Found on another site: When I was a kid, adults used to bore me to tears with their tedious diatribes about how hard things were when they were growing up and how they walked twenty-five miles to school every morning , uphill and barefoot no less. Both ways!! Yadda, yadda, yadda And I remember promising myself that when I grew up, there was no way in hell I was going to lay a bunch of crap like that on kids about how hard I had it and how easy they've got it! But now that I just can't help but look around and notice the youth of today. Youâ€™ve got it so easy! I mean, compared to even my childhood, you live in a damn Utopia! And I hate to say it but you kids today don't know how good you've got it! I mean, when I was a kid we didn't have The Internet. If we wanted to know something, we had to go to the damn library and look it up ourselves, in the card catalogue!! There was no email!! We had to actually write somebody a letter, with a pen! Then you had to walk all the way across the street and put it in the mailbox and it would take like a week to get there! Thatâ€™s if you got lucky and it arrived on time!! There were no MP3' s or Napsters! If you wanted to steal music, you had to hitchhike to the damn record store and shoplift it yourself! Or you had to wait around all day to tape your favorite music off the radio and the DJ would usually talk over the beginning and end and screw it all up! We didn't have fancy crap like Call Waiting! If you were on the phone and somebody else called they got a busy signal, that's it! We didn't have fancy Caller ID either! When the phone rang, you had no idea who it was! It could be your school, your mom, your boss, your Bookie, your drug dealer, a collections agent, you just didn't know!!! You had to pick it up and take your chances!!! We didn't have any fancy Sony Playstation video games with high-resolution 3-D graphics! We had Remco playstations made from plastic that only used your imagination that my dad left us and it did absolutely nothing! Later on we finally had the Atari 2600! With games like 'Space Invaders' and 'asteroids'. Your guy was a little square! Once again you actually had to use your imagination!! And there were no multiple levels or screens, it was just one screen forever! And you could never win,never! The game just kept getting harder and harder and faster and faster until you died! Just like LIFE! You had to use a little book called a TV Guide to find out what was on TV! You were screwed when it came to channel surfing! You had to get off your arse and walk over to the TV to change the channel because even if your family was rich enough to afford a remote TV who could ever find it. Besides it would break in a month!! And there was no Cartoon Network either! You could only get cartoons on Saturday Morning!! Do you hear what I'm saying?!! We had to wait all week for cartoons, you spoiled little rat-bast-rds! And we didn't have microwaves, if we wanted to heat something up we had to use the stove or oven ... Imagine that! Sometimes we even used a sunny window to defrost!! That's exactly what I'm talking about! You kids today have got it too easy. You're spoiled!! You guys wouldn't have lasted 5 minutes back in 1970!
