Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Wed Nov 21, 2012, 03:22 PM

Fun pub discussion last night - things your kids will never know or experience [View all]

I enjoy some random bar stool diplomacy. Last night we engaged in the "What will your kids never know or experience" discussion.

Some good ones include:

An alarm clock where the numbers flip versus digital
Smoking on an airline
Rest Areas with old outhouse holes in the ground
Records
Record players
8 Tracks
Party Line phone systems
Rotary dial phones


What are some fun things you grew up with that kids now will never experience?
