I thought you meant a slide rule...
Nah, I dont remember any of this stufff......you guys are old!!!
I was on the end of the slide rule ... uh ... rule. We switched over at some point but I remember still using a slide rule when others in the class had calculators (my parents were cheap). It was my John Henry vs. Steam Engine moment! I remember finishing a quiz first.
Using this toy was like having someone throw punches at you. I got nailed in the face quite a few times.

Gino's was a mid-Atlantic franchise, started by Gino Marchetti and Alan Ameche of the Baltimore Colts
Ameche also had his own small chain "Amechies" "Home of the Powerhouse" for a bit. They had a location not far from Televison Hill in Baltimore and the Powerhouse was the burger of choice for dancers on the "Buddy Dean Show" They later were merged into Gino's. I loved the cups with the cartoon of Gino when I was a kid. They also gave away pretty cool stuff. The have recently relaunched as a "fast casual" and have a few locations in MD but it's not the same..

I grew up in Pittsburgh and I remember Pirate Willie Stargell. From Wikipedia:
Bob Prince, the colorful longtime Pirate radio announcer would greet a Stargell home run with the phrase "Chicken on the Hill". This referred to Stargell's ownership of a chicken restaurant in Pittsburgh's Hill District. For a time, whenever he homered, Stargell's restaurant would give away free chicken to all patrons present in the restaurant at the time of the home run, in a promotion dubbed "Chicken on the Hill with Will". Prince himself once promised free chicken to listeners if Stargell hit a home run; Stargell did homer and Prince picked up a $400 bill at the restaurant.
I remember when ice cream was sold by the half gallon.
Gah!!! I thought I burried that dreaded Dr. Smith in the dark recesses of my mind once and for all - never to be remembered ever again. And you just had to dig him up from that hole, didn't you!
Oh, the pain of my damaged childhood from that character...
The stories your relatives told you about when the were in World War I.
In the late 60s, when California kids were skateboarding everywhere, on decent boards (not by today's standards, but hey)... we on the east coast were nailing these rollerskate trolleys to 2x4s and calling them skateboards.
A few years later, we moved to LA, and I got a real skateboard.
We lived in Baltimore suburbs, and then Phila suburbs. I remember being told that one of the Gino's locations we ate at was the first one. And yeah, I remember Ameche's, too. I just wasn't sure how far Gino's spread before folding. I know they got into PA, because we had them in the Philly burbs.
Clutch Cargo was a bit creepy!
