Friday nights at BlockBuster
@tha5th, renting game consoles at said Blockbuster
@El Batman, sitting in my room alone playing the sh¡t out of Donkey Kong on my N64, collecting as many bananas as I can
@tha5th, be kind, please rewind
@tha5th, Blockbuster was too expensive for us. We would go to Hollywood Video
Killing wooly mammoths for their meats and skin to survive an icey hell.
Having to wait by the radio with my finger on the record button to make a mixed song tape to run to.
@groundpounder04, damn that’s old school
@megamanx181x, lol, yeah. I can’t imagine doing that now, but Napster hadn’t even started yet. Lol
@groundpounder04, just trying to hit the record button just right so you didn’t get the radio DJ voice
@megamanx181x, and hell, half the time they talked through the intro of the dang song.
@groundpounder04, and they come in and start talking again within the last ten seconds of the song!
Waiting for the vhs tape to rewind

An economy that worked for the middle class, an environment that wasn't trying to kill us, and affordable education... I'm very old.
@YoYoMango, sorry, man, that was centuries ago.
@Doctor Krieger, decades* ago
@YoYoMango, keep telling yourself that...
@Doctor Krieger, facts and history are telling me that
@YoYoMango, history seems to dispute that. Methinks you're looking at it through rose-colored lenses.
@Doctor Krieger, just 60 years ago America had its most robust middle class in history, a summer job could pay off a year of college, and the atmosphere wasn't at a critical level of greenhouse gases. What in that do you dispute?
@YoYoMango, oppression of minorities
@YoYoMango, I interned at a large aerospace and defense contractor for two summers, and made about $10k each summer. Tuition was $5k a semester. So in this day and age, I was able to make enough in a summer to cover a year of college. Now, living expenses were another thing, but I could have lived cheaper, and I didn't work at all during the school year. Not bad.
@Tsaltydog, what college did you go to
@YoYoMango, UT Austin
@YoYoMango, aka THE University of Texas
Hollywood video...... and getting my first Super Nintendo !!
DZ discovery zone
@megamanx181x, bruh discovery zone was the SHJT!
@Not him again, RIGHT?!?!?!? I had my bday there once! It was way more fun than Chuck E. Cheese!
@megamanx181x, yeah after the first time I went to discovery zone I was like fvck chuck e cheese. When they closed down my dad would go up and try and get pieces of the tunnels/etc. that were being sold/thrown away, and almost got arrested once. He was going to rebuild what he could in our backyard, but only got away with like 3 pieces
@Not him again, wow man, that would have been awesome to have a smalls section like that. I went the first on a summer day care field trip and after that I had to have my bday there. I didn’t even care about playing the ticket machines, that was the mother of all obstacle courses.
