Re: life was so much better in the 90s
Well when the 90's ended and it turned 2k i lost my mother to cancer, personal doom so how do you think i view it. Load of fucking shit, was only 16. Yes life is shit for some.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 30437522


I am truly sorry. Never knew my dad, lost my mom at 30, so I know the heartache. I don't associate with a time though. I just think how fortunate so many others are and they don't even know it.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 17431247


Another little story had a pet budgie at the time also and it got cancer a year before my mother did. Had an operation at the vets and survived, lived till 2006. Life sure is strange.

Is it just me, or did the post-Clinton years spawn the rise of the Gen X Yuppies? I miss the real people who used to live in my neighborhood, now it's all a bunch of Suburban-driving 40-45 yr olds with 2 kids and a 300k house looking down their noses at those of us who are trying to figure out how the fuck people dumber than us managed us to do so much better financially.

Re: life was so much better in the 90s
Remember when................


Close your eyes.....And go back in time....


Before the Internet or the MAC, Before semi-automatics.
Before SEGA or Super Nintendo...


Way back.....

Hide and seek at dusk. The Good Humor man,
Red light, green light. The corner store.
Hopscotch, butterscotch, double Dutch, jacks,
kickball, dodge ball. Mother May I?
Red Rover and Roly Poly.
Hula Hoops.
Running through the sprinkler.
The smell of the sun and licking salty lips.
Wax lips and mustaches.
An ice cream cone on a warm summer night,
Chocolate or vanilla or strawberry or maybe
butter pecan.
A cherry coke from the fountain at the corner
drug store.



Remember when...

Watching Saturday Morning cartoons... short commercials
Davy Crockett, Hopalong Cassidy, Junior Frolics,
The Three Stooges, and Bugs, or staying up for Gunsmoke



Or back further,

Listening to Superman or The Lone Ranger on the radio.
When around the corner seemed far away,
and going downtown seemed like going somewhere.
A million mosquito bites. Sticky fingers. Cops and Robbers,
Cowboys and Indians, Zorro. Climbing trees, Building
igloos out of snow banks.


Walking to school, no matter what the weather.

Running till you were out of breath .
Laughing so hard that your stomach hurt.
Jumping on the bed. Pillow fights.
Spinning around, getting dizzy and falling down
was cause for giggles.
Being tired from playing.... Remember that?

The worst embarrassment was being picked last
for a team.

War was a card game.

Water balloons were the ultimate weapon.

Baseball cards in the spokes transformed any
bike into a motorcycle.

Eating Kool-aid powder.



Remember when...

There were two types of sneakers for girls and
boys (Keds & PF Flyers)and the only time you
wore them at school, was for "gym."

It wasn't odd to have two or three "best"
friends.

When nobody owned a purebred dog.

When a quarter was a decent allowance, and
another quarter a miracle.
When milk went up one cent and everyone talked
about it for weeks? When you'd reach into a
muddy gutter for a penny.


When you got your windshield cleaned, oil
checked, and gas pumped, without asking, for
free, every time. And, you didn't pay for air.
And, you got trading stamps to boot!

Remember when..

When laundry detergent had free glasses, dishes
or towels hidden inside the box. When nearly
everyone's mom was at home when the kids got
there. When it took five minutes for the TV to
warm up, if you even had one. When your Mom wore
nylons that came in two pieces.

It was magic when dad would "remove" his thumb.

When it was considered a great privilege to be
taken out to dinner at a real restaurant with
your parents.
When girls neither dated nor kissed until late
high school, if then.
When all of your male teachers wore neckties and
female teachers had their hair done.
When they threatened to keep kids back a grade
if they failed ..and did! When being sent to the
principal's office was nothing compared to the
fate that awaited a misbehaving student at home.
Basically, we were in fear for our lives but it
wasn't because of drive-by shootings, drugs,
gangs, etc. Our parents and grandparents were a
much bigger threat! and some of us are still
afraid of them!!! Didn't that feel good.. just
to go back and say,

Yeah, I remember that!

Decisions were made by going
"eeny-meeny-miney-mo." Mistakes were corrected
by simply exclaiming, "do over!" "Race issue"
meant arguing about who ran the fastest.

Remember when...

Money issues were handled by whoever was the
banker in "Monopoly." The worst thing you could
catch from the opposite sex was cooties. It was
unbelievable that dodgeball wasn't an Olympic
event. Having a weapon in school, meant being
caught with a slingshot.


Nobody was prettier than Mom.

Scrapes and bruises were kissed and made better.
Taking drugs meant orange-flavored chewable
aspirin. Ice cream was considered a basic food
group. Getting a foot of snow was a dream come
true. Abilities were discovered because of a
"double-dare."


Older siblings were the worst tormentors, but
also the fiercest protectors.

If you can remember most or all of these, then
you have LIVED!!!!

Pass this on to anyone who may need to remember
when...

I DOUBLE DARE YA!!!

Re: life was so much better in the 90s
Agreed! Life was pretty sweet for me. It's almost as if the whole 'atmosphere' of life has changed into some dramatic shithole and media vacuum. Like we time-warped into the future of some sick dream. Just thinking about it makes me want to take a shower and scrub the film of evil I feel is on me. owhine

Re: life was so much better in the 90s
Since the turn of the millennium everything has gone to shit. Most of this shittiness can be blamed on the internet and technology in general, but a lot of it is also political and social. I would write a book about it but I'm too pissed off.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 29710001


I agree. it's all been down hill since the early 60s. Now that was a good time! If I could freeze time it would stop in 1962. We all rely on the tech to some degree but I would trade it in a second to get back to the simpler less stressful way we had it years ago.
