    Of course there's going to be those who would decry that era as being irresponsible, dangerous, blah, blah, blah..I often wonder why it is, in this so-called "age of enlightenment" there's so many sociopaths and other assorted wack jobs on the loose, so much mental illness, mass shootings, rampant crime, ect. ect..:shrug:

    I feel so fortunate to have been lucky enough to have lived "back in the day".

    Haha. I’m caught in the upside down at the ripe old age of 41. The weird purgatory Between millennial and boomer. And by purgatory I mean I’ve got a greasy butthole. I do. Sorry, lotta chili cause it’s been so cold recently. 5 days of legumes and my hemhroids are inflamed, son. Does Australia still post here? All this talk of bowel inflammation reminds me of him.

    The video isn't working. Says it doesn't exist.

    Maybe it's extinct, like these...

    Damn, i remember the crap we got away with as kids. My Dad had a big ol Ford Country Squire station wagon with the rear facing back seat and we would be rolling down I-95 at 70-80+ MPH, fold the seat down and wrestle in the back. If he ever hit anything at the speed it would have been assholes and balls through the front windshield.

    I was just talking about that with someone recently, as we did the same thing when we were kids. Though, if I remember right, I'm pretty sure my Mom had a Buick station wagon (wood paneling and all ... totally 80's!). Loved those rear facing seats in the back. Funnier still, just last week I started wondering if I could hunt one down in good shape, as I'd love an old school station wagon to drive.

    "This is a man who smokes Marlboro cigarettes. What kind of man is he?"
    Prolly dead would be my guess.

    Back in the day when natural selection was a reality you learned about every day. I think it was called if you do something stupid you get hurt back then though.
