    I have witnessed so many changes in the world. The Berlin Wall no longer exists, the Red Sox won the World Series, Cuba is back in good graces, the downfall of Communism, a horse won the triple crown and on and on.

    But what hasn't changed in the last 50 years? I can think of a few - The Queen, The Cubs, North Korea

    Is there anything else?

    Things I remember as a kid in the '60s that no longer exist today (yeah, I know, the total opposite of this thread topic):

    I remember our family doctor making house calls when I was sick.

    ... a diaper service truck coming to pick up a bag of dirty diapers when my brother was a baby. Talk about shitty jobs. This was right before disposable diapers hit the market.

    ... we had a Milk Man who delivered to our doorstep. We had a little silver box that they put the bottles in.

    ... our town tested it's air raid siren weekly in case of nuclear attack. That used to send chills up my spine and I didn't really know what nuclear war was.

    ... teachers (mostly nuns) beating the shit out of us on a regular basis.

    ... reaching out trying to grab the Brass Ring when on the Merry-Go-Round.

    ... our playground, swings and monkey bars being on cement. When you fell off "SPLAT!".

    ... that horrible, cardboard tasting gum that came in ever pack of baseball cards.

    ... how great a mimeograph sheet of paper smelled in school.

    ... when movie theaters catered to kids on Saturday afternoons. Moms would just drop us off unchaperoned with no worries about us getting kidnapped.

    ... the Good Humor Man had prizes for us when we bought ice cream.

    ... Cracker Jack having really cool prizes in the box. Not the stupid paper shit they have now.

    ... being able to actually buy something for 5 or 10 cents at the 5 & Dime Store.

    ... every kid had a baseball card clipped to the spokes of their bicycle to make a cool "rat-a-tat" sound.

    ... playing Lawn Darts (with metal tips). What idiot thought that was a good play toy for children?

    I remember them all...Did anyone else have the guy who'd walk the streets of your town with his knife sharpening cart? He had the little bell, and people would run onto the streets with their knives and scissors to be sharpened (try that in Baltimore today...)

    Chimney sweeps. Once a year a guy would knock at the door and ask if we needed a chimney sweep.

    Water trucks. During the summer months trucks filled with water would come down the street and just flood the street to clean it. We'd be out there playing in the water.

    Our milk guy also delivered juice and he'd sell juice and lemonade in those small cartons for 5-10 cents. (I suspect he did this on the sly...)

    Browns have never won or even been in a Super Bowl.

    No men on the moon since 72. (Which is a national disgrace)

    Jerry Brown is still the governor of California.

    General Francisco Franco is still dead...

    Lots of stuff stays the same. I mean, every day I turn on my TV to see what's happening in the world, and every day Gilligan and those other fucks are still stuck on that island.....
