    Do you tell stories of how things used to be? Well this thread is for you!!

    The rules are simple. You start your post off with "I Remember", and you also reply to the post before you and either say "I remember that" or "I don't remember that"

    I'll start.

    I remember when 2 Liter Bottles had the black cap on the bottom instead of it just being one full piece like it is now.

    I remember the first sentiment but can't agree with the second.

    I remember when Britain made great comedies like Blackadder instead of shite comedies like Little Britain.

    ... TV had VALVES in it

    ... Computer - where you loaded games using a tape deck
    ... Portable music player - was bigger than a DSLite
    ... Digital watch had a Red LED display that you had to push a button the read

    I remember all those things with great fondness!

    I remember when piracy was underground and ran on BBS's with pone numbers like "1-ITS-PRIVATE" instead of searchable websites.

    I vaguely remember that.

    I remember when games were brutal and unforgiving and no one complained about it, you just got BETTER.
