they dont make em like they used to

they dont make em like they used to. sometimes when im out i think about how much better things were made or done back in the day, than they are now.

they dont make music like they used to... i dont remember growing up to music videos with bare asses and tits flying all over, black guys running around saying how great it is to be a gangsta. i remember when madonna came out with the song 'like a virgin', how ULTIMATELY insanely out there and risky that was.. how it was almost unheard of.

big cars. i know, i know energy and environment and all that crap.. but when i see the cars that are coming out now they just look, i dont know.. GAY.
whatever happened to the 1982 cadillacs bombing around or the sweet bigass pickup trucks we used to pile into on the weekends to go to _____ when we were kids. Now it seems kids pile in to the back of mom's hyundai (praying not to get into an accident, because cars these days are basically made of plastic) I miss big ass cars.

mcdonalds.
I know its bad for you -but remember those massive sized fries you got when you superized it? Like you could fit your whole head into the empty container. Maybe it just seemed bigger because you're a kid, i dunno. But when i go to mcdonalds im not going to eat healthy, im going because im splurging on something i know i shouldnt have, but crave anyways.. so give me a big mac in one of those old fashioned non biodegratable styrophome containers and let me rinse it down with that orange drink... you know, orange drink... it aint orange juice and theres no fizz carbonation so you know it aint pop... its just syrup and water.

VHS
i LIKE vhs.. remember when you used to go rent movies, and like.. the cardboard box was in front of the movie itself, pausing, rewinding.. OH remember the fee you'd have to pay if you didnt rewind?
or the BE KIND REWIND stickers on all the tapes when you rented them?

popcicles... they used to be a quarter. Sometimes less. Last week i stopped at a 7-11 for a popsicle and it was 69cents, plus taxes almost came out to a dollar.. what the hell is that.

im going to add more as i think of them

Remember when you could show up at the airport 15 minutes before your flight and not be told that either you or someone with a simaler name is on the no-fly list, bend over and grab your ankles please?

stereo systems- Iíve gone to Wal*Mart a couple times to look at their stereos, and they are made completely out of plastic and particleboard, and the speakers donít even have RCA plugs- they just have those cheap-ass wire clamps, which I know are dodgy at best. And for $200? What a rip-off.

Back in the day, stereo systems used to at least have RCA plugs, and the radios seemed to work better.

remember when you could be outside in the sun all day and not get sun burned?

Now it is like you can be out for like 15 minutes....

Remember when nobody gave a rat's ass if Barbie had a career as long as she had sparkly silver hi-heels and a disco gown?

Our Lego was a big box of random multicoloured pieces, various-sized squares and rectangles with the fancier parts being wheels, little hinged doors, and windows, and none of it was designed to make anything in particular other than what was in your head. "Make the Space Shuttle Challenger" Lego with all its dedicated parts looks like it might be cool, but is very disappointing by comparison.

Most people I knew didn't have to study -- or hit the books other than to write the odd essay or book report on a weekend -- til they wrote their first diploma exam.

It wasn't so long ago you could buy a gallon of distilled water for 69 cents. Now, it's all six-packs for $3.69, and up. Scary!

um... I must be much older than you; I can remember when water came free from the tap.

It isn't really free - you still have to pay the city for the water.

When I was a kid I used to think macaroni and cheese with hot dogs cut up in it was the Best Food Ever.

I miss feeling that way.

Holidays..I miss holidays the way they were when I was little. The nearly unbearable anticipation of Christmas, the excitement of seeing the entire family at Thanksgiving, and knowing my Grandma got me exactly what I asked for on my birthday. I think it is the innocence that I miss.

I miss having 90 days of vacation instead of 14.

They start you young, and just when you start actual work that you NEED a break from, They yank it all away, setting you up for a whole lifetime of disappointment.
