Our babysitter (18 y.o.) makes me feel old all the time. She was saying how her boyfriend liked "old" country music... like Tobey Keith. :x She had no idea who Alabama, Dolly Parton or Kenny Rogers were.

Maybe because they all suck? :smt102

Yep. We would wander the neighborhood on our bikes all day long. Get into all kinds of trouble. Now I know parents who are so afraid due to the news that they don't like letting their kids out of their sight.

Remember when getting on an airplane didn't involve getting forcibly felt up by a Neanderthal with a 5th grade education?

Yeah, I can totally remember getting out the old bike and riding around my neighborhood for hours, going nowhere but enjoying the hell out of getting there. Listening to the local AM Top 40 station play the latest Prince, Hall & Oates, and Def Leppard. Playing the horrible Smurfs game on my friend's Colecovision. Buying baseball and hockey stickers from the corner store. Watching Airwolf on the tiny B&W TV my parents gave me for my bedroom. Star Wars related coloring books. Watching All My Children with my grandma during summers off. Reading Hardy Boys books I checked out from my little local library that isn't even there anymore. Being able to buy the latest issues of Amazing Spider-Man and G.I. Joe from the same corner store I already mentioned. Amy Odell, my first sort-of girlfriend from when I was 9. The cop down the street who would shoot off confiscated fireworks on the 4th of July. Being grossed out by the "eye in the hand" effect on the Jacksons' "Torture" video.

Yeah, it wasn't a half-bad childhood after all...

I remember when picking someone up at the airport or dropping them off could include going to the gate with them.

LOL, you're wanting an e-battle, but... meh, tastes vary. I'm not a fan of hardcore heavy metal, but I know the names of key bands.

I remember no one ever using a seatbelt, times when I'd be crammed into the back bench seat of a car with 5 other kids, or all the way in back of the giant station wagon.

I remember when no one gave a shit what label you were wearing.

I remember when Captain Kangaroo and Mr. Dress Up were the shows you had to watch. Oh and Bozo the clown.

One time the lock on the Duster failed and the passenger door popped open while going pretty fast and I flew out of the car and rolled into a ditch. It was fun.

I saw Star Wars on opening day and the theater wasn't even crowded.
