We should all be dead!!!!

According to today's regulators and bureaucrats, those of us who were kids
in the 30's, 40's, 50's, 60's, 70's or even the early 80's, probably
shouldn't have survived.

Our baby cribs were covered with bright colored lead-based paint.
We had no childproof lids or locks on medicine bottles, doors, or cabinets,
and when we rode our bikes, we had no helmets.
Not to mention the risks we took hitchhiking.
As children, we would ride in cars with no seat belts or air bags.
Riding in the back of a pickup truck on a warm day was always a special
treat.
We drank water from the garden hose and not from a bottle. Horrors!
We ate cupcakes, bread and butter, and drank soda pop with sugar in it, but
we were never overweight because we were always outside playing.
We shared one soft drink with four friends , from one bottle, and no one
actually died from this.
We would spend hours building our go-carts out of scraps and then rode down
the hill, only to find out we forgot the brakes. After running into the
bushes a few times, we learned to solve the problem.
We would leave home in the morning and play all day, as long as we were back
when the street lights came on. No one was able to reach us all day. No cell
phones. Unthinkable!
We did not have Playstations, Nintendo 64, X-Boxes, no video games at all,
no 99 channels on cable, video tape movies, surround sound, personal cell
phones, personal computers, or Internet chat rooms.
We had friends! We went outside and found them.
We played dodge ball, and sometimes, the ball would really hurt.
We fell out of trees, got cut and broke bones and teeth, and there were no
lawsuits from these accidents . They were accidents. No one was to blame but
us. Remember accidents?
We had fights and punched each other and got black and blue and learned to
get over it.
We made up games with sticks and tennis balls and, although we were told it
would happen, we did not put out any eyes.
We rode bikes or walked to a friend's home and knocked on the door, or rang
the bell or just walked in and talked to them.
Little League had tryouts and not everyone made the team . Those who didn't
had to learn to deal with disappointment.
Some students weren't as smart as others, so they failed a grade and were
held back to repeat the same grade. Horrors!
Our actions were our own. Consequences were expected.
The idea of parents bailing us out if we got in trouble in school or broke a
law was unheard of. They actually sided with the school or the law. Imagine
that!
This generation has produced some of the best risk-takers, problem solvers,
and inventors, ever.

We had freedom, failure, success, and responsibility --- and we learned how
to deal with it.
And you're one of them! Congratulations.

Yep i should be a goner as well. Especially from that toxic stuff you put on a straw and blew giant bubbles that turned real stiff and WOW did you get a high from smelling those tubes! Not that we knew what getting "that feeling" meant.

We're the 'middle children' of history. No purpose or place. Advertising has us working jobs we hate so that we can buy shit we don't need. We have no great war...no great depression. Our great war is a spiritual war...our great depression is our lives.
We've all been raised on TV to believe that we'd grow up to be movie gods and rock stars...but we won't...we're slowly learning that fact...and we're very very pissed off.

Yeah, it's funny to think of all the things our government has decided to protect us from--for our own good.

A lot of us are, we just don't know it yet...

My head is filled with useless information.

And I think that those of us who spent our childhood in the 70's had it better than any later generation!

Amen brotha. I'm on the very end of the cusp for this post but I still remember a lot of that shit.

Everyone working a 9-5 on the board should READ the BOOK "Fight Club" by Chuck Pahliniuk (sp?). It'll change your perspective on things and convince you qo quit your job and pursue the things that USED to be important to us...
