You guys are all amatuers ...
I can remember when my Dad used to get his boat motor
out of the trunk of the car to hook up to the 8 footer to go fishing!
Oh yeah....one more thing....Chris 232, I know I am relatively young (25 tomorrow), but what is pong? Was it a game, or more of a game console like atari?
Ah pong, I remember it well, but for those even older there was a video game that you layed acetate sheets over the screen and they clung to it by static, and then you moved a cursor through the mazes .
As for computers, in school we thought we were king when we got to run the micro fiche machine or portable audio recorder (size of a shoe box) Or better yet the chaulk board eraser cleaning machine .
As for walking to school everyday, growing up in Aspen, I walked about 2 miles each way IN THE SNOW every day.
Hey IDRPSTF, I notice you still make it in to the coffee shop at the same time each morning
Now with McDonalds, like Wally said, it was a treat to go there once in a while, now it's punishment if I'm forced to eat there
This is too fun.
Does anyone remember:
2. Who Shot J.R.?
4. Americas Little Big Star (Mary Lou Retton)?
5. The words to Rappers Paridise? Lets hear it?
ya makin fun of me wally? Ya got that atari still?? lots better than Ps1.
Cable, Dvd, 27" tv. 5.1 surround sound, yeah we got it, up in my room (dont worry i had to get a job and buy it all myself)
Whenever I want something to eat or drink in the summer when mom and dad arent home, i have to walk 1/2 a mile to the marina (rough i know!!)
High school coffee (and whores) yeah, weve all been addicted to that stuff since 4 years old. me its just a soft drink, lots cheaper. and the whore part..... you just gotta be one of us to appreciate it.
why am i talking on amessage board in school you ask? we had a water main break and i am at home
Pong was the first video game to hit the market.
It had two players, each with a control knob. On each side of the TV screen there were flat paddles with a white dot bouncing from one side to the other. Object was to hit it back to your opponent and try to make him miss hitting it.
TV tennis of sorts or more accurately ping-pong.
BTW I have a working COLECO Vision system, still in the box, tucked away someplace. There's about a dozen cartridges with it too.
Hyperbaja, the nearest school bus stop was just about a mile away. Didn't matter if it was hot, cold, raining or snowing I walked with 20 other kids to meet the bus. In high school they moved it closer. Then it was just over half a mile away.

I agree, with everyone. I am the ripe age of 26, but man I wish I had this technology, 10-15 years ago.
I play atari games on my pc sometimes, there awesome, superbreak out and pong are the best.
now im gona look on ebay for an atari.
I used to ride my ten speed to school in the winter
I could make it to school before hte bus would show up
It was warmer then standing outside.
very true here these kids ask for handouts and GET it
Not one of them wants to WORK for a living
and if you find one that does want to work they think you should pay them 20 bucks n hour to just stand there.
But you know what is worse then the way the kids are
It is the parents, teachers, friends and family that ALLOW them to grow up this way!!!!!!!!
