You get two invitations to go out on the same night and you pick the one that gets you home the earliest.

Multi Comment post... But this is the biggie.

Got you beat,, Was talking with our new park host (Who works for the ding-a-ling company) and he mentioned kids today can not even use one of those... I ask him about the old crank phones, you know, where the hearpiece hung on a hook on the side of the box and you spoke into the mounted mouthpiece,, The crank turned a magneto/generator inside that signaled the operator at Central.... Yup, had one of those when I was young.

The Shadow... Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men?

Black and White TV.. yup.

No internet, No cell phones,

And never forget the William Tell Overture,,, at the time the most recognized piece of classical music on the planet (though most knew it by a different name).

You are old if you remember that name,, From Radio.

By the way.. in some places I'm known as John from Detroit... Anyone know what that has to do with the William Tell Overture?

Yep, and I remember when Cokes went up to 6 cents! You would have thought the world was coming to an end!

You are old if you remember the speed limit signs that showed 65 mph in the daytime but showed 55 at night. (No power, just reflective numbers that changed with headlights shining on them)

You know your old if you remember carrying a church key to open cans and bottles.

Didn't have crank phone but do remember when you only had to dial the last four numbers for local calls. I also worked for the phone company on 8 party lines, then 4, then 2, finally there weren't many party lines left so only the antiques new how to work on them. Ended up working on company high speed data lines and computers. Talk about a long strange trip

Ride your bike (Schwinn) up to the gas station with your Buddys, all buy a Coke and bet a nickel apiece on the city stamped in the bottom of the bottle. Furthest away got the money.

You know you're old when you read these threads. When you helped your Dad build your first color TV from a Heathkit. You only had 1 channel that had color. NBC that's where the peacock with the color tail came from. You learned about a Simpson 260 at Treasure Island.
