  1. I didn't see a thread for this, and I hope my explanation of this thread doesn't get too garbled...

    What do you think you will tell future generations that were popular/only your generation would have experienced/know about it when you advance into your senior years? I realize that people come here from all walks of life, so the answers will vary (and that's partially what I want to see!)

    E.g., some things that are probably being said today might be:
    - Remember the edsel?
    - Remember the gramophone?

    Some things I might say would be:
    - Remember when people had no idea what you meant by "photocopy" -- the term was "xerox"?
    - Remember the HD DVD?
    - Remember the "wardrobe malfunction"?

    What are your "remember whens"?
  2. Remember when Pluto was a planet? :alien:
  3. remember when victoria beckham was a singer and not just a famous athlete's wife
    remember when "olay" was "oil of olay"
    remember when "coke classic" was just "coke"...we didn't always have 50 million coke flavors
  4. This should be a very interesting and fun thread. I have to think about some things I would like to add.......
  5. Ooh, good ones! I never knew olay was called oil of olay!

    I have another one:
    Remember when Michael Jackson was just a singer, nothing more?
  6. When people played with Furbys and Pogs?
  7. Remember they still make it?
