    It was REAL sugar back then. Now it's high fructose corn syrup...aka poison
    It was actually banned back then.Then somebody decided to help out the corn farmers(right after the Depression I "think") and took it off the banned,contaminated list. Eventually big business said Hey! it's cheaper than sugar let's use it

    "Nuke the rainbow"

    "Radioshack, the biggest name in little computers"...still a powerhouse of the industry!

    I think there was enough radiation coming out of those old CRT's to qualify as microwaves.......

    PS..Yup..Huge Flares ...an Afgan Coat...and My own Roger Daltry Perm....
    I think you should sport that in Moab next year!

    The sad part is, there is only a hand full of people that have a clue about anything in this tread!

    I remember $0.14 a gallon gas.
    I remember gas rationing in California! People waiting in line for hours (some running out of gas in the process) on their assigned day (license plates ending in a odd # gas on Tue. and Thur/ end in even # gas on Mon and Wen) during the "gas crisis" when gas jumped all the way up to $0.27 a gallon!

    Things you remember

    Since this is Ldubs afterhours thread, I just wanted to add a few things not relating to much. First, I recently obtained the recipe to make the famous chocolate "moonkee". The wifey got the ingredients so we could try them this last Sat. night. We made our first batch (full blender). I poured mine in a large iced tea type mug and went out to the garage to rub the VX with a little "Quick Detailer". It's been pretty hot here in Fl. so the first "moonkee" went down like a chocolate milkshake...got another one while the wife made dinner. I think she had started on her second one too. Mean while I'm back in the garage and the neighbor and his wife come over. Making a long story longer they liked the "moonkees" too. We finished off all the stuff to make them except maybe a little ice. I think the last batch was Ok except I had to substitute some brownies for the chocolate ice cream and added a little vodka to the rum. Anyway, I woke the neighbors to see if they wanted to stay for dinner. They did. My wife had fixed an old southern meal, a pot of pinto beans, cornbread, fresh onions, fresh tomato etc. Look for my next post to be in "Embarrasing Exhaust".
    So I said to myself, I said "Handee"
    and this voice came back and said..
    "He's not in, may we take a message?"

    The Vectrex really was awesome in it's day!
    Hahaha! I had one about 3 years ago, I sold it on eBay. I love vector graphics games.
    Cars designed by spreadsheets make sense. Cars designed by engineers make history.

    Yup, daughter still gradumacated (luckely we had the party 2 days after graduation).

    Bottom line: we had a BUNCH of flavors of jello in the pantry, BUNCH of 1/2 bottles of different flavors of rum & vodka left over ... we got creative.

    Our jello shots may not have been up to LBUD's chocolate monkee standard but they were strong & we had plenty of 'em.

    Back on track with this thread ...

    Zots.

    On a serious note, I do wonder what the kids of today will grow up like being completely exposed to HARD-CORE porn at such young ages. I mean, if I could have watched it when I was 12, I would have, but now it's a whole world of boys and girls exposed to some really good....I mean hardcore stuff these days...I don't believe in censorship or desensitization or any of that mumbo-jumbo, but I won't be surprised when there is a consequence to it all...

    Go talk to your local high school teachers about what kids have on their cell phones these days. Not just pics off of the internet, but of each other. I don't know about you, but if someone was passing a picture of me in my birthday suit around school I would have been so mortified I'd have moved out of state!


    I'll take my days of riding a BMX bike in traffic without a helmet over this stuff anyday!
