I'm 39. Not talking bout stuff that 10 year olds wouldn't remember.

For example, are there some of you on here that don't know bout ordering concert/sports tickets with a touch tone phone? Keep dialing and getting a busy signal. Once you got through it took for god damn ever to do it. Trying to spell shit out on phone, lol. Phone Post 3.0

Russfromlowell - turning on your car high beams with your foot

My first car was a 78 Camaro. The first time I ever drove it at night, I couldn't figure out how to turn on the high beams. I figured maybe they were something that came out on later models so I asked my dad. He laughed at me.

You realize the current college freshman were 5 when September 11 happened? They basically don't know a world where America was invincible. Muslims have always been the bad guys. Remember how in Die Hard the bad guys were still German? Phone Post 3.0
