    Can easily beat that. I watched the panicky news reports about Yuri Gagarin's flight and sat with my family watching Alan Shepard's launch.

    When the "Now-In-The-Showroom!" dates for the new (American, of course) cars was a big and announced event.


    Studebakers.
    Tareyton. True. Lark.
    Kedso. (Clutch Cargo's post-prison uncle?)

    PF Flyer Adventures.


    Cigarette machines in many and random places.

    When nickels and quarters had beefy weight.

    Thanking the laws of physics for exempting Lynda Carter.

    Hated this thing. They just went in over-caffeinated jagged circles.

    Kept trying it, though.

    This was better:

    You could fire any number of things at your sister or unfavorite aunt and blame it on the game until the little wire catapult broke.

    Wondering if asking God to send you Gilligan's Mary Ann meant you were bound for Hell.

    Good things like manufacturing jobs that put you instantly into the middle class and made you feel valued by America and being able to roam around your town in relative safety, etc., and bad things like unthinking prejudices toward gays and any style pattern from the 1970s other than short skirts and copious eye make-up.

    Laughing at how aptly named Toyotas were.

    Hearing that olive oil was bad for you because it was a type of fat.

    Passing people's houses and seeing them standing at attention in their living or family or rumpus rooms while the National Anthem played at a televised ballgame's start.

    Wondering how much the world would have been better had Howard Cosell's mother slapped him many times.

    Losing the 45 rpm disk and being verrrry careful to center "It Don't Come Easy" on the turntable so it wouldn't spiral your needle into ruin because you really loved that intro and outro.

    When you shied from the news, trusting the grown-ups to have fixed the problems by the time it was your turn to worry.

    When this seemed more fad than future.

    The term "gay" has been around since at least the 60s and I'm pretty sure it predates the 60s by a long time

    How could I forget
    "Little girls have pretty curls
    But I like Oreos.
    Oreo's the best because
    It's the very best cookie ever was.
    Girls are nice but oh what ic-ing comes with Oreos"

    The gas isn't 30 cents, but there's a few Sinclair gas stations, complete with dinosaur, in my town. Closest one is about a half mile from my house. It's made both my and my wife's parents do a double take when they came out to visit.

    When I was a little fella, I had some of the trucks the Hess gas stations sold with all the lights on them.

    We had a Sinclair station down the street and one summer day my dad bought me a Sinclair Dino blow up beach toy. Probably lasted a day.
