    I’m a youngin compared to most of you guys but I know exactly what both of those smell like

    I’m glad I was born before technology destroyed generational gaps

    For example I have similar experiences to someone born in the 70’s -80’s
    And now stuff moves along so fast that every couple years everything becomes drastically different

    It's hilarious because right as I read your post, this is what I was suddenly smelling outside my window.

    I remember when Bazooka was a penny apiece. Right around the same time I had a cap gun. You could by extra gunpowder rolls for them just about anywhere.

    Ha ha ha! Yeah, I did that too... Not even the ringing in your ears would stop you from doing it again, and again... :)

    LOL. One of our local skunks blasted me awake the night before last...something must have disturbed it. We've had substantially less visits (and gas attacks) since I removed the bird feeders. Yuck!

    We used to set fire to the cap rolls and be disappointed by the "Pfff" when we were hoping for a "Boom".

    We couldn’t get firecrackers so we made them from cap gun rolls. Take a straight pin and zig zag the roll, threading the pin through the dots of powder. Compress it into a cube and wrap it with scotch tape. The tricky part was slowly pulling the pin out. Sometimes the friction was enough to set it off in your hand...

    I remember a pal and I being walloped by his Da for stealing his bullets and hitting them with a hammer. We must have been about 5 or 6 years old! :lol:
