Back in the 90's we hunted for fish with shotguns. We threw cats at the homeless. We also loved watermelon it was almost extinct so obviously we ate it with a side of panda bear. The environment was something we pissed on and divorce was a main course.
So screw you next generation what ever you do we did better...Also our music made people orgasm.
Yeah... When I was your age, we had to wait hours for AOL to connect us to the interwebs, if you wanted to send a txt message, you better have your ass in front of an expensive desk top computer, our idea of a smart phone was caller ID, AND, we had to drive all the way across town to get music we actually had to PAY for, which by the way was actually good compared to this mindless drivel you little bastards listen too now... Just what the hell is a Nicki Manaj anyway? And why don't they just kill it with fire?
When I was your age, cartoons were violent without a parental warning. We watched movies on VHS tapes and they came out SIX MONTHS after the theater film. If we wanted to see a movie, we went to BLOCKBUSTER. We ordered things from magazines. If we had a party, we had to WRITE OUT invitations and either mail them or hand them out at school. Playgrounds weren't "child safe."
And god damn, Pluto was a mother fucking planet.
We survived the recession, reached mars with an unmanned space craft, had the first private company to fully fund a shuttle that docked the International space station, were the last people who had a chance to see a giant Galapagos island turtle species before going extinct(lonesome George). Got to see a man jump out of a plane without using a parachute from a couple of thousand feet and glide safely back down to earth using nothing but a wing suite. Got to see Venus cross the sun, got to see Aung San Suu Kyi finally released after 20+years of house arrest for fighting for freedom and her people(Never give up - I think is the message in this case), got to see America crumble financially and all those rich fat cats exposed(not they ever really got convicted), got to see America's first black president do an amazing job and keep the U.S afloat during really hard times, were the first to see the fasted man alive do the 100m sprint in under 10 seconds(Usain Bolt), were the last to experience some of Steve jobs final and technologically revolutionizing creations and inventions(Ipod, Ipad, Iphone) - and finally... we were able to speak to people without having to text, email, whatsapp, facebook, twitter, google chat, yahoo chat or msn - them.... Yes that is right people in our day were still social human beings in reality and not just in World of warcraft or some other online gaming world. They ACTUALLY use to walked up to other human beings and say...... "Hi, I'm.... Pleased to meet you."... hard to believe... but true. and THOSE were the good old days!
We had a peanut butter shortage and dear god the carnage that was reigned. Children went hungry due to the lack of the nut that has a pea. There were mass riots at all the grocery stores for the last few jars. Some stores never even got their shipment, as small as it was, because the trucks were raided by gangs.It was not long that a black market started up. People selling Peanut butter marked up 600% and had Nutella mixed in to up the inventory. People died kids. My best friend, Charley, died in a knife fight for some Chunky peanutbutter..... It was the hardest think I have ever had to do... and yet.... So worth it.
