"Video games only worked on channel 3."

 

"When I was young, TV would ‘come off’ at 12am: you’d be notified that this programming is done for the day, there would be a recording of the National Anthem then you would get a B&W test screen until 5-6am the next day.

Also, my local 10pm news program would start every broadcast with this: “it’s now 10pm on the East Coast. Do you know where your children are?’"

 

"I’m 37 and I have this core memory. Just as soon as Twilight Zone or Tales From the Crypt ended depending on which of the 4 networks I was watching."

 

"VHS tape for “orange rugrats”"

 

"I’m old enough to have seen the rise and fall of several different social media platforms."

 

"I’m just as comfortable using a floppy disk as I am the newest Samsung Galaxy."

 

"I legally smoked on an airplane"

 

"Old enough to be alive for the fall of the Berlin Wall but not enough to remember it."

 

"Pogs, slap bracelets, inflatable see through chairs and clear phones. Hit me baby, just one more time please."

 

"34? Oh my gosh I forgot about the inflatable chairs"

 

"We lived on a farm that had an actual party line. Our ring was “RING RING”. Any other ring was for someone else, and sometimes you picked up the phone and heard another house using the phone, so you had to wait."

 

“By the power of Grayskull”

 

"I saw E.T. at the drive-in when it first came out."

 

"One year short of the ultimate answer to life, the universe, and everything."

 

"My high school had a smoking section. For students."

 

"I was born into the world of VHS and watched it replaced by DVD while I was still young"

#6 100% true. This came up in a conversation with my then 13 year old daughter.
Luckly YouTube had end of the day broadcasting clips. She was floored that the TV just "went off" at certain time.

Mark,

I remember this as well. Also when the evening news was over Mash was on. As soon as the opening theme with the helicopters came on we knew it was bed time.

Tave,

Yep! I remember sitting in the den waiting the video to premiere. I had the LP and the "The Making of Thriller" on VHS. Directed by John Landis!

I remember when TV was black and white.

I remember cars, before seat belts were required, when only luxury cars had shoulder belts, but they were optional.

Watched Apollo Moon landing and watched the Vietnam war on TV while eating dinner. Didn't have Paintball, but everyone had BB guns so you'd wear 3 or 4 pairs of jeans and a bunch of shirts and hands if you had em
