Hi all you older folk. Do you have old obsolete things that a young person like Julia might find interesting? Well here is your thread you can enlighten them in.

Go for it.

Hugs,

Old like a VHS and floppy disk or old like a wind-up pocket watch?

Vacuum tube radios.  Cameras that take film in 4"x5" sheets.  Cameras that take film.  Ice cream scoops.  Potato peelers...

Yes.  And things like vinyl records and single sided records and Victrola wind up record players. 33 1/3, 45, and 78 rpm records.

Or taking an old pair of roller skates, hammering them down and attaching them to a board to make a skate board. Or Swanson tv dinners in metal trays.

When I was first a kid we didn't have all the space garbage that's up there now.  Heaven was up there and hell was below.

Politicians being considered trustworthy by default.  TV stations going "Off the air."  Cars with huge amounts of room inside that put absolutely no effort into niceties like fuel efficiency or crash safety.  Beer being uniformly devoid of flavor, irrespective of brand.  Cell phones with cords attached to huge battery packs.
