I miss paper maps. I miss not having every corner of the woods, mountains, lakes and streams mapped out and talked about on the internet.

I hated simpler times. Pay phones, couldn't call anybody until you got home unless you had a sack full of coins and half the time the phone was on the fritz or out in the weather or the phone book was missing, no remote controls, black & white tv with nothing on those 2 channels, cars that would splatter your brains across the dashboard in a crash and got ten miles per gallon and had to be tuned up every ten thousand miles, leaky boots and the only waterproof jackets were pvc plastic, local stores closed on weekends, had to mail a check somewhere and wait 6 weeks to order something, subscribe to a bunch of magazines for a few pages of articles instead of days worth of reading at your fingertips, or worn out thirty year old books at the library, go sit in a crowded theater to watch a movie, take hours to cook food instead of minutes, beat your brains out to try to keep the house warm enough then burn up in the summer, die from some disease that simple drugs take care of. Beans and potatoes every day. Holey crappy clothes. Simpler times sucked azz. I love now.

Not 30-50 miles from where you blew up a clutch or broke an axel

I realize your pansy ass always lived 2 blocks from a Minute Mart or pay phone. Considering you NEVER post pics of you hunting, fishing or participating in any outside activities

I can certainly understand your disconnect with the examples given.

You were likely an asthmatic kid that always stayed inside and played with dolls, puzzles and coloring books.

Call collect.

Vegetables are not a modern invention.

The outdoors was and is much much better the more difficult it is to spend time in it. Joe Rogan and the endless yappy hunting shows were the worse thing possible for deer hunting. 10 grand worth of equipment does not make the hunting more enjoyable.

I don't think you have ever seen a phone booth. 30-50 miles from the nearest phone booth in TN. okay, sure.

God gave us legs especially for the fearsome.

Major thanks to all the dick heads that decided using their card (like a woman) was "easier."

Put us on the fast track to no cash.

Thanks a bunch.

And carry overwhelming firepower and skill...

Always remember... masks were just "Two Weeks to flatten the curve".

There is very real intent to control you... and enslave everything you are and rape everything you love.

I don't miss 'em so much but I'm glad there was no social media or video games when I was growing up.

I think the trend went into full swing around 2009 or so.

That’s when guys like Gruff paying for his cream soda and donut with a debit card.

“That’s $2.82, sir.”

“Ok here ya go. I’m a moron. Thanks.”

The information age has many benefits and a lot of drawbacks. Our kids grow up not learning how to read and our schools have turned into propaganda ministries. Our judicial system has evolved into another political institution. Our government is essentially ran by criminals. All this knowledge at our fingertips and we still have our resident leftist warriors who simply must have the last word on any subject. Entire industries have changed. Phone companies have given way to cell phone companies. Those little computers we carry have killed many people that insist on using them while driving. Our government now has the capability of monitoring our conversations. Our search engines that we prize for information can control the information we are allowed.
All the medical miracles we have these days still deny any viable cure for cancers. Drugs like Ivermectin that are beneficial are thwarted and villainized in favor of drugs that do us harm like vaccines that really aren't vaccines at all. Doctors aren't allowed to prescribe anything not approved by the big pharmaceutical companies because they supply our hospital conglomerates with free drugs that are far more expensive.
Modern conveniences have many benefits if used well. We have opened a door that can never be closed unless the war mongering elite manage to put us into a nuclear conflict that sends us back to the stone age. Won't that be pleasant.

Damn sad. Talk about Hope and Change!
