They are still trying to figure out what an "internet poll" is. :lol:

1979. While I barely made the 70's decade, I still love Abba, Disco and even the hippies (some may find that odd for my chosen profession).

I wish I could be 2.5 years old, so I could relive my life and avoid the many mistakes I have made in my current life.

My first computer was an IBM PC XT. 128kb ram and if I remember right a robust 10 meg hard drive....big enough to hold tens...maybe even a hundred photos on that thing. Tricky part is no place to stick a Polaroid in there :D

1958 here. Spent the entire 70's as a teenager and in the words of the late great Jerry Garcia. "What a long strange trip it's been" but just for the record, I didn't do much trippin in my youth or as an adult. I did bump into a few walls along the way thanks to Valium and qualudes.

Had some confusion as to whether I was a "boomer" or a "Gen Xer" since there seems to be some disagreement. Finally decided "boomer" since my Dad fought in WWII. I remember him sitting in front of the TV, cutting Kleenexes in half to conserve them. Grandma saving 'good' aluminum foil in the drawer in the kitchen. I'm not going to take any cheap shots at the "Xers" since obviously there's a lot (more than I would have guessed) on here, and obviously they are stacking.
I like to go to garage sales on weekends. I've started bringing a special wallet and change purse so I can just pay for my stuff and go. None of this "Oh, Harvey! Can you find some change? And eventually bring it out, so we can futz around with who owes who what and some time, hours later, give this guy his $2 so he can go?" but forgot change purse today. First sale, yep, she no got change. Luckily, I had some quarters anyhow, and made my escape.
A later stop, and a different story. Bought cookies totaling $1.25 from some young ladies, about 8-10 years old. Gave them 2 one dollar bills. They had NO IDEA how much change I should get back. So they guessed. They called in the 'math wiz'. Still wrong. Finally they hit on "Seventy Five Cents?" and I said yes, that's right. Well, I know people have been ragging on the "kids today" since at least Roman times....maybe making change isn't that important in this world of credit cards, BitCoin, and computerized cash registers. I remember the controversy when the first hand held calculators came out...kids won't be able to add! I guess I'd feel better if they whipped out the iPhone and said, "I have an app for that....$.75 cents!" than just...not....knowing. What's the point of knowing the capital of Belgium when you can Google it? Right? It's OK with with me...just know how to Google.

Add another to the early 80's list. So much for Harry Dent's demographics speculation and the fact that this generation buys nothing and just sobs in debt......

I feel your pain, on my big 5-0 birthday I bought myself a shoulder and knee wrap (deluxe with the built in ice/heat :roll: )
Best gift I have received in a long time :lol:

Born in 52, rode a bicycle to school about 1/2 mi each way and NO helmet! First ride in a car was a Hudson Hornet that I remember. Dad had a 49 ford survived growing up without seat belts. Started riding motorcycles in 62 NO helmet. No free lunch at school, breakfast at school? Got whooped by the principal and then again at home when I did the wrong thing. Bought cigarettes for my mom when I was 11. Walked from one end of town to the other for a dance, short stop in china town to get a wino to buy some petri white port for us .35 cents a pint. Politically correct did not exist. Bullying was part of growing up. There were winners and losers and trophies were not given to everyone. Homeless was not the norm and begging on the streets was not seen, back then they were called beggars or bums. If you lived at home after the age of 18 there was something wrong with you. If a job paid minimum wage you still took it and worked your way up or moved on to another job. You did not run to a welfare agency to get food stamps or now I guess it is an ebt card. Red Skelton / Carol Burnnet was humor. Gas was .29 a gal when I started driving.
I am sure many will not understand but at least I was able to live those days!
