Back in my day we had rotary phones and no voice automated systems, yups, we had live living people on the other end of the line. Touch tone dialing changed all that and accelerated the use of "Press 1 for ..... ". 

 

Also, this belongs under "Off Topic", not General Discussions, I would think. :P

Back in my day:

  • No one cared about sexuality or race.  Black, white, gay, straight; nobody cared and we all partied together.
  • People moved out of their parent's houses at 18.  Got a job, joined the military, went to college if your parents could afford it, etc.  People who lived at home after age 20 were laughed at.
  • Guys wanted to be part of the man's world.  Work at a power or chemical plant, hot rods, tiddie bars and pool halls, go to Little Saigon and fuck Vietnamese whores, fist fights and black eyes.  The nimrod low-T male feminist running around today would get the living fuck beat out of them.
  • Women were feminine and took care of themselves.
  • Being obnoxious and confrontational like young people are today equaled a serious ass beating or a trip to the emergency room, depending on who you fucked with.
  • Strip clubs were classy, not the hog farms they are now.
  • There wasn't an internet or social media and the world was a better place because of that.
  • Most people had rotary phones and pay phones were a thing.  They cost a dime.
  • Being a socialist or communist would get your guts stomped out.  That went for skinheads too since back then we all understood that fascism is socialism-lite.  Today people don't understand that.

Hair...lots of hair. Ladies had huge bushes between legs and top of their head. Badass guys had a mullet or otherwise long hair.

I have to second everything KENDO 2 said. Those were some great times and that's not just my nostalgia goggles either.

Now to be honest there were prejudiced a***holes back then as well but they were so much fun to make fun of. For instance two of my co-workers at that time were R (a black dude I had partied with on numerous occasions), and K (a racist ass). R invited me to a BBQ at his place and I said I did not know for sure since my family was planning a BBQ of their own. K walked in at about this time so R said man you got to come to my place you know I will have plenty of white chicks there. K nearly lost his mind while R and I just laughed.

Damn those were the days, hop into your giant gas guzzling lead sled cruise for hours and hit a few tiddie bars and pool halls. Pool halls are damn near impossible to find around here anymore.

I don't know classy might be taking it a bit too far. Here the (cocktail servers doubled as the dancers) walk around half naked serving drinks for an hour then dance for 20 minutes. Good times.

Sorry I have to disagree with part of that statement, mullets were always a dumbass look. However waaayy back in 75 I had about (2'8") of hair, I am just a bit short of making the 6 foot mark (5'9") so that was alot of damn hair.

Back in my day we had jobs, real jobs, people hire people to make things, not hire people to purge an entire coloum of worker at mission critical positions so the top 0.

01% can earn their next 100% wage rise.

It is not about the company would had to lose money or what, if you can't pump out enough goods/services to sell, then how would you earn money? Sadly, todays millennial executives can't seems to figure out that.

Things were slower and simpler. You dated a girl for a long time before even thinking about getting into her pants. Hell, I remember just holding hands with my girl at the movies or whatever. Could spend hours just kissing. Now you're expected to jump into hot, sweaty sex on the first date- and if you don't, then they think there is something wrong with you.

 

Also, things were built to last back then. We had an old Plymouth that stayed in the family for something like 30 years. Lots of drunken adventures in that old tank and plenty of whisky dents, but it still kept going! The car eventually fell down around the engine.

 

People were generally nicer and more polite. Just watch a few episodes of shows from the 70's and you will get the idea. People looked out for each other more I think and if they weren't helping each other, then they weren't getting in their face with bullshit either. Now you gotta fight everyone about every fucking thing it seems and you get to hear their stupid opinions whether you want to or not- even if you are the customer in the store and their job is to help you.

 

Technology has gotten much better in the last several decades. People have gotten worse. Everyone is so afraid to get their little heart broke and they pretend to be such hard-asses.

back in my day:

 

there was no youtube and the internet was NOT for porn.

model trains were affordable and not filled with worthless "digital command" crap that bloated the price a extra $150.

the Super Nintendo was "next gen".

the only thing called "next gen" was Star Trek.

