Memory Lane

I was talking to some of the older people at work the other day about childhood, then & now. It was scary the amount of stuff we all remembered that no longer exists & then one of those joke emails arrived in my inbox on the very same topic, see how you get on.

If you grew up in a generation before there was fast food, you may remember some of these:

How many do you remember?

Headlight dip-switches on the floor of the car.
Ignition switches on the dashboard.
There were two postal deliveries per day.
Trouser leg clips for bicycles without chain guards.
The street lights were turned off at about 11pm each day.

Older Than Dirt Quiz:
Count all the ones that you remember, not the ones you were told about.
Ratings at the bottom.

1. Sweet cigarettes
2. Coffee shops with juke boxes
3. Home milk delivery in glass bottles
4. Party lines on the telephone
5. Newsreels before the movie
6. TV test patterns that came on at night after the last show and were there until TV shows started again in the morning. (There were only 2 channels.)
7. Peashooters
8. 33 rpm records
9. 45 RPM records
10. Hi-fi's
11. Metal ice trays with levers
12. Blue flashbulb
13. Cork popguns
14. Wash tub wringers

If you remembered 0-3 = You’re still young
If you remembered 3-6 = You are getting older
If you remembered 7-10 = Don't tell your age
If you remembered 11-14 = You're positively ancient!

I remember 7 very clearly, I don't remember or never even heard of; 2, 4, 5, 11 or 12.

JOKE FOR TODAY - Donald & Daisy


Donald Duck and Daisy Duck were spending the night together in a hotel room and Donald wanted to have sex with Daisy.
The first thing Daisy asked was, "Do you have a condom?"
Donald frowned and said, "No."
Daisy told Donald that if he didn't get a condom, they could not have sex.
"Maybe they sell them at the front desk," she suggested.
So Donald went down to the lobby and asked the hotel clerk if they had condoms.
"Yes, we do," the clerk said and pulled a box out from under the counter and gave it to Donald.
The clerk asked, "Would you like me to put them on your bill?"
"Thit No!" Donald quacked, "I'd thuffocate!"

Beware of Greeks - Refusing to pay

The Birthplace of Civilisation & Democracy is not looking very civilised any more, the people are on the streets and they aint gonna take it lying down, http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011/apr/17/greece-debt-default-bailout

The problem for Greece is that these pictures are being streamed across the world & for a country that depends so heavily on tourism this type of publicity can be devastating, so what do they do, allow these protests continue & get out of hand or crackdown on them and risk the publicity of protesters being badly injured or even killed.

On the plus side though, old Choppers and the unelected EU Fuckocrats must be shitting themselves re the possibility of default & the contagion spreading to Ireland & Portugal, leading to the end of the Euro project & possibly with any luck the end of the EU.
