True. My dad looks at it that way sometimes, since he's from the old country. After all, there once was a time when people didn't have computers, cell phones, the list goes on ... and people survived!

your dad's right. people became lazy of globalization and technology

everything at the tip of you hand. do you need to raise crop?do you need to catch fish?do you need to plant vegetables? NO.

Tech was meant to make ease but certain people take it fro granted?

This hasn't been posted for a while but it's still so true .....

TO ALL THE KIDS WHO SURVIVED THE
30's, 40's, 50's, 60's and 70's!!
Code:
First, we survived being born to mothers 
Who smoked and/or drank while they were Pregnant. 
They took aspirin, ate blue cheese dressing, 
Tuna from a can and didn't get tested for diabetes. 
Then after that trauma, we were put to sleep on our tummies in baby cribs covered with bright coloured lead-based paints. 
We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, 
Locks on doors or cabinets and when we rode 
Our bikes, we had baseball caps not helmets on our heads. 
As infants & children, 
We would ride in cars with no car seats, 
No booster seats, no seat belts, no air bags, bald tires and sometimes no brakes. 
Riding in the back of a pick-up truck on a warm day 
Was always a special treat. 
We drank water 
From the garden hose and not from a bottle. 
We shared one soft drink with four friends, 
From one bottle and no one actually died from this. 
We ate cupcakes, white bread, real butter and bacon. 
We drank Kool-Aid made with real white sugar. 
And, we weren't overweight. 
WHY? 
Because we were 
Always outside playing...that's why! 
We would leave home in the morning and play all day, 
As long as we were back when the 
Streetlights came on. 
No one was able 
To reach us all day. And, we were O.K. 
We would spend hours building our go-carts out of scraps 
And then ride them 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 did not have Playstations, Nintendo's and X-boxes. 
There were no video games, no 150 channels on cable, 
No video movies or DVD's, no surround-sound or CD's, 
No cell phones, 
No personal computers, no Internet and no chat rooms. 
WE HAD FRIENDS 
And we went outside and found them! 
We fell out of trees, got cut, broke bones and teeth 
And there were no lawsuits from these accidents. 
We ate worms and mud pies made from dirt, 
And the worms did not live in us 
Forever. 
We were given BB guns for our 10th birthdays, 
Made up games with sticks and tennis balls and, 
Although we were told it would happen, 
We did not put out very many eyes.. 
We rode bikes or walked to a friend's house 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. 
Imagine that!! 
The idea of a parent bailing us out if we broke the law 
Was unheard of. 
They actually sided with the law! 
These generations have produced some of the best 
Risk-takers, problem solvers and inventors ever. 
The past 50 years 
Have been an explosion of innovation and new ideas. 
We had freedom, failure, success and responsibility, 
and we learned how to deal with it all. 
If YOU are one of them? 
CONGRATULATIONS!"

When I wasn't sick (I have a non-curable form of non-Hodgkin Lymphoma and a Kidney Disease) I enjoyed fly fishing and running my website. I had to give up both for now but still enjoy nature and photography. Here is one of my photos......

I sit there and try to not think about penguins for 10 minutes... It's not as easy as it sounds.

Or I browse Wiki and end up with 20 different tabs open in about 10 minutes. Lol. Ctrl + click is just too easy...

And we survived very well. You can add television to that list. I still watch very little television.

It is very true. I am thankful I was born and raised in that era.
