Born in the 80s (OT)

I got this sent to me on FB, and thought since a lot of you are in the mid-late 20s and 30 ish, you might get a kick out of this. Smile I liked it. Might bring a few smiles out this morning.

"I was BORN in the 80's. We are the last generation who learned to play in the street, we were the 1st to play video games, and the last to record songs off the radio onto cassettes. We are the pioneers of walk-mans and chat rooms... We learned how to program the VCR before anyone else, play with the Atari and Nintendo and believed that someday the Internet would be a free world. We are the generation of the Ninja Turtles, Transformers, My Little Pony, Ghostbusters, Saved by the Bell, and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. We traveled in cars without airbags and lived without cell phones. We did not have 99 television stations, flat screens, surround sound, mp3s, iPods, computers or even facebook, but somehow we still had a GREAT Time "

i've seen this too and it makes me miss my youth.

i used to tell my teens all the time that they dont know what they are missing out on by refusing to go outside and PLAY! i literally had to force them out and then 5 minutes later back in whining and saying that they are bored! Seriously?? i had a pine tree, pine leaves and rake and with that i had my own space station!! KIDS! :rolleyes:

to that list i would like to add GI Joe and Rainbow Bright Biggrin

So true!! I never got to really hone my skills at Nintendo since my cousins (boys) always did so much better. We always did the 'play till you don't have any men left' scenario and somehow they survived for WAAAAY longer than me. So I'd do a lot of watching Wink Plus, my mom didn't allow us to play for very long anyway - we had about an hour or so on the games and then we got kicked out for the rest of the day as long as it wasn't raining.

I was born in the 70's but this is very true. I remember when we got our first answering machine and microwave. Now...I cannot live without my laptop, iPhone, iPod, DVR...ect.

Thanks for sharing!

LOL! Oh I remember learning our first answering machine. And getting my first radio/Cd player. I don't even own a normal stereo now. LOL! And I remember using a computer with a DOS screen (black and white text screen) and no mouse and no windows... and I thought It was awesome! lol... ohhhh how far we've come.
