Ermine saidI feel blessed to be born when I was.I would jsut like to point out the caution warning were added ebcause of an american woman in the 90's who was well past 30 burning herself. That is not my generation, that was her stupidity, and the laws that allowed for a company to be sued for that lol.
I'm young enough to adapt to the changes to technology.
I'm old enough to have been a kid before everyone became evil and stupid.
One of my favorite movies in the 80s was Heathers. It was the Mean Girls of its time, but much more so. What did Lindsay Lohan's character do to get even? She tried to make her rival fat. Big deal. Winona Rider and Christian Slater spent the movie killing the popular kids and almost blowing up the school. Heathers would not be made today because there would be a fear that kids would try to copy it. People are more evil today.
If you bought a coffee when I was a kid (pre-Starbucks), you would not find a warning on the cup saying "Caution: Contents Hot." People would know that a coffee was supposed to be hot and act accordingly. Now you see caution warnings on everything because people are stupid enough to not use them properly or take the appropriate care when handling.

11) There was no Cartoon Network either! You could only get cartoons on
Saturday Morning. Do you hear what I'm saying? We had to wait ALL WEEK
for cartoons, you spoiled little rat-bastards!
12) And we didn't have microwaves. If we wanted to heat something up,
we had to use the stove! Imagine that!
13) And our parents told us to stay outside and play... all day long.
Oh, no, no electronics to soothe and comfort. And if you came back
inside... you were doing chores!
And car seats - oh, please! Mom threw you in the back seat and
you hung on. If you were lucky, you got the "safety arm" across the
chest at the last moment if she had to stop suddenly, and if your head
hit the dashboard, well that was your fault for calling "shot gun" in
the first place!

Not at all????? It says you "might find it hilarious," and that was the point, for a laugh...and as you can see most older folks are getting a kick out of it, because it brings us back to how things used to be since we might have forgotten over time.
If you found it bitter, then...what can I say?
