7/23-JD-Things Your Kids May Never Know About



No, I don't mean that they were all accidents and that you dropped them on their heads as babies.  What are some things that you grew up with that have gone the way of the dinosaurs (or will go extinct soon)?

 

For example these are some of mine:

VHS tapes

Floppy Disks

Film cameras

Answering machines

Payphones and phonebooks

Phones that are only used for talking to people

Blowing the dust out of nintendo cartridges

Manually unlocking car doors

Public libraries

Using a road atlas and not google maps (or another service)

 

Add your own and if you're really old (over 30) be sure to include things like:

Using a horse as your main form of transportation

Using Morse code

Living in a time when only white men could vote

Films without sound

Polio

Sitting for portraits

American flags with fewer than 45 stars
