    Default Things kids will never believe

    1, Film had to be put in an envelope and posted. Then you sat back and waited for an eternity for the photos to come back followed by elation at the results or disappointment of wasted photos

    That's just not kids.

    A few computer ones...

    Having to fiddle with the volume control on your dad's tape player to get your games to load (which took forever).
    Games crashing if you moved the computer (ZX81) even a millimetre (ram pack wobble).

    Non computer...

    Only 3 channels on the telly.
    Being able to buy sweets for 1/2p.
    Getting really excited in buying the Christmas Radio Times to see which "big" films were going to be shown.

    I remember the excitement of getting together with all the lads after the yearly lads holiday and going to the indian guy down moulsham street with our disposable cameras (he would process all the pictures whereas boots chucked out the risqué ones). Getting a one hour service then going to the pub for an hour, picking up our photo's then back to the pub to look through them and relive the good times. Youngsters will never know that pleasure with their instant gratification.

    No internet or easily accessible porn, so you got your jollies watching eurotrash knowing you were guaranteed a few tits. With headphones on obviously you didn't want your mum hearing what you were watching.

    No need to lie about your age... you could buy your fags from a vending machine on the wall OUTSIDE the newsagents.

    One that has literally just happened.

    My son didn't believe me when I told him my first tennis racket was made of wood.

    Oh, another one. My brother in law was having an argument with his (then) 10 year old daughter about getting a mobile phone. She asked him how old he was when he first got one. She was gobsmacked to find out they didn't exist when he was a kid!

    When I was a lad, people didn't start sentences with "Well, basically,..."
