Re: Born in the 1970's
how bout the old remotes that made a huge click and only changed the channel up?

I remember when my G-parents got a TV with mute and they were muting commercials......that was like magic!

hours upon hours coding some silly scroll based graphic game into my ZX-81, 1kb factory but I had the 16Kb memory module, you saved to tape three times cause ya never knew if the save was good..took five minutes to load a 16k game

Big Wheel tires would split. However, they made great ice cream trucks when you turned them upside down and cranked on the pedals.

Yes! But the ice cream game got boring fast when your friends were out on their big wheels! Mine would go flat from slamming on the brakes too often.

Re: Born in the 1970's
I was also born in the 70s and remember 8 tracts and singers like kenny rodgers, alabama, lorry morgan, barbara mandrel and that famouse song of hers i was country when country wasnt cool, i remember those rc colas and putting my peanuts in them cokes. i remember having to take a coke or rc bottle and put it on that bottle opener that was made onto most drink machines.

i remember getting spanked one time in class with a very long wooden board, man that thing hurt my booty lol.. i remember walking to school, playing games like sorry and monopoly at the kitchen table. i remember when it rained too much the bridge flooded out and all we had or could do was stay home and spend family time together.

i remember going to the big old steel bridge and taking a dip into the water on a very sunny hot day, i remember at night catching those lighten bugs and putting them in a jar, i remeber great shows like million dollar man, i love lucy, andy griffent, bj and the bear, simon and simon, hogan heros, threes company, the little rascals, sheriff lobo, the greatest american hero,

i remember all fun and i really miss them 70s and 80s.. too bad we cant get it back

Oh man! That is one of my favorite childhood memories ... we had swings set up over every creek and lakeside we could find ... the risks we took climbing up there to tie that crap off.

Oh how I miss the 70s and early 80s.

I was BORN in the 70's. We are the last generation who learned to play in the street, we are the 1st who played video games and the last to record songs off the radio on a cassette tape. We Learned how to program the VCR before anyone else, play from the Atari, to super Nintendo- We are the generation of Tom and Jerry,Captain Kangaroo. We traveled in cars without seat belts or air-bags and lived without cell phones. We did not have flat screens, surround sound, iPods, Facebook, Twitter, computers & the Internet... but nevertheless we had a GREAT time... stoner

68' I was into the world, born
And the seventies were a breath after the war
Life was confusing because of my age
Should my eyes open for tomorrows gains?
I can't help the way I am
There's no trust and there's no end
What is my name?

It's time for a change
It can't stay the same
Forever is my name
You can find all you need

Had to admit, those cassettes were sturdy, Played them hundreds of times no problem, when the CDs came, still use them in my car. they still get scratched up and messed up no matter how well you take care of them. CDS are a crappy invention really. They still should have made something with a protective casing.

Computer program CDs too, get scratched and crapped out.
