Do you remember party lines for telephones, there was one land line that went to several houses one would get a call and the phones in all would ring and there was a different ring for each house
@peedy I remember them but never used one like that but was on a 3 way call but I think we needed the operator for that
Lol. Yeah, the days before DVR. (But a lot of people still don't have that. It's probably why many young folks prefer to watch stuff on streaming services nowadays instead of watching live TV.)
@Jamie05rhs Yeah, and if you were going out and wanted to tape something and the football was on before it, you had to pray it didn't go into extra time, otherwise you got the tail end of that and missed the end of your programme.
@CaptainSmartass You're absolutely right!And you also had to hope the clock on your VCR wasn't off by a few minutes (or more.)
Libraries were better for research than youtube & google bs tho.
@beebella But you haven't asked what we liked about those things, growing up?
Never had one that would rewind automatically.
@MysteriousDarkness Oh well it's a good job they are not used today
I think the library might have had those stickers, too!
I mean when we rented
I know. :)
At least you got to go to school at all. Some of us weren't afforded that privilege. You should think about that you lucky bastard. What I would've given just to be "bullied" at "school". See what you have done? Are you proud of yourself? Shame on you.
@OfDeath You're Australian, don't you have school there?
We do but only the top 1% are allowed to send their kids to school. The rest of us break rocks on a rock farm. Hard labour. This is a penal colony. Didn't you know?
@OfDeath Are you by any chance an immigrant? Immigrants are less likely to go to school in Australia.
I am from generations of immigrants or a better term would be convicts condemned to this hostile island/continent for the term of my natural life. Just to be allowed to drink water is a privilege here let alone be allowed to attend "school".
@OfDeath Usually, people who talk like that to me are Asian, Arab or African immigrants, and Australia has a lot of those.
You must be older than 20?
No remote for the TV to change channels you had to get up and walk to the TV and turn a knob
@peedy OMG. I remember that!!
@peedy even harder
LOL. SO hard.
That can't be.
I might cry
Shut up, you're bored after the millennium so what are you crying about
@BoxySama Don't be mean to my son.
