    Young Kids

    Im only 25, but some of this still applies!!!

    Read this on another i get older some of the things my parents used to whine about bbecome true but in a different way...

    A good rant:

    When I was a kid adults used to bore me to tears with their
    tedious diatribes about how hard things were when they were growing
    what with walking twenty-five miles to school every morning uphill
    through year ‘round blizzards carrying their younger siblings on
    backs to their one-room schoolhouse where they maintained a
    average despite their full-time after-school job at the local
    textile mill

    where they worked for 35 cents an hour just to help keep their
    from starving to death!

    And I remember promising myself that when I grew up there was no
    way in hell I was going to lay a bunch of crap like that on kids
    how hard I had it and how easy they’ve got it!


    Now that I’ve reached the ripe old age of twenty-nine, I can’t
    help but look around and notice the youth of today.

    You’ve got it so fuckin’ easy! I mean, compared to my childhood,
    you live in a goddamned Utopia!

    And I hate to say it but you kids today you don’t know how good
    you’ve got it!

    I mean, when I was a kid we didn’t have The Internet—we wanted to
    know something, we had to go to the goddamned library and look it

    And there was no email! We had to actually write somebody a
    letter—with a pen!--and then you had to walk all the way across
    street and
    put it in the fuckin’ mailbox and it would take like a week to get

    And there were no MP3s or Napsters! You wanted to steal music, you
    had to go to the goddamned record store and shoplift it yourself!
    Or we
    had to wait around all day to tape it off the radio and the DJ’d
    talk over the beginning and fuck it all up!

    You want to hear about hardship?

    You couldn’t just download porn! You had to bribe some homeless
    dude to buy you a copy of “Hustler” at the 7-11! It was either that
    to the lingerie section of the JC Penney catalog!

    Those were your options!

    We didn’t have fancy shit like Call Waiting! If you were on the
    phone and somebody else called they got a busy signal!

    And we didn’t have fancy Caller ID Boxes either! When the the
    phone rang, you had no idea who it was it could be your boss, your
    mom, a
    collections agent, your drug dealer, you didn’t know!!! You just
    had to
    it up and take your chances, mister!

    And we didn’t have any fancy Sony Play station videogames with
    high-resolution 3-D graphics! We had the Atari 2600!

    With games like “Space Invaders” and “Asteroids” and the graphics
    sucked ass! Your guy was a little square! You had to use your
    imagination! And there were no multiple levels or screens, it was
    just one
    forever! And you could never win, the game just kept getting harder
    faster until you died!

    Just like LIFE!

    When you went to the movie theater there no such thing as stadium
    seating! All the seats were the same height! A tall guy sat in
    front of
    you, you were screwed!

    And sure, we had cable television, but back then that was only
    like 20 channels and there was no onscreen menu! You had to use a
    book called a TV Guide to find out what was on!

    And there was no Cartoon Network! You could only get cartoons on
    Saturday morning... ...D’ya hear what the fuck I’m saying!?!

    We had to wait ALL WEEK, you spoiled little bastards!

    That’s exactly what I’m talking about! You kids today have got it
    too easy

    You’re spoiled, I swear to God! You guys wouldn’t last five
    minutes back in 1984!

    that's good. I'm suprised there's no rant about cell phones.

    We could say, back then they were called bricks! LOL

    OMG soo

    Others to add to the list:

    No cd's, you couldnt just hit a number and go to the song you wanted, you had to fast forward or rewind to the song you wanted to hear!

    No microwaves...all those little pizza pocket thingys and other snack foods that you just pop in the microwave for 30 secs would have to be heated in an oven for at least 15 minutes.

    Oh and no VCRS, if you missed a movie at the theater...SUCKED TO BE YOU! You had to beg your parents to pay the extra for the premium movie channel and HOPE it was one of the movies playing.

    none at the moment
    back in the day, my friends dad was saying how he had to walk to school 10 miles each day uphill both ways etc etc- I said, is that why you didn't graduate? Ok so my comment wasn't original, I stole the joke from a rap tune.

    Sparring speed is a matter of simple physics:
    The height of your flight is inversely proportionate to the mass of your ass.
