    What happened to those then vs now memes? Couldn’t find one.

    What am i saying? Things that were no big deal in the 80's not can get you hung? When did this happen to us? If you were to time travel back to the 1800's and tell people about how society would be in the future in America they would run you out of town as a laughing stock. And its only getting worse.

    What are your thoughts on this subject?

    When I was a kid, it was perfectly acceptable for us kids to ride in the bed of a pickup truck.

    But we had to sit with our backs up against the cab. You know, for safety reasons.

    @Daveindiego do you prefer the simplicity of the 1800's or the advancements of today?

    I am embarrassed for us in today’s society. We look like a bunch of fools.

    Today anyone can post anything and it can get credibility if enough people jump on board.

    That scares the living shit out of me.

    Back in Dave's day they couldn't bust heads like they used to, but they had their ways. One trick Dave used was to tell em stories that didn't go anywhere. Like the time Dave caught the ferry over to Shelbyville. He needed a new heel for his shoe, so he decided to go to Morganville, which is what they called Shelbyville in those days. So Dave tied an onion to his belt, which was the style at the time. Now, to take the ferry cost a nickel, and in those days, nickels had pictures of bumblebees on em. Give me five bees for a quarter, you'd say.

    Now where were we? Oh yeah the important thing was Dave had an onion on his belt, which was the style at the time. They didn't have white onions because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones. :grad:

    Bro, we laugh at the town of Salem and it's people for burning witches at the stake. Yet, in 2015 we are the new Salem, nothing but witch hunts. and we take delight at burning people at the stake in the town square. They would laugh back at us.

    Look no further than the politics forum to see misinformation being spread and people believing it.

    Then "here's what I'm going to do, and if you don't like it, you can fuck off...Merry Christmas"

    Now "I see what you're doing, I don't like it, you have to stop.....Happy Holiday"

    I don't laugh at it. They would be scared shitless if they saw the information overload we have today. What to believe? Who can you trust?

    When people believe bloggers and money influenced misinformation over scientists or experts, that scares me.