"Star Wars a new hope" was called "Star Wars"....and Han shot first....in fact he was the only one that shot.

SuperSoaker water guns were serious hardware, not overpriced dollar store crap.

Porn is the first thing the Internet was used for once the World Wide Web interface was created. :classic_tongue:

 

Spoiler

 

 

Back in my day, folks had to buy physical copies of a video game to play them.

We had dial-up Internet.

Cable was dominant on TV.

There were no MMOs; if you wanted to play online with friends, you did it via direct connections over the phone line.

People still used land lines and cell phones were big, clunky things that only made phone calls.

Caller ID was an option, not a standard feature.

People got triggered by Beavis and Butt-Head.

Yes 4 or 5 days was a long time. Yet back then you could speak to women without the fear of being accused of something.

Way back in my day I had a crappy low paying job so ended up buying (seriously abused) cars as that was what I could afford. There were no inspections back then so I would pay $50 or $60 for a piece of **it drive it for 3 or 4 months until it fell the rest of the way apart, then junk it for $40 and start all over again. However with just a little care I am currently the owner of a 36 year old Chevy wagon with over 300000 mile and it still chugs on along.

Yes generally speaking they were but like every time period there were plenty of a***holes as well. As a teenager the 3 families across the street from us were awesome my 2 immediate neighbors however were the worst.

Yeah, maybe like for... five minutes after it was invented.

Whenever something new is invented, first someone tries to break, and then someone finds out how to put porn on it.

 

Back in my day, we didn't get "triggered". We went "postal". Eventually, not at the drop of a hat ?

Back in my days kids played outside, had sleepovers to play Mario Party, and secretly stayed up late as possible to catch the newest episode of Inuyasha. ?

Kids these days just sit around crying on social media, drinking monster, eating avocados, and doing dances from this cancer called Fortnite. ?

 

Back in my day we had to read magazines for boobies, We had to stash them in secret places around our rooms, house, and property so mommy couldn't smack us and take them away. ☺️

These days kids can buy a VPN and look up a woman fucking a horse via saying 'hey google, alexa, cortana, etc.' into their cellphones, tablets, cars, TVs you name it. Then just delete their browser history. ?

 

Back in my day we didn't have lockdowns. We just went to school to learn, play, and run from the other gender because of cooties. There were no wackos on the streets back then compared to now. Instead they were all in congress.......wait that explains a lot. ?

Vets, people waiting for buses and an occasional hobo would bum cigs, and you didn't mind because cigs were 49-cents a pack.

Commercials came on talking about micronite filters and jingles like

"101....101! A silly millimeter longer(101)"

People had rage then too but they sublimated it using cigarettes.

Ex-smokers dying today of leukemia wish they hadn't lived so politically correctly and smoked up to the end,

because we all gotta go sometime.

Vaping sucks.

"Tonight is kinda special....

"The beer we'll pour...

"must be something more, somehow...

"so tonight, tonight

"Let it be Lowenbrau"

 

Lucky strike means FINE tobacco.

 

(rant)

"Can I suck your Vape" is probably something that'll never catch on, no matter what you smoke.


"those....were.....the....days, my friend"We thought they'd never end."We'd sing and dance,"Forever and a day"

Back in my day Wussies and Crybabies were laughed at and ridiculed. People were tough, could take a joke and generally had a the audacity to question media and governments. These days crybabies are carried by mobs with pitch forks and hailed as leaders of the community.

Yes since there was no internet you could not order (express overnight) you had to go to an actual "brick and mortar" store and they had set hours of operation. Usually between 8 or 9 am until 9 to 11 pm depending on the type of store. Department/clothing stores, grocers and several others were either closed altogether or had shorter hours on Sunday. Buying alcohol on Sunday was totally out of the question. In my area all but 3 restaurant chains closed at 9 or 10 pm through the week and only stayed open until midnight on the weekends. If you had plans for an overnight or a Sunday you had better plan ahead. Hell in my area all but one gas/petrol company closed overnight.

So true, back in the day if someone said something offensive you had 3 choices. Laugh it off, suck it up or tell the a***hole off; today we form an activist group and try to get them censored. Well I guess there was a 4th choice (fisticuffs).
