missed out on so much teen pussy. I could've licked so many girls if I just had the balls to offer them my service. They would've known me as The Tongue.

Also, it was a lot harder to find new music.

- Cheap cigs were less than a dollar a pack.
- Gas was as low as $.98 a gallon for regular.
- The ultimate level for stupidity in a president was Gerald Ford.
- "Kayfabe" still existed in it's original form
- Only CP I came across was photos my uncle took of me when I was 3.
- Cat pictures were few and far between.
- The "Meme" didn't exactly exist yet.
- "Oregon Trail" was the ultimate in violent shoot-em-up video games.
- Ric Flair was still Da' Man. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

I used to just show up at a friend's house without knowing if they were actually home or not. Then we'd go to another friend's house to watch stolen cable or VHS recordings of stolen cable. Getting on a computer at the library was a breeze because no one else knew how to use them. I have no pictures of myself at the age of thirteen because it was easy to avoid being photographed. Now? Now I have to make plans with friends months in advance just for them to be able to cancel ten minutes before meeting up thanks to texts. Can't steal cable anymore because the boxes are all digitally linked to the cable company. You can't even run a line from one room to the next, they want you to buy a box for every room. If I even wanted to bother using a computer at the library, I'd have to wait half an hour for one to be available and then end up with some grumpy old Airwolfer hovering around me waiting for me to be done so they can get back to playing Farmville on Facebook or whatever. And pictures? Shit, every time I go back to my hometown, every member of my family has their phone up my nose snapping pictures! I mean, some future stuff is great but sometimes I miss the spontaneity of life.

Damn, I never could put it into words but you hit the nail on the head.

I was hoping it'd get better after college/university/whatever education. That the time of due assignments and having 20 things to do at once would pass. That we'd all just get shitty 9 to 5 jobs and actually have time to do things during the off hours.

I was wrong, anon. So very wrong.

This post should be locked in a vault for posterity

Also I was young, used to ride my bike and talk to neighbor kids a lot. Played video games with my family. Not too much has changed really except I can't find anyone nice

Q: How do you kill a Von Erich?
A: You don't have to, they do it themselves.

I only talk to my neighbors' pets. I am on a first name basis with a dog (as in, I know his real name) in my neighborhood but I have never spoken a word to his family. Cool dog, though.

I'm probably about as bad as the newfags. I started my online journey as a kid on Windows 95. So my life prior was Preschool and Kindergarten.

So true and sad it's funny :( :| :) :D

I met Mike Von Erich on April's fools. A week or so later he went an became an hero. It was a surprise to me because he seemed really happy and was super nice.

I was 12 and there were half a dozen kids my age underfoot. The adults wanted us kids cleared out of the house but we moaned about the heat. Mike changed our attitudes asking if we wanted to see him do some wrestling practice on the trampoline.

It was pretty cool the shit he could do and in like 10 minutes he had us occupied with mimicking him and he went back in with the "grown-ups".

A few years later i learned the house belong to one of my mother's meth dealers.... Go figure

They go through the effort to get new IPs and write differently, and still manage to airwolf up.
