    And adults too. I constantly wonder if our food has changed so much that it makes people chemically gain weight, or if people are just that much more sedentary. I've looked at old black and white photos of people from my parents' generation and I don't see a single fat person.

    I'd say counting from maybe the early 1990's up through today most of the people I know are overweight. Maybe one out of ten is normally proportioned.

    They’re that much more sedentary. And still eating as if they weren’t.

    Purely in the spirit of the topic though, those big plastic caps that use to be on the bottom of plastic soda bottles. I remember laughing at the first bottle I saw without one and musing over what manner of off brand, peasant swill It must contain.

    Not that I miss them or anything, just an excess from the past that aint coming back.


    I also miss when words like "ain't" werent actually in the dictionary. Letting the animals run the farm is definitely the norm in america these days

    I’m going to puke if I keep seeing hippopotami in leggings/yoga pants acting like that shite is appropriate for a professional or academic environment. Or even public.

    Kids with a sense of independence who were given a lot of room to see and explore unsupervised and for the most part didn't do incredibly stupid shit.

    We did our best to emulate our parents childhood including going camping by ourselves for the weekend. Watch movies like "Stand by Me" and that is really what it was like for my fathers generation. It is officially gone forever.

    We camped a lot closer to home and stocked up at the corner market before "roughing it", but at least we slept outside under the stars and woke up on a chilly morning breathing the cleanest air you ever sucked into your lungs.
    It's hard to be a ACLU hating, philosophically Libertarian, socially liberal, fiscally conservative, scientifically grounded, agnostic, porn admiring gun owner who believes in self determination.

    Chuck, we miss ya man.

    Just to dial the serious level back:

    A&W Drive Inn. Hot dogs and that A&W root beer with the frozen frothy stuff on top.
