I recall reading an article in Hebrew a few years ago that mentioned many differences between once and now. One that comes to mind:
"I remember when a rabbi was the one who gave a hesped and a badchan was one to make us laugh..."

Those are the phones that had a window on the flip part to allow display of the inner screen even when it's flipped shut?
That flip was from the fancier nextel phones and only came out a few years after the original bricks

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

When we used maps on road trips, and no that's not Google maps...

Something people born after 2000 have never and will never experience.

Oh, how I miss that. We used to go on long distance trips with my father, and he used to show me beforehand on the map the route we'll be traveling, and I had to be ready to guide him at a moments notice. Nostalgia.

When soda machines had a bottle opener next to the coin slot.
When cigarette vending machines existed. Pull the handle, get a pack, no questiins asked.
I'm an optimist; but only because life isn't going to give me any other good choices.
