7. The computer you're using right now
is already obsolete.

Clear a spot on the museum shelf for it.

8. I remember packets of coloring
that came with oleo-margarine.
I think it was some wartime FDA law the dairy farmers got passed so that margerine couldn't compete with butter.
The stuff came in a stick that looked like Crisco. You had to soften it and mix the orange dye gel in. It came out canary yellow.
Still tasted pretty much like Crisco.
yum

9. Don't count on it:

11. I remember them all plus...
The first computer I ever saw was in a Wang lab on campus. Only the science and math majors could use them. The math and science kids always had stacks of cards and lots of tiny chads in their hair.

Nobody had calculators.

You couldn't own your phone.

Gas was $.32 a gallon.

:hippie:

But some things haven't changed: Right wing assholes still run the country, pot is still illegal, we are fighting an unjust war, killing innocent people and our bravest and finest young people are coming home in body bags.
