I remember being the channel selector!! The knob was broke. It was some kind of first-generation plastic that used a crimped metal ring to supposedly keep it all together under such massive twisting torque. Pliers was the solution. We kept a set on top of the TV at all times,so I could twist the shaft between "Movin' On" and "The Six Million Dollar Man".

I still remember my little sister getting out of line at the grocery store (early 70's) and my mother putting her on the cash register, pulling her drawers down and spanking the hell out of her and when I looked at the other people in line an old women warns me that if I get out of line it would be my *** next. They are little bitches nowadays aren't they?

You are absolutely right. I used to hear it all the time. About just how easy I had it.

I too am not in the over 40 club actually just hit 30 but i definetly agree. I can remeber bein the remote for all 3 channels on the TV and playing an Atari on a 10inch black and white Tv. One thing is for sure young kids today will never know the "old ways" of doing things.

Speaking of guns, at my high school the ROTC building had an indoor firing range where we fired .22 rifles for marksmanship training. During drill we carried M1 Garand rifles (with the firing pins removed). In those days there were no problems with anyone bringing a gun to school. Almost every guy at my school carried a pocket knife. Not to do harm to anyone, but we had knives in case we needed one for a tool.
We were taught by our parents about using guns and knives. At 10, I'd walk out to the woods the behind the house and hunt squirrels with my .22; gut them with my picket knife, skin them and bring them home for mom to cook on the wood burning kitchen stove.

I've had a knife in my pocket since I was about 8. Remember mumbletypeg? We used to play that all the while. The only time I've been without a pocketknife was my return trip from Anaheim the Sunday after 9/11 - stuffed it in my luggage and boy did I feel naked without it.
