    I kind of miss when people would just say "I don't know." Before the world of internet experts Googling the answer to everything. (I am just as guilty of this as anyone else.)

    I don't miss looking up things in a printed encyclopedia though, and I still go to the local library, which is thriving.

    Aerobicise during the 80's on Showtime. I was in Jr. HS at the time. It was life changing.

    I remember when we only had two genders and people weren’t fragile.
    I remember when spanking a child made for respectful children.
    I remember when people came to this country and loved it instead of trying to make it into the dump they ran away from.
    I could go on and on, but I’ll stop there !
    You asked, so there’s my opinion !

    I know, right. Those English colonials ruined a beautiful continent.

    Please remember, just because some answers are controversial, that doesn’t make them political. Changing the narrative of life, doesn’t change facts.

    I'm happy of having seen cities and small villages with small shops one different from the other before the big mall infested every town and created legions of people that spend entire weekend walking inside like zombies, before that the people and the family use to do more intersting things, at least here, not that every family do spend the weekends in there but they are a lot.

    Not that i don't go when i need to but i'll never go to just kill the time like many do.

    I'm also happy for many other things but they are too many to write.

    I'm a boomer & all I'm gonna say is most of the time I'm ashamed of my generation.

    FIVE BUCKS AN HOUR!? Jeez, I guess not! When I was 18 I worked summers and weekends towing gliders for $3.00 an hour, a little more than twice the minimum wage IIRC.

    Tolerance and forgiveness. Sorely missing today. As teenagers in the 70's, we all made mistakes and as long as we didn't harm ourselves, we were forgiven. And most of it was forgotten, unless you are still friends with your old high school chums or your sisters like to remind you of it.

    ”What are you grateful for seeing in your generation”

    Taking bout my generation...The Who, with Keith Moon, were my 1st ever music concert. I’m also grateful about seeing Jerry & The Dead, twice, before he left us. There are many musical shows I’m so thankful for seeing & then there’s all those other things in life

    Oh and being able to buy a pre-CBS Tele or Strat for next to nothing. Had one of each, but sadly sold my Tele. But still have my Strat.

    I never mentioned queers, or Mexicans,and I don’t condone child abuse, a spanking doesn’t have to be abuse. People used to come to America,and be one citizens and assimilate not demand us to change to suit them. I don’t care about how someone uses their sexuality, it still doesn’t change the FACT there are still only two genders.
